It’s the second most popular cosmetic plastic surgery procedure, and it’s number one on many people’s lists, for cosmetic and medical reasons. Rhinoplasty, more commonly known as a nose job, is performed to repair everything from damage caused in an accident, to breathing problems, to size and shape issues.
Thousands of people get nose jobs every year to improve their appearance or correct a health issue, and regardless of the specific reason, the results can be life altering.
Rhinoplasty to improve the nose you were born with
We don’t all loves the noses that nature gave us. You might feel your nose is too prominent or bumpy or crooked – or you may feel its shape simply doesn’t fit your face. And since the nose is such a prominent feature on all of our faces, it can make us feel self-conscious and unhappy throughout our lives.
By improving the appearance of your nose, rhinoplasty can help improve your confidence — by reducing the size, by removing the bumps, by straightening and smoothing — so that your nose enhances your face.
Rhinoplasty after an accident
Whether you trip and land face first or take an elbow to the face in a fierce team sport, your noise can break and not return to its normal shape. But if you have nose surgery within two weeks after your accident, the surgery can have the best results.
Rhinoplasty for breathing problems
If you have breathing problems, you most likely have a deviated septum, which is actually a collapse of the nostril that can also cause snoring. A rhinoplasty procedure can fix the problem, and also be an opportunity to make any cosmetic fixes to your nose at the same time.
Rhinoplasty for sinus infections
A deviated septum not only causes chronic snoring and breathing problems, but it can also cause related health issues such as sinus infections, sinusitis and nasal polyps. If this is your problem, your doctor is likely a recommend a type of rhinoplasty surgery called septoplasty.
