Common Aesthetic Issues Rhinoplasty Can Address
The nose is the centre of the face and the first thing most people see when looking at each other. A nose that is deformed, too big, too small or too wide detracts from the beauty of other features and can detract from the harmony of the face. Even small alterations in the shape of the nose can significantly improve one’s appearance. The goal of rhinoplasty is to improve the nose aesthetically while creating harmony with the other facial features.

What Is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty surgery allows us to reshape, reduce, augment and modify a nose in order to make it look and function better. Toronto facial plastic surgeon Dr. Andres Gantous has dedicated his career to perfect this operation by obtaining reliable and consistent results even in the most difficult cases.
Am I a Good Candidate for Rhinoplasty?
Before the nose is altered, a young patient must reach full growth, usually around age fifteen or sixteen. Exceptions are cases in which breathing is severely impaired. Rhinoplasty is usually performed under general anesthesia, but can be done with local anesthesia and sedation. It is a day surgery meaning that the patient can go home a few hours after the operation is complete.
I’m currently one month post-op and I am so pleased with my results so far!! I had a septorhinoplastry surgery to fix my broken nose and deviated septum to improve my breathing as well as facial appearance. I feel so much more confident with myself and I am finally breathing and sleeping better 🙂 Dr. Gantous and his team were amazing and made me feel very comfortable. Shoutout to his wonderful secretary, Marianne as she always greeted me with a smile and a good laugh!
Open Rhinoplasty and Closed Rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasty can be done in two different ways:
The closed or endonasal approach is the traditional way where incisions are made in the inside of the nose and the changes of the nose carried out through these cuts. The open or external approach is where an incision is made in the skin between the nostrils and the skin is elevated off the cartilage and bone allowing direct visualization of the changes that are being made.
Dr. Gantous will take time after your assessment to discuss the pros and cons of each approach and help you decide which is best for you. Important factors that will affect the decision of which technique to use include:
- Skin type
- Ethnic background
- History of previous surgery or trauma
- History of nasal obstruction or breathing problems
Patients often choose to have a chin augmentation done at the same time as a rhinoplasty in order to balance the facial features.
