Benefits of Rhinoplasty


Benefits of Rhinoplasty

When it comes to facial cosmetic surgeries, rhinoplasty is by far one of the most commonly requested. Our nose is the central feature on our face and is impossible to hide. Unfortunately, this means that when you dislike the appearance of your nose, the psychological fallout can be huge. Embarrassment, shame, and low self-esteem are just some of the feelings and effects you may experience. Your personal and work relationships may also suffer as a result of your loss of confidence. 

Fortunately, there is no longer any need to live with a nose that make you dread looking in the mirror. Rhinoplasty surgery can address various aspects of this important feature, including its size, shape and overall appearance.

Types of Rhinoplasty

It may surprise you to learn that there is more than one type of rhinoplasty. In fact, there are several different surgeries, each which concentrates on altering a specific element of your nose, be this it’s shape, size, a bump on the bridge or something else entirely. There is also a type of rhinoplasty called augmentation rhinoplasty which focuses on building up the structure of flattened noses, with the purpose of improving airflow. This type of surgery is particularly popular with boxers and patients who have had trauma to the nose that has caused their nasal breathing to be compromised.

Some of the most commonly requested types of rhinoplasty include:

-         Reduction rhinoplasty, to make the nose smaller

-         Nose hump rhinoplasty, to eliminate the hump on the nose

-         Septorhinoplasty, which focuses on fixing the septum

-         Rhinotip, which alters the tip of the nose and nostrils

When you choose rhinoplasty surgery, you will be asked to attend a consultation meeting which will give you the opportunity to talk to your surgeon about the aspects of your nose that you wish to choose. Using this information, your surgeon will be able to recommend the right type of rhinoplasty and explain how it will change the appearance of your nose and face.

Benefits of Rhinoplasty

Changing the way that your nose looks can also have a dramatic effect on the overall appearance of your face. Great rhinoplasty surgery may be able to make your features seem in greater proportion or make your face seem more symmetrical – a feature that is considered very attractive and desirable.

Rhinoplasty surgery can make you feel happier when you look in the mirror, and this can have untold psychological benefits including better confidence, higher self-esteem and a feeling of contentment. You may feel more attractive, which can improve your personal life and boost your confidence even more. Unfortunately, some teenagers get bullied because of the appearance of their nose. Rhinoplasty surgery can eliminate this problem and help children who have missed school due to bullying receive the education they deserve.

Finally, rhinoplasty can drastically improve the quality of your breathing, particularly if you have small nasal passages or your nose has been broken or flattened. By improving your breathing, you can reduce associated problems such as sinus problems, snoring and sleep apnea.
