My Nose is Too Big. How Small Can It Get with Rhinoplasty Surgery?

Featured Image

Are you dreaming of having a button nose? If your nose is too big, then you might wonder how small you can go with rhinoplasty surgery. Everyone’s face is different. With rhinoplasty, you’ll want to ensure that your new nose appears proportional to your facial features. Basically, you don’t want to go too big or too small. You’ll want your new nose to look natural and flattering to your face.

Dr. Eugene Alford is a double-board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon at Alford Facial Plastic Surgery in Houston, TX. He has more than 30 years of experience and is considered one of only three doctors in the entire Houston area to have this level of facial plastic surgery experience.

Why get rhinoplasty surgery?

Your nose is one of your key features. Next to your smile, it is one of the first things people notice about you, so you’ll want to ensure that it is in proportion to your face. Rhinoplasty surgery involves nose reshaping and is often referred to as a “nose job.” It’s a common surgery provided by Dr. Alford at Alford Facial Plastic Surgery in Houston, TX.

Rhinoplasty often involves a reduction in the size of the nose, a narrowing of the nostrils, a change in the angle of the nose, or a tip alternation. The surgical procedure is either done to improve your appearance or to help treat nasal function deformities that can cause headaches, sinus issues, or improper nasal function.

Most patients who seek rhinoplasty surgery are younger, but patients in their 50s, 60s, or older can also receive help from the procedure. The surgical procedure not only will improve a person’s appearance by creating balance but can also help the nose function properly. Rhinoplasty is ideal for patients of all ages.

Benefits of rhinoplasty include:

  • Smaller nose size

  • Nose tip reduction

  • Nostril reshaping

  • Deviated septum repair

  • Improved facial symmetry

  • Smoothing for the nose bridge

  • Sleep apnea treatment

  • Easing of snoring

  • Improved self-image

Who are the ideal candidates for rhinoplasty surgery?

Women tend to get rhinoplasty surgery (between the ages of 20 – 35) more often than men, but that does not mean that men are not ideal candidates. Almost anyone can benefit from cosmetic nose surgery if they want to feel better about their appearance, or if they have a health condition or congenital defect that can be improved by the surgical procedure.

Rhinoplasty surgery should only be performed on someone whose face has stopped growing and matured. If a teen is interested in rhinoplasty surgery, then an evaluation will help decide if they have stopped growing.
