Checking out your reflection one time in front of a full length mirror gave you an idea that your nose is somewhat askew, you thought that maybe you’d look better if you could have a new nose. Getting a nose job might have crossed your mind several times now but you were too young to get one before, but now that you have your own job, you can pay for the procedure. You don’t have any sort of breathing problem; you just wanted to look good, you wanted to boost your self-confidence and altogether increase your self-esteem. Clearly, you don’t have any idea what rhinoplasty is all about, you just have inkling that once the procedure is done, you’ll look better. In order to help you with your problem, here’s some general information that might give you a clear idea on what this cosmetic surgery procedure is all about.
Rhinoplasty is a very common cosmetic procedure that aims to enhance the appearance of the nose to make it more symmetrical to a patient’s face. The procedure can turn up, thin, shorten, augment, lengthen and altogether change the shape of the nose. This procedure is more known in its moniker ‘nose lift’. It also involves rasping the bones around the nose to eradicate the presence of a bump, resect a cartilage to change its projection, trim the cartilage in order to make it smaller and more defined.
Most nose job procedures are done once the patient face matures usually between 16 to 17 years old in females and later on in males. This surgery is sometimes combined with other cosmetic procedures such as chin augmentation in order to balance the look of both the chin and the nose. This is done to avoid problems that can occur in one and the other.
People usually consider getting a nose job because they dislike the appearance of their nose. It is due to this disappointment that some seek medical help. Remember that rhinoplasty is only a cosmetic procedure, there are certain limitations and it will not lead you to perfection but only the needed improvement to enhance your features. Talk about your expectations with your surgeon so you don’t get to be disappointed later on after the surgery.
Some of the common complaints of individuals who wish to undergo nose lift surgery include having a too flat, convex profile, large bump, too wide/fat or too thin nose.
