Facial Surgery Can Improve the Appearance of Your Nose
If you are unhappy with your current appearance, facial surgery is a tried and true method of improving it. There are innumerable options available for improving the cosmetic appearance of the face, but a few stand out as the most effective methods depending on what portion of the face you are unsatisfied with.
Rhinoplasties are one of the most common and most effective methods of facial transformation.
The nose is often the target of disdain when it comes to a patient being unhappy with his or her appearance. A nose reshaping, also known as rhinoplasty, can make a person’s face appear more proportionate and attractive. The nose is a small part of the face that makes a big difference when it is changed. Many a person complains that his or her face looks imbalanced, but do not immediately see that the nose is the culprit of the discord. A change in nose size or shape makes a beautiful difference in the symmetry of the entire face. Rhinoplasties can also improve the appearance of humps or raised bridges, and they can reshape an enlarged or drooping nasal tip. Nostrils can even be changed per request.
In addition to being performed for improved cosmetic appearance, rhinoplasties can improve airway obstructions. Some people are born with noses that are structured in a way that restricts airflow. One of the most common problems like this is called a deviated septum. Many people with structural problems of the nose also experience migraines, constant congestion, and sinus pressure. Breathing obstructions can quickly be repaired with a surgical adjustment of the nasal alignment. This procedure will improve the patient’s ability to breath freely and help them avoid snoring. It may also enhance their appearance as an added benefit.
Patients who have had a broken nose in the past may complain of the healed appearance of their nose, and some of them still experience pain related to the injury. A rhinoplasty can reconstruct the nose to its former appearance or an even better one and reduce pain associated with a past injury.
Who qualifies for this facial surgery?
Candidates for a rhinoplasty facial surgery must be physically healthy, not currently a smoker, have realistic goals and be at an age where they have finished growing. While technically the cartilage of the nose never stops growing, the bones will have completed their growth after puberty. The bones will see the majority of the work when it comes to rhinoplasty.
Patients can influence the outcome of the surgery
Rhinoplasty facial procedures are customized to each patient. The patient and surgeon will discuss areas of desired correction and the options available. A more symmetrical and balanced appearance combined with the reduction of glaring abnormalities is the goal the majority of the time when it comes to nose surgery.
