Statistics say that the first thing people are dissatisfied with on their faces is their noses. Some find it too long, some too short, for some it is too wide, for some it is too narrow; some even find it too crooked. It is impossible for noses to satisfy their owners. Sad for the noses; but anyway, your nose has all the help it can get from a procedure called rhinoplasty, or simply, a nose job.
The benefits of a nose job, you ask? There are ample benefits of a nose job for both men and women of all ages. Youngsters below the age of 18 however, can not get a nose job for purely aesthetic reasons. They have to be diagnosed with a medical condition which can hinder their breathing somehow to be eligible for a nose job.
If the candidate is young, a doctor needs to thoroughly examine them. They need to grow fully into their noses to opt for this surgery. This is usually okay after the age of 14. The American Society oF Plastic Surgeons specify the age of 14 and above for girls and 16 and above for boys to be able to go for this surgery. Youngsters need to understand the whole process of cosmetic surgery, including its perks and the risks associated, and demonstrate emotional maturity to give consent to undergo this procedure.
All candidates need to keep their expectations realistic. You may be a good fit for a nose job if:
- You are physically healthy.
- Your facial growth is complete.
- You understand the impacts of this procedure
- You have realistic goals and a positive outlook.
- You don’t smoke.
More and more people are opting for a nose job nowadays, as the stigma surrounding cosmetic surgeries is finally diminishing and people are trying to look at beauty objectively.
A nose job can aesthetically improve and contour your nose. But certain medical conditions also make the patients undergo a nose job for improvement and cure :
1. Chronic Sinus Problems:
Individuals suffering from chronic sinus problems, including congestion and nose allergies. In these cases, a nose job can solve or eliminate the problem easily. It requires a medical diagnosis.
2. Deviated Nasal Septum:
This is the medical term for the condition where your central nose cartilage is not in the middle. The cartilage is slightly crooked to a side making it difficult to breathe through your nose. Usually, this is much more eye-catching on one side of your nose and can further lead to sinus infections. The doctor may also recommend you to get a septoplasty combined with a rhinoplasty.
3. Cleft Palate or Cleft Lip:
A common medical reason for a nose job is a cleft palate or cleft lip. This is a birth defect and if not treated, the child will continue to have eating problems and will not get the nutrition they need. Correcting a cleft lip will also aesthetically improve the looks of the person.
4. Some more Medical Conditions that require you to have a medical rhinoplasty are:
- Nasal injuries
- Nasal inflammation due to chronic allergies
- Burns near the nose area
- Broken or disfigured noses
- Aesthetic correction of prior deformities
Enough Medical terms for a day! Changing the shape, size and outlook of your nose for aesthetic reasons can also be done through a rhinoplasty. Now let us look at the cosmetic benefits for which people are opting for this surgery. This procedure will :
- Shape your nose into narrower or wider versions to suit your face shape
- Reshape even the tip of your nose
- Narrow your nose bridge
- Straighten your nose if it looks crooked
- Change the distance and space between your upper lip and nose
In the rhinoplasty procedure, the surgeon may hide the incisions they make inside the nose.
The main reason more and more people are having a cosmetic nose job done is to improve and feel better about themselves. There is nothing wrong with wanting your nose to compliment your other facial features, and not take the attention away from it. If you feel like you have a bad nose, it can very much bring your self-esteem down. Similarly, an improved nose will definitely have a good impact on you and boost your self-image immensely
According to statistics, more than 158,000 women and more than 50,000 men got a nose job in 2018 – 2019. Rhinoplasty has become the fourth most popular cosmetic surgery of all time.
