Everything you need to know about your nose correction.
The nose is the most noticeable and central part of the face and a determining factor for its proportionality and harmony. With its shape, size and location, your nose can complement your radiant smile and bright eyes or distract from your other features. An experienced plastic surgeon can help those who feel they fall into the latter category.
If you're asking yourself, "Should I get a nose job?", continue reading. We'll cover the most common reasons why people want to change their nose, what a facial plastic surgeon can do, and everything else you need to know.
WHAT IS RHINOPLASTY?
Rhinoplasty is a surgical nose correction that involves altering the cartilage and/or bones of the nose to achieve a new shape and size. It can also resolve breathing problems for those who have a functional nose problem.
WHEN DO YOU NEED RHINOPLASTY?
The most motivating factor behind the majority of cosmetic rhinoplasties is the concept of facial harmony. The idea is that all of your features should be well balanced in proportion to one another. People who seek cosmetic nose surgery do so because they feel that their noses distract or throw off the balance of their other facial features. Do you think your nose complements your face - or takes away from it?
Changing the appearance of your face, especially your nose, can boost your self-esteem and confidence.
When deciding if a nose job is right for you, it's important to determine what it is about your nose that you don't like or feel disrupts the balance of your face. Some examples of what can be changed through rhinoplasty include:
Bridge of a deviated nose or nostrils
Big hump on the bridge
A deep radix that gives the appearance of a large hump
A large or bulbous tip or a tip that is at an acute angle
The Gunk on Top
Nose too prominent or too small
Additionally, if you have trouble breathing through your nose or glasses that never lie comfortably on your face, rhinoplasty can help correct this problem
STAGES OF RHINOPLASTY
Rhinoplasty consists of three parts: consultation, procedure and recovery period. If you're interested in whether rhinoplasty is right for you, it's helpful to consider what the entire process involves.
At this stage you will speak to your plastic surgeon , to determine if surgery is right for you and to clarify what you hope to achieve. This is also a chance to get to know your doctor and make sure he or she is the right specialist for you.
Rhinoplasty should be customized to fit your face. The shape of your face, the position of your chin and the width of your eyes, cheeks and forehead determine what type of nose will best fit your face. A good and experienced plastic surgeon will work with you to develop a plan that is tailored specifically to your desires and expectations.
Your plastic surgeon will go over your medical history, perform all relevant tests and examinations, and talk with you about what you want. The specialist will assess the overall harmony of your face and work with you to understand what is right for your features. You will also learn what to expect during the recovery phase after surgery.
First you will be anaesthetised. The surgery itself will involve changing the cartilage and bone under the skin of the nose. If you have a deviated septum, it will be straightened.
Once the procedure is complete, professional medical staff will be with you as you wake up from the anesthesia. You will be reminded what to do (and what not to do) during your recovery. You will be discharged from the hospital the same day.
The next day, you will probably feel your nose as stuffy, but you should not experience severe pain. It's best to rest as much as possible at first and avoid touching your nose.
Slowly, you will be able to return to normal life in just a few weeks. Full recovery from rhinoplasty often takes up to a full year.
Do not rush to speed up the recovery process. The best advice is to always be careful and patient. Do not strain yourself unnecessarily, especially during the first week after surgery.
All forms of surgery, cosmetic or otherwise, involve some risk of complications. In nasal surgery in particular, problems may become apparent when the swelling goes down.
Let's get back to the main question: should you get a nose job?
This is a great question and only you can answer it. If you've been asking yourself for a while, maybe now is the time to continue exploring the possibilities. Your next step should be a consultation with a board certified and experienced rhinoplasty surgeon. A consultation can help you decide if rhinoplasty is right for you, as well as determine the possible outcome.
Think about the harmony of your face. Is the relationship of your nose and the rest of your face harmonious? Do you want to accentuate your other attractive features, such as your eyes and your smile? Rhinoplasty can simply reshape your nose, but it can often transform your entire face.
