Rhinoplasty, the medical term for nose surgery, continues to rank as one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the United States – and the reasons why are obvious. By removing, altering, or adding bone and/or cartilage to the nose, doctors today can reconstruct and shape the nose however you’d like.
I mean, just take a look at some of the incredible cosmetic benefits of Rhinoplasty in Royal Oak, MI:
- Reduce the size of the nose
- Straighten a crooked nose
- Adjust the width of the bridge
- Alter the size or shape of the nostrils
- Modify a nasal tip that is bulbous, drooping, upturned, or hooked
- Reshape a flat nose
- Smoothen bumps or humps in the bridge
DID YOU KNOW? The word rhinoplasty comes from the Greek words rhino (which means ‘nose’) and plasty (which means ‘shaping’). With that said, ‘rhinoplasty’ quite literally translates to ‘nose shaping.’
With that said, we often spend so much time glorifying the cosmetic benefits of rhinoplasty, that we tend to overlook (and sometimes dismiss) the many medical and health benefits of rhinoplasty – which are just as much of an incentive to undergo the procedure. It’s no wonder why so many patients are interested.
If you’re one of those patients and want to learn more about some of the hidden benefits of nose surgery, you have come to the right place. Follow along to see how rhinoplasty can change your life for the better.
5. Finally, a Breath of Fresh Air
One of the most important functions of the nose is to act as a pathway for air to enter the lungs – it’s how we breathe and, more specifically, how we filter the air we breathe. What many people don’t understand is that the shape of your nose could actually be restricting your airways and making it harder to breathe.
This is often the case with a deviated septum (crooked or off-center nasal septum). By reshaping and correcting the bone and cartilage in the nose, you can significantly improve your breathing – allowing you to take your first true breath of fresh air in a long time. You’ll never take a breath for granted ever again!
4. Real-Life Sleeping Beauty
Obstructed airways (such as the nose) and poor breathing habits are two of the most common culprits of snoring. As the airways become more and more narrow, the snoring becomes more and more loud – which can prevent you and/or your partner from getting a quality, restorative, and revitalizing night’s rest.
As we explained above, rhinoplasty helps to restore adequate airflow through the nostrils and nasal cavities. This, in turn, improves breathing and increases your chances of getting a good night’s sleep – which is essential to the body's everyday function and long-term health. It’s a win-win scenario!
3. Sinus Relief When You Need It Most
Not only do obstructed airways make it difficult to sleep properly, but they can prevent the sinus cavity from draining correctly – often resulting in blocked airways, a stuffy nose, increased pressure in the cavity, pain, headaches, and chronic infections. These sinus issues make it hard to live a happy and normal life.
That’s where rhinoplasty comes in to save the day. By addressing any asymmetries or abnormalities with the nasal septum, your surgeon can ensure your sinus cavities are draining properly – relieving you of any pain, discomfort, or frustration. You’ll still get the sniffles when you’re sick, but that’s to be expected.
2. Much-Needed Confidence Boost
If you were to ask 1,000 people which of their body parts they hate the most, you’d be surprised at how many people would say ‘nose’ as their answer. It’s one of the few body parts most people would change if they could and is a primary reason why so many people feel self-conscious about their facial appearance.
Don’t worry – you’re not alone, and you’re not without hope. Rhinoplasty can help you reconstruct and reshape your nose to better represent the nose you’ve always imagined for yourself. Instead of making you feel self-conscious, your nose will be a source of self-confidence, self-assurance, and self-love.
1. A Corrective Surgery By Design
A lot of people want to correct the shape of their nose for cosmetic, aesthetic, or personal reasons – which is completely fine! With that said, let’s not forget that there are also medical reasons why we might need to alter the shape or structure of the nose – especially if it can help treat another disease or illness.
Here are some of the medical conditions rhinoplasty can help correct:
- Broken nose
- Cleft Palate or Cleft Lip
- Deformities and birth defects
- Nose injury or trauma to the nose
- Sleep apnea
- Sinus infections
Not only that, but some patients undergo rhinoplasty to correct, fix, or improve a rhinoplasty procedure they underwent in the past. This ensures the patient can achieve their desired nose appearance, even as they age or as their facial features change. From your 20s to your 60s, rhinoplasty is always here to help!
