According to The American Society of Plastic Surgery, rhinoplasty was the most popular cosmetic procedure for patients under the age of 30 in 2012. As a rhinoplasty facility in Charlotte, we are not surprised by this data. In fact, we find that many young patients who seek rhinoplasty to improve the appearance and/or function of the nose experience a significant improvement in quality of life.
It is common to think of a rhinoplasty as a strictly cosmetic procedure aimed at improving aesthetics. While that is often the case, many patients also seek septoplasty or opening of nasal valves at the same time to improve their breathing. A deviated septum, whether present from birth or the result of injury, can impair a patient’s ability to breath properly through the nose. This can limit their exercise tolerance or reduce their quality of sleep. There are valves inside of the nose that can be narrowed due to the nasal anatomy. During a rhinoplasty, these valves can be opened to improve breathing. Through an evaluation, we can decide if a patient is going to need a septoplasty and/or nasal valve reconstruction. These procedures are complementary and often performed together.
The nose is the centerpiece of the face. A beautiful nose is one that blends in with the surrounding facial features. A nose that does not fit the face can bring attention to the nose and away from the other beautiful features, the eyes, smile, and skin. During development, the changes of the nose can create a nose that does not fit the face. At this stage of development, many patients begin to understand this relationship and seek out their options to improve their facial harmony. A successful rhinoplasty in an appropriate patient can result in improved self-esteem.
Rhinoplasty in Charlotte
At Carolina Facial Plastics, we perform primary rhinoplasty, revision rhinoplasty, ethnic rhinoplasty, nasal obstruction surgery, and septoplasty procedures. When performing a nose job in Charlotte, we emphasize a natural looking result that brings harmony to the face as a whole. It is crucial that patients seek a highly trained and experienced facial plastic surgeon when seeking rhinoplasty to ensure optimal results. As a Beverly Hills trained facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Kulbersh studied under some of the best facial plastic surgeons in the country and his patients can be assured that their satisfaction is my number one priority.
As a dermal filler specialist, Dr. Kulbersh also offers non-surgical rhinoplasty. While the non-surgical rhinoplasty cannot reduce the size of the nose, it can temporarily reshape or smooth out the nose. Rhinoplasty without surgery involves the injection of the hyaluronic acid gel filler Restylane to achieve the desired contour. The results of a non-surgical nose job generally last about 9-12 months and the treatment can be repeated when results wear off. Non-surgical rhinoplasty is often a good procedure for those people looking to make a subtle change to the appearance of the nose.
