How Can A Rhinoplasty Reduce The Size Of My Nose?

May 01, 2019 | 3 minute read


Just like every plastic surgery procedure, a rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job, is different for every man and woman. Because all noses are different, Dr. Yarish is careful to develop a personalized treatment plan for each of his patients. One of the most common reasons patients visit Town and Country Plastic Surgeons for a rhinoplasty is for cosmetic reasons. Namely, they are unhappy with the size of their nose. This could be due to a hump on the top of the nose, or it could refer to the width or projection of the nose. Because a rhinoplasty is such as personalized procedure, how the size of your nose is reduced will depend on your specific wants, needs, and the desire of your final look.

The Rhinoplasty Procedure

Rhinoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure that is performed on Houston area patients who want to change the look of their nose or alleviate breathing difficulties. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia, and luckily, most incisions for a rhinoplasty are hidden inside the nose. A rhinoplasty can reduce the size of a patient’s nose in several different ways.

When patients want to reduce the size of the tip of their nose, Dr. Yarish will create incisions on the base of the nose or on the columella, the area that separates the right and left sides of the nose. When narrowing the nose tip, it is possible that Dr. Yarish will also make incisions on either side of his patient’s nose to perform the procedure.

If a Houston patient wants to have a thinner or narrower nose as a whole, Dr. Yarish will make an incision down the bridge of the nose through the cartilage. He will then use a tool to carefully break the bone and then reposition it to a narrower position. This is referred to as an infracture. On the other hand, Dr. Yarish can decrease the projection of the nose, but increase the width of the nose by performing an outfracture, in which the bones are repositioned to a wider placement after a controlled break.
