7 Reasons to Get a Rhinoplasty

June 10th, 2016

As it sits in the center of your face, your nose is one of the first things people notice about your appearance. If you are unhappy with your nose, for esthetic or medical reasons, it can really take a toll on your self-esteem and general happiness. Today, more people than ever are taking their looks and personal well-being into their own hands and enquiring about cosmetic nose surgery.

There are many valid reasons to opt for a nose job, and undergoing rhinoplasty surgery can give patients a significantly better quality of life, as well as allowing them to feel far more confident within themselves.

Reason #1:  Self esteem

No two individuals are the same and many people are just born with a nose they don’t like. Whether your nose is crooked, prominent, or bumpy, rhinoplasty surgery can boost your confidence significantly.

Carried out well, a nose job will complement and enhance your features, and, as the way you look has a huge impact on all aspects of your life, nasal surgery can be positively life-changing.

Reason #2:  Accidents

It is a fact of life that accidents happen. Whether you have tripped and fallen face first into a hard object, had a swimming pool accident, or were involved in a serious car accident, a rhinoplasty procedure can offer incredible results – particularly when the surgery is carried out within two weeks of the accident.

Reason #3:  Trouble breathing

For individuals who have trouble breathing through the nose, rhinoplasty surgery is an option. A deviated septum (also known as a nostril collapse), can cause a chronic snoring problem and the procedure to correct it is usually covered by insurance.

Reason #4:  Sinus problems

A deviated septum can cause breathing problems and snoring, however, it can also bring on more severe conditions such as sinusitis and sinus infections. The procedure to correct these problems is called a septoplasty. On children, a cosmetic nose surgery procedure occurs when the nasal bone is done growing. For girls, this occurs around the age of 14 or 15, and for boys, somewhat later.

Reason #5:  Cleft palate or cleft lip

This is a very common birth defect that can be simply fixed through rhinoplasty, and is most often carried out on children who are having difficulty eating.

Reason #6:  Chronic rhinitis

Rhinitis is inflammation of the nose that includes sneezing, congestion, itching, and a runny nose. The condition can be non-allergic, allergic, and a mix of the two. If medications fail to offer relief, corrective nasal surgery is used as a last resort, and does offer relief.

Reason #7:  Sleep apnea

Sleep apnea is a condition where normal breathing suddenly stops for a few moments during the night, while sleeping. There are two causes for the condition:

  • Central – where the brain is sending incorrect messages to the respiratory system
  • Obstructive – where soft tissue slides downward and blocks the airway

Where the cause of the condition is obstructive, a rhinoplasty can offer relief.

If you’re unhappy about the way your nose looks or if you’ve been struggling with a medical condition that can be helped by undergoing a rhinoplasty procedure, it’s time to take the next step.
