What Exactly is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is essentially a nose job and surgical procedure that can fix any structural deformity of the nose. These kinds of surgeries are usually done on those with medical issues and those who do not like the appearance of their nose. The common kinds of medically motivated procedures are due to those who have a difficult time breathing through their nose. This difficulty is usually due to the septum, the wall between the two nostrils, being off-center, and slightly more shifted to one side. Not only are these breathing problems scary for some, but they can be quite a nuisance in day-to-day life. When it comes to appearance-based surgeries the process is a little bit different. Any part of the nose the person does not like can essentially be worked on to help them achieve the look they want.
Should I Get the Surgery?
This surgery is commonly an elective one that most people do not need to get done; however, it remains to be one of the most common procedures. We tell all of our patients who come in for their consultation that if they cannot breathe well through their nose or have felt insecure about their nose for a long time then they are a good candidate for the surgery. This kind of surgery is relatively safe and has the power to make those who dislike their nose confident in their skin, something that is truly priceless.
Are There Any Risks?
With any surgery comes some risks. While most people see a full recovery from rhinoplasty, there are still always going to be outliers. The best way to avoid any issues from occurring during and after the surgery is to choose a surgeon that you can trust. Going to a surgeon abroad for a $100 nose job is not going to give you the results you want and may even end up with you being seriously injured. This is why it is so important to do your research beforehand, have a consultation with the surgeon to discuss all of your questions and concerns, and read up on the risks beforehand. Some of the common risks are infection, bleeding, breathing issues, and the need for an additional touch up surgeries. You may also find yourself with septal perforation, which is a small hole in the septum. Some of the rarer but still possible risks are anesthesia complications and death. Something also important to note is that you may not be happy with the results. This could be because of the surgeon not being reputable or just simply because you do not like the new shape. To try and prevent this result we recommend bringing in photos of nose shapes you like.
