Rhinoplasty (Nose Reshaping)
Since rhinoplasty is a highly individualized procedure, it is important that you find a plastic surgeon with a high level of experience such as board-certified surgeon, Dr. Tantawi.
Rhinoplasty, or nose reshaping, can improve the look of the nose, creating a more attractive appearance and boosting self-confidence. Often referred to as a “nose job,” this plastic surgery procedure can also correct breathing problems associated with the nose, such as a deviated septum.
- Change nose size, improving proportion while enhancing facial harmony in relation to other facial structures
- Change nose width at the bridge, a very common complaint
- Change nose profile, by removing visible humps, depressions, or extreme sloping
- Fine-tune the nasal tip, which may be large or bulbous, drooping, or too upturned
- Fine-tune nostrils that are too large, too wide, or irregularly shaped
- Correct nasal asymmetry and deviation due to athletic injury or congenital abnormality
If you are considering having a rhinoplasty procedure, Dr. Tantawi would be happy to sit down for a consultation.
Is a Rhinoplasty right for me?
Nose cosmetic surgery is a highly individualized procedure and you should do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else’s desires or to try to fit any sort of ideal image. You should have specific but realistic goals in mind for the improvement of your appearance.
Do all Rhinoplasties look the same?
No. Dr. Tantawi contours the nose in a shape and size that is commensurate with the width of the eyes, the height of the cheekbones, mouth width, chin shape and jaw line. A well-performed rhinoplasty is defined by the face and not the plastic surgeon.
What happens during a Rhinoplasty procedure?
Incisions are made inside the nostrils to alter the nasal bones depending on the patient’s desired result. Cartilage may be trimmed. The nasal passages are then packed and an external splint is applied.
Are the scars visible?
There are no external scars after a rhinoplasty procedure.
Will I require general anesthesia?
Not necessarily. This will depend on the extent of internal surgery that is required.
