Rhinoplasty is the medical name for plastic surgery performed on the nose. It’s often a cosmetic procedure used to change the shape or size of the nose. Rhinoplasty can fix the problem whether your nose is too large, too small, has a bump or depression on the bridge, a tip that’s enlarged or hooked, or the two nostrils are different sizes.
Nose surgery is also frequently used to correct a structural defect and improve breathing when airflow is blocked by the thin wall between the two nasal passages. Whatever your reason for nose surgery, call Plastic Surgery and Dermatology Associates to learn how Dr. Mirali’s surgical training and experience can help achieve the nose you desire.
Rhinoplasty is safe for everyone over the age of 14 years. When rhinoplasty is done at a younger age, it may affect growth centers, which could stop the nose from growing or lead to malformation. As a result, experts say that rhinoplasty is safe to consider after facial structures are fully developed, which occurs late into adolescence.
There’s another factor that everyone at any age needs to consider. The key to successful nose surgery is having realistic expectations about the outcome and realizing that even a little change can have a big impact on your appearance. Dr. Mirali works closely with you to determine exactly what you want to change and to help you have a clear vision of how it will look.
Rhinoplasty demands equal parts of artistic and surgical skills. A keen and practiced eye for aesthetics can create a new nose that meets your requirements while appearing natural. Surgical expertise should never be underestimated since nose surgery often relies on very small surgical changes.
When you choose Dr. Mirali, you gain a plastic surgeon who takes the time to understand your preferences and who has extensive training and experience in advanced surgical techniques. Instead of avoiding mirrors, call Plastic Surgery and Dermatology Associates to learn how rhinoplasty can transform your nose to enhance your natural beauty.
