Whether you’ve always been unhappy with your nose or you’ve sustained an injury that changed the way it looks, rhinoplasty offers a way to improve it. There are several advantages to undergoing this surgery. It not only improves the appearance of your nose but may also help it to function better. This can have significant benefits for your quality of life.
Better Balance of Facial Features
One of the biggest benefits of having rhinoplasty is that you can finally achieve a nose that fits in better with the rest of your facial features.
Patients choose to have nasal surgery for a variety of reasons. Some feel that their nose is too small or too large for their facial structure. Some are displeased with a large, prominent lump on the nasal bridge. Others don’t like the tip of their nose because it’s upturned, hooked, bulbous or droopy.
During your consultation appointment, the surgeon may use special computer software that can give you a more accurate idea of the results you can expect from certain alterations. This software allows you to see if the nose you picture yourself having will truly look good with the rest of your facial features.
Changing the shape and size of your nose can enhance your looks in several ways. A nose that is undersized can make your other facial features seem disproportionately small. Meanwhile, a nose that is oversized can draw unwanted attention and cause you to feel self-conscious.
Rhinoplasty enables you to achieve better overall facial balance and symmetry.
Improved Nasal Function
While many people consider rhinoplasty to be completely cosmetic, it can help improve the way a patient’s nose works.
The surgeon can repair a deviated septum, which would improve the ability to breathe through the nose. Rhinoplasty may also be performed to widen the nasal passages, which would improve breathing as well.
For many people, the most significant benefit of rhinoplasty is that it increases their self-esteem and self-confidence.
One of the main reasons why this occurs may be because the patient experiences a boost in confidence now that they have the nose they always thought they should have. They’re no longer concerned with the appearance of their nose and what other people are thinking about it.
