Nose jobs are among the most popular plastic surgery procedures performed in the United States. And when it all comes down to it, there really are only 3 reasons why people consider plastic surgery to alter their noses: they had facial trauma that injured their nose and they want to correct it, they don’t like their natural nose and want to change it, or they have breathing difficulties and hope a nose job will improve them.
Continue reading as Dallas facial plastic surgeon Dr. Bassichis discusses 3 three reasons for getting rhinoplasty in more detail.
Getting a Nose Job Because You’ve Experienced Facial Trauma
Whether you’ve experienced facial trauma in the past that affected your nose from a sports injury, a car accident, or something else, it can be difficult to accept the new look of your nose as it naturally healed. Dallas residents who have had a facial trauma break their noses will tell you that their accidentally broken noses typically don’t naturally heal in an aesthetically pleasing way.
Often times, the best course of treatment to return your nose back to its former look is to undergo reconstructive rhinoplasty. While your individualized surgical plan may include rebreaking the nasal bone, this break will be surgically controlled and totally different from the spontaneous break you experienced before. You can rest assured that Dallas facial plastic surgeon Dr. Bassichis has your end results in mind when he’s preparing your reconstructive nose job surgical plan.
Getting a Nose Job Because You Don’t Like the Look of Your Natural Nose
A common reason that patients visit Dr. Bassichis at Dallas’ Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery is that they don’t like the look of their natural nose, and they want to change it surgically. There are a variety of reasons a patient may be displeased with their natural nasal appearance, including feeling like their nose:
- Doesn’t have an aesthetically pleasing profile
- Is too big or too small for their face
- Is too wide or too narrow for their face
- Is crooked or otherwise misshapen
- Has an unwanted nasal hump
- Has nostrils that are either too big or too little
A cosmetic nose job can address all of these aesthetic issues (and more!).
Getting a Nose Job Because You Want to Breathe Easier
Finally, some Dallas rhinoplasty patients don’t choose the surgery for aesthetics at all. On the contrary, these patients have breathing issues but haven’t found relief with other medical solutions like allergy or congestion medications.
If the internal structure of your nose is impeding you from breathing easily, then functional rhinoplasty might be able to help you achieve this goal. Typically focusing on altering your internal nasal shelves, this procedure usually doesn’t involve any cosmetic changes at all.
