Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure pursued by patients who wish to alter the size and shape of their noses. While this surgery can be performed independently of other procedures, many cosmetic surgery patients opt to have rhinoplasty administered in conjunction with other treatments, like a facelift or liposuction.
Reasons for pursuing rhinoplasty will vary, but here are some common scenarios where patients seek help from a cosmetic surgeon:
- Aesthetic Reasons Many rhinoplasty patients consider treatment because they are dissatisfied with the shape and contour of their noses. Some have a bump at the nose’s bridge, some may want to alter the shape of the nose tip, while others prefer a shorter nose length. Some patients are embarrassed or self-conscious about their appearance, and would emotionally and psychologically benefit from this cosmetic procedure. Others may be seeking treatment to satisfy the requirements of their professional life as actresses, models, and those whose livelihoods depend on physical appearance. Many men and women are dissatisfied with their profiles from an early age, so few hesitate to achieve the look and confidence they always wanted.
- Medical Reasons Some cosmetic surgery patients will invest in a rhinoplasty due to medical issues caused by the shape and size of their nose. Some patients may have trouble breathing or speaking properly, suffer from chronic rhinitis or sinus infections, or are otherwise physically uncomfortable because of their noses. These issues may be caused by defects present at birth, or by facial trauma caused by sports activities or car accidents.
