Rhinoplasty is unquestionably one of the best-known surgical cosmetic procedures. More commonly referred to as a nose job, it has been done on countless stars and celebrities. Over the past few decades, though, rhinoplasty has gone from being something that is only performed on the rich and famous to something that is performed on just about anyone who does not like the look or shape of their nose.
This procedure comes in two different forms. There is functional rhinoplasty, which is performed to fix a medical condition, such as a deviated septum. Then there is cosmetic rhinoplasty, which is performed for purely aesthetic reasons. Often times, when people have functional rhinoplasty performed, it results in some aesthetic correction being performed as well.
There are a lot of reasons why people opt for this procedure. The majority of these reasons revolves around them just not liking the way their nose looks. Their nose may be crooked, they might have a bump on their nose or their nose might not be proportionate to their face. Regardless of the reasons why a person is interested in rhinoplasty, there are a few things that they should consider as they go through the decision-making process.
First and foremost, it is important to understand that there is no such thing as a perfect nose. Even when rhinoplasty is performed by our skilled cosmetic surgeon, there are still going to be tiny flaws in your nose. Individuals who are the happiest after their procedure are those who understand that they are going in for an improvement, but they are not looking for the perfect nose.
Is also good to remember that in the days and weeks following rhinoplasty, you’re going to need some time to heal. You’re not going to walk out of plastic surgery with a brand new nose. The truth is that your nose is going to be swollen at first. However, this is just a part of the healing process.
It is important for anyone who is looking to have rhinoplasty done for cosmetic reasons to want to do it for themselves. If you choose to have the surgery done in order to impress someone else, you are going to walk away feeling very disappointed.
