The nose, by virtue of the position on the face, has a major impact on profile and balance with the rest of the facial features. It may appear excessively large if grouped with other aspects of the face that may be deficient in size such as a small upper jaw or a chin point that is retruded with respect to the rest of the face. Careful facial analysis is necessary to give appropriate advice for an individual treatment plan. Because of his experience in dealing with complex facial reconstruction, Dr. Lucas is especially qualified to advise patients in this matter.
Another important aspect of nasal surgery is the understanding of the functional anatomy of the external and inner workings of the nose. Only then can an appropriate treatment plan be formulated for the individual.
As in other aspects of facial aesthetics, placing the nose in balance with surrounding structures is critical. Key aspects include shaping the nasal dorsum and keeping it proportional to the nasal tip projection, providing sculpted features without creating an over-resected appearance which can be a glaring reminder to the observer that a nose has been operated on in the past.
