What You Need to Know Before Having Rhinoplasty

RhinoplastyMen and women seek Dr. Mosser’s expertise in rhinoplasty here at our San Francisco cosmetic surgery practice for various reasons. Some find their noses too large or too broad for their face while others think that the base is too wide, the tip doesn’t seem to “fit in” when they smile, or it’s either too projected or not projected enough.

Whatever their reasons are for wanting a nose-reshaping procedure, there’s no denying the fact that how your nose looks like will significantly affect your overall appearance and consequently how you feel about yourself.

Achieving Facial Balance and Harmony

By and large, Dr. Mosser’s primary goal in a rhinoplasty surgery is to achieve facial balance and harmony. During your assessment and evaluation for surgery, you and Dr. Mosser will carefully craft a rhinoplasty surgery plan that will make subtle changes yet dramatically improve your overall look. For Dr. Mosser, improvement through plastic surgery happens through establishing harmony, not by manipulating your fundamental appearance.

Choosing an Experienced Rhinoplasty Surgeon

Rhinoplasty itself is a very meticulous procedure and choosing an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon from the inexperienced ones will make a significant difference in the outcomes. Dr. Mosser’s philosophy focuses on preserving the best features of your natural appearance, utilizing his knowledge of aesthetics to balance and improve the desired area of your body.

Rhinoplasty is Not a One-Size-Fits-All Procedure

An experienced plastic surgeon will explain to you that there is no one-size-fits-all technique used in rhinoplasty. Consider the differences between a male and a female nose. Generally, nose-reshaping procedures in males and females tend to differ on the final shape of the nose. The goal of male rhinoplasty is to make the nasal profile more masculine in appearance — strong bridge and a lower tip. On the other hand, rhinoplasty in women often aims for a more concaved tip, slightly elevated than the ones in males.

Apart from gender, ethnic differences is another important factor that should be taken into consideration when creating a nose-reshaping surgical plan. A skilled and highly experienced plastic surgeon will recognize this fact and will be able to improve the appearance of your nose while retaining your ethnic heritage.
