• Nose Lift, one of the Philippines’ In-demand Plastic Surgery Service

    Nose is one of the facial features that make every person’s appearance unique and incomparable with one another. This is usually the first thing a person will look into at first glance. The nose being part of our façade needs to be physically good and enticing for us to better present ourselves in public.

    According to a recent survey, on the average, about 55% of young adults would consider having plastic surgery and that 9% of women are considering having a face lift. Other surveys show that more than 10 million procedures on cosmetic surgery are done in the US alone since 2006, and the number of procedures keeps on increasing by roughly 43% every year.

    Here in the Philippines there is a close similarity with what is happening outside the country, however, face lift is not the usual priority of a Filipino if they want to undergo in a plastic surgery service. The usual procedure that a typical Filipino would choose is either liposuction or nose lift.

    Since most of the Filipino don’t have high nose that can be considered beautiful (in Western belief), many of them choose having it revamped and enhanced. They want to change their appearance to feel more confident and fulfilled. One of the easiest way to do it is through a plastic surgery service, the nose lift.

    This surgery of the nose improves the appearance and proportion of your nose, enhancing facial harmony and self confidence. Surgery of the nose may also correct impaired breathing caused by structural defects in the nose. After the nose lift, one will have a beautiful profile, without conspicuous sign of surgery.

    There are a number of procedures within the scope of nose lift procedure, so the exact nature of the treatment will depend on the desired result. Depending on the extent of the surgery, the operation may take place under a general or local anesthetic and will take around two hours.

    There are two main techniques used in nose reshaping operations: Open and Closed. Open means that some or all made outside the nose; closed means all cuts are made inside the nose.

    A nose lift operation in the Philippines normally involves separating the soft tissue that lies on top of the nose from the bone and cartilage underneath. Depending on the operation, the surgeon might break the nose bone and reposition it and/or reshape the cartilage. This may include lowering humps, narrowing of nasal bones, shaping of the nasal tip or nostril size and improving the angle between the nose and the upper lip. Adding tissue to enhance certain features of the nose can also occur.
