Should I have a straight profile or a slope with rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty or nose job surgery is the second most common cosmetic surgical procedure in the United States. Many of our Houston patients who are interested in rhinoplasty have a certain goal or idea for their appearance. It is important to perform the rhinoplasty digital imaging with your surgeon so you have a good communication with him/her as to what you want.

Aesthetics are very subjective and you surgeon should respect your desires for your nose. Although the surgeon may make recommendations based on your facial architecture, ethnic background, and their own aesthetic opinion, ultimately, you should have a choice if you desire a straight profile, a gentle curve to the bridge of your nose, or a more sloped nose.
