The perfect nose âcanât be chosen from a catalogueâ, surgeon explains
30 October 2014
When undergoing Cosmetic Surgery, many patients often have a celebrity in mind when transforming an aspect of themselves â but when it comes to Rhinoplasty, an expert warns about the importance of choosing a nose shape thatâs unique to the patientâs facial structure.
A recent blog titled âOpen Vs. Closed Rhinoplastyâ by Dr Kalus sees him detail the noseâs central position within the face â making it a focal point when talking to others. Due to its location, itâs imperative that any surgery complements the personâs facial features: âBecause the nose is such a prominent feature of our face, it is critical that the nose not only appear ânormalâ and natural after Rhinoplasty Surgery, but also attractive and in proper proportion within the rest of the face,â he explains.
He adds: âIt is critical for the patient to understand that the appearance of the nose cannot simply be selected from a catalogue.â So how do you achieve that natural look? Dr Kalus develops a surgical plan tailored to the patientâs face, highlighting the significance of ethnicity. Dr Kalus says: âPreserving ethnicity is crucial when planning a Rhinoplasty. Otherwise, the results can appear out of place and disproportionate, and the nose may not appear to fit the face.â
