There is a reason why rhinoplasty is one of the most popular forms of cosmetic surgery. This procedure has the unique ability to make long-term changes to the way that you look. Rhinoplasty can alter the size and shape of your nose with the goal of making it more proportional to the rest of your face. As with any surgical procedure, the more information that you have about the procedure going into it, the happier you are likely to be with the results.
One of the biggest mistakes that people make when they visit a cosmetic surgeon is to say that they want their nose to look better. “Better” is a relative term. What one person thinks looks better may not be exactly what another individual would think is better. So it is essential for you to know what exactly it is you want to change about your nose prior to talking to our surgeon about rhinoplasty. Even if you don’t know exactly what you want done, you should have a basic idea of what you don’t like about your nose. That way, our talented plastic surgeon can work with you to create a plan of action that will leave you with a nose you will be proud of.
The truth is that most people who want rhinoplasty have had issues with self-image connected to their nose for a long time. Some people were even bullied as children because of their nose. Many of these individuals endured the bullying for a while. However, they lived their lives unhappy with the size and shape of their nose. Now, they are in a good emotional state and have the mental frame of mind that allows them to get this procedure done.
It’s good to remember that not everyone who has rhinoplasty surgery performed does so for purely aesthetic reasons. Usually, when there is an aesthetic issue with your nose, there is also a functional issue. There are many people who have had rhinoplasty performed because they couldn’t breathe, they’ve had a deviated septum, or they’ve had some sort of crookedness that caused a blockage in their nose. When they corrected the functional issue, they were surprised to see how the aesthetics of their nose improved. If you are thinking about having rhinoplasty performed to help you breathe better, be prepared to look better as well.
