Five steps to choosing the right nose job procedure
Fact: an attractive face is all about balance and proportion, and your nose, front-and-centre as it is, provides the basis for this appealing (or not so appealing) sense of balance. If you’ve been considering getting a nose job, a little hesitation is natural, as botched nose jobs are certainly not a thing of the past.
The good news? With the help of a skilled, qualified surgeon, your nose can be reshaped to enhance your natural beauty in the most flattering way possible. Patients at SpaMedica in Toronto benefit greatly from Dr. Mulholland’s 20+ years of experience in the world of rhinoplasty surgery.
When deciding on the right nose job procedure for you, consider the following five steps to helping you make the most informed choice possible!
- Identify problem areas
The first step in deciding what kind of nose you want is to look at what it is you don’t like about your current nose. Is it too wide, too large, or too pronounced? Does it have a large bump on the top that you wish wasn’t there? During your consultation, clearly communicate what it is you’d like to see changed.
- Consider the shape of your face
The problem with botched celeb nose jobs like Michael Jackson and Lil Kim? Their noses were simply too small for their faces. True story. When deciding on a new or altered nose, make sure you’re picking one that matches your face shape and size, so it doesn’t look disproportionate.
- Study other noses
Sifting through pictures of others’ noses (whether celebrities or past rhinoplasty patients) and picking your favourite ones can be a very useful activity in nailing down exactly what it is you’re after, clarifying your desire to both your surgeon and yourself.
- Choose the right surgeon
Rhinoplasty is a highly complex procedure that demands a specially trained cosmetic surgeon. You want to choose a surgeon with extensive experience performing rhinoplasties. Dr. Mulholland, who has dual certification in both Plastic Surgery and Ear, Nose Throat (ENT) Advance Head and Neck Oncology, is exceptionally well-positioned to achieve the best possible outcome for his patients and has over 20 years’ experience doing just that!
- Understand the different procedures
Rhinoplasty surgery is well-suited to patients in good health who wish to correct excessively large noses, dominant bridge bumps, bridge scoops, too-long or short noses, crooked noses, as well as wide nostrils and bulbous tips.
Meanwhile, a revision rhinoplasty is a reconstructive procedure specially designed for those with unsatisfactory results from a previous rhinoplasty.
Finally, an injection rhinoplasty, also known as the “5-minute nose job,” is a nonsurgical alternative that corrects bumps on the outside of the nose, concave areas, flat bridges, and can repair some existing nose jobs too.
When you schedule a rhinoplasty consultation at SpaMedica, the VECTRA 3D computer simulation system will be used to walk you through what your chosen nose will look like on your face before you decide to proceed!
