Rhinoplasty (Nose Reshaping)

The Shape & Size of a Nose Can Really Affect the Appearance of the Face

Beauty is balance and harmony and how all the components of your face come together determine how you look. Some features of the face cannot be changed easily but the nose if out of proportion with the face can be remodelled to achieve a more balanced and attractive appearance.

How often have we seen a pretty face which could be prettier if the nose was more in proportion? It could be the total size of the nose that is too big or it could be only one part of the nose that is letting the face down.

Rhinoplasty is often known as surgery of millimetres as a small change can have a big effect on the overall appearance. It takes a lot of experience and an artistic sense to know how the nose should be changed so that it would best blend in with that particular face. The commonest mistake of in-experienced surgeons is to do too much. Not only does it produce an unsatisfactory appearance but the new faults can be difficult to correct.

Computer Imaging

Dr Chan will discuss your facial features with you. Often he employs computer imaging and he is able to show progressive changes of various parts of your nose and how it would blend in with you face. He has found this to be a valuable education tool and his patients now understand that rhinoplasty is surgery of millimeters and small changes can significantly affect the appearance of the nose and how the nose sits in relation with the face.

He has found that patients will more confidently have the operation knowing what the plan is. Although the results cannot be guaranteed to a fine detail due to variability in the behaviour of each patient’s tissue there is a high degree of satisfaction with his results.

Dr Chan will discuss the imperfections of your nose with you. In most cases he will have a digital photograph taken of you before the consultation so that he can discuss your likes and dislikes to help plan your rhinoplasty operation.

Dr Chan has been performing rhinoplasty surgery for over 20 years. It is one of the operations he really enjoyed doing. Rhinoplasty allows him to create a balanced nose which fits in with the face. After all what is the definition of “beauty”? Beauty is balance and harmony.
