The nose is the central feature of the face and, as such, it has a great impact on a person’s overall appearance. If the nose is too wide, too narrow, or cosmetically flawed, it can affect facial proportions.
At our facial plastic surgery practice, Dr. Christopher Hove routinely performs rhinoplasty to address nasal imperfections and enhance patients’ appearance. Many people think that rhinoplasty is only intended to reduce the size of the nose or eliminate blemishes, but we also offer rhinoplasty for a narrow nose. This procedure can give our Philadelphia, PA, patients a stronger and more prominent nose that better balances out their facial features.
There are several characteristics that can make the nose look too thin or narrow, causing it to appear small in comparison to other facial features. Some of the imperfections that most commonly contribute to the appearance of a narrow nose include:
There are several techniques that Dr. Hove can use to improve the appearance of a narrow nose. The exact alterations that are made during rhinoplasty will depend on the specific needs and desires of each of our Philadelphia patients.
Some techniques that may be considered to strengthen and enhance the appearance of a narrow nose include:
Prior to rhinoplasty surgery, Dr. Hove will schedule a personal consultation with each of our Philadelphia patients. At this consultation, he will listen to the patient’s unique desires, and create a treatment plan accordingly. He will discuss the best ways to widen a narrow nose and provide digital images of anticipated rhinoplasty results based on the techniques that may be used.
Together, Dr. Hove and our patients can create a personalized treatment plan that augments the appearance of the nose, improves facial proportions, and gives patients the surgical results they desire.
