A nose job is the more common term for rhinoplasty. It has been done for centuries and today is a safe and modern procedure that can dramatically improve your life. However, it is a surgical procedure. When you consult with our expert, you can learn more about the procedure and if it can help with your issues.
Rhinoplasty reshapes the nose in several ways, depending on what the patient wants. It can change the angle of the nose as it relates to the upper lip, correct bumps and indentations and may change the position of the tip.
Three of the most common reasons to consider a nose job are:
• Cosmetic reasons – If you feel that your nose looks unattractive and is out of proportion to the rest of your face, it may damage your self-esteem and make you feel self-conscious when you are in society or at work. Rhinoplasty can reduce the size, make the bridge of the nose smoother and make it straight. An attractive nose will not only improve your appearance, but it will also boost your self-esteem.
• Breathing problems – If you have breathing problems that are caused by deformities inside your nasal passages such as a deviated septum or nasal polyps and enlarged turbinates, you may suffer from breathing and sleeping issues. In some cases, both structural problems and cosmetic issues can be removed with a nose job.
• Accidents and injury – If you play a team sport or enjoy outdoor activities such as skiing or rock climbing, you may be at a greater risk of nose injuries. Anyone may get a broken nose in a car accident. When an injury happens, both reconstruction surgery and cosmetic surgery are often required to help get the nose back to its original appearance or better. If it does not hamper your breathing, you may elect not to have surgery, but a broken nose rarely heals well and often looks crooked.
During a consultation with our expert at Facial Aesthetic Concepts, you may discuss your expectations regarding nose surgery. It is important that you and our surgeon be clear about what outcome is possible and what is not possible. The inside and outside of your nose will be closely examined to determine if you are a good candidate for rhinoplasty.
Whether you want to breathe easier, sleep better or look better, changing the shape and functionality of your nose can make a big difference in your lifestyle.
