Rhinoplasty: As a Plastic Surgeon...
Article by Usha Rajagopal, MD
San Francisco Plastic Surgeon
As a plastic surgeon, the most satisfying part of my job is seeing the excitement and increased self-confidence people feel when they look in the mirror and see the face they've always dreamed of having. Perhaps there is no other procedure that can provide such an immediate and dramatic result as rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty, or a nose job, is a simple procedure that can drastically improve the appearance and proportion of your nose-- creating facial symmetry and enhancing the natural beauty of your other features.
Rhinoplasty can change:
nose width (at the bridge)
nose profile (by eliminating any bumps or depressions on the nasal bridge)
nasal tip (of noses that are bulbous, drooping, or too upturned)
The surgical procedure takes only one or two hours and requires only one treatment. The results of a nose job are permanent.
I see many people who have felt self-concious about their nose for years, and getting rhinoplasty is one of the best decisions they've ever made. They're only regret is not getting a nose job earlier. If your nose is something that you've always been self conscious about, I encourage you to consider rhinoplasty. Wouldn't it be amazing to have the face you've always dreamed about?
