Your eyes and nose are the first things people look at. If your nose doesn’t fit the rest of your face, it can throw your good looks out of whack. It has to do with balancing features. For example, a large nose can distract from attractive eyes or make a correctly sized chin look small.
Women have the advantage of makeup, which can highlight eyes and lips, or brighten your cheeks—but it can only do so much for your nose. For men, there is no easy way to de-emphasize an oversized nose.
If you are uncomfortable with your nose, you no longer have compensate for it. The key is to find a very experienced surgeon, because rhinoplasty requires great surgical skills.
A Baltimore Nose Job Creates Dramatic or Subtle Changes
Rhinoplasty—nose reshaping surgery—is a cosmetic procedure that allows our Baltimore plastic surgeon to create a more attractive, proportioned nose by changing its size, slope, or shape. This operation doesn’t need to be dramatic if you seek a more subtle change. Sometimes, a small change to your nose can help your whole face blossom.
In Baltimore nose jobs are popular with both men and women seeking to streamline their profiles.
The Operation & Recovery Take Time
A rhinoplasty procedure is safe and can take up to three hours for complex cases. Your plastic surgeon will sculpt your cartilage to improve the nose’s size and shape. Most Baltimore nose jobs are performed for cosmetic reasons, but they can also be done to correct breathing problems. Called a septoplasty, this procedure involves adjusting or realigning the septum.
During recovery, the bruising and swelling from the operation gradually improve over the course of a few weeks, although you may be able to return to work sooner, depending on your job. Follow your surgeon’s post-op instructions and avoid strenuous activity for four to six weeks.
