It’s common for people to dislike the general appearance of their noses. The most common complaints are its size or shape, leading thousands to seek rhinoplasty to create a more pleasing profile. This procedure can transform your nose’s appearance by changing its size, straightening it, or altering it. Our noses are central to our appearance, influencing how we feel about it and impacting our self-confidence. Here at Lake Country Plastic and Hand Surgery, we’re allowing our patients to update their appearance, helping them feel great about how they look when they face the world each day.
Rhinoplasty: Information That’s On The Nose
While most people seeking rhinoplasty are getting it for cosmetic reasons, more benefits are often overlooked. The shape of our nose influences our ability to breathe clearly and can lead to mouth breathing, especially while we’re sleeping. Mouth breathing is more than just irritating for our partners; it also has numerous health impacts and can contribute to developing sleep apnea. It can even impact the health of our teeth by causing dry mouth and impacting our natural defenses against tooth decay. Narrow nostrils and nasal passages can also increase the likelihood of developing sinus infections, as well as increase their severity and how long it takes us to recover from them. Needless to say, in addition to helping us look great, rhinoplasty can help improve your quality of life.
Some of the reasons individuals seek rhinoplastic surgery include the following:
- Altering the size of the nose
- Update the size and shape of the tip of the nose
- Straightening our nasal bridge
- Eliminating bumps in our nasal bridge
- Changing the size or shape of our nostrils
- Building up the shape of a flat nose
- Flattening noses that seem overly pointed
In addition to the physical health benefits mentioned above, rhinoplasty can notably impact our emotional health. Our appearance plays a central role in how we feel about ourselves; our nose is front and center of our face. When we don’t feel great about such a prominent appearance feature, it can significantly impact our self-confidence. This can be aggravated if others comment on our noses, even if those comments aren’t intended to be mean or malicious. Needless to say, being bullied about our noses will definitely cause an impact on how we view ourselves and our relationship with it.
