You had no problems with your nose before an accident left it broken. It fit your face and you never had any problems breathing. Not anymore!
In a world that pressures people to look a specific way, many Americans choose to go under the knife every year. A recent study found that rhinoplasty is the second most popular plastic surgery procedure in the United States. But, if you are still on the fence deciding if a nose job is a right choice for you, we have got your back. Keep reading to learn everything you need to know about getting nose surgery.
What is rhinoplasty?
A nose job (rhinoplasty) is a plastic surgery procedure intended to alter the nose. The two kinds of rhinoplasty are reconstructive surgery (functional change) and cosmetic surgery (changing appearance).
Contrary to popular belief, most rhinoplasties don’t involve breaking your nose. For most cases, the healing time and pain involved are minor. To ensure the best possible results, get rhinoplasty by a double-board certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Wise or another experienced surgeon.
Most common reasons to get nose surgery
Everyone’s noses are different and so are their reasons for electing to get plastic surgery. These are some of the most common reasons people choose to go under the knife.
- You can’t breathe
One of the most common (and most urgent) reasons to get rhinoplasty is if you can’t breathe through your nose.
- Chronic sinus issues
For many people, constant sinus pressure and repeated sinus infections cause them to seek relief through rhinoplasty.
- You don’t like the size or shape of your nose
If you don’t like the size or shape of your nose, cosmetic surgery gives you a permanent change.
- You snore … a lot!
If your partner says you sound like a chainsaw when you sleep, you might need a nose job.
- You broke your nose
Accidents happen to everyone. If you broke your nose, you might need plastic surgery to get the shape and function back.
- You want to look like a celebrity
Do you love that actress’s nose? How about the nose on that famous sports star? A skilled surgeon can recreate a celebrity nose on your face.
- Birth defects that affect the nose
Some birth defects change the shape and function of the nose. Rhinoplasty can repair these kinds of defects and give you a natural-looking nose.
- Extreme body modification
Some people choose to change their bodies in extreme ways. One of those ways is by removing or changing the nose in a dramatic way.
- You want to change the way your face looks
Are you going into witness protection? Do you need a fresh start in life? Changing the way your nose looks can make you look like a different person!
- Correcting an unsatisfactory surgery
If you aren’t happy with the results from previous surgery, you may want to re-do it.
Time to pick your nose … shape
Everyone has their own reasons for electing to get rhinoplasty surgery. It is your body, so don’t let the opinions of others weigh heavier than your own.
With the advancements of medical technology, it has never been a better time to schedule your procedure. There is less soft tissue damage and a much quicker healing time than a decade ago.
