Are you thinking of having rhinoplasty but curious about the benefits? When well done, rhinoplasty can be very rewarding and provide both physical and emotional benefits. But what are the benefits of rhinoplasty?
What Is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty, often referred to as a nose job, is a surgical procedure done to reshape the nose. A nose job is often performed for cosmetic reasons, by people who want to change the shape or size of their nose. However, rhinoplasty can also focus on correcting functional problems.
Depending on the extent of the correction needed, rhinoplasty can take anywhere from 1-4 hours to complete.
Benefits Of Rhinoplasty
Enhances Facial Symmetry
A crooked nose can affect facial symmetry and cause the face to look out of balance. Symmetry and facial positioning are therefore taken into account when doing rhinoplasty. Altering the size of the nose can enhance facial symmetry and give the face a balanced, aesthetically pleasing appearance.
Improves Breathing Problems
Some people experience breathing difficulties due to structural abnormalities of the nose, such as a deviated septum. Functional rhinoplasty reshapes the nose and clears blockages of the nasal airway passages to improve airflow and ease breathing problems.
The nose helps to define facial appearance because it is at the center of the face. As a result, people who are dissatisfied with some aspect of their nose often endure years of discontent and body insecurity. Rhinoplasty can therefore be life-changing for these patients because it helps them feel more confident, and improves overall well-being.
Although getting a nose job can positively impact your life in many ways, it’s necessary to have realistic expectations about surgery because there is no such thing as the ‘perfect nose.’
Before undergoing rhinoplasty, it’s essential to be in a good place emotionally and have a healthy perspective of surgery.
