Rhinoplasty, also referred to as nose job is among the top five most popular cosmetic surgery procedures performed in the US and across the world each year. In 2013 alone, more than 200,000 people had their noses done in America and now enjoy life to the fullest. Whether it is to correct structural issues that cause breathing problems, repair damage from an injury or accident, or reshape the nose your genes designed for you, the truth is that hundreds of thousands of patients turn to rhinoplasty annually. But, what makes all these people want to have a nose job? Below are just 8 of the benefits you could have with a successful rhinoplasty.
1. Enhancement of Your Facial Features
Repeated research has shown that a well-done rhinoplasty helps restore facial balance, providing a lovely enhancement to the features of the face. A rhinoplasty can correct a bulbous tip or crooked nose and restore facial symmetry.
2. Stop or Reduce Snoring
It has been evidenced that almost 1 in 4 couples sleeps in separate bedrooms because one of the partner’s loud snoring that makes sleeping in the same bed rather uncomfortable for the partner that does not snore. Such sleep problems, among others, can be reduced significantly (even completely stop) with a rhinoplasty.
3. Boost Confidence
Scientific studies have also revealed that the first thing you notice when you look at someone is their eyes and the very next is the nose, followed by the mouth. If these primary areas of focus are attractive, the overall first impression is indeed favorable.
Many of our patients at Cosmetic Surgery Cyprus also believe that their nose surgery has improved their careers and contributed to their success at work. Maybe this is because with a well-done nose they feel more confident. And, admittedly, confident people are not difficult to spot as they exude confidence. Others wish for a rhinoplasty by the expert hands of Dr. Bugra to look younger and more attractive to attract the opposite sex.
4. Improve Breathing Problems
Thousands of people suffer from airway obstruction. You can identify these issues if you breathe mainly through your mouth, especially at night, have nasal congestion, dry mouth or your sense of smell has somewhat been reduced. Some side effects of nose obstructions include headaches caused by sinus pressure, recurrent sinus infections, nosebleeds, sleep disturbances or Eustachian tube dysfunction. If you leave this condition untreated, it could lead to much more serious problems including obstructive sleep apnea, hypertension, insomnia, and even heart disease. A rhinoplasty will help fix nasal obstructions and improve nasal breathing remarkably.
5. Improve Sinus Problems
It is possible to combine a sinus surgery with a rhinoplasty to fix chronic sinusitis (inflamed sinuses) and, of course, breathing problems. A problem with the nose, such as an infection that makes the mucus drain into the nose can be the cause of that. If the nose gets too swollen, the sinuses can be blocked and cause pain.
6. Correct Birth Defects
Some people are born with a seriously mis-shapen nose or other congenital deformities of the nose that are traumatic to them. A rhinoplasty will reshape their nose and give them an improved appearance.
7. Fix a Broken Nose
Many athletes and people who practice sporting activities have their noses broken during play. Another common cause of a nasal fractures nose is accidents, fights, and falls. Besides breaking the bones of the nose, you may also injure the nose cartilage, this trauma to the nose can cause shifting or cracking of the wall dividing the inside of the nose (septum) and other problems. When this happens, your airflow will be restricted on either one or both sides of the nose, making a rhinoplasty an imperative to improve the deformities of the broken nose and restore your air flow.
After any injury, the internal lining of the nose swells, which is what makes the nose become stuffy. In this case, you need a detailed nasal exam to determine whether your septum has deviated or not. Dr Bugra can provide this assessment via photographs. If it has deviated, asking for a rhinoplasty will help straighten the septum and fix the nasal fracture at the same time.
8. Fix a Botched Nose
As many as one in five nose cosmetic surgeries leave patients unhappy with the result. If you trust your body to inexperienced hands and medical professionals that have no training in plastic surgery, chances are you will end up depressed with the outcome. This is where Revision Rhinoplasty comes in and corrects previous unsuccessful nose jobs. Just make sure you find an esteemed, accredited, and widely reputed cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Bugra, this time though! Dr Bugra is often asked to perform Revision Rhinoplasty on patients who have previously been disappointed by the work of another surgeon.
Are you a Good Candidate ?
Most of the patients that come at the Cosmetic Surgery Cyprus and undergo nose reshaping surgery usually want to improve the appearance of their nose and proportions of their facial features. Others come because of the discomfort they feel when breathing or due to other structural abnormalities of their nose, or have previous nose injuries that have left their mark.
If you are in good health and have realistic expectations in regards the results of the surgery, then you are considered an optimal candidate. Other than that, a rhinoplasty is an excellent option for those that have:
- A nose that’s either too small or too large compared to other facial features.
- A bulbous tip
- A wide nose
- A bump on the bridge
- Excessively pinched or flared nostrils
- An off-centered or crooked nose
- An asymmetrical nose after an injury
- Breathing problems that are caused by a deviated septum or other irregularities of the nose’s internal structure.
- An enlarged or protruded nasal tip.
- A droopy nose.
Is it Safe for Teenagers ?
Although rhinoplasty is a very popular cosmetic surgery procedure amongst teens, we do not perform the procedure on boys under the age of 18 or girls younger than 17 1/2 years of age. The surgeon and the 17 ½ year old female teenager’s parents will consider whether a rhinoplasty is an appropriate cosmetic surgery option for the teen.
What Can you Expect from a Rhinoplasty
It can be used to modify the size, shape, and overall appearance of the nose. To balance out the facial features of a patient more completely, the surgeon might recommend to transfer fat to the chin at the same time if the patient is concerned about the definition of the chin. Many of our patients come to the clinic and ask for their bridge to be narrowed or want to narrow or widen their nostrils while others want us to straighten the nose. Finally, there is a number of patients that wish for a reshaped tip of the nose and to change the angle between their upper lips and nose.
In the majority of cases, all incisions are hidden inside the nose, so there is minimal scarring. However, it is crucial you fully understand all of the treatment options and possible outcomes, given that the nose is a focal point of the face, and Dr Bugra can help you to understand the possible outcome by working on a side profile photo of your nose to show you the results that he can achieve.
To determine whether or not you are a good candidate for a nose job, all we need are 3 photos, one from the front and one from each side, and to understand your particular concerns, so that Dr. Bugra, can make his recommendations. We also need to understand your medical history, and to assess your mental preparedness for the treatment. Of course if you are in Cyprus we can arrange a face to face consultation for you with Dr Bugra as the first step in the process.
