FEMALE RHINOPLASTY (NASAL RESHAPING SURGERY)
Female rhinoplasty (nasal reshaping surgery) is performed as a means of surgically enhancing the proportions, symmetry and balance of a woman’s nose, thereby improving her facial profile and the overall aesthetic appeal of her face. While many female patients seek out nasal reshaping surgery for cosmetic reasons, female rhinoplasty can also be performed to treat and correct health issues resulting from improper nasal functioning (i.e. nasal cavity structural defects), which can interfere with proper sinus performance and may potentially impair one’s breathing.
Female rhinoplasty (nasal reshaping) surgery is a complex procedure that necessitates close and careful attention to the uniquely female facial structures in order to create optimal facial symmetry and proportional balance. At Muse Plastic Surgery, located in Atlanta, Georgia, Dr. Wright A. Jones and Dr. Sabine Lovell have a special interest in performing rhinoplasty procedures, and are able to offer their female patients dramatic rhinoplasty results, while maintaining a proportional balance between the nose and the rest of the face. Our plastic surgeons employ meticulously nuanced surgical techniques to address and correct any aesthetic or cosmetic concerns expressed by their female patients, without compromising the uniquely feminine features of their facial appearance.
Dr. Jones and Dr. Lovell understand that the creation of a naturally beautiful female nose involves much more than simply minimizing a bump or resolving nasal asymmetry, and they customize every female rhinoplasty surgery to address the specific concerns of each patient. Dr. Jones uses his extensive facial surgery expertise to enhance and perfect the shape of the nose, while ensuring that the results blend seamlessly with the rest of the female facial features.

FEMALE RHINOPLASTY BENEFITS
The shape, size, and position of the nose can either detract from, or enhance the delicate symmetry of a woman’s face. Female nasal reshaping surgery works to bring the shape of the nose into alignment with the rest of the face, and can be employed to provide a number of cosmetic and health-related benefits, including:
- Repositioning of a nose that is misaligned or off-center
- Restoration of symmetrical balance to the nose after trauma or injury
- Minimization of an overly large or wide nose
- Repair of damaged sinus cavities and/or a deviated septum [/col]
- Reshaping of a nasal tip that is drooping, bulbous, or upturned
- Reduction in the size of wide, flared or upturned nostrils
- Correction of any bumps or depressions on the bridge of the nose
FEMALE RHINOPLASTY PROCEDURAL DETAILS
Every female rhinoplasty procedure Dr. Jones and Dr. Lovell perform is specifically designed to address the unique aesthetic and/or health-related concerns of their patients, and the exact details of each procedure will vary accordingly. However, female nasal reshaping surgery is generally performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia or twilight (IV) sedation, and involves either an open or closed incision technique:
- Open Rhinoplasty: during this procedure, which is ideally suited for patients who require more comprehensive nasal reshaping, Dr. Jones will make a small incision across the columella (the external end of the nasal septum)
- Closed Rhinoplasty: for this technique, which is better suited for patients needing only minor nasal modifications, Dr. Jones will conceal the incisions within the nose
For both open and closed procedures, Dr. Jones or Dr. Lovell will construct a more proportionally balanced and aesthetically pleasing nose by utilizing pieces of cartilage from the septum (the partition dividing the left and right airways of the nose) to fortify and augment the pre-existing nasal structures.
Following your female rhinoplasty procedure, you can expect to experience some degree of post-operative bruising and swelling around your eyes and cheeks, which should dissipate within 7-21 days. Dr. Jones or Dr. Lovell will place temporary nasal splints and external casts to support the nose and facilitate proper healing, and he will provide you with instructions as to the steps you can take to ensure a safe and successful recovery period.
