Among the most common cosmetic procedures is rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure used to change the size and shape of the nose. Since the nose is one of the main facial features people are dissatisfied with, it is common to look in the mirror wondering if your nose is crooked, too wide, too big or too small. When it comes to the size of your nose, there are several things to consider to determine if rhinoplasty is right for you. As a specialist for rhinoplasty in Chicago, Dr. Gary Wiesman at Wiesman Nasal & Sinus can help you love your nose. Dr. Wiesman also specializes in rhinoplasty for ethnic noses, ensuring results that complement your ethnicity and individuality.
What is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a nose job, is a surgery used to change the shape of the nose or to increase the function of the nose. Most often, people get a nose job in Chicago for cosmetic purposes. When your nose is too big or too small, it causes your self-confidence to decrease. Often, people get nose jobs to resolve noses that are too wide, turn-up, hook, or have a large bump at the nasal bridge. Many also get nose jobs because they feel their nose is too small, such as snub noses.
Cosmetic reasons are not the only reason a nose job may be needed. Those who have breathing difficulties related to the nose or those with nasal disfigurements can benefit from rhinoplasty.
Does Size Really Matter?
Often, when someone considers getting a nose job, it is for cosmetic purposes. However, there are some instances that may make rhinoplasty a medical benefit. Your nose is the main route for breathing, acting as the major pathway for air to enter the lungs. If your nose is too small, your nasal passages may be too narrow. As a result, you can develop difficulty breathing.
What are the Benefits of Rhinoplasty?
Among the most common reasons people seek rhinoplasty is to improve their appearance. By recontouring the nose, it will help to balance your facial features while improving your nasal profile. This will also help to change the angle between the nose and the mouth.
However, if you have a deviated septum, narrowed nasal passages, or other breathing problems, rhinoplasty can improve your quality of life. By resolving the obstructions in the airway through recontouring the nose, your breathing ability will be enhanced. Not only will you gain a new quality of life, but added confidence.
