Your nose is one of the most distinctive and defining features of your face. The shape of the nose can help create facial uniqueness and character. The key feature of the nose is the shape should blend with the surrounding facial features. When the nose does not fit the face, it can bring unwanted attention to the area and take attention away from the other beautiful features of the face. Fortunately, there are options to improve the structure and shape of the nose to improve facial balance and harmony. At Carolina Facial Plastics in Charlotte, North Carolina, Dr. Kulbersh is a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon with extensive experience performing rhinoplasty surgery.
Why Get a Nose Job?
Dr. Kulbersh commonly performs rhinoplasty procedures over the years for patients with a wide range of reasons for wanting to make an improvement to their appearance. The most common reasons patients come to Carolina Facial Plastics for a procedure include:
The most commonly cited medical reason for getting a nose job is to correct a deviated septum. If the cartilage that runs through the center of the nose is crooked or poorly aligned, whether as a result of an accident or due to hereditary factors, a person may suffer from difficulty breathing, snoring, and other sinus issues, such as recurring sinus infections. A surprising majority of individuals are born with deviated septums, but a septoplasty is not necessary unless the septum causes medical problems or makes the nose appear crooked. In many cases, when the nose is operated on for medical reasons, the basic structure and appearance of the nose will be preserved unless the patient wants additional adjustments.
One of the most overwhelming reasons for getting a nose job is to improve one’s facial balance and therefore one’s self-confidence. Certain aesthetic issues, such as a crooked nose, dorsal hump, or a nose that is either too short or too long can interfere with a person’s natural beauty and can even make a him or her feel self-conscious or uncomfortable in social settings. Whether you want to make a subtle change to the look of your nose or want something more dramatic, the team at Carolina Facial Plastics will work tirelessly to achieve beautiful results that complement and highlight your unique appearance.
Many patients come to Dr. Kulbersh after suffering broken noses, often as a result of car crashes, sports-related accidents, or other blunt force trauma. If your nose has been damaged, it is possible to get the nasal bones, alignment, and appearance corrected with rhinoplasty, especially during the first one to two weeks after the injury occurred. If the bones have healed in an incorrect position, it is still possible to straighten and correct a broken nose, but the process becomes more intensive.
Preparing for a New Nose
It’s important to note that prior to any procedure, Dr. Kulbersh is dedicated to ensuring that his patients get the best results, which means taking the time to understand exactly what you are hoping to achieve with a rhinoplasty. During a comprehensive consultation, Dr. Kulbersh will conduct a physical exam of your nose and will discuss your options and motivations in order to establish realistic expectations. During the consultation, Dr. Kulbersh will use imaging morphing software to communicate with the patient to create a goal result from a rhinoplasty. Imaging morphing is the best way for a doctor and a patient to discuss the wants, desires, and set expectations for rhinoplasty. Facial plastic surgery is not something to take lightly, so it is important to choose a qualified rhinoplasty surgeon.
