3 Reasons to Consider Nose Job Surgery

Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a nose job, is one of the most commonly performed facial plastic surgery procedures. Whether for cosmetic or medical reasons, many people decide to undergo rhinoplasty to alter the size or shape of their nose.

Many people feel that their nose does not suit their other facial features and choose to opt for rhinoplasty for aesthetic reasons. Others undergo nose surgery for reasons that are medically necessary, for example to assist with breathing issues, following an injury or trauma to the nose or to correct a deviated septum. Either way, a nose that looks good usually functions well too.

However, rhinoplasty surgery often does more than just change the shape of the nose. In fact, nose surgery can have a huge impact on a patient’s emotional, mental and physical wellbeing. When performed by an experienced and skilled plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Laniewski, rhinoplasty can offer a number of amazing benefits. If you have been considering rhinoplasty, it may be time to learn more about how the procedure could positively impact your life.

What is rhinoplasty?

As mentioned, rhinoplasty is a cosmetic procedure designed to reshape or repair the nose by improving its function and/or appearance. Nose surgery can change the shape, size, height and profile of your nose to better suit the proportion of your face.

During the procedure, your cosmetic surgeon will make cuts either between or inside your nostrils. Your skin will be separated from your cartilage or bone, allowing the surgeon to reshape the form of your nose. While rhinoplasty may be an invasive procedure, patients are typically able to return to work or school within a week following surgery.

Physical benefits of nose surgery

As a cosmetic procedure, the most obvious benefit of rhinoplasty can be seen clearly on the face. Nose job surgery offers a host of benefits to patients with noses that may appear crooked, too large or too small. In fact, there are numerous reasons why patients seek nose surgery to correct the form of their nose, including:

  • Shorten or lengthen the nose
  • Widen or narrow the nose
  • Change the shape of the tip of the nose
  • Reduce the size of the nostrils
  • Widen the nostrils
  • Correct a hooked or crooked nose
  • Remove a bump from the bridge of the nose
  • Improve facial symmetry and the proportion of the nose to other facial features


Health benefits of nose surgery

The nose is an essential component of the respiratory system, working with our mouth to inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide. However, many find that their breathing is restricted due to the form of their nose. In fact, a nasal deformity can cause serious health problem, such as recurrent sinus infections, frequent nosebleeds, noisy breathing and snoring and an inability to taste or smell food.

Fortunately, rhinoplasty can combat some of these concerns by making changes to the airways. Correcting a deviated septum and widening the nostrils are amongst the many ways that Dr. Laniewski can help you achieve easier breathing. Again, the health benefits of nose surgery may include:

  • Improve breathing
  • Repair sinus problems, such as a chronically stuffy nose
  • Fix a broken nose
  • Improve sleep quality
  • Combat snoring
  • Correct birth defects


Psychological benefits of nose job surgery

Many people choose to undergo rhinoplasty to combat the self-confidence issues they face due to a misshapen or asymmetrical nose. While this may be purely cosmetic, many find that the appearance of their nose has a severe impact on their self-esteem.

Regardless of whether you opt for rhinoplasty to correct the appearance or function of your nose, you will likely notice an improvement in your psychological health as well. Nose surgery can help you change your personal view of yourself, improve your self-confidence and self-esteem and even combat any bullying or harassment experienced due to the appearance of your nose.

Of course, rhinoplasty is not a magical cure for any bad feelings you may have regarding your appearance. However, with realistic goals and expectations regarding the procedure, the support of loved ones and the right cosmetic surgeon, rhinoplasty may just be the beginning of your journey to better emotional health.
