Is Rhinoplasty worth it
If you do not like the appearance of your nose, you have likely considered taking steps to correct it. Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that may be able to help you improve the size and shape of your nose. In addition to its cosmetic benefits, this procedure can be used to repair your nose after trauma or illness and improve the functionality of your nose, addressing breathing problems that can impact your ability to sleep and exercise.
The overall goal of rhinoplasty is to improve the appearance and functionality of your nose. Realistically, though, what can be done to your nose is going to be determined by the architecture of your face, the health of your spots skin, and the current shape of your nose. The surgical procedure is a mixture of art and science. However, when performed correctly, it can produce favourable and long-lasting results.
Am I a Good Candidate for This Procedure?
To be a good candidate for this procedure, your nose should be done growing. For girls, the nose usually stops growing at between 15 years and 16 years of age. For boys, the nose usually stops growing between 17 years and 18 years of age.
Your surgeon may make an exception to this rule for patients who have birth defects, like a cleft palate. Cosmetic surgery and functional surgery may be combined to improve self-confidence and breathing.
To be a good candidate for a nose job, you need to understand what the procedure entails, including the benefits and risks of the procedure. Rhinoplasty is unbelievably safe. Doctors have been performing this surgery type for decades. Modern techniques and procedures have made this cosmetic surgical option one of the safest around.
The better you understand the procedure, the better you understand what the surgery can do and what it cannot do and the better chance there is that you will be happy with the results. It is important that you have realistic goals for this procedure from the outset.
Nose Job Procedure?
Many people come in for an initial consultation and bring a photograph of their favourite actress, musician, or sports star and say that they want their nose to look just like the individual in the picture. There are several reasons why thinking of this sort is unrealistic and potentially damaging.
Your nose plays a vital role. Because of where it is located, in the centre of the face, it has the task of bringing harmony to your entire face. As such, your nose needs to work well with your other facial features.
A nose that looks great on your favourite actor or actress may not work well with your facial features. Instead of enhancing the way you look, trying to emulate someone else’s nose can detract from your appearance, making you look disfigured. This is why no ethical cosmetic surgeon is going to encourage you to try to use cosmetic surgery to make your nose look like someone else’s.
Some people want to get a nose job because they feel that it is going to improve the way that other people view them. And while it is true that a nose job can improve the symmetry of your face, giving you a more traditionally attractive appearance, it is not going to change who you are. Sure, your friends and family will likely notice the change and you will likely get some positive comments on the improvements, but it would be shortsighted to see this surgical procedure as a way of revamping your identity.
Worse yet would be having this surgical procedure done because someone else told you that you needed to have it done. Having this procedure done may please another person, perhaps a friend, spouse, or partner, for a while, but you may be left feeling unhappy with the way that you look. If you have this cosmetic surgery done because you think it is going to improve your relationship with another person, you are setting yourself up for disappointment.
Good Reasons to Have Rhinoplasty Surgery
There are good reasons to want to have rhinoplasty surgery. Top on the list is wanting to feel happier with your appearance. There is nothing wrong with looking at yourself in the mirror and realizing that as much as you love yourself, there are certain things about your appearance you want to change.
If you approach this surgical procedure from that vantage point, you are more likely to be happy with the results. It is important that you are realistic about what the procedure can do for you and what it cannot do for you.
When you visit your cosmetic surgeon, you should be able to express what it is you do not like about your nose. Parents may want to work with teenagers as they can have trouble expressing their desires because they lack the vocabulary and change their minds often. So it’s good for parents to make sure that their teenager’s goal is clear and decided on.
Having a nose job can be scary for some people. But there’s not too much to it. If you are unhappy with the way your nose looks, if you have had an accident, or there are medical problems that are affecting the workings of your nose, surgery is an excellent way to improve the quality of your life and help you feel more confident.
