My nose is incredibly wide. What can be done to give my face a more balanced look?
Each rhinoplasty is customized to the patient. When you come to the office, my staff will take your photos and download them into our computer. I will meet with you and we will discuss what you would like changed about your nose. After I have examined your nose, we will discuss the options. Computer imaging is a very helpful tool that allows us to agree on the goal of surgery.
In a too-wide nose, narrowing can be undertaken in a way that gives the face a more balanced look. Osteotomies of the nasal bones with infracture will commonly be used in this situation to narrow the nose. Also, if the nasal tip is wide, narrowing of the nostrils also can help significantly. Again, this is all determined on an individualized basis.
