As the American Society of Plastic Surgery describes:

Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, is sometimes referred to as “nose reshaping” or a “nose job.

Nose cosmetic surgery improves the appearance and proportion of your nose, enhancing facial harmony and self confidence. Nose surgery may also correct impaired breathing caused by structural abnormalities in the nose.

While the shape of your nose is usually the result of heredity, the appearance may have been altered in an injury or during prior surgery.



Rhinoplasty Surgery can change:

• Nose size, in relation to the other facial structures
• Nose width, at the bridge
• Nose profile, with visible humps or depressions on the bridge
• Nasal tip, that is large or bulbous, drooping, or too upturned
• Nostrils that are large, wide or upturned
• Nasal asymmetry and deviation

In this blog post, you will appreciate a young lady that desired subtle changes to her tip and profile. Dr. Michelle Cabret-Carlotti spends a lot of time in consultation and the preop visit trying to understand each patient’s particular goals as beauty is in the eye of the beholder and each face will achieve facial balance differently.

The twenty-five year old featured below was 10 days out with some understandable swelling but thrilled with the result Dr. Michelle Carlotti was able to achieve for her. As you can see, a subtle rhinoplasty can make a large impact for a patient.

Final results for rhinoplasty can take 12-18 months to see. However, most of Dr. Michelle Carlotti’s patients cry tears of joy when they look at themselves as the aquaplast/cast is removed and their new nose unveiled.
