4 Minute Read:
In 2020, rhinoplasty (cosmetic nose surgery) was the most performed cosmetic surgical procedure, and this is for good reasons.
All you need to do is look at the stunning and transformative results that cosmetic nose surgery can offer men and women of all ages, and you’ll understand why so many people (including some of our favorite celebrities) have undergone this procedure.
Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that can correct cosmetic issues with the nose, including a crooked nose (either from birth or injury), a nose that is too big or small, a nose with a nasal hump, or a nose with an upturned or drooping nasal tip.
However, many patients struggle with cosmetic concerns on the face that are not limited to the nose.
Whether these patients want to correct oversized ears or smooth wrinkles and fine lines on their facial skin, the good news is that rhinoplasty can be easily combined with other plastic surgery procedures to help you achieve the facial aesthetic you desire.
Why Should I Consider Combining Procedures?
As with any plastic surgery, undergoing rhinoplasty as a standalone procedure can offer dramatic improvement and change to your facial composition and appearance; however, combining your rhinoplasty procedure with other cosmetic surgeries can allow you an even more complete aesthetic transformation.
In truth, the benefits of combining procedures are endless. Not only can you correct those facial issues that have been frustrating you (and maybe causing you to feel self-conscious or embarrassed), but combining procedures can cut down on the overall price and recovery time of those procedures.
This is because you are only paying once for some of the fees (such as anesthesia, the facility fee, and the surgeons fee), and instead of recovering from these different procedures at separate times, you are able to recover from them simultaneously.
What Are the Best Procedures to Combine With Rhinoplasty?
Virtually all facial cosmetic procedures can be combined with a rhinoplasty to help you achieve a complete transformation to your face. However, some of the most common (and transformative) procedures to help you achieve a more youthful and stunning appearance include:
Facelift surgery is one of the most trusted and popular procedures available.
Whether you suffer from skin imperfections (such as wrinkles or sagging skin) due to age, lifestyle, or life choices, a facelift can allow you to achieve a rejuvenated appearance by tightening the underlying muscles and tissue in the face as well as removing excess and sagging skin. Lastly the remaining skin will be redraped so that you can feel proud and confident with a smoother and more contoured face.
Otoplasty (corrective ear surgery) can help men and women of all ages (from children to adults) achieve a more balanced appearance with their ears.
Many people suffer from large ears and/or ears that stick out from the sides of their face. These cosmetic issues can cause these people to feel embarrassed and self-conscious (especially if they were or still are teased by others about their ears).
With this procedure, the size and shape of the ears can be altered to allow you ears that are better balanced with the rest of your head.
Neck lift surgery can help you correct cosmetic issues in the neck, such as excess fat and sagging skin (often referred to as a “turkey neck”).
For this procedure, liposuction surgery may be used to remove pockets of stubborn fat from the neck. Additionally, sagging neck skin will be surgically removed to give you a more sculpted and defined appearance to your neck, which can help transform your entire facial appearance and make you feel better about the way you look.
Blepharoplasty addresses issues within the eyelids. These issues consist of sagging upper eyelids (which can cause you to look tired and/or grumpy and, in some cases, may even obstruct your vision) and puffy lower eyelids and bags under the eyes that can detract from the natural beauty of your face.
You can either undergo an upper blepharoplasty (for the upper eyelids), a lower blepharoplasty (for the lower eyelids), or a combination of both to give you a more attractive appearance to your upper face.
For this procedure, fat, tissue, and/or skin are surgically removed from the eyelid to help compliment the beauty of your eyes.
Also known as a forehead lift, a brow lift helps to correct issues on the upper portion of the face, especially in the eyebrows and forehead.
While a facelift only addresses facial blemishes on the lower two-thirds of the face, a brow lift helps to address sagging skin and other signs of aging on the upper third of the face.
For this procedure, fat and other excess tissue are removed from the eyebrows, and the forehead skin is tightened to give you a more youthful appearance.
