Nose surgery, also known as rhinoplasty, is a surgical procedure that involves the reshaping of the nose. The surgery may be performed for cosmetic or medical purposes, to improve the appearance of the nose and its function respectively.
No matter what your reasons are for getting nose surgery, if a highly qualified plastic surgeon performs it, you are more likely to get the best results possible. Let’s talk about the benefits of rhinoplasty and where you can go in Atlanta to get it done.
#1 Improve the Appearance of the Nose
A rhinoplasty can make your nose look more beautiful and proportional to your face. Whatever makes you self-conscious about your nose, such as its overall size, the size and shape of the tip, crookedness, a bump on the bridge of the nose, large nostrils, a flat nose bridge, or too much pointiness, can be addressed through this procedure. You will walk away with a more flattering nose to your liking.
#2 Improve Breathing
Oxygen enters the body through the nose. People with very narrow nostrils or a deviated septum – when the wall between the nasal passages leans too much to one side – or a nose that has been damaged by an accident or traumatic injury can make breathing difficult. Nose surgery can correct these problems and restore easy breathing.
#3 Reduce Snoring
Snoring is a symptom of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), and rhinoplasty can help open the airway and remove any obstructions that lead to loud snoring at night. OSA comes with serious health risks, such as diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, and more, and nose surgery can help reduce these risks.
#4 Improve Self-Confidence
Cosmetic problems of the nose may seem superficial to those who find no issues with how their nose looks. However, shame and embarrassment about the appearance of your nose can lead to low self-confidence and self-esteem. The truth is, if you feel good about yourself and are confident about how you look, you are much more ready to take on the world.
#5 Eliminate Sinus Problems
The sinuses are spaces behind the facial bones that can become blocked. Sinus cavities should drain, and if not, pressure can build up, causing pain and increasing the risk of infection, as the mucus will not drain the bacteria out the channels of the nose.
The great thing about rhinoplasty is that it is entirely customizable according to your needs. A plastic surgeon can address both cosmetic and functional issues depending on what you need.
