If you are considering a rhinoplasty, it’s important to have realistic expectations for the outcome of your procedure. However, there are several indications that you may be a good candidate for the procedure, including the size, shape, and symmetry of your nose as well as your overall health.

Generally, patients in Maryland and from around the country visit Dr. Ronald Schuster to correct a variety of issues with their nose including:

  • Nose shape and size. A rhinoplasty can help reduce the size of your nose, alter your nostril shape, remove bumps or humps on the bridge, and change the shape of your nose tip.
  • Breathing problems. Many patients seek rhinoplasty surgery for functional reasons rather than cosmetic ones. A deviated septum or other physical obstruction often makes it more difficult to breathe, which can have a significant impact on sleep or physical activity.
  • Trauma. After breaking your nose, the shape of it may change after healing, making it look crooked or asymmetrical. A rhinoplasty can help restore the nose to its original shape.

Since the recovery for a rhinoplasty procedure is physically and mentally taxing, the best candidates usually have enough mental fortitude to undergo the surgery. In addition, if you are a smoker, you must show that you can stop smoking for an extended period of time before and after your procedure to reduce the risk of complications. However, the best way to know if you are a good candidate for a rhinoplasty is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Ronald Schuster to discuss your goals.
