How Rhinoplasty Can Enhance Facial Proportions

By: Dr. Angelo Cuzalina


 Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a "nose job," is a frequently requested procedure that cosmetic surgeons, like Dr. Angelo Cuzalina at Tulsa Surgical Arts in Tulsa, OK, offer to their patients. The nose, positioned centrally on the face, profoundly impacts facial balance and symmetry. By adjusting the nose's shape and size, rhinoplasty can significantly alter the overall appearance of the face, contributing to a more harmonious and proportional look, thereby enhancing one's overall facial aesthetics.  

What are the aesthetic benefits of rhinoplasty?  

There's a multitude of aesthetic improvements that rhinoplasty can bring about. These include:    

  • Altering the size of the nose to harmonize with other facial features  
  • Modifying the nose's shape, such as the bridge, nostrils, or tip  
  • Rectifying a crooked nose or removing an unattractive hump on the bridge  
  • Enhancing symmetry for noses that are naturally off-center  
  • Improving function or breathing especially if the patient has a past history of trauma or a known septal deviation 

Each of these modifications can result in a more balanced facial appearance, contributing to an individual's self-esteem and confidence and potentially influencing their interactions and relationships with others.

What other benefits can rhinoplasty offer?

Besides the aesthetic enhancements, rhinoplasty has additional functional benefits. These include:

Improvement of breathing difficulties: For some patients, rhinoplasty can correct structural problems like a deviated septum, enhancing nasal function and breathing capabilities.

Enhancing sleep quality: In some cases, rhinoplasty can rectify issues leading to sleep disturbances, such as snoring or sleep apnea, leading to more restful nights.
