Rhinoplasty Objectives: Shift Focus and Improve Balance
Video transcript: My name is Dr. Thomas Buonassisi. I’m a facial plastic surgeon and I specialize in cosmetic rhinoplasty. I’ve been performing the surgery for over 10 years. Rhinoplasty is a procedure that is used to change the shape of the nose. One of the most common concerns my patients express is that their nose is a very dominant feature and is the first thing people see when they look at them.
With rhinoplasty, what we’re really trying to do is to tone down that feature so it isn’t the most prominent and most obvious feature on a person’s face. We want to do it in a way that is keeping with their ethnic background and their other facial features so that it looks balanced and natural. The net effect is that we want it to be part of the face, but not the main focus.
