People who are unhappy with the appearance of their nose may discuss with a cosmetic surgeon for the possibility of rhinoplasty. Aesthetic concerns that are commonly corrected with rhinoplasty plastic surgery include wide nasal tip, crooked nose, bump on the nasal bridge, and disproportionately smaller or larger nose size.
Dr. Gary Motykie is a board certified plastic surgeon who will carefully evaluate whether the patient is a suitable candidate for nose surgery. Patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities who are seeking rhinoplasty may consult with Dr. Motykie to determine how suitable the procedure may be in their case.
A Personal Decision
An experienced cosmetic surgeon will always encourage the patient to take a decision on the basis of their very personal innermost needs when considering rhinoplasty or similar procedures. One of the most important aspects while determining the suitability of a patient for a plastic surgery procedure such as rhinoplasty is that it is something that the patient and only the patient is wanting to have. Rhinoplasty must be an independent choice, and not merely prompted or influenced by another individual or the image of a celebrity.
Patients with a positive outlook, clear aesthetic goals, and realistic expectations usually make the best candidates for rhinoplasty cosmetic surgery. The challenges to a procedure may occur when the patient brings along a picture of a celebrity from a magazine and insists on achieving the specific nose appearance.
While such images can provide the cosmetic surgeon will an indication of the patient’s aesthetic needs, but achieving an identical nose may not be realistic, considering the current nasal anatomy and other facial features of the patient. Dr. Motykie will show rhinoplasty before and after pictures of other patients to provide an idea of what to expect from the surgery to his patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other areas.
Common Aesthetic Conditions
Rhinoplasty candidates can typically benefit from the procedure if they are bothered by one or more of the following conditions in the appearance of their nose:
- The width of the nose is disproportionate to the face.
- The nasal tip is wide, droopy, bulbous, or upturned.
- The overall shape of the nose is uneven.
- The nose profile is irregular.
- The nasal bridge is thicker than required.
- The overall size of the nose is larger than required.
- The nose is flatter or less pronounced.
Some candidates may need rhinoplasty not just for aesthetic reasons, but also for medical reasons. If the patient suffers from nasal deformity by birth or acquires such condition following a traumatic facial injury, the surgeon may recommend a nose surgery. Faulty nose shape can cause obstruction in breathing, which can be corrected with nose surgery. Other nasal functions can also be improved with rhinoplasty procedure in some cases.
Candidates who are younger than 14 years of age may not be considered suitable for a rhinoplasty procedure. It is important that the nose structure should be fully developed before a rhinoplasty can be performed, particularly for aesthetic reasons.
