RHINOPLASTY – NOSE SURGERY
This 27 year-old patient from New Zealand presented in our office to see whether we can improve her profile with nose surgery. She was not satisfied with appearance of nose hump and she considered her nose to be too bulky and large for her face. She had no complaints regarding breathing in effort or during exercise.
Clinical evaluation revealed mild nasal hump, bulky, square and “poorly defined” nose tip. The nose was out of harmony with the rest of her face. Her preoperative image (left) demonstrates longer nose (when measured from forehead to the tip of the nose), heavy, bulky nose tip without refinement, poorly projected (nose tip on the left image is not the most prominent point of her nose). Her postoperative image (right) demonstrates absence of the hump, slightly shorter nose with upward rotated tip which now has the most prominent position on the nose.
A comparison of preoperative (left) and 1 year postoperative images (right) demonstrates several areas of improvement of the nose as well as the entire facial profile. Patient’s nose is shorter, tip is balanced and nicely projected, her lips and chin are more visible; this creates a true harmony of the profile.
