Nose surgery can change just a small portion of the nose or the entire shape, depending on the needs. The final result should be a nose that fits more harmoniously with the whole face. Breathing issues can also be addressed, if need be, so that breathing is comfortable and airflow through the nose is unrestricted. Dr. Torgerson, one of the best rhinoplasty surgeons in Toronto, is an expert in making these changes.
Prior to nose surgery, extensive and careful pre-operative discussions, planning, and consent signings will need to take place. Dr. Torgerson will consider the dimensions of your nose as compared to the structure of your face, the quality of your skin (thick or thin), and the prominence of your cheeks and jawline. A nose that looks great on one person, such as a celebrity, may not look great on you, even if the nose shape was copied perfectly. This is simply because the facial features around the nose and the thickness of the skin can all contribute to how well the final rhinoplasty result harmonizes with your overall facial aesthetics.
Some of the most common changes that patients request for nose surgery include refining or narrowing the tip, adjusting the tip projection, removing a bump or hump on the bridge, reducing the width and size of the nostrils, straightening a crooked nose appearance, or improving asymmetry.
