Benefits of Rhinoplasty Surgery
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your nose, it probably has a much bigger effect on your life than the people around you realize. Those people who dislike certain aspects of the way that they look can find their confidence and self-esteem drops, and they may alter their behaviour so as not to draw attention to their face. However, by doing so, you may find that your professional and personal relationships are also affected.
Unfortunately, as the central feature on our face, our nose is very difficult to hide. Cosmetics can go some way to improving the its appearance, but ultimately, rhinoplasty surgery is the only way to permanently alter the shape, size and overall aesthetics of the nose.
Choosing the right rhinoplasty
There are various types of rhinoplasty, each which focuses on improving a specific aspect of the nose. Which type is right for you will depend on the cosmetic changes you wish to make. However, in addition to aesthetic improvements, rhinoplasty can also add structure to the nose in order to improve airflow, making breathing much easier. This type of rhinoplasty, often called augmentation rhinoplasty, is most often performed on patients who have a flattened nose, whether it is naturally so or the result of trauma, such as a break.
Other types of rhinoplasty include:
- Reduction rhinoplasty: to make the nose smaller
- Septorhinoplasty: to improve the septum as well as the external appearance of the nose
- Rhinotip: altering the tip of the nose and nostrils
To help you determine which type of rhinoplasty is right for you, your surgeon will ask you to attend a consultation appointment. During this meeting, you will discuss your hopes and expectations for your rhinoplasty, and your surgeon will advise you which aesthetic improvements can be made.
Benefits of rhinoplasty surgery
There are a variety of advantages to choosing rhinoplasty surgery. Some of the greatest benefits cited by previous patients include:
Adding symmetry and creating aesthetic balance
Located in the center of our face, our nose is pivotal in the way that our face looks. If it is too big or too small, it may seem out of proportion, and if it is crooked or off to one side, it can interrupt the symmetry of our face. Many studies show that people with symmetrical faces tend to be considered more attractive, so a straight and perfectly positioned nose is a highly desirable feature that can be obtained using rhinoplasty.
Our nose is extremely important for enabling us to breathe. However, for various reasons the airflow through the nose can become compromised. If you have been born with a flattened nose, then this may be something that you don’t notice as you have lived with it all your life. In other circumstances, your nose may have been crushed or broken, causing problems with the septum and structures inside the nose. Whether your flattened nose is natural or the result of a trauma, rhinoplasty can open up your airway and make breathing easier.
Better confidence and self-esteem
Being unhappy with the appearance of your nose can cause you to suffer psychologically. However, when you can look in the mirror and like what you see after your rhinoplasty procedure, you will find your confidence and self-esteem restored, which could benefit various areas of your life.
