Every year, hundreds of thousands of people undergo rhinoplasty to change the appearance of their nose. Although it is primarily performed for cosmetic reasons, rhinoplasty can also correct congenital nasal defects or the effects of an injury.
If you are considering having rhinoplasty, it’s crucial to have as much information as possible about the procedure, so you can weigh the potential benefits against the risks. To help you gather the information you need, Dr. Lloyd Landsman, a respected Long Island plastic surgeon, discusses some of the real benefits of a nose job.
Each rhinoplasty patient has unique flaws that they would like to remedy as well as a specific idea of how they’d like their nose to look after surgery. For example, some patients want to reduce an oversized or wide nose that is the focal point of the face, or improve the balance between the nose and the facial features. Others want to subtly refine an element like the nasal tip or the bridge. Certain patients wish to correct the effects of an injury or an accident that has changed the appearance of their nose and reclaim the way they used to look. A talented rhinoplasty surgeon can create a more attractive looking nose that “fits” the patient’s face.
Improving the appearance of the nose can dramatically boost the self-confidence of someone that has spent years bothered by the way they look. Rhinoplasty can be life-changing for someone whose self-esteem and confidence is linked to their appearance. It can also be transformational for people that are teased or bullied because of their nose.
Some rhinoplasty procedures resolve issues with the nasal structures that impede airflow and affect breathing. A great example is a rhinoplasty procedure performed to straighten a crooked nose and crooked septum for a more attractive nose and better airflow.
Many people with airflow issues are not able to sleep as well as they would like. They may wake up repeatedly at night, or snore constantly. Clearing obstructed nasal passages and improving airflow through rhinoplasty can result in more restful sleep.
