Nose Job Facts

 Hey not crazy about your nose? Well change it, more and more people are these days.

Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic surgery procedure in which the nose is reshaped. Technological advances mean that plastic surgeons can re-shape almost any part of the body. The top five procedures asked by men in 2007 were nose reshaping, transplant of hair, eyelid surgery, liposuction and breast reduction.

Rhinoplasty (the political correct version of a nose job), nose reduction or nose reshaping is done by removing the skin and completely changing the structure of the nose, including bone and cartilage. There are a number of alternative methods a cosmetic surgeon has available to him to carry out a nose re-shaping procedure. One alternative method is where the skin from the back of the arm is used in place of the skin removed from the nose to allow re-shaping to take place. Where there has been damage to the nose and the condition of the cartilage is serious, Rhinoplasty is considered as a re-constructive procedure.

A survey was carried out on cosmetic surgery in 2005 and the top five procedures carried out on men were nose re-shaping, liposuction, hair transplant, eyelid surgery and breast reduction. Rhinoplasty is no longer just used for someone who needs nose re-shaping owing to an accident of birth but for those wishing to make their appearance more pleasing. Nowadays, men have almost the same options that women do with cosmetic surgery.

However, if you are considering cosmetic nose surgery you should ensure that your surgeon is a certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon and that he has good aesthetic abilities. Along with this requirement is the necessity that the nose looks perfectly natural, that there aren’t any external incisions and there’s minimal trauma. There are other considerations as well; for instance, minimal pain and performed under strict standards of safety and hygiene.

Today even teenagers are getting in on the act with more and more having nose jobs to improve their appearance. There is a great deal of improvements that Rhinoplasty can achieve, for instance, straightening a crooked nose or removing a bump even increase or decrease its length.

Many times the nose and jaw line can be enhanced by changing the size of a person’s chin. A smaller or receding chin can set this balance awry, placing a disproportionate emphasis on other features, such as the nose, particularly if this is already large. That is why many nose operations are also followed by reconstructive surgery to the chin, in order to balance the features of the face.

It is worth remembering that a nose job or a face lift won’t necessarily make you beautiful and it probably won’t change how the world feels about you. Some patients request this surgery because they perceive their nose to be either too big or an unattractive shape. If your nose has been broken and the cartilage has constricted is making it difficult or uncomfortable for you to breath. For some people having a symmetrical face only comes as a bonus, for the real benefit is that they can now breath properly again.
