Big Nose Surgery

Noses are unsightly things that stick out in the middle of our faces and they are also the first thing people see when they look at us.  There are many jokes about people with big noses and due to this many people with big noses often have tremendous insecurities about this part of their face and would, if given the chance, jump at the opportunity to undergo big nose surgery.

Do You Need Big Nose Surgery?

If you are considering big nose surgery, you must first determine whether this procedure is necessary.  Some of the ways to tell whether your nose is too big and could benefit from rhinoplasty include:
  • Reactions from others – if your nose is really big, you will have had some negative reactions from strangers and your friends may have teased you about it – good naturedly of course.
  • Continuously being able to see the tip of your own nose – this means it sticks out quite far.
  • A nose that is not proportional to your face

What Happens During Big Nose Surgery?

If you are looking at big nose surgery, you are likely to want to reduce the size of your nose.  Generally, during surgery, you will be place under general anaesthetic and some incisions will be made on the inside of your nose.  This means that there will be no visible scarring after surgery.  The bridge of your nose and the cartilage will then most likely be broken and shaved, and the skin of your nose will be reshaped.  If your nose is also very wide, you will probably need your nostrils reshaping as well, so that the overall appearance of your nose looks much better.

What to Look For in a Good Surgeon

One thing that is very important is to enlist the help of a reputable plastic surgeon as your new nose does have to fit in with your overall ethnicity.  Michael Jackson is a perfect example of someone who took plastic surgery too far, ending up with a nose that was not only severely destroyed but also in no way matched his African American ethnicity.  Certain ethnicities generally have larger or wider noses, and changing this dramatically will mean that the rest of their features will no longer look natural.  A good plastic surgeon will always tell you honestly whether your ideas of big nose surgery are appropriate or not and whether there may be alternatives available to you.

So, if you are considering undergoing big nose surgery, do think very carefully first about whether you are doing this because your nose truly is very big, or whether it is for vanity reasons only.  As with all surgery, there are risks involved with rhinoplasty and you should think very carefully before undergoing this type of surgery.  Also, please do remember that there is no such thing as the perfect nose, or perfect beauty for that matter, and it can be very dangerous and costly if you do not understand this.
