Rhinoplasty, sometimes called a nose job, is among the most common aesthetic surgeries available.
Its popularity is due partially to the practical applications of the procedure, such as correcting a deviated septum that can cause breathing issues and an irritating, whistling snore.
The other reasons the procedure is so popular have to do with the wide range of cosmetic issues rhinoplasty can correct.
Broken Nose Resetting
Whether it was the result of a sports injury or a schoolyard scuffle, breaking your nose is usually not disfiguring. However, if it’s not set properly, a broken nose can leave you with a bump on the bridge or a nose that leans to one side of your face.
Rhinoplasty can deal with the old fracture and set it straight on your face again. If there’s a bump, it can be removed entirely at the same time.
Birth defects such as a cleft palate can cause mismatched nostrils. People who were born prematurely and had a nasogastric tube inserted in one nostril may also still see the evidence in adulthood. Rhinoplasty can correct this and bring symmetry to the nostrils.
Narrowing the Nose
Some individuals may have wide noses. Rhinoplasty can bring the sides of the nose in, making it more narrow.
Refining the Tip of the Nose
If the tip of your nose is pointy, bulbous or too square, the cartilage inside can be reshaped to give it a more pleasing contour. This is an extremely common issue that patients often feel improve their looks the most and makes the most impact on their overall appearance.
Changing the Bridge of the Nose
For some people, the bridge of the nose has a dip in it that can make the eyes look too close together. For others, the bridge is too wide and doesn’t fit with the rest of their features. Regardless of the issue, rhinoplasty can increase or decrease the bridge’s width and create facial harmony.
