Facts about nose correction
The nose should above all be one thing: inconspicuous: Facts about nose correction. An unattractive nose distracts from the eyes – this impairs the personal charisma. On the other hand, a beautiful nose creates a harmonious image and emphasises femininity or masculinity.
Although the nose only covers a small area of the face it is of enormous importance for facial beauty. We treat both young patients who decide to have their nose corrected at an early age and people who have always suffered from their nose and wish to have a beautiful nose at a later age. Dr. Muggenthaler gives your nose a harmonious shape that looks good and does not stand out as operated. The result is natural, because Dr. Muggenthaler, as an experienced facial surgeon, knows which shape fits your face perfectly. In addition to a harmonious shape, the nose should also function perfectly as a respiratory organ. If possible, we will also carry out an appropriate correction in this respect.
Especially nose corrections require an extensive consultation and visualization of possible desired outcomes. We deploy state-of-the –art computer programs for this purpose.
