Rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job, is a procedure to alter the nose in order to place your facial structure in more well-balanced proportions. Harmony Rhinoplasty is about much more than that. The procedure still targets the nose, but the effects enhance the entire face, giving you even facial distributions that are pleasing to the eye.
A New Take on the Traditional “Nose Job”
The Harmony Rhinoplasty was created after reviewing studies on how the retina processes the face. These studies showed that initially, when a person meets another person, the retina scans the face and processes it. In a matter of milliseconds, conclusions are drawn and a person is sized up, judgements are made, and conclusions drawn--all from one glance at the face. This sizing up and judging is a natural human tendency.
The information gathered by the retina is then processed by the brain, allowing a person to think with emotions and expressions. Is this face perceived as a threat? Is it friendly? Is it tired-looking? Is it young or old? Is it a beautiful face?
Bringing Balance to the Face
What we found in patients who desired to change the appearance of their noses was that the nose was frequently “out of balance” with the rest of their facial features. Their features don’t appear as pleasing because the nose itself is dominating or altering the way the face looks, especially when it comes to the eyes. Harmony Rhinoplasty is all about the eyes. What we have found is that when the nasal features are placed in harmony with the rest of a patient’s unique facial features, all a person sees is the eyes. What they don’t see is a rhinoplasty.
These photos help capture how Harmony Rhinoplasty impacts facial balance.
Take a look at these photos and decide what you think about them.
In the “before” photo on the left, the eyes are drawn to the tip of her nose. The nose is an overpowering structure that draws attention. It’s slanted to the right. The nose is larger in this photo, and it appears bulky and out of balance. In the “after” photo on the right, you just notice how beautiful her eyes are.
