If your nose is crooked, overlarge, or simply does not complement the proportions of your face, rhinoplasty can be a valuable solution. Nose surgery is also often used to correct the constricted breathing that comes with a deviated septum. Whether your nose problems are cosmetic or medical, Dr. Lefkovits can help.
However, it is important that you meet a few basic qualifications in order to be a good candidate for rhinoplasty. Some of these requirements include:
- Nose has stopped growing – This usually happens at around age 15 for girls, and later for boys.
- In strong metabolic health – Rhinoplasty is an invasive surgery that requires you to be in good health and free of major medical problems in order to proceed.
- Realistic expectations – After examining your nose, Dr. Lefkovits will help you understand what rhinoplasty can accomplish in your unique case.
Rhinoplasty can transform the overall appearance of your face, but it may not be right for everyone. The best way to find out if you are a good rhinoplasty candidate is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Lefkovits.
