What Procedures Can Be Performed in Conjunction With Rhinoplasty?

A doctor marking a woman’s nose for a rhinoplasty procedure.Rhinoplasty, often called a “nose job,” goes beyond just reshaping your nose. It’s about creating balance among your facial features. Imagine your face as a piece of art, where every feature needs to harmonize.

Think of it as fine-tuning the balance between shapes in a portrait, aiming for a more cohesive look. Many combinations can lead to results that feel right and look naturally satisfying, enhancing your facial harmony in a subtle yet impactful way.

Personalizing Your Aesthetic Journey

It’s essential to consult with a qualified plastic surgeon to discuss your goals and learn how procedures, including rhinoplasty, can be tailored to your unique facial structure and aesthetic desires.

It is also crucial to choose a surgeon who understands the artistry and science behind facial aesthetics. They can guide you toward the best options, ensuring the changes enhance your confidence and comfort with your appearance.

Procedures That Can Be Performed in Conjunction With Rhinoplasty

These surgeries can be performed alongside a rhinoplasty to enhance overall facial balance and address functional concerns.

  • Septoplasty: This procedure is often combined with rhinoplasty for patients with a deviated septum, which can cause breathing difficulties. Septoplasty straightens the septum, allowing for better airflow through the nose. 
  • Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty): Eyelid surgery can be done alongside rhinoplasty to rejuvenate the eye area, reduce bags under the eyes, or correct droopy eyelids. This combination can brighten the face’s overall appearance and enhance the aesthetic outcomes of rhinoplasty.
  • Chin Implant (Mentoplasty): A chin implant can balance facial proportions, especially in cases where rhinoplasty alone may not achieve the desired harmony. Adjusting the projection of the chin complements the reshaping of the nose, leading to a more balanced side profile and improved facial symmetry.
  • Cartilage Grafts: During rhinoplasty, cartilage grafts from the septum, ear, or rib can add structure, shape, or support to the nose. These grafts are particularly beneficial for reconstructive purposes or when making significant changes to the nose’s appearance. They can help achieve more pronounced or desired aesthetic outcomes.
