Your nose is the central feature of your face. As such, many men and women find that a nose shape, size, or feature that they don’t like on themselves is causing them to feel self-conscious and insecure. And this results in these individuals seeking a fix with nose surgery. Moreover, the nose can often cause breathing problems that make surgery inevitable.
If you have been considering nose surgery or rhinoplasty, you probably have loads of questions. Below, we’ll answer several of the most common concerns as they relate to this procedure.
Rhinoplasty is the official term for plastic surgery that is performed on the nose. There are a variety of ways to modify the look and function of the nose. Often, cosmetic alterations include things like fixing dorsal bumps or wide nasal tips. Crookedness of the nose can also be fixed with rhinoplasty.
There are several factors that will go into qualifying you for rhinoplasty. First, you’ll need to meet the age requirements. For most surgeons, this means you’ll need to be at least 15. This ensures your mental preparedness for the surgery and the adequate growth of your facial bones. Most candidates must be physically healthy and not be smokers either, and you must have realistic goals in mind for the procedure.
There are numerous benefits to getting rhinoplasty surgery. First and foremost, you’ll receive a renewed sense of self-confidence and self-esteem from the procedure. You’ll never need to be embarrassed or self-conscious about the size, shape, or placement of your nose again. This can help you greatly when it comes to having the confidence to find your dream job, dating and romantic relationships, and much more.
Furthermore, many individuals with breathing problems (for example, from a deviated septum) will benefit from rhinoplasty because the surgery will help them breathe easier and better.
No. Generally speaking, because of the commonality of rhinoplasty and the fact that it has been around for decades, typical rhinoplasty procedures are safe. In fact, these surgical procedures have never been safer than they are right now. Complications of the procedure are extremely rare, and if, by chance, a complication does occur, it’s generally easily treatable.
