Rhinoplasty Before and After in Ohio
Rhinoplasty before and after photos are one of the most important part of the decision-making process when considering rhinoplasty surgery in Ohio. If you’re considering rhinoplasty you have likely have looked at hundreds, if not thousands, of rhinoplasty before and after photos.
In rhinoplasty surgeon’s offices in Ohio, such as Harmych Facial Plastic Surgery, you can create your own rhinoplasty before and after photo renderings of your nose using software or applications. Let’s look at some rhinoplasty before and after photos to help make the rhinoplasty consultation process a little bit easier. We’ll also discuss some basic medical terms so you can better understand your surgeon when looking at rhinoplasty before and after photos.
Rhinoplasty Before and After Photo Angles
Rhinoplasty before and after photos will be comprised of six views:
- Three quarter, or oblique (both right and left)
- Profile, or side view (both right and left)
Additional rhinoplasty before and after photos may include images of the patient while smiling. Occasionally, rhinoplasty surgeons may show a partial three quarter, or oblique, view. A view of the nasal dorsum (with the patients chin tucked) is also sometimes provided. To adequately evaluate the rhinoplasty result you’ll want to view at least the standard six views listed above. The entire face should be shown in the rhinoplasty before and after images so that facial proportions may be visualized, as it is important to evaluate the nose as it relates to the entire face.
Rhinoplasty Before and After Frontal View
A frontal view of rhinoplasty before and after is shown below. The photo is taken from eye level with the patient focused on the camera. There is no rotation of the head so that the viewer is able to see the entire face symmetrically. The entire face is visible. Since there is nothing obscuring or interfering with the view, such as blocks or blurring over the eyes, the viewer is able to see the entire face and make an an accurate assessment of the before and after result.
Rhinoplasty Before and After Basal View
The rhinoplasty basal view is shown below. The tip of the nose is aligned with the center of the glabella, or area between the eyebrows. Again, there is no rotation of the head.
Rhinoplasty Before and After Oblique (Three Quarter) View
The rhinoplasty three quarter view is shown below. The patient is rotated 45 degrees from the camera. Again, the eyes are focused at eye level and the head is in the neutral plane. The tip of the nose should align approximately with the edge of the cheek. Notice the head is rotated to the same degree in the before and after photo. Consistency in both the rhinoplasty before and after is important to accurately assess the result.
Rhinoplasty Before and After Profile View
The rhinoplasty profile view is shown below. The patient’s head is again oriented in the neutral plane and the eyes are focused at eye level. There is consistency between the before and after. Rotation of the head, especially on the profile view, can make a rhinoplasty before and after misleading. Any rotation of the head in the after photo may make the dorsum look slightly lower than a true profile view.

Rhinoplasty Before and After Photos During the Consultation
It is important to view many rhinoplasty before and after photos during your consultation. You’ll want to make sure that you are able to get a good idea of the type of results and degree of change that is possible. By viewing many before and after photos, you should be able to get a “feel” for the results typical for the surgeon. Patients often want to see a nose that is just like their own. However, finding two identical noses (or even two similar noses) is not possible. Each nose is unique. This is why simulated computerized imaging of the possible result is so important during your rhinoplasty consultation.
Where Can I See More Rhinoplasty Before and After Photos?
Additional rhinoplasty before and after images should be available to view in the surgeons office during consultation. Keep in mind that some patients may be concerned about privacy. Sometimes rhinoplasty patients are more comfortable having their before and after photos displayed only in the office. During you consultation with Dr. Harmych, you will have the opportunity to view photos that are not available on the website.

About Rhinoplasty Before and After Photos
Some plastic surgeons keep a professional photographer on staff. However, most do not! So, it is likely that you may notice some inconsistencies with the photos, such as differences in lighting, camera angles, coloring of backdrops. To some degree, this is expected and suggests a degree of authenticity. Although, patients should be wary of photos with drastic inconsistencies, such as changes in backgrounds or images that appear altered or “photoshopped”. Some surgeons have had rhinoplasty before and after photos stolen or duplicated and used in a fraudulent manner. Dr. Harmych always has his patients before and after photos watermarked to lessen the risk of his rhinoplasty before and after photos being misused. Dr. Harmych always respects patients privacy and never uses before and after photos without written consent.
When reviewing rhinoplasty before and after photos you might see a patient with blocks covering or blurring over the eyes. This is often done in an attempt to protect the patients privacy. Although, a prospective patient might also be wary of photos in which any part of the face is blurred or blocked out as this may suggest that the photo has been used without the patients permission. For the same reason, you might be skeptical of rhinoplasty images that show only the nose, excluding the rest of the face. Keep in mind that a full view of the face is required to evaluate the face. With this view, it is impossible to asses the result and determine whether or not the nose is proportional, or in harmony, with the patient’s face.
What Can Rhinoplasty Fix?
Patients often consider rhinoplasty to improve:
- Nasal asymmetry or a “crooked nose”
- Dorsal hump or high nasal bridge
- Facial proportions
- Nasal breathing problems
Rhinoplasty should be tailored to the individual patient to address their specific anatomy and expected results. Dr. Harmych’s philosophy on rhinoplasty is conservative. The goal is maintain the appearance of your nose by tailoring the proportions of the nose in a subtle way so that the nose still looks like your nose- not like a nose that has been “operated on”. After thoroughly examining you, Dr. Harmych, an experienced and well-qualified rhinoplasty surgeon, can discuss the details of the specific operation required to achieve your desired results. Dr. Harmych offers simulated computer imaging to all potential primary rhinoplasty patients wishing to discuss the potential results of rhinoplasty.
