Plastic surgery has become incredibly common in our society, not just here in North America but all over the world as well. All kinds of procedures are performed because there is a need to look and feel good but sometimes, it could also be due to some kind of a problem.
One common procedure performed on both women and men is rhinoplasty, commonly called a nose job. Again, the reasons why people get nose jobs may vary, including serious medical problems.
Let’s take a closer look at why do people get nose jobs:
1. Nose Jobs Improve External Appearance
Why do people get nose jobs? One of the main (and most common) reasons is because people just want their noses to look better. You cannot blame someone for wanting to improve the external appearance of their nose, especially if they feel there is a problem. Some people may have something known as a dorsal hump which is a slight bump. Such aesthetic deformities may have troubled someone in the past and perhaps they got teased a lot. Now, they may have saved up and have decided to finally do something about it.
2. Nose Jobs Improve Breathing
Some people may have problems breathing because of a medical issue. Sometimes, they could have a problem with one nostril while others may have trouble with both nostrils. They may have had discomfort in breathing and to be honest, something like this can really get you down, especially if you’ve suffered for years. A deformity can develop while someone is growing up, but it is also possible that it was there from birth.
Many people who go for rhinoplasty have a deviated septum. This is when the bone and cartilage that separate the nostrils is not in the middle but goes off to one side. Many people actually have it, but it is more subtle. For those where it is quite pronounced, it can cause breathing problems and cause other issues as well.
3. Facial Injuries
Sometimes, a person may get facial damage either from an accident such as falling off a bike or getting hit in the face. A significant injury may warrant a nose job to repair the area so that normal breathing and functionality is resumed. The plastic surgery performed is not only for aesthetic purposes but nasal fractures or broken noses will need to have an asymmetry to be corrected because injuries of this nature can cause breathing problems.
4. Sinus Problems
Sometimes, a rhinoplasty can help someone with sinus problems, especially if there is some kind of anatomical anomaly. This does not mean that anyone who has sinus problems should rush off and get a nose job. If there is some nasal obstruction and sinusitis, a rhinoplasty can help to improve function. So, for example, if you have a deviated septum and also suffer from sinus problems, there’s a good chance that a nose job can help with the sinus problems.
Feeling good and confident is important to many people. Improving self-esteem is one of the most common reasons why people choose to have a nose job. People do judge us on how we look. They may also have cruel nicknames for someone, either in front of them or behind their back. Putting an end to it and finally feeling great will be so liberating, so many go for that rhinoplasty that will change their life for the better.
Make sure to understand everything about the procedure and find a good plastic surgeon to take you through everything. Ask lots of questions so that you can go in feeling confident as you look forward to the new and improved you.
