Rhinoplasty, also called a nose job, is a facial cosmetic procedure of the nose to alter its shape or improve function. The surgery is performed to repair nasal fractures, enhance the appearance of the nose, correct congenital disability or solve breathing problems. If you want rhinoplasty to improve your appearance, Michael R. Macdonald M.D asserts that you must wait for the nasal bone to be fully grown. Here are the benefits of rhinoplasty.
The nose is the most prominent feature of your body, and a slight change in shape is quickly notable. The shape of the nose defines your facial proportion and symmetry. Any modification of the nose will affect your face. A straight and symmetrical nose improves the beauty, while a crooked nose reduces attractiveness. Rhinoplasty helps you alter the appearance of your nose into the desired shape and improves your overall facial appearance.
The nose is an essential part of your respiratory system, enabling oxygen and exhaling carbon dioxide into your body. People with small nostrils or injuries flattening the nose may have breathing problems. These disorders can lead to permanent breathing difficulties, hindering you from engaging in physical activities. Rhinoplasty opens up airways allowing you to have an excellent breathing process.
Breathing difficulties can be irritating and also a complication of other health conditions. Snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) are severe sleep disorders. Both disorders can intensify if you have difficulties breathing while asleep. Rhinoplasty improves your breathing, giving you a comfortable sleep. Treating sleep disorders help to minimize the risks of other severe conditions like diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure.
Eliminates sinus problems
Sinus disorders occur due to blockage of the empty spaces behind your facial bones surrounding the nose, in your forehead, and upper cheeks. The blockage causes pressure build-up leading to pain. In some cases, bacteria become trapped in these spaces causing infections. Rhinoplasty aligns the nasal septum eliminating sinus problems.
Uplifts your confidence
A crooked nose can lower your self-confidence affecting your social life. The final result of rhinoplasty will improve your general quality of life. The improvement of appearance, breathing, and better sleep will boost your self-image and self-confidence. You can comfortably involve yourself in public activities without worries of emotional or nasal health disorders.
Fixes broken nose and genetic defects
You can have your nose broken while playing sports or in a car accident. Through rhinoplasty, your surgeon can remove cartilage and add tissue from another body part to reshape your nose to its original shape. Skin and tissue can be draped over to ensure the nose heals into the right or desired shape. The broken nose is fixed to its original form. Rhinoplasty can also help solve genetic defects like lumps, curves, or undeveloped noses.
Although you will see rhinoplasty results within a few weeks, swelling and pain may be present during the healing process. It would help if you went back to your surgeon to help you manage these side effects. Contact your reliable doctor to schedule an appointment if you consider having a rhinoplasty.
