Rhinoplasty, also referred to as a nose job, is a plastic surgery procedure for reconstructing and correcting thus restoring the form and functions of a nose. Rhinoplasty is a plastic surgery method that can be corrective or cosmetic. Revision rhinoplasty is common and many plastic surgeons carry it out quite often.
Before embarking on the journey of getting rhinoplasty done, ensure that you are sure of a few things. Have realistic expectations and be encouraged by the fact that the benefits will outweigh the risks.
If you are considering a rhinoplasty procedure, the following are some of the advantages that come with the procedure:
1. Improved Breathing
There are structures in the nose that enable breathing and flow of air within the nose. Breathing problems are a common complaint among very many people nowadays. Whether mild or severe, breathing problems can scare and frustrate you.
These issues may be because of different things such as accident traumas, altercations of the nasal septum or sports injuries. The nasal septum is a wall which separates the left and right side of the nose and if crooked, all sides of the nasal airway may be blocked to airflow.
In such a situation, it would be advisable to check if nasal surgery can be performed to shrink the size of the turbinate and improve the flow of air. Also known as the septoplasty, once performed, your breathing difficulties are gone.
Noses come in different shapes and sizes and some noses may be distracting on one’s face. A particular nose may be the reason for disproportionality between the nose and the face. This is why most people, especially celebrities are known or recognized by their noses. Therefore, such people would not consider having rhinoplasty because their noses form part of their identity as celebrities.
On the other hand however, other non-famous people may take their noses as abnormal. These are the kind of people who pursue rhinoplasty in order to have their faces proportional to their nose and have what is considered a normal face.
3. Self-image and Confidence
There are people who suffer from poor self-image and low self-esteem issues due to bullying. Therefore, positive changes to their appearance can boost their confidence after having a rhinoplasty procedure done.
4. Better sleep
There are people who suffer from lack of sleep or snoring, both of which are usually related to breathing problems. However, once they undergo treatment, either revision or corrective rhinoplasty, one is able to sleep better at night because their nasal passageways are redesigned to alleviate the breathing issues that cause sleepless nights. This way, they are able to sleep better.
Please note that it is critical that you engage a highly trained and certified plastic surgeon for your rhinoplasty. This ensures that there are no further and severe complications in your procedure. Many times, complications in your rhinoplasty procedure lead to more plastic surgeries which we know are not cheap.
