Most people have got used to looking themselves in the mirror straight-on, without paying any particular attention to the side profile, which also plays a leading role, and the improvement of which introduces, in many instances, a spectacular change in the person’s appearance.
What is, though, the ideal shape of a nose?
Since our nose is the only part in the face that protrudes so much, and is located in its center, it should be completely harmonized with the other characteristics of our face. That is, even a finely-shaped, but big nose would not fit a small face, and vice versa. Therefore, the ideal model is the one that blends perfectly its shape and size with the total characteristics of our face, on the one hand, and does not have any unevenness, protuberance, or imperfection, on the other.
Why is rhinoplasty the most common cosmetic surgical operation?
Exactly because every nose in itself differs in shape, volume, skin quality, and is located between the eyes, the ears, the lips, and the chin, which also have a different shape and possibly some imperfections, cases that the nose of a person is visually excellent are rare. Therefore, the goal of rhinoplasty is to give, through the correction of imperfections, a completely natural result, so that the nose goes unnoticed and the gaze of others focuses on our own gaze. So, in summing up, it could be stated that rhinoplasty is a widespread surgical process, totally painless, and with a short recovery time, and while it changes radically and effectively a person’s appearance, nobody can easily identify what causes this change.
Can rhinoplasty be combined with other operations on the face?
Of course it can be combined with operations such as face lift, blepharoplasty, forehead lifting, otoplasty, lip augmentation, and primarily genioplasty, where the combination of rhinoplasty and genioplasty comprises the operation of profiloplasty.
Revision or Secondary Rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasty offers an immediate and permanent solution to any type of deformity, and is perfectly combined with the correction of the Nasal Septum. Since male characteristics are bolder and larger in volume, the male nose will have to be completely harmonized..
In any case, however, the plastic surgeon knows how to correct it in such a way, that there are not any postoperative signs, and most of all, maintain all his male characteristics intact.
Normally, the duration of the hospital stay is 1 day (one-day clinic). The surgery takes place in the morning, and the patient departs from the hospital in the late afternoon. After two (2) days, the patient comes back for the tamponade to be removed, and within one week from the surgery, a little discreet metallic cast is removed.
