The nose it’s a very important central feature of your face, defines in part the character and beauty of your face, participates in the symmetry and proportions of your face and thus, in the interaction with the surrounding persons. As part of these relationships you should feel yourself comfortable with it. A rhinoplasty is the surgical procedure with many variants and technical details adjusted to your needs that can help you achieve balance and beauty in your face.
Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic and sometimes reconstructive surgical procedure in order to improve or modify the shape of the nose or correct its function. There are many factors involved in the esthetic aspect of the nose, such as anterior projection, width, height, shape of the tip, nostrils, columella, base and its harmony with the rest of the facial features.
There are not specific measures, shapes or angles for a beautiful nose, but facial lines and proportions are taken in account, as well as genre, age, skin characteristics and patient’s wishes.
The unattractive esthetic appearance of the nose can be caused by hereditary factors, diseases or injuries in the past. A excessively big or small a nose, a dorsal hump, the curvature of the nose and the nasal partition , a dropping tip of the nose, asymmetry of nasal cartilages, too wide nostrils and an uneven angle between the nose and the upper lip indicate at the need for nose reshaping.
Functional disorders can be resolved in a single cosmetic and reconstructive nose surgery, like deviations of the septal cartilage, birth defects, alterations in the nasal valves and breathing and bone malposition after nose trauma.
Rhinoplasty can be combined with other surgical procedures such as chin augmentation to enhance the aesthetic results and other cosmetic surgeries like blepharoplasty, ear surgery, and lip augmentation for example.
The cosmetic rhinoplasty procedure is very technical and requires a long period of clinical practice and training so it is very important to choose experienced plastic surgeons like Dr. Bojan Ignatovski, a member of the Croatian Society of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery.
