Understand that every nose is different

Rhinoplasty or “nose reshaping” surgery is one of the most complex cosmetic surgical procedures. The nose is the most prominent part of a person’s face and everyone’s nose is uniquely their own. With its three-dimensional shape and different angles giving patient’s their profile, it makes every rhinoplasty surgery unique in order to optimize the best results with each one. The slightest change to this small target area can change the way the nose functions and looks, which surgically makes it an intricate procedure. All of these factors are why surgical experience and skill are imperative to finding the right surgeon for your rhinoplasty experience.

The need for Rhinoplasty

There is a reason why rhinoplasty procedures are one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries right behind liposuction and breast augmentation. In some cases, patients have a cosmetic need they want to change about their nose while some patients have a medical need. A deviated septum or breathing issues, due to a broken nose, are medical reasons why individuals consider rhinoplasty in order to be more comfortable. While others consider this surgery to change an aspect of their nose they dislike. Some patients feel their nose is too wide or too large, while others wish to have a softer curve, or want removal of a nasal bump. Changing the nose so that it is more cosmetically appealing is the primary reason why people seek out rhinoplasty surgery. Whether it is an aesthetic or medical need, Rhinoplasty requires an experienced, qualified Las Vegas plastic surgeon with distinct experience in understanding the anatomy of the nose.

Surgeon considerations

A board-certified, experienced surgeon, like Dr. Khorsandi, is an essential part when considering a rhinoplasty procedure. Rhinoplasty is a surgical balancing act to give patients beautiful results while making sure their nose still functions properly. A plastic surgeon needs a creative mindset as well as surgical experience when performing this complex, intricate cosmetic surgery. Here are some important factors to consider for your plastic surgeon:
