Rhinoplasty, or more commonly referred to by patients as a “nose job” or “nose reshaping,” is one of the most popular cosmetic operations discussed in pop culture. But contradictory to popular belief, a rhinoplasty procedure is not always about cosmetic enhancement. There are many benefits for this type of surgery, both cosmetic and medical. At Hanemann Plastic Surgery, rhinoplasty is just one of the many cosmetic procedures we perform.
Correct Breathing Issues
Rhinoplasty can be conducted for corrective reasons just as much as cosmetic ones. Deviated septums can cause difficulty breathing in one or both nostrils, nosebleeds due to dryness, excessive snoring during sleep, and even facial pain. Patients that suffer from issues caused by a deviated septum often seek cosmetic surgery as a solution. Rhinoplasty is also a common solution for those who suffer from chronic sinusitis and chronic snoring.
Some people are born with congenital malformations that require corrective rhinoplasty. There are also those that require corrective surgery after a severe nose break. The nose is the most common bone to break in the human body. A nose break is a common injury in car accidents, falls, and sporting events.
The procedure can also be conducted to correct mistakes from previous surgeries. This type of surgery is also known as a revision, secondary, or tertiary rhinoplasty.
So for many, rhinoplasty procedures offer necessary solutions to restore both a normal appearance as well as healthy breathing functions – even though the results can also enhance someone’s cosmetic appearance.
Improve or Create Facial Balance
The majority of those that seek this type of cosmetic surgery are interested in rhinoplasty for aesthetic and cosmetic reasons. A good surgeon can create symmetry and balance in your facial structure by creating a nose that is a custom fit for the shape of your face. Those who have received the surgery for cosmetic reasons have purported several personal benefits.
The surgery can increase the self-confidence of its recipients. This confidence boost carries over to many different aspects of life, from personal to professional. Creating facial balance can make you look younger and more appealing to colleagues, peers, and most importantly, yourself.
Cosmetic procedures, of all types, have long been conducted to improve the quality of life for a host of reasons. The vast majority of procedures are conducted out of aesthetic or medical reasons, and have nothing to do with vanity. But it is important to note, both the physical and mental health improvements that can be achieved with cosmetic surgery procedures, instead of focusing solely on aesthetic goals. The reality is that this type of surgery has improved the lives of millions of people around the world.
