Rhinoplasty—known as the nose job or the nose reshaping. The nose is one of the most important parts of our bodies. The nose has lots of functions but the main function of it is breathing. Lots of people can complain about insomnia because of the nose structure and also lots of people may don’t satisfied with their nose shape. People who have such situations as one of these prefer plastic surgery on the nose.
Rhinoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure for reconstructing and modify the nose. There are two types of rhinoplasty surgery. The first one is ‘reconstructive surgery’ that restores the function of the nose. The second one is ‘cosmetic surgery’ that changes the appearance of the nose.
Reconstructive surgery aims to resolve nasal injuries. Reconstructive surgery also treats breathing problems, failed primary rhinoplasty, and birth defects. On the other hand, cosmetic surgery focuses on the appearance of the nose.
In general, rhinoplasty can treat;
- size of the nose and its relation to facial balance,
- nose narrowing or width at the bridge or in the size and position of nostrils,
- nasal asymmetry
- straightening of the bridge
- deformity at the tip of the nose
- angular distortion at the nose
All in all, if you want to undergo rhinoplasty for appearance rather than your health, you should wait until your nasal bone is fully grown. This period means 15 years and over for girls, while bones are developed at more later ages for boys. It is worth mentioning that rhinoplasty is a complete surgery and nose surgery is a very detailed surgery and has many risks besides its benefits. You should consider this fact before the surgery.
