A youthful face is often associated with the absence of forehead lines, crow’s feet, and jowls. Many are unaware of the role that facial balance and symmetry play in a person’s overall look. Although no face is perfectly proportional, certain asymmetries such as in the nose may be more obvious and consequently affect how the rest of the face looks. A drooping nasal tip can make your lips appear thinner. Thinning lips are often associated with aging. Nasal humps and bumps tend to make the cheeks appear shrunken and less defined. And a bulbous tip generally distracts attention away from the eyes and puts the spotlight instead on the lower part of the face. Ideally, the nose should cohesively blend with the rest of the facial features rather than emphasize a certain flaw. A nose should have the following characteristics to be able to present a more youthful look: Nasal tip slightly points up Nasal bridge is smooth, refined, and should not be lacking in projection Nasal base should just have the right width in proportion to your face Planning for your rhinoplasty with Dr. Cortes Rhinoplasty, otherwise known as nose reshaping surgery, by Dr. Cortes does more than refine or reshape the appearance of your nose.
