Most all residents of Baton Rouge look at themselves in the mirror every day. Some of these people study the features of their face and privately express horror to themselves for one feature or another they wish were in some way different. Maybe the problem is with the alignment of their eyes, their cheeks seem off or their nose is the source of some ongoing issues they are having with themselves or their well-being. As a result, it may be time to consider seeing our talented plastic surgeon for rhinoplasty. Here are some ways you can tell if it is time to take steps in this direction.
You Want to Change How You Look
Aesthetics are an important part of the lives of many who live in Baton Rouge. There is nothing wrong with wanting to look your best. This may mean that you need to straighten a crooked nose or smoothen out an oddly formed nose. Every day, people visit our plastic surgeon to help them improve key facial features, and the shape and alignment of the nose is one of the areas where people commonly ask for help. If only your nose were the right shape for your face, then you believe you would look better in the mirror and in pictures too. Fortunately, rhinoplasty is a generally safe approach for addressing these and other nose-related conditions.
Another major reason for having rhinoplasty arises from a physical problem with breathing. The shape of some people’s noses makes it next to impossible to get an adequate volume of airflow into the nasal passages. Often caused by a deviated septum, the collapse of the nose can be a major reason for reduced air volume and unwanted snoring. This can make breathing a chore that will, in some cases, get worse over time. If you want to make sure you have no obstructive problems with breathing, you will want to consider seeing our plastic surgeon to correct the structural issues with your nose to improve the overall air flow.
Another complication that results from a deviated septum can arise in the form of sinus problems. Sinus infections and problems with sinusitis can have a huge impact on a person’s quality of life. Everything from raw, stuffy, achy sinuses to constant post nasal drip may urge a person to consider rhinoplasty in an attempt to bring some normalcy to their sinus issues.
