Rhinoplasty consistently ranks as one of the most requested plastic surgery procedures among men and women of all ages and walks of life. The reasons why people seek out rhinoplasty are extremely varied and highly personal. Below, Dr. Sean Maguire of Physician’s Center for Beauty reveals the top five reasons why people want to improve the size and/or shape of their nose.
To Boost Self-Confidence
Some people spend years disliking the appearance of their nose, and struggle with feeling self-conscious of its appearance. Improving the shape and/or size of the nose with rhinoplasty can give these patients a boost of much-needed self-confidence that has a positive impact on nearly every area of their life.
To Improve Facial Aesthetics
Improving the appearance of the nose can enhance the overall look of a person’s entire face. Rhinoplasty helps refine the nose so that it blends in with the rest of the face rather than drawing unwanted attention away from the other features.
To Repair the Nose after an Injury
Another common reason to pursue nose reshaping surgery is to correct the effects of a disfiguring accident, like a sports injury or a motor vehicle crash. Rhinoplasty can fix a broken nose or straighten a nose that is crooked or off-center due to a fall, accident or other type of trauma.
To Correct a Deviated Septum
The septum is the cartilage that separates the nostrils, and when it is displaced, it can create difficulty breathing through the nose. Technically, the procedure to repair a deviated septum is known as a septoplasty. However, many people elect to combine septoplasty with slight cosmetic improvements to improve both form and function in the same surgery.
To Address Age-Related Changes
Although the nose may not be the first facial feature to show age, it can certainly change over the years. Gravity can cause the nasal tip to droop and look bulbous. Also, as facial volume diminishes with age, the nose can start to appear larger than it really is. Rhinoplasty can elevate a drooping tip, refine a bulbous tip or bring the nose into better balance with the rest of the face.
