Rhinoplasty or plastic surgery of the nose (nose job) is one of the most commonly performed procedures in facial plastic surgery. The term “rhinoplasty” blends the words “rhino” (nose) with “plasty” (to mold or to shape). Though Dr. Clevens’ main office is located in Central Florida, his attention to detail and dedication to aesthetics brings patients from all over Florida and the United States.
What may be helped by rhinoplasty?
- Nasal appearance
- Nasal contour
- Nasal profile
- Nasal breathing and sinus function
Half a million Americans interested in improving their nasal contour seek consultation with a facial plastic surgeon each year.
A rhinoplasty patient may be someone who is unhappy with the nose he or she was born with, while others simply want to improve their overall appearance. For some,, a traumatic injury may have distorted the nose and for others the goal may be improved breathing. Perhaps nothing has a greater impact on a person’s looks than the size and shape of the nose.
The nose is your most defining facial characteristic and a slight alteration in the contour of your nose may greatly improve your appearance. Following nasal contouring the nose has an improved aesthetic appearance as it blends into the face.
Septorhinoplasty (Septoplasty) in Melbourne and Merritt Island
A nose job is also sometimes called septorhinoplasty, or septoplasty, when it refers to a surgery that addresses both cosmetic refinement and a deviated septum. In performing septorhinoplasty, Dr. Clevens strives to create a more harmonious and balanced facial appearance while maintaining or improving your breathing and sinus function.
An important part of the evaluation of your face and nose includes the shape and prominence of your chin. People who want surgery to contour the nose may be surprised to learn that the appearance and shape of the chin plays an important role in the overall balance of facial appearance. A “weak” or short chin may make your nose appear more prominent.
