The best candidates for a rhinoplasty are patients who feel self-conscious about their nose for a variety of aesthetic and medical reasons. For example, some patients may want to remove a bump on the nose or correct a bulbous tip. Others may feel that their nose is “too ethnic looking,” or sometimes not ethnic looking enough. Other patients wish to correct the result of injury or trauma to their nose.
Rhinoplasty can be a strictly cosmetic procedure or a reconstructive one when it is designed to correct an injury, congenital or developmental deformity of the nose. Often, both reasons warrant having a rhinoplasty.
In short, everyone has a unique reason for wanting a rhinoplasty and a vision of what they want in a nose. It is Dr. Vitolo’s job to assimilate all these factors and, using his vast experience in performing rhinoplasties, to create the “unique” nose for each person that comes to him.
All candidates for a rhinoplasty procedure should be realistic in their expectations of the results of their rhinoplasty. A rhinoplasty in itself cannot change one’s life, but for many people it can provide confidence to achieve their “Personal Best”!
