Because the nose is located in the center of the face, it can pull the rest of the facial features together for a symmetrical facial appearance. However, if your nose is crooked, bulbous, or humped, it may appear unproportioned to the rest of your face. If you are unhappy with the size, shape, or symmetry of your nose, a rhinoplasty in Brandon can help to balance your entire look. Here are some tips to make your rhinoplasty journey an easy one.

Understand What You Want

The first step towards a successful rhinoplasty is to determine what you would like to change about your nose. The best way to do this is to examine your nose in the mirror and record what you like and don’t like about your nose. It can also be helpful to find photographs of people or celebrities whose nose you like. Some of the things a rhinoplasty can achieve include:

  • Removing a bump on the nasal bridge
  • Reducing the size of the nostrils
  • Reshaping the nip of the nose
  • Changing the overall shape of the nose

Be sure to understand the different techniques, where scarring will be present, and what to expect with recovery. A good source for this information is

Seek an Expert Rhinoplasty Surgeon

When you decide to undergo a rhinoplasty procedure, it is important to seek out a board certified plastic surgeon who is skilled in rhinoplasty surgery.
