If you’re considering rhinoplasty, we understand you might feel sensitive about the misconceptions and stereotypes surrounding “nose jobs.” The truth is, while rhinoplasty can do wonders to correct or enhance the appearance of your nose, there are other — perhaps more significant — physical benefits that motivate some people to consider a nose job in the first place.
Before considering any sort of surgical procedure, it’s important to feel comfortable and confident with your decision. That’s why we encourage all of our prospective and returning patients to schedule a consultation, during which we will ensure all of your questions are answered and your concerns addressed.
Whether for purely cosmetic reasons or if your quality of life could be improved by booking a rhinoplasty.
Let’s Review Rhinoplasty
Simply put, rhinoplasty is a nose surgery intended to reshape or otherwise enhance the aesthetic of your nose. Typically associated with cosmetic concerns, a rhinoplasty might be required following facial trauma or to address certain medical conditions.
For instance, the following concerns might be cause for rhinoplasty:
- Chronic allergies that cause severe nasal inflammation
- Cleft lip
- Cleft palate
- Deviated septum
- Nasal masses
- Nasal polyps
Essentially, if respiratory function is impaired or compromised, a rhinoplasty might provide a quality of life-changing result. If you struggle with sleep because of snoring or sleep apnea; if exercise is harder than it should be, a rhinoplasty is worth your consideration.
If so, rest assured that you’re in good company. In fact, last year there were 352,555 rhinoplasties performed, representing a 3% decrease compared to 2019… of course, we were in the middle of a pandemic. A little dip is to be expected and will likely rebound this year as people become more comfortable booking elective procedures again.
