The Reasons Why People Come In for a Nose Job

Rhinoplasty, popularly known as a nose job, has become one of the most popular facial plastic-surgery procedures. It is a way of changing the shape of your nose for aesthetic and/or functional reasons.

Why Do People Come In for a Nose Job?

The nose is one of the most prominent and noticeable features of the face. The shape of the nose plays a significant role in determining the structure of the face. Because of this, when a person’s nose has aesthetic problems, it can significantly affect their self-image and confidence.

People come in for nose jobs for a variety of reasons, including:

Correction of Injuries: Sometimes, facial injuries can cause damage to your nose, altering its shape. Common causes of nasal trauma include car accidents, falls, and injuries during sports. A nose job can fix a broken or crooked nose and many other issues.

Improvement of Functionality: Another factor that causes many people to come in for rhinoplasty is impaired functionality. A nose job is often required in order to correct the functioning of the nose. When the flow of air through the nasal passageways is obstructed, rhinoplasty can address this problem to improve quality of life.

Enhancement or Correction of Appearance: One of the primary reasons why people get a nose job is to improve or fix the appearance of the nose. Today, due to the emphasis on beauty in society, everybody wants to get that perfect nose. This has led to a rise in a range of plastic-surgery procedures, including rhinoplasty. Because part of facial beauty is the balance between the proportions of all of the facial features, enhancing the look of the nose can improve the look of one’s entire face.

Rhinoplasty: What to Expect

Once you decide to come in for rhinoplasty, the next step will be a consultation with Dr. Bared. Good communication with your doctor is extremely important, and during your consultation, you will be detailing your needs and goals for the surgery.

Based on the structure of your face, Dr. Bared can give you a realistic picture of what to expect in terms of results. He will also describe the details of the process. The exact techniques used vary from case to case. They typically include alteration of the nasal cartilage, bones, and/or soft tissues.

Some people assume that plastic surgery will be painful. However, a nose job is not at all painful, since anesthesia is used to ensure that the patient is comfortable throughout the process. Patients can go home the same day, and most of them feel better in just about two to three days. Mild pain can be addressed with painkillers prescribed by Dr. Bared.
