Nose Contouring & Rhinoplasty Specialist
When we try to identify the facial features that make us look the way we do, it's the nose that is often seen as our most prominent characteristic. This is because the nose is situated in the centre of the face and draws just as much attention as other features, such as the mouth and eyes. If the nose is misshapen or overly prominent, it takes an enormous toll on your appearance because it is in the middle of your face. If you're bothered by the way your nose looks, it's likely to have a negative effect on your how you feel about yourself. For this reason, our patients who undergo rhinoplasty, or surgical nose contouring, find the results to be extremely rewarding.
Call Briarwood Cosmetic Surgical Centre at 905-849-4282 to book your medical consultation with Dr. Stephen Brown. In addition to training budding plastic surgeons in their residency programme at the Department of Medicine at McMaster University in Hamilton, Dr. Brown serves as an Expert Witness for the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO).
Regardless of the features of the nose you wish to have addressed, Dr. Brown always takes care to preserve its primary characteristics. All changes are made in accordance with the balance and character of your face. This is incredibly important in any cosmetic rhinoplasty surgery, since a "blanket" approach to the surgery can lead to results that don't suit your face and, ultimately, look unnatural. Dr. Brown performs a very thorough examination during your consultation in order to best understand how to plan your treatment. He identifies your most attractive features and, by leveraging more than 25 years experience in performing rhinoplasty, works to enhance your appearance by bringing your nose into proper balance with the rest of your face. If you experience trouble breathing, Dr. Brown will also ask questions regarding your allergies, previous injuries, family history, and response to seasonal or emotional changes during the consultation process for a more effective solution.
You may be an ideal candidate for rhinoplasty if your problems are related to one or more key features of the nose. Complaints regarding aesthetic issues like wide or drooping nostrils, nasal bumps, and large nose tips can be corrected through nose reshaping surgery. The procedure not only fixes cosmetic problems, but also internal ones related to troublesome breathing as well. Dr. Brown's approach involves treating the interior and exterior of the nose, making treatment an ideal solution to a wide range of problems.
Customizing Your Nose Reshaping Procedure
Dr. Brown understands just how delicate the nose reshaping process is. As a result, your initial consultation will involve a thorough discussion of how you'd like your nose to look like. Some patients find that bringing pictures of noses they like also helps illustrate their expectations. Dr. Brown strives to identify exactly what you want in advance, so that your surgery reshapes your nose the way you desire.
Since your nose is one of the facial features most responsible for determining what you look like, he is extremely careful to preserve its best features while subtly correcting problem areas. The rhinoplasty procedure typically requires Dr. Brown to make small changes to the nose. These usually include widening and strengthening the nasal bones, correcting the extent to which the bridge projects, defining the tip of the nose, and altering its length (or nasolabial angle). He may also reduce the general size of the nose, remove unsightly nasal humps, or narrow the nostrils as part of the surgery.
Every precaution is taken before, during, and after the rhinoplasty procedure in order to ensure an exceptional outcome for you. A careful approach, combined with Dr. Brown's experience and surgical skill, makes it possible for you to enjoy an improved, natural-looking nose that contributes to the overall balance of all of your facial features.
