Few features have a more noticeable impact on facial symmetry than the nose.
And if you have a wide nose, this can not only significantly affect how you feel about your appearance, but you may also feel self-conscious, insecure, and lacking in confidence due to how your face appears and is balanced.
Fortunately, a rhinoplasty, sometimes known as a nose job, is an efficient approach to fix a wide nose and enhance both your appearance and your self-esteem.
Having Wide Noses Issues
Since larger noses tend to be flatter and do not project from the face’s profile, they can significantly alter the appearance of your face.
As a result, having a wide nose can throw off your facial symmetry by making your mouth and other facial features, like your eyes, look overly little in comparison.
Because of the restricted airflow, having flat nasal passages can also make breathing difficult.
People who have difficulty breathing because of a flat nose may also be at risk for developing sleep apnea, which can increase the likelihood that they will have a heart attack or stroke.
What Is Rhinoplasty?
A nose job, or rhinoplasty, is a reconstructive form of facial plastic surgery that treats the aesthetic (and occasionally medical) problems with the nose.
An ideal nasal-facial proportion should be restored or created as a result of a nose job, which strives to enhance the nose’s appearance, balance, and usefulness.
A nose operation can be done to improve the general symmetry of the face, open airways, and correct flaws that are either inherited or brought on by trauma.
A nose operation can treat or rectify a number of common problems, including as a bulbous tip, dorsal hump, crooked nose, bridge scoop, and excessively broad nasal bones.
Additionally, rhinoplasty can be performed to open nasal passageways that may be partially clogged due to the structure of the nose or for other reasons like a deviated septum or a previous accident.
A Wide Nose: Can Rhinoplasty Cure It?
A wide nose can be fixed, yes.
Your cosmetic surgeon can alter the appearance and symmetry of your face by reducing the size of nasal bones that are too wide and give your nose the appearance of being abnormally large.
Different Nose Jobs for a Wide Nose
Since the nose is such a delicate area of the face, rhinoplasty is a complicated process.
If your nose is excessively wide, your plastic surgeon may choose from a number of various ways to reconstruct and restore it.
Rhinoplasty for a wide nose
The upper nasal bones are broken during a wide nose rhinoplasty, sometimes referred to as an osteotomy, to narrow the nose bridge.
Your surgeon will alter the top of your nose’s bone structure during this treatment to narrow your nose’s overall width.
Your upper nasal bridge bones will be fractured by your surgeon, then the smaller pieces will be adjusted to alter the overall width of your nose.
Open wide nose rhinoplasty, closed wide nose rhinoplasty, and bulbous nose rhinoplasty are the three techniques used to conduct a wide nose rhinoplasty.
Whether your nose is excessively wide at the bridge or at the tip, as well as the degree of restructuring needed, will determine the sort of surgery that is best for you.
Wide-Open Open Rhinoplasty
Your doctor will make incisions under your nasal tip, between your nostrils, during an open wide nose rhinoplasty.
This style of wide-nose rhinoplasty gives your surgeon better access to your nasal bones, making it perfect for those whose noses require significant remodeling.
Rhinoplasty with Closed Wide Nose
Your doctor will create incisions inside the nostrils when doing a closed wide nose rhinoplasty.
This method may be the best choice for people with wide noses who just require minimal remodeling because it places restrictions on how much your surgeon can change the appearance of your nose.
Rhinoplasty for a bulbous nose
For individuals who have an extremely wide nose at the tip rather than the bridge, a bulbous closed rhinoplasty is the best option.
Having too much cartilage, having too much space between cartilages, having poorly defined cartilage, or having thick skin at the nasal tip can all result in a bulbous nasal tip.
Your cosmetic surgeon will either make an incision on the inside of your nostrils or between your nostrils while doing a bulbous nose rhinoplasty, sometimes referred to as a tiplasty (in other words, your bulbous nose rhinoplasty will either be open or closed).
Your surgeon will either connect widespread cartilage together, producing a narrower, sharper tip, implant new cartilage on the nose tip, causing the nose to lengthen and giving it a sharper appearance, or rearrange your existing septum cartilage, depending on the shape of your bulbous tip.
The fleshy portions of your nostrils’ skin that link your nose to your face may also be reduced or tied together during a procedure called as an alar reduction by your plastic surgeon.
