Am I a Good Candidate for Rhinoplasty?

noseRhinoplasty is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures performed each year. The purpose of the surgery is to improve the appearance and/or function of your nose, while maintaining a natural look that is harmonious with the rest of your facial features. Men and women with varying physical needs and aesthetic goals can benefit from rhinoplasty. It is a highly customizable procedure that Dr. John Hilinski is highly skilled and experienced in performing.

If you are unhappy with the nose you were born with or changes that have occurred with age, you may be a good candidate for rhinoplasty. Specific problems that can be addressed with nose reshaping surgery include:

  • Increase or decrease the size of your nose
  • Alter the angle or shape of your nasal tip
  • Correct a crooked or abnormally high bridge
  • Improve a structural problem causing difficulty breathing

In addition to these abnormalities, it is vital that you have realistic expectations regarding the outcome of your surgery. Overall, you should strive for improvement, not perfection. When you come in for your consultation with Dr. Hilinski, he will help you understand if you are a good candidate for rhinoplasty, as well as what you can expect from the procedure.
