Face or Fiction: Real Answers to Your Atlanta Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery) Questions

“I have a bump on the bridge of my nose, and have been thinking about rhinoplasty surgery to smooth it out. I’m worried about my nose looking fake or ridiculous after surgery, though. How can I make sure I get natural-looking results from a rhinoplasty?”

AtlantaRhinoplastyBecause the nose is both an aesthetic and operational element of the face, rhinoplasty (nose surgery) calls for very specialized and experienced surgeons. Various surgical techniques can be utilized to improve both the function and appearance of the nose. Each of our highly trained and  Atlanta plastic surgeons works to tailor rhinoplasty surgery to meet your cosmetic goals and to ensure that after your surgery, your nose matches the overall proportion of your other facial features.

The key to a natural-looking rhinoplasty result is first finding a plastic surgeon. Your surgeon should be able to look at the other features of your face to determine what elements of your nose can be altered to enhance your appearance. Another sign of a well-trained plastic surgeon is one who willingly displays before and after rhinoplasty photos. These images show you the types of results this surgeon can accomplish.

While rhinoplasty can be a reconstructive procedure, most people undergo the procedure to enhance their overall facial appearance and silhouette. There is often one feature of the nose that is bothering him or her (in your case, the bump on the bridge of your nose). The important thing to remember about rhinoplasty surgery is that it’s about creating a nose that fits your particular face and other facial features.

Rhinoplasty candidates should expect an improvement, not perfection, in their overall facial appearance. To schedule a consultation, contact one of our three locations: Northside/Sandy Springs, Alpharetta, or Newnan.
