A nose that is very wide, crooked, or long is perceived by some people as aesthetically unappealing. A very dominant nose, or one with a distinctly asymmetrical shape, is especially likely to motivate a request for a corrective, or rhinoplasty, procedure. By means of rhinoplasty, such nasal characteristics can be eliminated from both a cosmetic and functional standpoint in a single surgical session. Problems such as overly large nasal turbinates or a deviated nasal septum can usually be corrected, or at least improved, in one operation. These characteristics often may result in an impairment of nasal breathing.
As a rule, the shape of the nose can be adjusted through rhinoplasty in accordance with the patient’s wishes. In a personal consultation, Dr Hundt would be happy to advise you of which alterations can be precisely realised. By means of a computer simulation you can even see immediately what the planned result of the rhinoplasty will look like.
