Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic operation carried out to improve the appearance of your nose.
Due to its position in the centre of the face, the nose greatly influences your appearance and can cause both men and women to lose confidence in how they look.
If the shape and/or size of your nose reduces your confidence and makes you self-conscious, Rhinoplasty may be able to help you feel better about your appearance. This type of surgery is one of the most life-changing procedures that can be sought, and many patients choose it for both cosmetic and corrective reasons.
Dr Gillett can help you get a natural looking nose that suits your face and complements your other facial features. The results will leave you with the nose you have dreamed of, or one similar to what you had prior to the accident that left you with an imperfect nose.
Common reasons people choose Rhinoplasty Surgery
Patients choose nose reshaping surgery for a number of reasons – all of which are individual. It is important to always make sure that you are choosing the procedure because you want it, not because somebody else does.
Some of the common cosmetic reasons patients cite for having a rhinoplasty are:
- Bumps on the bridge or tip of the nose;
- A large size or narrow nose bridge
- An odd shape that other people often point out;
- The nose looks “out of place” compared to your other facial features;
- Nostrils that seem too large/wide or narrow/small;
Health or medical reasons for rhinoplasty are:
- Dissatisfaction with previous nose job surgery
- An injured or broken nose
- A nose that looks crooked or bent;
- Snoring problems caused by a nose that is always blocked;
- Problems breathing through your nose;
- A deviated septum or collapsed nasal bridge.
Surgery is often life-changing for Rhinoplasty patients. A nose job can give you the following results:
- A nose that suits your face and complements your other facial features
- A more balanced or symmetrical face shape;
- Less anxiety about your side profile;
- More self-confidence about being photographed from a variety of angles;
- More hours of high-quality sleep if a deviated septum is repaired.
During your consultation
At your initial consultation, Dr Gillett will listen carefully to your concerns and assess your suitability for rhinoplasty. Planning the rhinoplasty involves listening to your expectations and examining the entire face, including the inside of the nose and mouth.
Dr Gillett will meet with you to discuss the surgery process and the recovery period, as these all differ depending on the patient and your personalised procedure. The Rhinoplasty Specialist Surgeons will explain the nose reshaping surgery procedures, including the differences between open and closed Rhinoplasty options and your recovery time.
Patients are able to choose a shape or profile for their nose during the consultation. Although it is unlikely the end result will be an exact match, it will almost certainly be very similar. When you are happy with the expected result and have discussed all the available options for your Rhinoplasty surgery, planning for the procedure will begin. Recovery will be included in this conversation, as this will affect the final proportions and balance of the nose with your face shape.
Dr Gillett is highly experienced in creating natural looking and aesthetically attractive results for Rhinoplasty. The consultation will be very informative, as communication is key to ensuring that you have realistic expectations and receive the desired result. It can be useful to look at Before & After photos of Dr Gillett’s previous patients to get a general idea of the nose you want.
