When it comes to facial symmetry, your nose is one of the most visible features that can impact your appearance. If you’re unhappy with the shape of your nose, a rhinoplasty can correct the issues you have, restore symmetry and improve the overall aesthetics of your profile. Educating yourself about the possible outcomes will allow you to make the best possible decision and form realistic expectations.
What Can a Rhinoplasty Do for Me?
If you follow the media or are a fan of celebrities, you may be under the impression that the ultra-fine, ‘standard’ nose is your only option. Surgeons have the ability to use your existing structure and work with your personal goals in mind. Cosmetically, you aren’t limited to a narrow, small nose.
Aside from aesthetics, a rhinoplasty can also fix other problems with your nose. If you have a deviated septum, you may experience snoring or snorting while you sleep. If you snore or have a tendency to sleep with your mouth open to breathe easily, a rhinoplasty may be able to fix that issue and give you deeper, more restful sleep.
A rhinoplasty also can widen the nasal passages and make it easier to breathe through your nose while exercising. Swimmers, weight lifters, runners and other athletic types may note that breathing through the mouth can lead to gulping, gasping or even aspirating water and sweat. Breathing easily through your nose can help take your workout to the next level.
The Effects on Your Profile
The changes to your appearance are not just about aesthetics, for most patients. Most people also note higher self-confidence and self-esteem. Your confidence has an impact on your personal, professional and intimate lives. Whether you want to launch a business, meet with new clients or even ask out someone you’ve had your eye on, improved self-esteem can help you meet your goals.
What Should I Expect?
Having realistic expectations is essential when it comes to surgery. Rhinoplasty can make a subtle or appreciable difference to your look, depending on your goals. However, it’s important to remember that no one else will be as critical of your appearance as you are.
A rhinoplasty can be a great procedure for enhancing your profile. By having realistic expectations and being aware of your own personal motivations for surgery, you can ensure an informed decision for yourself.
