The anatomy of the nose is so important because it’s the main reason why your nose looks the way that it does. Because of that, it’s essential that the nose’s anatomy be accurately assessed, whether for a first-time rhinoplasty or a revision procedure, in order to develop a realistic and rational surgical plan.
While many aspects of rhinoplasty may be considered outside the non-surgeon’s “need-to-know,” we have included detailed information for your interest and your increased understanding of the nose in three major areas.
A nose that is considered ‘ideal’ is one which is harmonious with the other favorable facial features. Our perception of beauty helps define what makes an ideal shape for a female or male nose.
It is important that the rhinoplasty surgeon pay attention to both form and function. In other words, your nose should look great, but it also has to work!
Revision surgery is different from primary rhinoplasty. Revision surgery requires specialized training and expertise. It is important to find a surgeon who specializes in revision rhinoplasty.
