Can Rhinoplasty Balance Out my Facial Features?

No one's face is perfect, but some people feel that their features are particularly unbalanced. If you are unhappy with your nose, a rhinoplasty (nose reshaping) procedure could improve your overall appearance and increase your self-confidence.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. James Fernau offers options for surgical rhinoplasty and nonsurgical rhinoplasty in the Pittsburgh area. Now, you can get the nose you have always wanted – simply call Accent on Body Aesthetic Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa for a consultation. Our Coraopolis, PA team provides amazing results that can have a profound impact on your quality of life.

Why get a rhinoplasty?

The nose is a central feature of our face, so it's no wonder that people are self-conscious about its size, shape, and symmetry. Problems with the nose often stem from genetics or previous trauma. A nose that is too large, small, or crooked can impact the way we see ourselves and how others see us. Nose reshaping procedures can address these concerns and more.

Though rhinoplasty is traditionally known for improving problems with breathing, it can also create a natural-looking shape that is in harmony with the rest of your face.

Surgical rhinoplasty

If you are interested in a dramatic change to your nose, Dr. Fernau can perform a surgical rhinoplasty. This is done using general anesthesia so we can add or remove bone and cartilage as needed to achieve the desired results.

An open rhinoplasty allows us the most access to your nose so we can make the necessary adjustments. Incisions are made between the nostrils, and there is little scarring involved. A closed rhinoplasty is less invasive and involves making incisions inside the nostrils. This is a good option for people who only need a small amount of correction in Coraopolis, PA.

Nonsurgical rhinoplasty

If you are not ready or do not want to commit to surgery, Dr. Fernau also offers nonsurgical rhinoplasty for temporary results. This allows patients to "try out" a new look before making long-term changes to their appearance.

Dermal fillers and fat grafting may be used in a nonsurgical procedure. Both are minimally invasive and can be done in our office. Though this is a popular option for those who want to avoid surgery, keep in mind that results are temporary and need to be maintained with follow-up appointments.

Nonsurgical rhinoplasty is also limited in terms of what it can accomplish. Dr. Fernau can hide small deformities, but more significant changes may require surgery.

Do rhinoplasty results look natural?

The goal of nose reshaping is to provide a nose that looks natural and in proportion with the rest of your face. Dr. Fernau understands the importance of achieving subtle, yet noticeable outcomes. Our team takes the time to learn about your unique goals before addressing specific concerns.

Additionally, our board-certified plastic surgeon is experienced in performing revision rhinoplasty, which can correct previous trauma or nose surgery that did not meet your expectations.
