Getting a Nose Job is more popular than ever. Celebrities and well-off people often have rhinoplasty procedures done. These are usually non-surgically conducted procedures that leave no visible scars on the skin. However, many people who want to change how their nose looks think that getting a rhinoplasty is not “right” for them. Whether you are unhappy with the size of your nose, its color, or its shape, there are some reasons why you might want to get a rhinoplasty procedure.
Non-Surgical Rhinoplasties A non-invasive nose job doesn’t require any incisions. Instead, a series of tiny plastic surgeons or cosmetologists use injectable fillers to create small to medium changes to your nose. The best candidates for non-surgically altering your nose are those who have a birth defect for instance; those who have experienced trauma such as a broken nose; those who want a more youthful appearance; those who have an unusually large nose; or those who dislike the appearance of a particular nose characteristic. All other things being equal, opting for a non-surgical procedure may be your best option if you want to get a rhinoplasty (also known as a ‘nose job’) performed.
If you are unhappy with the size of your nasal passages, or if you experience breathing problems while sleeping, then your surgeon will most likely perform rhinoplasties (or a nose job for a wide nose) procedure. Rhinoplasties, also known as ‘lift-ups’, ‘contouring’ or’retraction’ surgeries, manipulate the tissues of the nose by lifting the skin or making slight incisions in the soft tissue. When the surgeon lifts the skin, he or she also sculpts the bone surrounding the nasal passages, resulting in a more natural-looking profile.
Since all of the structures of the nose are essentially made up of bone, cartilage, and skin, when one or more of these tissues become damaged, it can cause distortion of one or more of the structures. In addition, some of the structures can become deformed due to age, trauma, or disease. As a result, you may begin to notice that your nasal cartilage and skin no longer quite fit the way that they used to in the past. This is one reason why many patients request nasal surgery or getting a nose job for wide noses. Since cartilage and skin can be taken out of the body and replaced by other tissue types, many people (even celebrities!) have plastic surgeons perform nose jobs for them.
Many people also request rhinoplasty surgery if they have nasal polyps. Because these small growths can either be malignant or benign, people may have them removed in order to improve their breathing or since removing them could result in significant pain, discomfort, or swelling. Even though most of these polyps are benign, removing them can sometimes be tricky. Since the structures inside the nostrils can change as a person grows older, removing them during childhood can often result in a different profile when an adult finally gets to regain his or her nose. Similarly, people who wear dentures may also request rhinoplasty surgery because they no longer feel comfortable with their dentures.
However, the most common reason for a rhinoplasty (nose job) is to enhance facial features. Indeed, the nose is one of the first features that people notice about you, so choosing to get a nose job is often a way to enhance your appearance. If you think that you might want to get a rhinoplasty someday, then consider trying it as a last resort. However, if your nose is bothering you or if you are noticing that your nose is not wide enough or straight enough, you should be absolutely sure that you really need this cosmetic surgery. The decision is yours, so do not hesitate to seek the best advice you can find.
