Rhinoplasty is currently one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the entire world. Often referred to as a nose job, this procedure can be performed to refine the nose, create better facial aesthetics, restore cosmetic balance and even enhance the functionality of the nasal passages. Following are several important things to consider when attempting to decide whether rhinoplasty is right for you.
The Aesthetic Benefits of Rhinoplasty
The nose is by far one of the most noticeable features on your face. If you have a bulbous or pinched nose tip or uneven or asymmetrical nostrils, these are likely the first things that people see when looking at you. Rhinoplasty can be used to redefine and enhance the nose. It is an effective treatment for eliminating or minimizing the appearance of bumps on the nose bridge, larger or smaller-than-average nose tips and excessively wide or uneven nostrils.
Given that there are multiple ways for this procedure to be performed, rhinoplasty can be used to address a very vast range of cosmetic concerns affecting this facial area. It’s also recommended for people who have had radical changes to other facial features, whether through chin or cheek implants or lip augmentation. In these instances, rhinoplasty can be used for restoring overall facial balance so that all the features coordinate seamlessly.
The Functional Benefits of Rhinoplasty
There are additionally a number of important functional benefits that can be obtained through this procedure. Depending upon the needs of the individual, this may not be classified as a wholly cosmetic procedure. In instances of severe snoring, mouth breathing and sleep apnea, rhinoplasty can be performed to improve the structure and functionality of the nasal passages. It is also commonly used to correct congenital defects that affect breathing abilities, among other things.
Preparing for Rhinoplasty
Traditional rhinoplasty procedures entail a significant amount of recovery time. To achieve their cosmetic goals, many patients require the removal or adjustment of bone, cartilage and tissue. For this reason, the best candidates for a nose job have reasonable expectations and a sincere willingness to follow their post-procedure recommendations for recovery.
