Procedures of The Nose
Today, many people are consulting facial plastic surgeons to correct what they consider an unattractive nose. Undesirable features of a nose include a crooked or curved appearance; a tip that droops; a wide bridge; an overly large bump; a tip that droops when you smile; or a wide or undefined tip. Some of these features are genetic traits that are inherited while others can be corrected through plastic surgery. Nose surgery provides two basic benefits to people who choose to have it. The first is to improve the appearance of the nose and the second is to improve nasal function. Not everyone who seeks nose surgery is looking to improve their appearance as some patients are simply seeking better nasal function. On the other hand, not all patients who are looking for improved appearance need to have their nasal function deformities addressed. The types of procedures performed by Dr. V of th nose include:
Cosmetic nose surgery can dramatically change your appearance. Rhinoplasty, or what is sometimes called a ‘Nose Job’, is a nose reshaping surgery to change the appearance of your nose. Rhinoplasty is derived from the Greek words “Rhinos”, which means “nose” and “Plassein”, which means, “to shape”. Rhinoplasty is one of the most difficult procedures to perform in cosmetic surgery and for that reason; it is crucial that you choose the right surgeon.

Types of Rhinoplasty Surgery
There are two main types of nasal plastic surgery: rhinoplasty and septoplasty. Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic plastic surgery procedure to change the shape and contour of your nose and septoplasty, is a reconstructive procedure designed to improve nasal function from the inside. During your consultation with Dr. V, depending on what you want she can increase or decrease the size of your nose, change the slope of your nose, straighten a crooked nose, alter the appearance of your nostrils, or correct any shape irregularities such as bumps or humps.
At The Virginia Institute of Surgical Arts, Dr. V thoroughly considers all aspects of nasal surgery and your personal consultation is the first step. Be prepared to discuss any concerns you may have and during that meeting, she will outline all possible risks and complications involved. Dr. V will examine the structure of your nose, the quality of your skin, and the relationship of your nose in perspective to your other facial features.

Dr. V also knows that from the standpoint of appearance, the finished product must display ideal nose for your face while at the same time it is imperative that all of your bones, cartilage, and skin remain presentable and that your nerves, blood vessels, muscles, and mucous membranes continue to work effectively.
