Age takes a different toll on everyone. While many Orange County patients understand aging to, mostly, take its toll upon the face, it’s important to note that aging can have a direct impact on a person’s nose, as well. Through the rhinoplasty procedure, Dr. Kevin Sadati can reverse the effects of aging on the nose and provide Newport Beach patients with natural-looking results.
Drooping Nasal TipGiven that the skin loses laxity over the course of time, it’s not surprising that the drooping nasal tip is one of the most common symptoms of aging associated with a person’s nose. Nasal skin also can become thicker as a person gets older, which puts more pressure on the nasal structure.
When the tip begins to droop, a person’s nose appears longer and a hump may even form on the nasal bridge. The nose will look bigger and become a dominant feature on the face. Dr. Kevin Sadati can provide additional structural support for the nose while also reshaping the nasal tip.
Nasal Contour ChangesA person who was born with soft nasal cartilage will begin to notice as the years go by that their nose loses definition and shape. In addition to the strength of a person’s cartilage, the presence of allergies, asthma or other breathing-related illnesses can impact the contours of a person’s nose. Dr. Kevin Sadati can use specific rhinoplasty techniques in order to address the changes that have occurred, and restore the nose to its former glory once again.
Structure WeaknessAs a person ages, the bones throughout all of their body begin to lose density and become weak. This is true in the nasal structure, as well. As a person’s nasal structure becomes weak, they become more susceptible to injuries. The nose protrudes from the center of the face, making it a prime target for injuries during any type of activity. As a person ages, the risk of injury increases.
Nasal Valve ObstructionAs the structure of the nose weakens during the aging process, some patients experience nasal valve collapse and obstruction. This can cause challenging physical symptoms, including difficulty breathing during normal daily tasks and trouble sleeping well throughout the night. Surgery often can correct these issues for the patient, allowing them to, significantly, improve their quality of life.
If you feel that you are suffering from one or more of these conditions as a direct result of aging, it might be time to consider having a nose job performed by an expert facial plastic surgeon. Dr. Kevin Sadati is a highly-skilled surgeon who creates customized surgical plans for every one of his patients. Through his consultation process, Dr. Kevin Sadati takes the time to understand the precise measures that need to be taken in order to provide the patient with the results they are looking for out of their cosmetic surgery experience.
