Rhinoplasty isn’t about sculpting the “perfect” nose or recreating someone else’s features. It’s about bringing your best nose to life and balancing your facial harmony so all your features can shine.
If you’re considering a nose job, you may feel apprehensive about the surgery compromising your face’s character or making you look like a different person. In the hands of the right rhinoplasty specialist, however, the surgery has the power to bring out the very best in your face—possibly even helping you feel more like “you” than you did before.
In this blog post, we’ve compiled a few of our favorite cases that prove nose jobs aren’t about changing your face; instead, they’re about elevating your look. Each before-and-after photo is a real rhinoplasty result created by our Washington, DC-area board-certified plastic surgeons here at Center for Plastic Surgery.
A Better Profile
This young man had a rhinoplasty done to improve the appearance of his profile. Reducing the bridge brought his features into harmony, making him look like the best version of himself. He still looks like the same man, just more refined, proportional, and confident. His results make it clear why rhinoplasty consistently ranks among the top 5 cosmetic procedures for men, according to The Aesthetic Society®.
A Second Chance
This woman had a revision rhinoplasty to correct the results of previous nose surgery. The revision corrected an asymmetrical and bulbous tip to give her a straighter and more sophisticated nose. Even after two surgeries, she looks naturally herself without any signs she has had “work done.”
A Straighter Bridge
This man chose rhinoplasty to straighten a crooked bridge and decrease the size of his nose overall. A crooked bridge is a common concern, whether due to genetics, injury, or a previous surgery. In some cases, it may even cause breathing issues, which you can learn more about in this blog post. After surgery, this man’s appearance is much more proportional, allowing his other facial features to shine. His nose still has character and looks unique, but it no longer dominates his appearance.
A Subtle Ski Slope
Sometimes all it takes is a subtle adjustment to help you finally feel like “you.” This young woman had her bridge reduced to give her profile a more refined and feminine look with a classic ski slope bridge. Removing the volume on the bridge opened her entire expression up and let her eyes take center stage.
Maintaining Aesthetic Integrity
This woman’s nose had quite a transformation between reducing a nasal hump and giving the tip a more lifted look. She still looks like herself, but now her nose doesn’t instantly draw the eye. The rest of her features are balanced, and her nose looks so natural you would never suspect she had a procedure done.
