All successful rhinoplasty surgeries have at least one thing in common—they all look natural.
A nose that complements your facial features is the most appealing and usually the least noticeable.
Rather than sticking out, a nose job should fit right in.
It’s usually recommended that you consider taking a more delicate approach to your results if you want to have the most natural rhinoplasty results possible.
Patients should avoid getting any kind of nose job that could make their nose look abnormally small or that would not suit their other facial features, as this would look extremely unnatural and it would be easy to tell if you had surgery done.
If you want to know the best way to get work done on your nose without anyone noticing, you’ve come to the right place.
In this article, we’ll talk about how to make sure that your results look as natural as possible so that you can enjoy them without anyone knowing.
What Makes a Nose as Natural as Possible?
Clearly Expressing What You Want to Your Surgeon
You could feel strongly about the aspects of your nose that you dislike, but you might not really know how to express those thoughts.
When discussing your intended goal with your surgeon, be careful to be explicit.
Which of these statements would you think is more helpful to a surgeon you wanted to get a nose job from:
“I don’t like my nose.”
Or, “I think the tip of my nose is too big.”
And, “I feel like the bridge of my nose looks dorky.”
Or how about, “In photos taken from the left, my nose looks so big!”
If you guessed that the later statements were more helpful, you’re right.
That’s because they identify an exact concern you have with your nose, and they say where the problem is.
What: Too big, too small, crooked, bumpy, not elegant, stubby, masculine, etc., etc.
Where: The tip of my nose, the top of my nose, the left side, the right side, the profile view only, my right nostril, etc., etc.

Collect Photos of Noses You Love, and Noses You Don’t
Once you find your perfect plastic surgeon, you’ll want to be able to perfectly communicate what you do want, and what you don’t want.
Besides speaking clearly (as covered above), the best way to do that is to show your surgeon photos!
Collect photos of faces and noses from magazines, bulk mail, and even your friend circle.
Not just photos of what you think looks good, but also of what you don’t think looks good.
Lastly, be sure to look at your surgeon’s before-and-after gallery and do the same: Pick and print out what you like and what you don’t like.
And don’t worry about criticizing their work, since that’s not your intention.
Instead, what you’re saying is “That nose may look good on them, I just don’t like it for myself personally.”
Take all of these photos and tape them on pieces of paper, or put them in a file folder. (It won’t be very helpful to only have them on your phone.)
Being Receptive to Suggestions
You’ve lived with your nose your whole life, so it stands to reason that you have ideas about what you’d want to alter.
That’s a terrific place to start, but it’s also wise to be receptive to the advice of your face plastic surgeon, who is a rhinoplasty specialist.
For instance, you may not like the length or the hump in the center of your nose. Your surgeon may suggest a method to contour your nose that you hadn’t considered after careful inspection and taking into account your other facial characteristics.
For the most natural look thereafter, it could make more sense to contour your nose differently than you first imagined.
Seeking a Second Opinion
It can often be hard to turn down a surgeon or take your business elsewhere.
After all, your surgeon is not only well trained, but will be doing something you can’t do yourself: Operating on your nose.
But the best surgeons are fully understanding of their patients’ interests in getting a second or even third opinion.
That’s the nature of the profession.
Consider Your Nose In Relation to Other Characteristics Of Your Face
You may believe that when you enter a room, the first thing people notice about you is your nose, but this is usually more a matter of perspective than truth.
It only makes sense that, in order to achieve a natural-looking nose job, you must take your nose into consideration in relation to the rest of your face, which also includes your eyes, lips, forehead, and cheekbones.
A professional plastic surgeon will make suggestions for rhinoplasty surgery based on your general face traits to ensure it looks extremely natural.
Even if you may like the concept of having a small, slim nose, if it doesn’t complement the rest of your features, it may seem noticeably out of place.
It is preferable to get rhinoplasty so that your nose will better complement the rest of your distinctive facial characteristics rather than opting to have surgery to adjust it only for cosmetic reasons.
Do Your Homework, Ask Questions, And Take Your Time
Make sure to ask questions during your consultation with your plastic surgeon.
Your doctor has a responsibility to inform you about your rhinoplasty procedure so you feel confident and at ease with your choice.
Likewise, take some time to study before-and-after photos, learn about the operation, the healing process, and anything else you’re uncertain about.
The more information you have before scheduling your nose job, the less startled you’ll be by the whole process.
Additionally, never make a choice under duress.
Make sure that your nose job is the perfect operation for you by taking your time in deciding how and when to get it done.
It’s also crucial to understand that the outcomes won’t be totally apparent right away and usually take a year to heal.
Before you start to notice your results, your nose experiences quite a deal of swelling, bruising, and reshaping but it’s important to remember that this is all part of the process.
By following all of these simple but key factors, you’ll be able to get away with getting a nose job done without anyone knowing you even had any surgical procedure done in the first place.
