Monmouth County Plastic Surgeon Highlights the Various Benefits of Rhinoplasty
Christopher P. Godek, MD, FACS discusses numerous enhancements that can be made to the nose through rhinoplasty.
Toms River, NJ — As the center point of reference for other facial features, the nose can significantly influence the overall aesthetics of a person’s face, states Dr. Christopher P. Godek, a board certified plastic surgeon in New Jersey. Some of the most common concerns individuals have in regard to their nose include a crooked bridge alignment, a hump on the nasal bridge, a disproportionately large/small tip, wide/narrow nostrils, and a deviated septum, among others. For men and women troubled by cosmetic and/or functional issues of the nose, Dr. Godek says rhinoplasty may be an excellent surgical option.
Sometimes referred to as nasal surgery or a “nose job,” rhinoplasty can be performed to address one or more parts of the nose, including the nasal bridge, nostrils, septum, and nasal tip. Depending on the patient’s unique needs and desires, Dr. Godek notes that the procedure can often help:
- Increase or decrease the overall size of the nose
- Straighten the nasal bridge
- Reduce the hump on the nasal bridge
- Thin or widen the nasal bridge
- Increase or decrease the size of the nasal tip
- Elevate or lower the tip of the nose
- Reshape the nostrils
In addition to its aesthetic benefits, Dr. Godek explains that rhinoplasty can also help patients improve their nasal breathing, as the procedure can often be performed to correct a deviated septum that may be blocking proper airflow through the nose. Furthermore, he says the vast majority of individuals who undergo rhinoplasty report an improvement in self-confidence and esteem thanks to a more harmonious balance among their facial features.
Ultimately, although it has many advantages for qualified candidates, rhinoplasty is widely considered one of the most difficult cosmetic surgeries available, which is why Dr. Godek stresses the importance of seeking a board certified plastic surgeon who is highly qualified and experienced in performing the operation. “When considering this procedure, my advice is to study several before-and-after photos of patients who have received rhinoplasty from your prospective plastic surgeon in order to ensure he or she is capable of achieving the quality of results you desire.”
