Rhinoplasty is a procedure that is designed to re-shape the nose and improve its appearance. There are many different versions of the procedure, and the operation performed will depend greatly on the original shape of the nose, which can take all sorts of forms. There can be slight nose variations within one cultural group as well as enormous variations across different cultural groups in terms of shape, size, and configuration. Patients who are interested in rhinoplasty can contact the Sydney plastic surgery practice of Dr. Darrell Perkins for an initial consultation.

Providing Harmony and Improving Function
An important concept with rhinoplasty is that no one has a beautiful nose. However, a nose that is prominent draws the eye of an observer and detracts from otherwise attractive features of the face. The concept of rhinoplasty, also known as a “nose job”, is to blend the proportions of the nose back in to suit the patient’s face. This means that patients of different ethnic origins and sexes will require different rhinoplasty techniques to give them the nose that is most appropriate for their facial features and ethnic origins. Thus, all patients must be individually assessed during an initial consultation so that their planned operation gives them the most ideal results.
Another important factor that needs to be considered during the rhinoplasty consultation at our Sydney practice is the actual function of the nose. Very commonly, procedures such as septoplasty and turbinate reduction are combined with rhinoplasty to improve symmetry as well as functional breathing. Under many circumstances, patients who have had previous trauma to the nose such as a fracture and will require septoplasty or cartilage grafting will receive Medicare items and thus may be able to claim back a proportion of their surgical fees. The cost of rhinoplasty can be discussed during the initial consultation at our practice.
