A nose job (rhinoplasty) is a form of cosmetic surgery that can improve the appearance of the nose in several ways, including changing the size of various aspects of the nose, re-shaping the nostrils, reducing the bridge, straightening a crooked line, or addressing other cosmetic concerns. With so many variables, you may be wondering how can a nose job transform your face? The Philadelphia area’s Dr. Timothy Greco will explain what patients can expect from a nose job during their consultation, which is the ideal time to get answers to specific questions.
Of course, it’s only natural to be curious about how other parts of the face will be affected when you have a nose job, especially since the nose is the central focal point of the face and plays such a critical role in overall balance. Despite being just one facial feature, even the most minor adjustments to the nose can have a major impact on your overall appearance. This is because the nose occupies a central position on the face.
Facial harmony is about proportion. When you have a nose job on its own, other features—such as the chin, brow, and cheeks—will remain intact and won’t be altered. The surgery will focus on the nose itself to make it more attractive and proportional to the face. In addition, one of the major advantages of nose jobs is that they can enhance the balance between other facial features and have a positive impact on the overall facial aesthetics.
Many people considering a nose job may feel that their nose simply doesn’t fit in well with their other facial features. The goal for rhinoplasty is to bring the nose into balance, emphasize the natural beauty of the face, and alter the nose without negatively impacting the rest of the face.
A patient may wish to draw attention to certain facial features with cosmetic surgery while drawing attention away from other features. Dr. Greco works to balance your features so they begin to work well with one another as opposed to having one feature (such as the nose) overwhelm the rest. For example, reducing a prominent bump on the bridge can give the face a softer, refined, and more elegant overall appearance.
