The desire to change one, focused aspect of the face that bothers a person, or in the case of a Toronto nose job surgery, the desire to change just one feature of the nose, is really common. Many people have noticed one thing about their nose that they feel detracts from their appearance and this problem may have caused them concern all their life.

The short answer to the question, “Can I have just the bump removed without altering the tip?” is technically, yes, although the long answer is a bit more complex than that.

Is It Possible To Have The Bump Removed On Your Nose Without Altering The Tip

Each Person’s Anatomy Is Unique

You’ve likely seen celebrities or even friends of yours with noses you consider ideal, and you may ask your facial cosmetic surgeon to give you, “that nose” however the reality is that each and every nose has subtle qualities both internally and external that make each surgical plan a custom job. Patients are often aware of the more obvious features of their nose, but their eye doesn’t pick up on the subtle features which all work together to create your look. Your expert surgeon can see not just the feature you don’t like, but overall facial harmony and proportions with meticulous detail.

Your Goal Look Might Require A Different Approach Than You Think

The internal structure of the nose, it’s tissues and structures can be quite complex. A Nose surgery in Toronto typically involves careful measurements at the consultation stage and a physical assessment. In order to remove a bump, some corresponding surgical work may be required. Your surgeon will explain in detail what it will take to help you see the changes you want.

The Features You Like Now, May Look Different Later

One of the reasons that a facial surgeon will often alter more than one aspect of the nose during a rhinoplasty procedure is that only changing one can leave other features unbalanced. A tip that appeared petite and refined before, may suddenly look too large or too projecting after the bridge is narrowed and refined. It is hard for the average person to visualize this but an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon will be able to predict and show you how you are able to avoid making other features look out of place. This may mean that your tip can remain untouched, or it may mean a slight alteration in order to keep it appearing just how you see it now.

Toronto Rhinoplasty surgery is such a specialized field, that even when patients only seek to “narrow the tip”, or “shave the bump” they can find themselves disappointed in results from less experienced surgeons. A top nose job surgeon will want your whole face to look great and for your nose to suit you and compliment your features- making you look your best.

Choosing a board-certified head and neck surgeon whose practice specializes in Rhinoplasty and Facial Cosmetic and Reconstructive facial work means that natural, subtle-looking changes are made with meticulous care and facial harmony in mind. Your one-on-one consultation is the first step toward the nose you’ve been dreaming of.
