Because the nose is such an integral part of a person’s face, both cosmetically and functionally, we believe that the nose should never be the first facial feature that is noticed by another person. Instead, beautiful eyes, skin, and a smile should be appreciated first, while the nose emphasizes their beauty by being in perfect harmony and balance with those features. Being an expert head and neck surgeon with a special training in rhinoplasty surgery in Charlotte, North Carolina, one of Dr. Jonathan Kulbersh’s specialties is helping his patients achieve a nose that fits their face.
Getting A Balanced Nose
At Carolina Facial Plastics, there are three important factors that we always strive to accomplish when performing a rhinoplasty for a patient. Attaining all three help to improve the nose by creating a natural and balanced final result.
1. Smooth Bridge
Achieving a smooth nasal bridge is accomplished when the profile view of the nose matches the frontal view. Typically, a straight nose without any hump is best for blending the nasal area into the rest of the face, bringing a complimentary look to your other features. Depending on the culture or ethnicity of the patient, an appropriate profile may require a small bump or a slight upturn, all which can be customized during your procedure.
2. Appropriate Width
One of the most common reasons to seek a rhinoplasty and ethnic rhinoplasty is due to a nose that is too wide. When this occurs, the nose is often flat from a profile view, causing other facial features to look out of balance. During a rhinoplasty for these patients, we will narrow the nose to not only appear smaller, but more triangular.
3. Slight Upward Turn
Building a nose that is ever-so-slightly turned upward can bring the finishing touch of a natural look to the patient. When doing this during a rhinoplasty, we are always very aware of how much of an upward turn to provide for the individual having the surgery, as a nose that is too upward turned on a male can appear feminine.
