Should I get a nose job?

Choosing to undergo nasal enhancement surgery is a personal decision that should be carefully considered and discussed with your plastic surgeon. While traditional aesthetic rhinoplasty is considered an elective procedure that is performed for cosmetic reasons, some patients may choose a functional rhinoplasty to address health-related concerns, like obstructed breathing or snoring. During your initial consultation for rhinoplasty surgery in Baltimore, MD, Dr. Schultz will closely examine your nasal anatomy, discuss your specific cosmetic concerns and/or functional symptoms, and recommend the most appropriate course of action for you. If he determines that you may benefit from rhinoplasty, Dr. Schultz will recommend the type of nose job that is best suited to your particular needs and goals. Regardless of which kind of rhinoplasty is performed, each nose job will be customized to ensure the most optimal outcome possible.

What characteristics of the nose can be altered during rhinoplasty surgery?

Almost any cosmetic feature of the nose can be improved with rhinoplasty. Whether you are hoping to address a specific and isolated concern — like asymmetric nostrils — or simply improve the overall size and shape of the nose for better facial balance and harmony, Dr. Schultz can develop a customized surgical plan for you. Some of the most common nasal features that are enhanced with rhinoplasty surgery include:

  • Bridge of the nose
  • Nasal tip
  • Nostrils

More specifically, the following concerns are among the most popular cosmetic and functional issues leading patients to consider nose job surgery:

  • Asymmetric nose
  • Humped nose
  • Bump in nose
  • Prominent dorsal hump
  • Upturned nose (“pig nose”)
  • Large nostrils
  • Crooked nose
  • Deviated septum
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Wide nose
  • Flat nose
  • Bulbous nasal tip
  • Pointy nose
  • Hooked nose

Will I still look like myself after a nose job?

While it is certainly possible to make dramatic improvements to the nose with rhinoplasty surgery, Dr. Schultz understands that many patients hope to enhance their nose without losing their unique facial appearance or cultural identity. With this in mind, Dr. Schultz takes great care to listen to each patient’s personal preferences and formulate a rhinoplasty treatment plan to best align with those individual goals.
