Rhinoplasty, Nose Job Surgery
When the nose is the first thing that is noticeable on a face, it can detract from the other features that deserve more attention. A crooked nose from a sports injury, a large hump or a bulbous tip can all draw attention to the center of the face. This can detract from other features such as a beautiful smile or the eyes. Rhinoplasty can change the shape or size of the nose, allowing for other facial areas to get the attention they deserve.
Residents in Decatur that are embarrassed due to a large nose or want to change the shape of their nose have a talented facial surgeon in the area for rhinoplasty. Dr. Benjamin Stong has a dual board certification in facial plastic surgery and reconstructive surgery and otolaryngology head and neck surgery. His credentials and experience are extensive. He also has an artistic eye for detail that cannot be learned, giving his patients access to excellence in rhinoplasty, right here in the Atlanta area.
Rhinoplasty is one of the most commonly sought after facial plastic surgeries due to its impact on the overall appearance of the face. For men, the “nose job” is the most common facial cosmetic surgery performed. Changing this one feature can give both men and women more self-confidence and improve their self-esteem in social situations.
When Rhinoplasty Is Appropriate
Choosing to undergo any elective surgery is a major decision and rhinoplasty is no different. This procedure is for adults that have made the choice to improve their appearance when their nose is misshapen or disproportionate. For many, the benefits of feeling a higher level of self-confidence and possible improvements in breathing function can outweigh the cost and minor risks of the procedure.
People seek rhinoplasty for a variety of reasons. A large or oddly shaped nose can overtake the beauty of the face. Altering the nose can create more symmetrical and balanced features. This can make the nose just one of those features, not the first one you see. An overhang or bulbous tip can be changed with tip plasty if that is the only area on the nose that needs changing. Other reasons for rhinoplasty include crooked or humped bridges, large nostrils, a flat bridge or an over-sized nose.
Dr. Ben Stong uses the latest advances in facial plastic surgery techniques combined with his unique ability to create aesthetic beauty to perform rhinoplasty for our patients. He can use open or closed rhinoplasty to reshape or resize the nose, depending on the patient. Closed rhinoplasty can be used for some simpler procedures for straightening the bridge, but open rhinoplasty is the preferred method for more complicated reshaping procedures. Closed procedures enter through the nasal passage, while open rhinoplasty enters through a small incision at the base of the nose between the nostrils.
