Many of my Houston rhinoplasty patients will ask if rhinoplasty will change their smile. While rhinoplasty will change the shape of your nose, it should not change your smile. However, initially, due to swelling and healing, the upper lip will feel stiff and not move up as much during the first several weeks of healing. This will resolve and return to normal. I usually tell patients that rhinoplasty will improve your smile as now the nose is no longer distracting to the observer and they can focus on your eyes, lips, and hair.
