A nose job is a surgical procedure, but it is also form of art. Every nose is different, as is every patient’s surgical objective. Even though many people think of a nose job, or rhinoplasty, in terms of aesthetic enhancement, the procedure can also address structural abnormalities in the nasal anatomy. One common example of a medical issue that can be treated with rhinoplasty is a deviated septum, which can cause sleep-disruptive snoring and other breathing problems that negatively affect a patient’s health and quality of life. The bottom line is that, in order to achieve consistently successful nose job outcomes for a variety of patients, a surgeon must help each patient make informed decisions to ensure that the patient is ultimately satisfied, and also have extensive experience in utilizing various techniques to achieve wide-ranging goals. In Tampa, Florida, that surgeon is Dr. Daniel Greenwald of Bayshore Plastic Surgery.
Board-certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery and continually recognized as one of America’s Top Surgeons by the Consumer Research Council, Dr. Greenwald is an experienced and talented plastic surgeon who emphasizes a personalized approach to patient care. During a consultation at his clinic in Tampa, FL, Dr. Greenwald can take into account a patient’s overall health, nasal structure, surgical objectives, and other unique factors to determine whether the patient’s nose job goals are feasible. For instance, besides health conditions like a deviated septum and the complications of a broken nose, some of the common cosmetic reasons that patients cite for seeking a nose job include a desire to address:
- A wide or narrow nose
- A low or high bridge
- A dorsal hump
- Wide or flaring nostrils
- Collapsed nostrils
- A bulbous tip
- A crooked, droopy, or upturned nose
As Dr. Greenwald can explain, it is important for a prospective rhinoplasty patient to understand that every form of surgery, including a nose job, involves certain risks. In addition to the standard risks of any surgical procedure, including pain, bleeding, scarring, infection, and blood clots, a nose job poses some emotional risks as well, the most prominent of which is an outcome that fails to meet unrealistic expectations. To minimize this possibility, Dr. Greenwald works closely with his patients to help them learn exactly what surgery can and cannot accomplish. One tool that is helpful for this purpose is Dr. Greenwald’s nose job before and after photo gallery, which depicts the results achieved by real patients of Bayshore Plastic Surgery.
