Your nose is one of your most prominent facial features. When your nose is in proportion to the rest of your features, it creates a balanced facial appearance. But if it is not proportional, it may overwhelm your other features. If you would like to improve the size or shape of your nose, you may be a good candidate for rhinoplasty.
Dr. Mark Crispin has performed rhinoplasty to help many patients in the Atlanta area improve the appearance of their nose and achieve a more balanced facial appearance. In addition, Dr. Crispin can perform rhinoplasty surgery to improve functional issues with your nose that impair your breathing.
Ideal rhinoplasty candidates would like to improve one or more of the following issues with their nose:
- Crooked or bent nose
- A nose that is too large or too small
- Misshapen nose
- Humps or bumps on the bridge of your nose
- A nose with a bulbous tip
- Asymmetrical nostrils
- Flared or pinched nostrils
- A wide nose
- Functional issues such as a deviated septum
In addition, you must wait until your nose has fully developed to undergo the procedure. This typically occurs at approximately age 14 or 15 for girls, and later in the teenage years for boys. It is also important for you to be in good overall health and have realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Crispin will evaluate your facial features and listen carefully to your goals in order to determine whether rhinoplasty is the right option for you. If he feels it is the best course of action, he will devise a customized treatment plan to address your unique needs and goals.
