The nose is the central part of the face, which means it can attract attention if it’s too large or slightly asymmetrical. Small changes to the nose can greatly impact a patient’s self-confidence and sense of beauty. While patients often request rhinoplasty surgery at my Frisco, TX, practice to fix common issues (nasal bump, a boxy or bulbous tip, or asymmetry), that does not mean all modern rhinoplasties look exactly the same.
What is the perfect nose?
In the past, many rhinoplasty patients requested the same type of adjustments: remove bumps, make the nose smaller, and create a sloping bridge. A ‘ski-slope’ nose was considered the most conventionally attractive look. As a result of so many people looking for the same style, rhinoplasty gained a reputation for producing cookie-cutter results that made it evident someone ‘had work done.’
We ascribe to the modern thought process that everyone’s ideal nose is unique to their facial features and ideal aesthetic. With Dr. Hill, it is not like Mr. or Mrs. Potato Head where everyone gets the same nose. Due to recent trends, more patients than ever are seeking ‘tweakments’—small adjustments during rhinoplasty that don’t completely change the nose’s appearance. While symmetry and proportion remain ideals of most rhinoplasty procedures, many patients prefer to preserve a few unique characteristics of their noses, producing a more naturally attractive shape.
How much can a nose job change?
Rhinoplasty requires a keen and well-trained aesthetic eye, as small changes can have a major impact on the final result and your overall look. The margin for a successful rhinoplasty can be measured in millimeters. To deliver optimal results, a surgeon has to deliver a harmonious nose that is consistent with a patient’s facial features. You can see the results Dr. Hill achieves by browsing through his patients’ before and after pictures.
During your consultation, and even the day of your surgery, Dr. Hill will have you list the 3 things you want to change or improve upon with nose surgery. This is an exercise to make sure everyone helps to develop their individualized treatment plan. We could create what we feel is the textbook-perfect nose, but if it does not meet a patient’s own ideal nose then the operation is not a success. Plastic surgery is a personal decision, and an outcome is only successful if it addresses a patient’s individual goals and aesthetics.
