Augmentation Rhinoplasty: How To Improve Facial Structure

A very common and popular procedure at the Banobagi Plastic Surgery Clinic is an Augmentation Rhinoplasty.

The nose is one of the most prominent physical features on the face. It helps to shape and define every dimension on the face. Our specialists at Banobagi understand the importance of facial proportions and how they can directly affect every aspect of a patient’s life. 

Korean beauty standards are extremely particular and usually side with a natural look. This means that any work done to the face must enhance the patient’s look and bring out the natural beauty. We will work to bring more prominence and definition to the nose, this is also known in Korea as the ‘high nose’ standard. 

What Goes Into A Rhinoplasty?

Being one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures, a rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job, is available almost everywhere in the world. Of course, methods differ from doctor to doctor, however, we at Banobagi always do our best to ensure excellence. 

The nose is the center of the face, so it must complement and define every facial feature. Rhinoplasty includes many factors. Some of those factors are:

  • The width of the nose
  • The length of  the nose
  • The length and width of the nose bridge
  • Nostril size and shape
  • The path of the nasal cavity

This is only within the area of the nose, the entire face has to be factored into the equation. A patient could possibly need more than one procedure done. Perhaps as the nose is changing, the cheekbones will need reduction, or the forehead will need work.

It’s all very personal, but extremely important to get right. With multiple procedures comes multiple options. What can a patient have done on their nose? The options are extensive. 

How Many Ways Can Augmentation Rhinoplasty Be Done?

Of course, every patient is treated as an individual. We cater to the needs of individuals, not trends. With that being said, an augmentation rhinoplasty can be done in numerous ways. Like a snowflake, every procedure is particular to the patient. 

This can be done as a complimenting procedure to others that are working to enhance the face overall. Or the augmentation rhinoplasty can be the star of the show, while other procedures work to compliment it. Below are different variations of augmentation rhinoplasty. 

  • Augmentation Rhinoplasty: This procedure adds to the bridge of the nose. 
  • Nose tip plasty: slims the tip of the nose, so to achieve a more three-dimensional look.
  • Alar reduction: reduce the size of the nostrils to create a balance within facial proportions. 
  • Hump resection: straightens the nose by reducing a nose hump, also making it easier to breathe. Below is a small chart showing a before and after. Rhinoplasty
  • Deviated nose correction: more of a function correcting procedure that allows better breathing and better facial aesthetics. 
  • Columella correction: a part of the nose located in between the nostrils that are responsible for supporting the tip of the nose. Once again another procedure is done for facial balance. 
  • Nasal bone osteotomy: similar to contouring, this procedure reduces the widen bones, so to create a prominent shape. 

Keep in mind a patient would need more than one of the suggested procedures above. The objective of every procedure is to create an aesthetically pleasing nose that compliments the rest of the face.

Not to mention certain methods above are also done to improve breathing problems. Not every procedure is just for aesthetic purposes. For some focusing on the opening of the nasal passages allows patients to receive a new look, while also living a healthier life.
