The latest plastic surgery figures have been released by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) and, according to the survey of its members, more than 2,700 facial plastic and reconstructive surgeons throughout the world, the number one trend in facial surgery is naturally-looking rhinoplasty results (with 74%).

Maxillo-facial surgeon Mr Afshin Yousefpour focuses entirely on facial surgery, with a particular interest in rhinoplasty. The aim of rhinoplasty surgery is that your new nose should always look like the one you should have been born with.

How do you ensure a natural-looking nose?

Rather than focusing on the nose in terms of a classic cute, button nose or the nasal shape of your favourite celebrity, it is important to look at the face and aim to achieve harmony between the nose and the rest of the facial features.

A nose may appear too long, too short, too wide or too pronounced, but that is only in relation to the rest of their facial features, whereas on another person’s face it will appear perfect. Rhinoplasty surgery, therefore, demands both surgical expertise as well as an artistic eye that can assess the facial features and produce a new nasal shape that suits.

Often, only a subtle enhancement is required to produce a more pleasing harmony, whether that’s shaving down a pronounced hump or slightly reducing the width of the nostrils.

How do I choose the best rhinoplasty surgeon for me?

There are a number of points you should evaluate when choosing a surgeon to perform a rhinoplasty surgery:

  • Do they have the relevant training? Plastic surgeons, maxillo-facial surgeons and ENT surgeons all perform rhinoplasty surgery as part of their training
  • Do they have the necessary experience? How many rhinoplasty procedures do they perform in a year? A plastic surgeon can perform cosmetic surgery procedures for all areas of the face and body so a surgeon that focuses on facial surgery may be more appropriate
  • Can they produce the rhinoplasty results you want? Check their rhinoplasty before and afters carefully and discuss with your rhinoplasty surgeon which patients have a similar nasal shape and facial features and what can be achieved

For a comprehensive rhinoplasty assessment, book a consultation with Mr Afshin Yousefpour at either his Sheffield or Brussels cosmetic surgery clinics by calling 0114 266 1133.
