If you are considering whether you should get a nose job or not, there are several things to keep in mind while making your decision. If you are unhappy with your nose due to genetics, effects of aging, an injury, or just the size and shape of it, you may be one of the millions who choose to seek out a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon.

If you live in the Houston area, you have a variety of surgeons from which to choose. However, as one of the most prominent features of the face, the nose helps define lines and aesthetic value. Even small changes can greatly change one’s appearance and depending on the skill, expertise and experience of your surgeon, this could be a negative or positive experience. That’s why when it comes to getting a nose job Houston patients trust none other than Dr. Patt – a qualified plastic surgeon with years of experience and the talent to work with the natural beauty of your face.

The majority of individuals seeking out rhinoplasty do so in order to improve the appearance of their face by reshaping the nose. Others require surgery to improve the functionality of the nose and a small percentage need reconstruction surgery after an accident or trauma to the face. In any case, it is the surgeon’s main job to give you a nose that adds attraction while maintaining the natural values of the face without looking like you have undergone surgery.

To be an ideal candidate for a nose job, you should be in good health, a non-smoker, have expectations that are realistic when it comes to end results and understand the risks involved with any kind of surgery. The nose reaches its full maturation growth by the time an individual reaches fifteen to sixteen years of age. Before this time, rhinoplasty is not recommended unless reconstruction surgery is necessary or there are significant breathing problems.
Typical reasons for seeking out rhinoplasty include:

  • Desiring a nose that is in better proportions to other features of the face
  • Reducing or eliminating any bumps along the bridge of the nose
  • Having a nose that is too wide for the face
  • Reducing a bulbous, enlarged, protruding or droopy tip of the nose
  • Reshaping flared or pinched nostrils
  • Fixing an off-center or crooked nose
  • Correcting an asymmetrical nose
  • Alleviating any breathing problems due to issues within the internal structure of the nose such as with a deviated septum

Dr. Patt will help you assess your expectations and your desired end results, as well as go over your skin quality and your medical history and reassure you of your mental preparedness in choosing rhinoplasty.
