Make the Changes to Your Nose That You’ve Always Wished For with Rhinoplasty
Recurring scientific studies have shown that when you notice someone, you first look at their eyes, then track down to their nose and mouth. These primary areas of focus leave a favorable and lasting impression on people if they find these features to be attractive.
The nose is in the very center of your face, and as a result, it naturally draws attention to itself. If it’s too big, it dominates your face and steals focus from other features in a way that can be quite negative. If it’s too small, other features around it can look overpowering, affecting the aesthetic balance of the face.
Very few people are born with the perfect nose. However, enhancements can be made to the nose with the help of a surgical procedure known as rhinoplasty. Placing such significance on one’s looks might seem shallow or superficial, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to be appreciated for the way you look.
Having a better-looking nose can boost a person’s self-confidence and their outlook towards life and other people in general. It can also be a major ego boost to feel desired and admired, whereas it never feels good to be ignored, side-stepped, or overlooked.
Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic treatment undertaken to improve the shape and appearance of the nose. It can also be a functional procedure used to address issues that make breathing difficult.
There are many cosmetic changes that can be made to your nose with rhinoplasty, including the following alterations:
• You can reshape and straighten a crooked nose.
• You can make your nose smaller/bigger.
• You can give a bulbous nasal tip more definition or add volume to an overly sharp nasal tip.
• You can correct the size of your nostrils if they are too large or small.
• You can get a nasal hump removed.
• You can raise a drooping columella (the area of skin between the nostrils).
• Rhinoplasty can be used to address nasal injuries. Nasal reconstruction may be necessary if you’ve experienced events like a broken nose.
• The rhinoplasty procedure can correct congenital defects.
• Respiratory problems that affect airflow and overall quality of life can be solved with this treatment.
• Septoplasty is a type of rhinoplasty used to correct a deviated septum.
The Procedure and What to Expect
At the start of your rhinoplasty procedure, either general anesthesia or local anesthesia with intravenous sedation will be administered. This is done to ensure that the patient does not feel pain or discomfort during surgery.
One or more incisions will then be made in the nose, allowing the surgeon access to the underlying tissues of the nose. Alteration of the soft tissue, cartilage, and bone can take place through these incisions. Tissue grafts may be used to strengthen areas of the nose.
Once the alterations have taken place, the incisions will be closed with the help of medical sutures. Various dressings will be used to protect the nose for the healing process that occurs over the next several weeks.
