Undesired nasal bumps, a disproportionate size, or a crooked nose can cause many people to feel discontent with their facial features.
A previous injury can leave your nose unbalanced, or you may have a nasal obtrusion such as a deviated septum.
Many patients feel that the nose they were born with does not reflect their desired appearance.
Nose enhancement surgery, or rhinoplasty, can balance the face by reducing the size or changing the shape of your nose.
What Is a Deviated Septum?
When the cartilage that separates your two nasal passages is crooked or bent, it can cause breathing concerns.
Septoplasty is a nasal surgery often combines with rhinoplasty surgery that is designed to rearrange the cartilage between the two nostrils.
A deviated septum can develop from your natural nasal structure or because of an injury.
What Are the Benefits of Rhinoplasty?
Here are 5 benefits to nose surgery:
- Balance the facial features by decreasing the size of a large nose and nostrils
- Change the overall nasal shape by removing a hump
- Correct a deviated septum through septoplasty to alleviate discomfort and obstructed breathing. This surgery can also improve sleep apnea in some cases
- Improve breathing by shifting the nasal structure
- Reduce the nasal tip for a smaller profile or button nose.
Is Rhinoplasty Worth It?
As with any surgical procedure, there are considerations to take into account when you decide to undergo rhinoplasty.
Your concerns, preferences, and medical history are all discussed during your consultation with your surgeon, along with any risks involved with your procedure.
Many patients find their results satisfying after rhinoplasty. Both the function and appearance of their reshaped nose can be enhanced while still maintaining any ethnic characteristic.
