Perfecting the Art of Your Nose

Depending on where you come from, there are variations in the perfect nose shape. Noses are a space for artistic creation that Dr. Husam Elias spends much of his time working with at Southern California Center for Surgical Arts. We remember the Greeks and their mathematical proportions to the face and body, especially the nose with its angular shapely ideal.

Of course, a lot of time has gone by since the Greeks pointed out their evidence based on symmetry with the nose and the internet has increased the availability for cultural exchange. Now, we can emulsify everything we see in popular culture, ethnic culture and patients’ personal tastes. Variety is everything with rhinoplasty, and we can help you in perfecting the art of your nose at SCCSA.

Why Rhinoplasties Can be Great for Proportioning Out Your Face

We see it every day, someone standing in front of the mirror crinkling their nose or pushing their nostrils in or the tip of their nose upward to see how it would look. Rhinoplasty is popular because it allows you to get the look that you want and the added ability to proportion the natural contours of your face. The rhinoplasty will allow you to do many things to your nose if you don’t like the way it looks now. We can change the width of the nostrils, the angle of the nostrils, shaping the tip, the overall shape of your nose (bumps in the bridge) and any spacing from the top lip.

Changing the size of the nose can enhance your eyes and lashes, make the lips look fuller, and narrow the face. The rhinoplasty provides a buffer in optical illusion if you want to modify or enhance a specific area of the face, Dr. Elias will work with you to draw out a surgical plan. Before you get started with the procedure, we will help you look through every before and after photo we have to give you an idea of what we mean. But how do we proportion your facial features?

The Face in Thirds

There are a few ways you can measure the face to make sure that your new expected styling for your nose complements other facial virtues, so you get the most out of your procedure. As far as proportions go, the face is broken down into three areas—the upper third of the face, the midsection, and the lower third. Those nose should stay within the borders in this mid-section, which we will draw out for you. Again, while we want to proportion out what you have, we want to stress uniqueness throughout the process. Beauty is in the eye of the individual, and we want to capture that at SCCSA.

Your nose will reflect your own personal style and the artistic vision of Dr. Husam Elias which means you will be pleased and so much more with your results. Bring in all of your favorite examples to your consultation and Dr. Elias will work through a surgical plan that incorporates everything you hope to see with respect to proportions and your features.
