The Keys to a Natural-Looking Nose Job

Your nose is at the center of your face, a defining feature of your profile. While many people don’t give their noses a second thought, if you’re bothered by the shape or size of your nose, you know that it can significantly affect your confidence and self-image.

Rhinoplasty, often called a nose job, is a cosmetic surgery aimed at reshaping the nose for cosmetic and functional reasons. It’s the most popular plastic surgery procedure, with an estimated 220,000 procedures performed annually in the United States.

Plastic surgery can bring to mind plenty of celebrities with lips that are too large, noses that are too pointed, or breasts that are overdone. But the truth is that most plastic surgery results are subtle and natural.

Nose jobs are no different. If you want to change the look of your nose but still maintain your natural look, come to Richard Peck Plastic Surgery in West Orange, New Jersey. Here, we offer our tips for getting a natural-looking nose job.

Find a surgeon you trust

The first step in getting a nose job that looks natural is finding a trusted cosmetic surgeon you feel comfortable with. Don’t be afraid to schedule consultations with different doctors to learn about your options. You should feel comfortable asking your plastic surgeon questions about rhinoplasty to find out if treatment is right for you.

At Richard Peck Plastic Surgery, Dr. Peck is an expert in giving patients beautiful, natural nose jobs. He has extensive experience in rhinoplasty, and he has trained under his father, Dr. George Peck, a world-renowned plastic surgeon.

In your consultation, Dr. Peck evaluates your nose and facial features. He talks with you about your medical history and your goals for the procedure. Many patients opt for nose jobs because they’re unhappy with the shape or size of their nose, but for some, a nose job can also improve breathing.

Get a personalized surgery plan

Your face is as unique as your personality. To get a natural-looking nose job, you need a customized treatment plan that takes your features into account. Plastic surgery can easily go wrong when patients try to emulate a celebrity or other figure rather than having the surgery designed to complement your own facial traits.

Before your rhinoplasty, Dr. Peck develops a customized treatment plan that can address a variety of issues, including:

He maps out adjustments to your skin, cartilage, and bone to give you a natural-looking nose that harmonizes with the rest of your features. Instead of copying someone else’s nose, he gives you a nose that enhances the rest of your face.

Dr. Peck specializes in endonasal rhinoplasties. During rhinoplasty surgery, he makes all of the necessary incisions inside your nostrils so no scars are visible following your nose job.

Set the right expectations

Choosing cosmetic surgery is a big decision. You should do it for yourself and not to please anyone else or in an attempt to achieve an ideal look. To improve your results, it’s important to manage your expectations.

Dr. Peck can help you understand what to expect from surgery, as well as the steps to take during recovery to promote proper healing. He strives to give you rhinoplasty results that achieve proportional and aesthetic harmony with the rest of your face.

Following your surgery, be sure to give your nose time to heal before assessing the success of your procedure. While cosmetic changes can be apparent immediately, swelling can take a few weeks to several months to completely disappear.
