It’s All About the Nose for Younger Patients

August 12th, 2015

Young men and women are taking advantage of the opportunity to feel better about their looks, with the shape of their nose being an important part of that. For cosmetic surgery patients under age 35, rhinoplasty (nose reshaping surgery) was the most popular procedure they chose last year.

As one plastic surgeon said, “Even a minor correction to the nose can make a huge improvement in facial harmony.”

Rhinoplasty can fix: nose size in relation to facial balance; nose width at the bridge or in the size and position of the nostrils; nose profile with visible humps or depressions on the bridge; nasal tip that is enlarged or bulbous, drooping, upturned or hooked; nostrils that are large, wide, or upturned; and nasal asymmetry.

Beyond just altering the proportions of your nose, rhinoplasty can also correct impaired breathing caused by structural defects in the nose, such as a deviated septum. Your surgeon will adjust the nasal structure to produce better alignment.

Patients often request their new nose resemble that of a favorite celebrity. The most popular noses? For men, it’s George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp. And, for women, Nicole Kidman, Kate Middleton and Halle Berry.

For rhinoplasty in Madison, Wisconsin, you can trust the experience of board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Clifford King.

Olympic Gold Medal Winner Thrilled With Her New Nose After Rhinoplasty

March 27th, 2015

A year after her second rhinoplasty (a.k.a. “nose job”) surgery, Olympic gold medal winner Stephanie Rice is still talking about how dramatically the procedure has improved her life.
“Seeing the better version of my nose made me realize how much it had been affecting me,” Rice says.

The swimmer, now 26, had broken her nose in a pool accident about 10 years earlier. The injury flattened the bridge of her nose, causing sinus issues — and a drop in her self-confidence. “My family and friends would say it was fine, but random people would comment,” she shared.
Rice was sure she wanted to have it fixed, but had to wait until she could coordinate her recovery time with her training schedule: “It was always something I knew I would do. It was not a question of if, but of when.”

Prior to breaking her nose, Rice says, she never had an issue with the way it looked. Her first rhinoplasty helped some of her medical issues, but a second procedure was needed to repair ongoing sinusitis problems, reduced airflow and a deviated septum. That treatment was also cosmetic. “I love the way my nose looks now, and I can finally breathe,” she says.

Despite the advice of her family and friends to keep the surgery a secret, Rice says she’s very happy she shared the news with her fans, who’ve overwhelmed her with their support.

“I’m so glad I didn’t keep it hush hush and rather owned my decision, one because there is no better feeling than owning your decisions and feeling empowered, and two because speaking out about it has allowed me to guide others who are in the same position I was.

“It’s not easy to open up about personal things but I would hope that my candidness helps someone else in some way,” she says.
