Rhinoplasty – Case 370
This lovely woman had functional issues with breathing due to a deviated septum. At the same time she desired her nose to be improved in appearance as she felt it was too masculine. In addition her nose was mildly deviated towards her left and on front view appeared wide. The improvements are in mildly rotating the tip of her nose upwards and removing the bump on the bridge for nose along with narrowing her nose and making it straighter.
Patients who are middle-aged and older are best served by non-radical rhinoplasty where the changes are more subtle. This is to avoid the psychological shock that sometimes occurs due to their inability to integrate their new nose into their body image.
These before and after photos show a typical result by the rhinoplasty surgeon Dr Oakley Smith from Toronto.
