Nose, when looked at from across the face, covers one-thirds of the area between the hairline an the tip of the chin. When looked at from the side, it should be in proportion with the forehead and chin. This proportion varies depending on genetic feautres and different geographical reasons. So, it would not be right to agree on a fixed proportion. A nose reduction can only be done according to anatomical features of a person.
A nose being bigger than normal can cause psychological problems to someone, as it damages the aesthetic apperance.
Patients who think their noses are big can discuss with their doctors and agree on a decision.
When nose reduction operation is being carried out, the structure of the bones and cartilages in a nose is tackled. The skin covering the membrane of the bones and cartilages adapts itself to the minimised shape of the nose. The most crucial element of a nose job operation to pay attention to is not to damage the functioning of the nose. Therefore, in a technical sense, a nose job operation require immense knowledge and experience.
Nose reductions are done with general anesthesia and take 2 hours on average. It would be normal to see swellings under the eyes due to the 3-dimensional minimisation of the nose and the operations carried out. These swellings will gradually disappear within a week’s time.
