Surgery of the nose is one of the most common of all plastic surgery procedures. The best candidates for a rhinoplasty are those people who are looking for an improvement in the way they look, not those searching for perfection. This surgery can reduce or increase the overall size of your nose, improve oneâ€™s profile, change the shape of the tip or bridge, and narrow or widen the nostrils. The nose is a respiratory organ, so the function of the nose must be maintained or improved with surgery.
Dr. Shadid wants to know exactly what a patient does not like about their nose or what they want to improve. He asks them to bring in photographs of themselves to point out features they like or with which have been concerned. Photos from magazines help him to understand what the patient considers to be a beautiful nose.
He conducts a thorough examination of both the inside and outside of the nose, assessing the airway, the proportions of the nose, and the relationship of the nose to the rest of the face.
Of all plastic surgery procedures, the rhinoplasty is the one in which the patient has the most input. In many regards, the nose defines how people look and how they even recognize themselves in a mirror. And it is up to each patient to tell Dr. Shadid the goals they have from rhinoplasty surgery. A plan will be formulated that is specific to each individual patient.
