Rhinoplasty is a popular facial procedure used to reshape the nose and rebuild the nasal structure to resolve both cosmetic or functional issues.
Every year, close to 220,000 men, women and children opt for rhinoplasties in America to solve concerns, making it the most common facial plastic surgery procedure of all according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Our plastic surgery center in Tampa Bay, Florida oversees hundreds of rhinoplasty procedures every year, and our expert surgeon, Dr. Egozi, can provide superior insight into all things rhinoplasty.
Benefits of rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasty surgery comes with many benefits that are generally divided into medical and aesthetic. Below are just 5 of the benefits you can expect from a rhinoplasty.
Many wish for their nose to be smaller, a bump in the ridge to be smoothed out, or facial symmetry to be improved. Day-to-day life with these physical attributes can have a significant impact on body confidence which is why many people seek out a rhinoplasty. The rhinoplasty procedure is all about listening to your concerns and changing the nose shape, size, and proportion in a way that will be beneficial to your body confidence.
2) Restore facial symmetry
Facial symmetry is a trait associated with youthfulness and beauty. Thankfully, a properly executed rhinoplasty with an experienced surgeon can leave you with improved facial balance. The nose’s central position makes it vital to the overall facial balance and symmetry. Whether it be a crook, bump, or uneven sizing, the nose can impact symmetry in many ways. Rhinoplasty is often used to smoothen problems like these to bring facial symmetry to a face that previously looked offset.
There are lots of possible causes for snoring, but the troublesome sleeping trait is often caused by a deviated septum (wall of cartilage that separates the nostrils). An unaligned septum can cause breathing issues which, in turn, lead to snoring. The good news is that rhinoplasty can straighten a deviated septum to clear the canal ways and alleviate the problem. You (and your partner) will enjoy a good night’s sleep in no time!
4) Improve breathing
Most people breathe through their mouths due to difficulty breathing through their nose. But did you know habitual mouth breathing can cause various dental problems, sleep apnea and weaken the immune system?
Because rhinoplasty can fix structural problems such as overly large turbinate, a deviated septum, and small, narrow nostrils, the surgery can be used to make nasal breathing easier and more efficient.
5) Sinus problems
Nasal congestion is often experienced with common colds, but when it lasts longer than a week, it’s often a sign of a more permanent issue like turbinate enlargement or a deviated septum. A rhinoplasty procedure can clear up your breathing canals to alleviate the issues that come from sinus problems such as constant congestion, breathing difficulties and recurring headaches.
