Rhinoplasty surgery is one of the many options available when it comes to changing the appearance of your face. The nose is the focal point of the face, and helps to create beautiful symmetry. If you are seeking a way to improve the appearance of your nose, as well as boost your self-confidence, rhinoplasty surgery may be right for you.

Decide What You Want

When it comes to the rhinoplasty process, you should first determine what it is you would like to change about your nose. While you have probably already been thinking about it, it is now the time to narrow it down. A good way to go about this is by standing in front of the mirror so that you can examine your nose and face and write down exactly what you would like to change. If it is hard to express in words what you would like to change, it may also be helpful to go through magazines and find pictures of what your ideal nose would be.

Do Your Homework

Before undergoing any type of facial plastic surgery, it is important to do your homework. There are various ways that a rhinoplasty can be done, including the closed and open techniques. During your consultation, Dr. Bohley will examine your nose and discuss which technique is right for you.

During the open rhinoplasty technique, a small incision is made between the nostrils in the columella. This allows for full visualization of the internal nasal structures. While this may leave a small scar, it will fade with time. During the closed technique, all incisions are made inside of the nose, while through there is no scarring left on the outside.

Seek a Consultation

When seeking out a consultation for your rhinoplasty surgery, be sure to look for a board-certified plastic surgeon. Not all physicians are created equally, and board-certified plastic surgeons like Dr. Bohley have achieved many years of education and training to earn the title to provide optimal results.
