At Plastic Surgery Center of Dallas, Dr. Rachel Walker and her team offer surgical options for enhancing the face. For some, the nose is the area of concern and can be addressed with a procedure called the rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty refers to any elective surgery of the nose, though it may be performed for medical needs like deviated septum.
What is rhinoplasty?
The rhinoplasty procedure is any cosmetic procedure that is performed on the nose. This includes the bridge of the nose, the tip of the nose, the width of the nose, and even the nostrils. Some patients have a nose that is not a good fit for their facial shape. It may disrupt facial harmony and balance, causing patients to feel extremely self-conscious about their appearance. By working with a skilled plastic surgeon, many patients can address these issues with a simple procedure to achieve their desired results. Dr. Rachel Walker can change the shape, size, length, depth, and overall look of the nose with various surgical techniques.
Who is a candidate for rhinoplasty?
Patients who want to improve the appearance of their nose or address issues such as a deviated septum might be good candidates for the rhinoplasty treatment. During an initial consultation appointment, Dr. Rachel Walker of the Plastic Surgery Center of Dallas will evaluate the patient and talk to them about what they would like to achieve with surgery. A medical history is discussed to ensure the patient will benefit from the procedure and there will be a decreased risk of various complications. Patients should also have realistic expectations regarding what can be achieved with surgery, and should be performing the procedure for themselves and no one else.
