The nose and forehead

Many of my Houston rhinoplasty patients who seek treatment for their nasal hump are unaware of how the slant of their forehead may affect the appearance of their nose. There should be a gentle transition between the nose and the forehead in the glabellar area. If the forehead is slanted back then it may appear to blend in with the nose giving a long nose appearance. In this case, this glabellar region will need to be rasped down to create that depression between the forehead and the start of the nose. Rhinoplasty or nose job surgery should create not only a more natural looking nose but one that respects the other facial features and is proportionate to them.
