Your nose is one of your most important facial features. If you are bothered by its appearance, know that there may be a solution. Also known as a nose job, a rhinoplasty can help you achieve a nose that allows you to feel confident in your own skin. While a rhinoplasty is a great option for many patients, it is not for everyone. Let’s dive deeper into who is a good candidate for a rhinoplasty.
Who Can Benefit From a Nose Job?
The best candidates for a rhinoplasty are men and women who are in generally good health and have the desire to restore a more balanced aesthetic to the size and/or shape of their nose. Patients with certain birth defects or breathing issues may also benefit from a rhinoplasty.
Most of the time, patients opt for a rhinoplasty from Dr. Schalit because their nose is too wide, too large, too small, bent, or broken. They may also have a crooked bridge or nostrils that they believe are too small or too wide. Patients shouldn’t feel alone if they feel self-conscious about their nose, because many rhinoplasty patients are hoping to make a positive, permanent change to their facial profile. During the consultation, Dr. Schalit will take into consideration your ideal image, and the functionality of your nose.
Dr. Schalit does not recommend nose jobs to patients who are under 15 years of age as their noses are still developing. He also discourages smokers from this procedure unless they commit to quitting two weeks before as smoking hinders the healing process.
Benefits of a Rhinoplasty
A rhinoplasty can provide a wide variety of benefits. First and foremost, it can improve the way you look and feel. Your nose is a prominent facial feature and if you’re unhappy with it, you may feel self-conscious and shy away from social situations and living the high quality life you deserve.
If you’ve broken your nose after an accident, sports injury, or fall, a rhinoplasty can resolve many trauma-related concerns. In addition, it can help correct breathing challenges and treat chronic sinusitis or inflammation of the sinuses. Lastly, if you snore and have a deviated septum or another structural issue, a rhinoplasty can help restore proper function of your nose.
