Cosmetic Surgery

Whether or not we want to admit it, the nose is one of the first things people notice about someone’s appearance. Are you wondering why? Well, the answer is obvious – because it sits right in the center of your face. So, if noses get so much attention, it’s no wonder why countless nose jobs (rhinoplasty) are performed each year in the US. In Ohio, especially Beachwood, the number of nose jobs is growing. Part of the reasons behind this is that people of Beachwood tend to live a healthy lifestyle. So, due to so many bike rides, baseball, football and other sports, many accidents occur and their noses get hurt, and due to unfortunate events remain misshapen or deformed. However, the best Beachwood Plastic Surgery specialists are also Board Certified Plastic Surgeons. They have ensured their patients get the best rhinoplasty procedures that will restore the normal appearance and function of their nose.  Of course, accidents are not the only reasons for rhinoplasty. Many patients decide to undergo this reconstructive surgery procedure for medical or cosmetic reasons. In this article, we will take a closer look at top reasons for getting a nose job.


Repair Your Nose for Medical Reasons

Have you heard of a condition called a deviated septum? It is a medical condition where the nasal septum is off-center or crooked, creating difficulty in breathing through the nose. The condition is always more pronounced on one side of the nose, and if left untreated, it can lead to severe sinus infections and breathing problems. A deviated septum can be corrected by performing a septoplasty. This surgical procedure is usually never performed on patients younger than 18 because the septum still grows. Many people are simply born with this problem, while others experience an accident or nose trauma that will in result shift their septum. By correcting your septum, you will stop snoring (or at least reduce it) and be able to breathe normally.

If your nose is damaged in an accident, due to fall or a blunt force trauma, you may require reconstructive surgery to fix your broken nose. The good news is that if a broken nose is fixed within two weeks of the accident, the results will be very positive. After two weeks, the bones will start to heal, making it harder to straighten the fractured elements into a normal position.

Do a Nose Job for Cosmetic Reasons

As we mentioned, your nose is a part of your face that is always noticed first. Some people feel better about themselves if they have a more attractive nose and usually, they want to smooth nose bumps, reshape it, change its size and similar. The ideal nose should complement your face and contribute to your overall beauty. It shouldn’t distract the viewer and call attention to itself. A good nose job can certainly raise your self-esteem and improve your confidence. However, Beachwood Plastic Surgery experts always remind us that even if our nose looks perfect, it can’t change any of our deeper self-esteem issues. We must always have a realistic expectation from any cosmetic procedure and be aware that it will only affect our beauty, but not who we are on the inside.
