Rhinoplasty (nose job) can reshape your nose to your desired appearance

The rhinoplasty is a unique operation as it encompasses both functional and aesthetic considerations. It is also unique because the operation is different for each person.

Desired Results

What is rhinoplasty?

A rhinoplasty is a nose reshaping procedure. The nose is made up of skin, subcutaneous soft tissue, a muscle layer, cartilaginous support and underlying bony structure.

During your appointment, the 3-D camera will be used to analyse your face including nose, chin, and cheek proportions.

An ideal nose width is 1/5 of the facial width, and roughly 1/3 of the facial height. The dorsal aesthetic lines would be respected and there is a nose to lip angle of around 100-110 degrees in a woman and a lesser angle in men.

The 3-D camera will then model different possible surgery outcomes, such as:

  • the hump can be reduced or narrowed
  • the bridge of the nose height can be increased
  • the tip can be refined and narrowed
  • the tip can be lifted
  • the septum can be straightened
  • the middle third can be bolstered to help with breathing
