Correcting a Misshapen Nose with Rhinoplasty
Everyone has aspects of their appearance they love, and then there are parts of their face that they wish they could change. For many people, their nose is one aspect of their face they wish that they could fix. If their nose is crooked, if it is too large, or if it is otherwise misshapen, rhinoplasty may be the solution they have been waiting for.
Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular procedures in the United States. In 2013, more than 200,000 people had the procedure done. Rhinoplasty involves the surgeon molding the cartilage and bone in a person’s nose to give them a nose that is symmetrical and that fits with the rest of their facial features.
Rhinoplasty is safe and has been tested for decades. When it is performed by a skilled surgeon, it will provide unbelievable results with no scarring.
When a person has a nose that is too big or that is off-center, it disrupts the entire balance of their face. As a result, a person can feel self-conscious. It is not uncommon for people with a misshapen nose to try to hide it.
Rhinoplasty not only fixes structural defects, but it can also fix the defects that cause people to have breathing problems.
To be a candidate for rhinoplasty, you would first need to be dissatisfied with the appearance of your nose and want to do something about it.
A small group of rhinoplasty patients find it difficult to breathe and want to have corrections to fix structural abnormalities. The best candidates for rhinoplasty are those who are in good health and know the risks connected to the surgery. They will walk into the surgery with realistic expectations for what the results will be.
Rhinoplasty can fix a nose that is too large or too small, make a wide nose narrower, correct a nasal tip that either protrudes or droops, correct a bulbous tip, correct a broken nose to make it symmetrical, and address breathing problems, such as a deviated septum.
As with any surgery, it is important that the individual who is getting a procedure done does so not as a result of peer pressure, but instead because they want to make the adjustments to their appearance.
Rhinoplasty, as well as any other surgery options, will have the best results if the patient goes into the surgery with specific goals. When rhinoplasty is done for the right reasons and under the watchful eye of an experienced surgeon, it is an effective way to help a person improve their appearance and regain their self-confidence.
