If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your nose, you can change its appearance to a degree using makeup, but it’s a short-term solution and will only mask the problem. For a permanent solution to something that may have been affecting your confidence for years, rhinoplasty is the best way to reduce its size and achieve genuine, long-term results.
It’s important to reiterate that all nose shapes are normal, and, providing they aren’t causing you trouble breathing, there should never be any pressure to change the appearance of your nose from a health perspective. With this in mind, knowing that the nose is the most prominent feature on the face and something we look at every day – there is absolutely nothing wrong if those with larger or more unique nose shapes choose to seek out a solution.
How does rhinoplasty make your nose smaller?
Cosmetic rhinoplasty commonly referred to as a ‘nose job,’ involves reshaping the nose to enhance the proportions and aesthetic appearance. Rhinoplasty is an excellent option for those seeking a permanent solution for concerns such as:
- Disproportionately large nose size
- Excessively high or low nose bridge
- Pinched or flared nostrils
- Overly large nasal tip
During the procedure, patients will be under anaesthetic while their surgeon expertly sculpts the cartilage and bone into the desired shape and size. Once the surgery is complete and the swelling eventually subsides, your ‘new nose’ should be far more refined and proportioned to the rest of your face.
Are there other options to make my nose smaller?
If you’re looking at how to make your nose smaller, there is no shortage of miracle cures available over the internet. However, most of these have no scientific backing, and if they do have any results, they are only short-lived.
For those looking to change the shape of their nose and aren’t as concerned about it being too big, dermal fillers or ‘non-surgical rhinoplasty is a great option. However, if you seek a smaller, more refined nose, then surgery is the only permanent option.
Who is eligible for rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is available to anyone concerned with the shape, appearance, or general function of their nose. It is an incredibly popular procedure among men and women of all ages, as its long-term effects can lead to a life-changing boost in confidence and, in a functional case, general well-being.
If you are preparing for rhinoplasty, ensure you allow yourself at least a week, if not two off work to give yourself ample time for recovery and healing.
