Some Thousand Oaks patients come in with photos of their “perfect” noses. The fact is that rhinoplasty cannot completely change the structure of your nose. However, after almost thirty years as a plastic surgeon, Dr. Costanzo has the expert eye to help you balance your facial features with a nose that comes as close to your ideal as possible.
What Can a Nose Job Change?
While it is not possible to give you the exact nose that you want, there are many improvements that we can make. Most women come in for nose surgery to feminize their nose by creating softer features such as:
- A less long nose.
- A tip that is less wide.
- A removal of a hump to straighten the bridge.
- A narrower tip.
- Slightly upward tilt.
Both men and women can benefit from nose surgery, but there are different standards of beauty and aesthetics to follow. Men tend to have wider, more angular features that do not need softening.
What Should I Look for in a Nose Surgeon?
There are several plastic surgeons offering nose jobs in the Thousand Oaks area. But many give you unrealistic expectations about what they can do for you. A good nose job surgeon will:
- Give you honest advice on what he can change.
- Provide you with information, not unnecessary pressure to go through with the procedure.
- Listen to your needs and answer all questions truthfully.
- Have an excellent safety record and years of training so you know you’re in good hands.
Dr. Costanzo is a board-certified plastic surgeon with nearly three decades of experience and a perfect safety record. He has performed thousands of operations and will give you an honest assessment of what can be done to make the features of your nose more appealing.
When Should I Get a Nose Job?
The best results for a rhinoplasty are when the patient comes in during their mid teens to early 40s. Patients who have better skin texture with little sun damage, make it easier to produce natural results. It is possible to get a nose job if you are over 50, the sooner you make the decision the better.
