Benefits of a Rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasties are among the most commonly requested cosmetic surgeries in the United States today. There can be many reasons why we dislike our nose. It may seem too big or too small, or out of proportion with the rest of our face. Perhaps the tip is out of alignment or bulbous.
Your nose may even be crooked, possibly due to having been broken. Whatever the cause of dissatisfaction with your nose, it can have a significant impact on your life. In cases where your confidence and self-esteem are severely affected, you may find yourself avoiding social situations and even suffering from depression.
Fortunately, rhinoplasty, also referred to as a “nose job”, gives patients the opportunity to transform the appearance of their nose and enables them to be happy and confident in their appearance.
Which rhinoplasty is right for me?
There are several different types of rhinoplasty, and which is the right one for you will depend on which elements of your nose you most wish to change. The most common types include:
- Reduction rhinoplasty – focuses on making the nose smaller
- Rhinotip rhinoplasty – alters the tip of the nose and nostrils only
- Septorhinoplasty – makes changes to the septum as well as alternating the external appearance of the nose
- Nasal bump rhinoplasty – to remove bumps from the bridge of the nose
- Augmentation rhinoplasty – to build up the shape of the nose, most commonly seen in patients who have ‘flat’ noses
When you attend your consultation appointment, Dr. Potter will ask you about your cosmetic surgery goals and advise you what is achievable and which rhinoplasty procedure is most appropriate.
Benefits of a rhinoplasty
If you are considering a rhinoplasty, you can expect to experience a range of different benefits.
Contrary to popular belief, rhinoplasties aren’t just considered by patients for aesthetic reasons. If you have been born with a particularly flat nose or have suffered an accident or injury that has caused it to become flat, it may sometimes make breathing more difficult as the airflow is compromised. Rhinoplasty procedures can add structure to the nose or septum or widen the nostrils. This will open up the nasal cavity and making breathing much easier.
Improve your appearance
Symmetry of the face is considered by many to be an extremely attractive trait. However, if your nose isn’t perfectly straight, it can make the sides of your face appear unequal. Alternatively, you may have a nose that seems far too big or too small for your face, causing your other features to look out of proportion too. Rhinoplasty can ensure that your nose fits perfectly with the other aspects of your face, improving your overall appearance.
Greater confidence and self-esteem
If you are unhappy with an aspect of your appearance, then your confidence suffers. The effect of this can be profound, ranging from avoiding social functions to impacting on your personal and even professional relationships. However, transforming your appearance with rhinoplasty can restore your confidence and self-esteem and enable you to live life to the full again.
