Aside from its location, the nose has a defining central feature in the face because of its ability to promote balance and harmony alongside other facial features. If any part of your nose can significantly put your face out of proportion — or neglect to highlight your face’s other features — subtle improvements from rhinoplasty can transform your overall look and boost self-confidence at the same time.
Problems with the appearance of your nose, may it be size, asymmetry, width, or its overall profile, is best remedied with rhinoplasty.* Often, these problems are a result of injury and heredity. However, it’s worth noting that imperfections in the nose are not only attributed to imbalances in the face. They can also arise from hollow or flat cheeks, a small chin, low jaw or other features in the face that need enhancement to improve overall facial appearance. In fact, it’s not uncommon for other facial rejuvenation procedures like facial implants to be completed alongside a nose reshaping procedure.
Individuals with obstructed air passageways due to genetics or previous injuries will benefit from septoplasty. Also known as nasal septum surgery, this procedure may be performed in conjunction with cosmetic rhinoplasty and is covered by most insurance policies. Often, a detailed assessment and evaluation into the cause of the nasal obstruction may be required before an insurance company authorizes surgery.
