Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty)
Nose Reshaping Surgery in Tampa
As the central-most feature of the face, the nose gets plenty of attention. However, we don’t seem to mind it too much unless it is disrupting the balance between other features of the face. Men and women who are uncomfortable with the appearance of their nose often struggle with low self-confidence and may be unhappy with their overall appearance. Rhinoplasty can help to bring the nose into balance with the rest of the face, providing the patient with their ideal look.
Rhinoplasty is performed by Dr. Stan Castor at Artisan Aesthetics Plastic Surgery and Laser Center. Dr. Castor is a board certified Plastic Surgeon in Tampa, and is highly skilled and experienced with rhinoplasty procedures. He can help you improve the appearance of your nose with beautiful, natural-looking results.
Is Rhinoplasty Right for Me?
Rhinoplasty, or surgery to reshape the nose, is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures.
The nose surgery can be used to:
- Reduce or increase the size of your nose
- Change the shape of the tip or the bridge
- Narrow the span of the nostrils
- Or change the angle between your nose and your upper lip
It may also be used to correct a birth defect or injury, or help relieve nasal-related breathing problems. If you’re considering rhinoplasty, this information will give you a basic understanding of the procedure, such as when it can help, how it’s performed, and what results you can expect. It can’t answer all of your questions, since surgery depends on the individual patient and the surgeon. Please ask Dr. Stan Castor about anything you don’t understand.
Rhinoplasty can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence, but it won’t necessarily change your looks to match your ideal, or cause other people to treat you differently. Before you decide to have surgery, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them with Dr. Castor during your consultation.
The best candidates for rhinoplasty are people who are looking for improvement, not perfection, in the way they look. If you’re physically healthy, psychologically stable, and realistic in your expectations, you may be a good candidate. Dr. Castor performs rhinoplasty to meet your aesthetic goals at his office in Tampa Florida.
Age may also be a consideration. Dr. Castor prefers not to operate on teenagers until after they’ve completed their growth spurt—around 14 or 15 for girls and a bit later for boys. It’s important to consider teenagers’ social and emotional adjustment, too, and to make sure it’s what they, and not their parents, really want.
How is Rhinoplasty Performed?
The incisions for your rhinoplasty procedure will typically be kept within your nostrils to prevent visible scarring. The exact location of your incision may vary depending on your unique situation. After making the necessary incisions, Dr. Castor will carefully access the underlying bone and cartilage of the nose. He will then reshape your nose to match your goals and expectations discussed during your procedure.
