If you are unhappy with the appearance of your nose, you may have considered rhinoplasty, a type of nose reshaping surgery that can change the size, shape, and structure of the nose. Rhinoplasty can improve the balance and harmony of your facial features, as well as correct some breathing problems caused by a deviated septum or other nasal obstruction.
But what if you also want to change the appearance of your upper lip? Some people may feel that their upper lip is too long, thin, or flat, and that it does not match their desired nose shape. In that case, you may want to consider phitral reduction surgery, a procedure that shortens and lifts the upper lip by removing a small strip of skin from under the nose.
Phitral reduction surgery can be performed alone or together with rhinoplasty. When done together, these procedures can enhance the overall aesthetic outcome and create a more natural and harmonious look. Phitral reduction surgery can also reduce the distance between the nose and the upper lip, which can make the nose appear smaller and more refined.
The benefits of combining rhinoplasty and phitral reduction surgery include:
If you are interested in rhinoplasty and phitral reduction surgery together, you should consult with a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon who can assess your facial anatomy, discuss your goals and expectations, and recommend the best surgical plan for you. You should also be aware of the risks and limitations of these procedures, such as swelling, bruising, scarring, numbness, asymmetry, or dissatisfaction with the results.
Rhinoplasty and phitral reduction surgery together can be a great option for people who want to improve their nasal and lip appearance at the same time. These procedures can boost your self-confidence and enhance your natural beauty.
