Noses come in all shapes and sizes and people may have a variety of reasons for wanting to alter them.
Many of these reasons are aesthetically based, where people wish to alter their physical appearance.
However, rhinoplasty can benefit you in several important ways that are not only cosmetic. It can also improve your physical and mental health.
Physical Health Benefits of Rhinoplasty
- Improve Your Breathing
This is one of the most important things that rhinoplasty can do for you. Many people suffer from obstructions in their nose, which can occur from trauma, disease, or genetics. Breathing can also be impaired from a deviated septum or cartilage enlargement deep in the nasal cavity. Rhinoplasty can correct all these issues to help you breathe easier.
- Sleep Easier
If you can breathe better, you can sleep better! Conditions like congested or swollen sinuses, sleep apnea, allergies, or fluid drainage from your sinuses can all prevent you from breathing through your nose while you sleep. Mouth breathing can also cause bacteria growth in your mouth. Clear nasal passages will allow you to breathe through your nose while you sleep.
- Restore Your Nose to Its Original State After Surgery or Trauma
Certain cancers can affect your appearance when surgery is required. For example, skin cancer may require surgical removal of lesions or other tissues. Trauma to your nose can leave scars or damage the internal structure. Rhinoplasty can improve the facial damage left by these kinds of events.
- Preserve Your Ethnicity
Some rhinoplasty surgeons, like Dr. Naderi, also specialize in ethnic rhinoplasty. This type of surgery is specifically designed to cater to an individual patient’s culture when designing the appearance of their nose. This allows the patient to match their ethnicity instead of getting a cookie cutter nose.
- Create the Best Version of Yourself
When people are healthy, they reap all the benefits of looking and feeling their absolute best. There are several ways to alter your physical appearance, including weight loss, hair dyes, or tattoos. Rhinoplasty is a permanent, surgical change that you and your doctor can design to help you feel like the very best version of yourself.
Mental Benefits of Rhinoplasty
- Gain Self-Confidence
When you don’t feel that you look your best, it’s difficult to be confident in your appearance. The nose is one of the focal points of the face and is a common source of embarrassment for people who don’t like how it looks. Rhinoplasty can transform your face and give you more confidence in your daily life.
Lifestyle Benefits of Rhinoplasty
- Get Ahead in the Workforce
Some careers are heavily based in physical appearance, such as modeling or acting. For some, the look of their face will determine whether they succeed or fail in the business. Even if you don’t have such a career, the self-confidence that comes from looking and feeling your best can give you a great advantage by making you more appealing to potential or current employers.
- Look Younger
As the focal point of your face, the nose contributes to facial harmony with the rest of your features. For some, the nose doesn’t match the rest of the face and can cause the individual to look older than they really are. Rhinoplasty can remove excess cartilage or tissue and reshape the nose to give your face a more harmonized and youthful look.
- Look More Masculine or More Feminine
We’ve all experienced that awkward moment where we mistake a person for the wrong gender. This can be due to how a person dresses or carries herself, but it can also be due to their physical appearance. Unfortunately, genetics plays an enormous role in how we look to others. Some women may be genetically prone to larger noses, which are more characteristic of men, while some men may have noses that blend in to their face, which are more characteristic of men. Rhinoplasty can give you a nose that better matches your gender.
For those individuals who are transgender or dress as the opposite gender regularly, rhinoplasty can also create a nose to match the desired gender.
- Enjoy Your Appearance
Human beings can be their own worst critics. Wouldn’t it be amazing to look in the mirror and think, “I look great today!” Having a positive self-image can lead to improvements in your attitude and your outlook on life.
Rhinoplasty is one of the oldest cosmetic procedures known to man and continues to be one of the most popular choices amongst plastic surgery patients. Each patient is unique, which different needs and lifestyles. Rhinoplasty can be beneficial to these patients in more ways than one. Other than the obvious cosmetic enhancement, rhinoplasty can improve a person’s lifestyle by improving their physical and mental health.
