Young Woman with a Sculpted Nose Framing Her Face in her Hands

If you’re wondering if rhinoplasty is going to deliver drastic changes to your facial appearance, you’re not alone. In fact, it’s a common question that Dallas facial plastic surgeon Dr. Bassichis of Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center is asked during nose job consultations.

The answer to this question is, “yes, no, or possibly”. The reason it’s difficult to give a definitive answer is that every nose job is different, meaning your surgical results will vary depending on whether you are having cosmetic rhinoplasty to change the appearance of your nose (and if so, what degree of changes you are hoping to get), or if you’re getting a functional nose job to improve your breathing.

The Various Ways Cosmetic Rhinoplasty Can Alter the Appearance of Your Face

Dr. Bassichis finds that many Dallas residents don’t like the appearance of their nose, and feel like it doesn’t match their other facial features. Nose jobs can address several cosmetic concerns, including:

  • A protruding nasal hump
  • A pointy nose
  • A nose that looks too large for the patient’s face
  • A nose that looks too small for the patient’s face
  • A nose with a downward turned nasal tip
  • A wide nose
  • Nostrils that the patient finds are too big or too small

As you can see from the above list, there are so many different ways a nose job can alter your appearance, whether or not you’ll see results that you may find “drastic” all depends on your current appearance, and your surgical plan for the unwanted nasal appearance you’d like changed.

Nose Appearances Typically Stay Intact for Functional Rhinoplasty Patients

Some Dallas residents have a nose that they feel is as cute as a button. However, they’re plagued with breathing problems, and no medications for allergies or congestion have helped.

In some cases, functional rhinoplasty may be an option to help improve breathing in a Dallas patient. Because this procedure typically involves altering the internal shelves in your nose, most Dallas functional nose job patients don’t see drastic changes to their appearance after surgery.

If You’re Concerned Your Surgery Will Deliver Results that You Feel Will Be Too Drastic, Let Dr. Bassichis Know

When it comes to nose jobs and desired outcomes, the most important thing is to have open communication with Dr. Bassichis. He won’t know how aggressively to shave down a nasal hump, for example, if you don’t clearly communicate what you’d like your post-op nose to look like. Oftentimes, the best way to do this is to show him pictures of noses you like, so he has a visual as to what look you want to achieve.

Schedule a Consultation at Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center

If you’re considering a nose job, the best thing you can do is to speak with an experienced and talented facial plastic surgeon like Dr. Bassichis. During an initial consultation, he can evaluate your nose, listen to your concerns and desired outcomes, and together, he can help prepare a surgical treatment plan that will make you happy – whether that includes drastic or subtle changes to your facial appearance.

If you’re showing signs of aging on your face, but you’re on the fence about getting a facelift, we’re here to provide you with some information that may help you make your decision. Here are 5 benefits of having the procedure performed by Dallas facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Bassichis of Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center.

  1. Look Up to 10 Years Younger (With Results That Look Natural, Not Windblown)

One of the most common questions that Dallas plastic surgeon Dr. Bassichis is asked during facelift consultations is how much younger the surgery can make a patient appear. While individual results will always vary, the skills and techniques that Dr. Bassichis uses can make you appear as much as 10 years younger than you actually are!*

Dr. Bassichis works diligently to make sure you have results that look natural. He knows that no Dallas plastic surgery patient wants obvious signs that tell the world they’ve had work done. He also knows you want to avoid the “windblown” look. With his advanced technical skills and artistic eye, Dr. Bassichis is able to provide patients with results that look natural and not surgical.*

  1. Fill in Sunken Cheeks

One of the most common complaints among patients desiring a facial plastic surgery is that their cheeks have hollowed out and sunken in. Through the combined use of facial fillers and specialized surgical techniques, Dr. Bassichis can add volume to the cheeks and tighten the surrounding skin to help them have a more youthful appearance.

  1. Eliminate Wrinkles on Your Mid to Lower Face

Nobody likes wrinkles. But with aging, they’re pretty much unavoidable. However, surgery can eliminate the wrinkling you’ve accumulated over the years on your mid to lower face. If wrinkles reappear in between your need for an additional surgery approximately 10 years after your first one, solutions like routine BOTOX®, laser treatments and/or chemical peels are a great maintenance option.

  1. Get Rid of Jowls That Hang Off of Your Jawline

Sometimes, one of the biggest complaints Dr. Bassichis hears from his Dallas patients is that they have jowls hanging below their jawline. Many of these patients don’t realize that a facelift can address this issue, too.

By making a small incision underneath your chin, Dr. Bassichis has the access he needs to remove these jowls from your face, so you have less facial drooping.

  1. Feel More Confident with a More Youthful Look That Reflects How You Really Feel Inside

Probably the best benefit of getting a facelift is that it helps you look as young as you feel inside. Many of Dr. Bassichis’ patients express that their outer appearance just doesn’t reflect how active and young they truly are – both mentally, physically, and spiritually. Facial plastic surgery lets the true you shine through so that you look as great as you feel on the inside!
