Everything You Need to Know About Rhinoplasty!

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 07, 2015 AT 9:40 AM by Dr. Roger Bassin

The centerpiece of your facial profile, your nose has a profound effect on your image. Thus, it’s no surprise that nose surgery is one of the most popularly-requested plastic surgery procedures, as many patients are concerned about nose asymmetries, such as bumps or lack of volume. Whether you’re looking to correct these types of imbalances or more, rhinoplasty can address an assortment of aesthetic and functional issues. Bassin Center for Plastic Surgery in Tampa offers different types of rhinoplasty for the perfect shape!

Why Undergo Rhinoplasty?

You know your facial features better than anyone. That slight bump on the tip of your nose might be hard to spot for others, but may stick out like a sore thumb to you. Undergoing rhinoplasty can fix aesthetic conditions like these to add balance without dramatically altering your entire profile.

What Types Of Rhinoplasty Are There?

Patients can undergo either open or closed rhinoplasty, depending on their individual circumstances and goals. Closed rhinoplasty involves undergoing incisions inside of the nose, while open rhinoplasty includes an additional incision between your nostrils at the base of your nose. Additionally, revision rhinoplasty can correct any damage or incorrect healing as a result of a previous nose procedure. Our rhinoplasty surgeons are experienced in all of these types of procedures.

Is Rhinoplasty Purely An Aesthetic Procedure?

Rhinoplasty can correct more than your look! Many patients undergo nasal surgery to correct functional issues, like breathing deficiencies. For example, conditions such as a deviated septum or nasal polyps can be treated without altering your nose’s outward appearance. The aesthetic and functional benefits of nose surgery make it an extremely viable plastic surgery solution for many.
