Rhinoplasty Guide

Why a Rhinoplasty? Though many people don’t know it, nose jobs are more common than ever, and they’re a particularly popular choice among adolescents.

Among adults, rhinoplasty procedures are not far behind breast augmentations as a popular procedure.

What Attracts People to Rhinoplasties?

Most cosmetic treatments deal with one of two subjects: aging, or symmetry. While it’s obvious why someone would use Botox or dermal Fillers to reduce the signs of aging, such as wrinkles, the improvement of symmetry may not be as clear.

Many would suggest that it comes down to mathematics, genetics, and evolutionary instincts. Ratios, such as having eyes a certain distance from each other, suggest good health and good genetics that we’re instinctively drawn to.

Of course, for many individuals, it can be simplified down to that they don’t like the shape of their nose or find it too big. Individuals might try to reduce the size, make it less crooked, or change the ship of the tip of the nose to be less pointy, less drooping, or the bridge to be less bumpy.

Some individuals might also suffer from a deviated septum, which leads to breathing issues. In this case, these individuals are trying to correct a medical instead of a cosmetic problem.

There are, at any rate, any number of reasons individuals might want to get their nose corrected.

What’s so Special About Rhinoplasties

Any individual interested in a rhinoplasty should take care: they are one of the most complex cosmetic surgeries that can be performed. Physicians who perform rhinoplasties don’t just need to know the anatomy of the nose, but they must make use of specialized techniques to perform the surgery.

The difficulty of the procedure is attested to by the fact that doctors refer to primary and secondary rhinoplasties–simply, the first time a procedure corrects the nose, and a second procedure that might occur if more correction is necessary. five-to-20 percent of all rhinoplasties are flawed.

The secondary rhinoplasty is also more difficult than the first, because it must work around scar tissue from the first surgery. Secondary rhinoplasties sometimes require grafts from the nasal septum to rebuild the nose.

Other Types of Rhinoplasties

One other form of rhinoplasty is simply referred to as the ethnic rhinoplasty. Because “naturalness” is such a strong draw in cosmetic surgery, physicians will often advise patients to try and preserve unique characteristics of their facial structure that, ultimately, can be a large part of their attractiveness.

This includes traits specific to certain ethnicities that require a more individualized approach.

Aging rhinoplasties correct basic nose changes that occur with aging. This includes thickening of the skin and drooping and stretching of the tip.

Aging rhinoplasties tend to be easier procedures to perform, as dramatic improvements in the aesthetics of the nose can be made with fairly modest corrections–simply surgery performed in the tip of the nose without breaking any nasal bones. Recovery is astoundingly face, usually finished within a week.

Meanwhile a septoplasty is a rhinoplasty that also corrects a deviated septum. Your septum runs down the center of your nose, ideally, but when it doesn’t it can lead to breathing issues. A septoplasty straightens your septum, putting it into the certain of your nose.

Am I a Good Candidate for Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasties are particularly popular among adolescents, but all individuals who undergo rhinoplasty should be at least 15–owing to the necessity of the nose to finish developing.

Patients should be assessed for being in both good physical and mental health. They should have realistic expectations for the procedure and what it can do for them.
