One of the most important features of your face is your nose. Our staff at Better Looks is especially aware of this and our surgery program would not be complete without us offering a top of the line rhinoplasty. Commonly known as a nose job, this procedure if perfect if you aren’t pleased with the tip or the bridge of your nose or its overall outline or if you have suffered from some kind of injury and would like to restructure your face.
This procedure can reduce or increase the size of your nose, decrease the width of your nostrils, modify the angle between your nose and your upper lip and re-shape the outline of your nose bridge. Not only can it correct injuries, but it can also help alleviate certain breathing problems.
Depending on your age group, there might be different considerations you might need to keep in mind. Rhinoplasty (nose job) is a really popular procedure among teenagers and their emotional, psychological and social growth must be considered at all times. Usually, this surgery is performed after a teenager’s growth spurt (14 or 15 for girls, a little later for boys).
A rhinoplasty (nose job) treatment usually takes 1-2 hours in total, though more complex surgeries can take longer. During the process, the skin of the nose is separated from its supporting structure of cartilage and bone. The surgeon then proceeds to sculpt this framework to the desired shape. The character of the sculpting will depend on the patient’s needs and wants, as well as with the problem he/she presents. The doctor’s preferred technique will also affect the process. Once this part of the operation is done, the skin is placed back and re-draped over the area.
