Does Your Nose Make You Look Older?

When people start to notice the first signs of aging, the nose is not typically the first area to be seen as the cause of a more aged look. However, since your nose is the focal point of the face it has the ability to throw off symmetry, appear droopy, and accentuate facial lines. So, does your nose make you look older? We’ll discuss how a rhinoplasty in Cleveland may help:

A “Droopy” Tip

Like other parts of the face, the tip of the nose can begin to droop over time either due to poor support or it’s natural structure. This concern comes up in patients of all age groups because it is often a characteristic of their anatomy, being a deficiency in cartilage or structure that supports the tip of the nose.

A Bump on the Bridge

Irregularities found on the bridge of the nose can sometimes be attributed to the natural structure or can even come from an injury. Unfortunately, injuries to the nose will often result in a bump after it heals and may only be corrected by rhinoplasty and cartilage grafts.

The Size Draws Attention to the Surrounding Lines

Since the nose is the focal point of the face, the size may draw increased attention to the lines that can form around it, such as smile lines or “parenthesis”. For some patients, simply lifting the nose and reducing the size can give a more youthful look.

If you don’t feel confident with the nose you were given or have had an injury that has caused irregularities in shape, rhinoplasty surgery, also known as a nose job, is a great option that can help you regain your confidence.
