Do you struggle with chronic congestion?
Is it hard to breathe easily?
Do you wish that your nose was smaller? Straighter?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you may be an ideal candidate for rhinoplasty or a “nose job.”
People opt for a nose job for a variety of reasons, some of which are primarily medical and others are primarily cosmetic.
Read on to find out 5 reasons to consider a nose job as you research if rhinoplasty is the right procedure for you.
1.You have a deviated septum.
The septum is a wall of cartilage between the two nostrils and divides the nasal cavity in half. An ideal septum is centered in the nose and creates an even passageway on both the left and right side. A deviated septum, which occurs when the septum shifts away from the midline, can cause cosmetic problems, as well as issues with breathing.
Rhinoplasty can help correct this. You’ll both look better and feel better as correcting a deviated septum will restore visual symmetry and improve breathing.
2.You’ve injured your nose.
Following an accident or trauma that causes facial injury, your nose may not heal properly. The shape may be altered, or you may have trouble breathing.
Rhinoplasty, in this case, may serve two purposes: to return your appearance to your pre-accident look and to restore health.
3. You have a crooked or larger nose, a bump, a hook, or another unwanted characteristic.
Simply put, if you don’t like what you see in the mirror, a nose job can help! If you’d like a nose that’s slimmer, smoother, or smaller, then you may be a great candidate for rhinoplasty.
Rhinoplasty can correct all sorts of cosmetic concerns, such as a bump, a hook, a wide nose, a thick or bulbous tip, nostril size and position, nasal asymmetry, and nose size in relation to face size and shape.
4.You’ve had facial or nasal surgery for an unrelated issue (such as skin cancer removal)
A nose job was never on your radar—until now.
If you’ve had surgery to your face, nose, or upper lip for a different reason (such as skin cancer removal), the appearance and function of your nose could be impacted. Rhinoplasty can be critical in reshaping or reconstructing the nose and restoring both your appearance and health completely following these types of procedures.
5. You’re just not happy with your nose and the way it appears on your face
A primary goal of rhinoplasty is to achieve a revised version of a nose that beautifully complements each patient’s unique facial features and beauty. If you’re looking for a natural update that will enhance your overall appearance, a nose job may be the perfect procedure for you.
