What are Three Reasons Seek Rhinoplasty?
Three Reasons People Seek Rhinoplasty
Per the 2012 report released by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), rhinoplasty is the fifth most common surgical procedure performed by plastic surgeons, and it’s the second most popular surgery among men. During 2012, ASAPS member doctors performed more than 143,000 nose jobs. Here are three popular reasons why people seek rhinoplasty.
Trauma to the Nose
Traumatic events like a fight, participation in group sports, and car accidents can damage the nose. A broken nose may appear crooked, have an asymmetric tip, or develop a ridge or bump. A broken nose may also lead to complications that include a hole in the nasal septum or the collapse of the bridge of the nose which can lead to breathing problems. A rhinoplasty specialist reshapes the nose to address imperfections and breathing problems caused by the trauma.
Nose Size is Unappealing
Many people dislike the size of their nose. You might feel it’s too large, too wide, too short, or has a large hump on the bridge. Rhinoplasty doctors work with you to create a nose you’re proud of without setting unrealistic ideals. The goal of a nose job is not to radically alter your nose. Instead, the doctor strives to create a natural appearance.
On some people, the tip of the nose droops down, is too bulbous, or isn’t well-defined. Rhinoplasty corrects each of these issues. By using suture techniques to bring cartilage together, the doctor can elevate the nasal tip or refine a bulbous tip, sometimes while eliminating the need to cut into the tissue. Your doctor will discuss the best techniques for your needs prior to the surgery.
