With its dead center location on your face, your nose plays a key role in your appearance and wellness. When you are less than happy with the way it looks or functions, you may consider having it surgically altered. You can decide if this procedure is right for you by learning more about the most common reasons for a nose job.
One of the most prevalent reasons that people undergo a nose job, also called rhinoplasty, involves improving the way that they look. Cosmetic nose jobs are commonly done to:
- Change the size
- Adjust the angle
- Alter the width of the bridge
- Change the shape of the tip
- Adjust the nostril size
Cosmetic rhinoplasty can drastically change the way that you look and improve your self-esteem. It is also a relatively simple procedure that does not typically require a lengthy recovery period.
Deviated Septum Repair
A deviated septum in your nose can lead to a host of painful health complications that can only be remedied by rhinoplasty. When your septum deviates to either side, you may suffer from chronic sinus infections, coughs, migraines, and bad breath. Over-the-counter and prescription medications only provide temporary relief for these conditions.
Rather than suffer needlessly with them, you may find complete relief by undergoing a nose job to correct your deviated septum. Our surgeon will straighten the septum so that you breathe easier and experience relief from sinus and migraine pain.
Reconstruction After an Injury or Accident
When you have been involved in an accident or suffered an injury to your nose, you may need to have it surgically repaired. Reconstructions account for a large portion of nose jobs performed in the U.S. each year. The extent of your surgery will depend on the type of damage that your nose sustained. Your recovery time will likewise depend on the severity of your injury and the type of surgery that you have undergone to rebuild your nose.
People who are chronically congested may suffer from nasal issues like blocked or pinched sinuses. No over-the-counter or prescription medication can remedy these conditions. Sufferers must undergo surgery to open the sinuses and allow for better breathing. This type of rhinoplasty may involve removing tissue from within your sinuses. After the procedure, you should be able to breathe better.
