There are a number of reasons to consider rhinoplasty surgery, not all of which have to do with enhancing your appearance, but certainly, building self-confidence can be life-changing. Rhinoplasty, more commonly known as a “nose job,” can be performed to help modify the shape, size, or even function of your nose. More than 223,000 nose reshaping surgeries were performed in 2016, making it the third most popular plastic surgery procedure in the U.S.
Whether you’ve decided you want to move forward with having a nose job, or you’re still unsure about the procedure, there are specific benefits to rhinoplasty surgery.
Electing a surgical method to change your appearance or improve your health can come with questions. One of the most common questions about rhinoplasty is concerning the pain and healing process. While any invasive surgery will come with some discomfort during the healing process, most rhinoplasty patients will have some swelling and tenderness but should experience minimal difficulty breathing. Discoloration is possible, but the majority of patients begin to see the results of the surgery within just a few days. In fact, you’ll likely be able to return to work within a week.
Keep in mind that rhinoplasty is not like a haircut. Your procedure is customized to your needs and your face, so bringing in a photo of a celebrity profile and requesting a nose like the one pictured may not work. Your surgeon will create symmetry and balance during the procedure, and what looks appealing on one person isn’t always a great fit for another.
Despite the stigma, some may place on plastic surgery, the decision to get a nose job should be your personal decision. Make an informed choice by partnering with Mangat Plastic Surgery for a consultation to learn how rhinoplasty can help you.
