Your nose is the focal point of your face. It provides symmetry and helps enhance your face’s attractive features. Unfortunately, the nose you were born with might not be the right one. Additionally, medical problems and accidental injury can alter the shape and appearance of your nose. Luckily, rhinoplasty, or nose job, is a safe and effective plastic surgery solution. It should be performed for the following five reasons:

Improve Cosmetic Appearance

Your nose is one of the first things people notice when they look at you. It comes in many shapes and sizes, and is never perfect. Cosmetically, the most important thing about your nose is that fits your face. If your nose is abnormally large, crooked, bent, or rounded, it can detract attention from the beautiful features of your face.

Your nose and face’s cosmetic appearance can be enhanced by rhinoplasty. The procedure involves shaving and re-sculpting the cartilage and bone of the nose. It’s done under generally anesthesia and doesn’t require an overnight hospital stay. Some results will be seen in as little as 2-3 weeks. Maximum results will be seen in 6-12 months. The end result will always be a naturally shaped nose that adds symmetry and attractiveness your face.

Revision Surgery

If you’ve had poor results from a rhinoplasty procedure, a revision can be done to achieve the results you want and deserve. The procedure is performed in a similar manner to traditional rhinoplasty, but with a few revisions or corrections. Results are always better than those from previous surgery.

Damage due to Accident

Accidents happen. If you’ve broken your nose due to a face planting injury or car accident, a rhinoplasty procedure might be needed. The procedure is relatively simple—the nose is straightened by putting its broken pieces back together. Little to no complications occur and downtime is minimal.

Chronic Sinus Problems

Rhinoplasty due to chronic sinus problems is called septoplasty. It’s done to improve breathing through the nose. A deviated septum is a common reason to have a septoplasty performed. If breathing is a problem for you, septoplasty might be the solution you’re looking for.

Low Self Esteem due to a Physical Deformity

As earlier stated, the nose you were born with might not be the right one. This is especially the case if you’ve been born with a physical deformity. Low self esteem is almost always seen in patients with physical deformities. If you find yourself suffering, a rhinoplasty might be a way to ease your pain. You should take caution in this area. Always discuss your unique, individual experience with a board certified plastic surgeon who specialized in facial procedures.



The above mentioned five reasons to have rhinoplasty can help you determine if rhinoplasty is right for you. Use the information in this post and the opinion of a trusted plastic surgeon to get the results you want and deserve. Remember that no nose is perfect, but the nose you were born with can certainly be improved. When you’re ready, feel free to contact our office to arrange a consultation.
