Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic operation to improve the appearance of your nose.
The nose, being in the centre of your face, greatly influences your appearance. It is often combined with a septoplasty or trimming of the turbinates to improve the nasal airway. At your initial assessment, Dr Gillett will listen carefully to your concerns and carefully assess your suitability for rhinoplasty. The planning the rhinoplasty involves listening to your concerns, examination of the entire face as well as the inside of the nose and mouth.
3D Imaging and Simulation Of Desired Results
Photographs and 3D photographs are used to assist in the planning of surgery and to facilitate communication between Dr Gillett and yourself regarding exactly what you would like to achieve with the rhinoplasty. In some patients a cat scan is also used to assess the back of the nasal airway or the relationship between the jaws.
The objective of the surgery is to give you a nose that is well suited to your face with a good nasal airway.
