No. 1 — Breathe Easier
While rhinoplasty is commonly performed to produce aesthetic improvement, facial plastic surgeons can also improve the efficacy of the nose during a functional rhinoplasty or septoplasty. The dividing material of the nose that creates passageways for air to be taken in through each nostril can by imperfect in shape. The septum may be deviated, or bent in such a way that impacts airflow through the nose. This common fix can be treated during cosmetic rhinoplasty, or in a strictly functional nose surgery.
No. 2 — Minimize or Eliminate Sinus Troubles
Sinus infections are the result of a combination of conditions, including swollen sinus cavities, allergies, colds or viruses, and the inability for fluids to drain from collection sites. When a person suffers from a deviated septum, the sinuses function ineffectively, and the nose may not fully drain excess mucus. After surgery, such as balloon sinuplasty or functional rhinoplasty, sinus problems are greatly improved or eliminated altogether. Ran Y. Rubinstein, MD is a specialist in nasal disorders, and yields excellent results from this type of procedure.
No. 3 — Get Better Sleep
Sleep apnea is a dangerous sleep condition. Those affected by it actually stop breathing during rest. Respiration issues may be due to nasal blockage, which can be treated during functional rhinoplasty. In some patients, a severely deviated nasal septum can be corrected to promote more effective breathing. Those with sleep apnea who naturally sleep with their mouths closed can still intake sufficient oxygen through the nose.
No. 4 — Enjoy a New Look
Located in a central position and projecting away from the main plane of the face, the nose plays a major role in a person’s attractiveness. While this feature serves an important purpose, it may be an equally great source of discomfort. Through rhinoplasty, the nose can be refined through surgical treatment of its size and shape. Rhinoplasty, commonly called nose job surgery, is the most transformative facial plastic surgery. In addition to permanent changes, Dr. Rubinstein can also perform a liquid rhinoplasty through the use of injectable fillers. While changes are limited, this is a great option for patients seeking minimal improvement and minor adjustments.
No. 5 — Look Younger
A droopy or bulbous nasal tip or a disproportionately large nose can add years to a person’s looks. The cartilage of the nose continues to grow as people age, so a natural assumption about someone with a large nose is that they are older. Adolescent rhinoplasty can typically be performed when a youth has reached aged 15 or 16, though Dr. Rubinstein’s opinion may vary from case to case.
In addition, aging rhinoplasty is a procedure that mature individuals undergo. The nose may begin to take on a different, unfamiliar shape as a result of aging. Nose surgery offers cosmetic correction that provides each patient with long-term results. Other anti-aging procedures offered at Laser & Cosmetic Surgery Specialists, PC, include Clear + Brilliant, neck lift, otoplasty (where the earlobes are shortened), and chin augmentation.
No. 6 — Alter the Look of the Chin From a Side Profile View
While chin augmentation can be performed, some patients dislike the idea of undergoing facial implant surgery. Others may wish to create facial harmony from a side view by electing to have a rhinoplasty. When the length of the nose is shortened – even slightly – the chin will appear less prominent.
No. 7 — Restore Your Self-Confidence
A person’s physical appearance can be improved through cosmetic surgery. The nose can be a source of embarrassment if a person feels it does not suit his or her face. The central midface location of the nose causes rhinoplasty candidates to feel especially bad about their looks. The results of rhinoplasty have the ability to transform the face as little or much as the patient desires, allowing individuals to have control over how they present themselves to the outside world.
No. 8 — Be the Best Physical Version of Yourself
In the same way people with healthy lifestyles enjoy their good health and physical shape, patients of rhinoplasty can enjoy their good looks. There are only so many ways a person can physically change his or her own appearance; from weight fluctuations to hair changes, people can improve their self-image. Rhinoplasty is one way to make a permanent improvement.
No. 9 — Reconstruct the Nose Following Skin Cancer Surgery
Skin cancer can severely impact a person’s psyche and physical appearance. The experience affects the way people feel about their own mortality, financial security, and, following surgery, their looks. In order to ensure the lesion is fully removed from the body and cannot spread to underlying tissues, skin cancer surgery can create facial damage. Rhinoplasty can help restore person’s original look.
No. 10 — Enjoy the Old You Following Facial Trauma
Facial traumas exist as permanent reminders of terrible events in accident or abuse victims’ lives. Once the nose can be surgically corrected, Dr. Rubinstein is able to perform a reconstructive rhinoplasty to strengthen the nose’s underlying framework. In addition to a more reliable internal structure, the exterior look of the nose will be improved.
No. 11 — Harmonize Your Facial Features
Although each individual is born with all the features genetics intended, the different areas of the face are not always in harmony. In other cases, a person may have been born with aesthetically pleasing characteristics, but endured a disease or accident that changed the way the face looked. Facial plastics and cosmetic procedures can create a balance in one’s looks, which in turn promotes a more attractive face.
No. 12 — Look More Feminine or Masculine
Rhinoplasty can alter the look of the nose to enhance a patient’s feminine traits. In women, the nose tends to be smaller, less-projected, and more delicate than in their male counterparts. By surgically altering the nose, tailoring the changes to a female’s cosmetic needs, a patient can appear more feminine.
In the same way rhinoplasty can help women appear more feminine, men can also undergo cosmetic nose surgery to enhance male characteristics of the nose. Men generally have larger noses than women – this is assumed to be because their larger muscle masses can receive sufficient oxygen. The biological needs of men translate to gender-specific external traits, which is why the nose often looks more prominent.
No. 13 — Refine Your Looks While Preserving Your Ethnicity
Ethnic rhinoplasty is a specific version of facial plastic surgery intended to improve a person’s looks while maintaining traits of his or her ethnicity. One commonly performed ethnic rhinoplasty is Asian rhinoplasty. The nose is reconstructed internally to create a thinner feature, higher nasal bridge, and a more prominent nasal tip. Although changes are constructed internally, Dr. Rubinstein is careful to maintain an Asian look in patients by not making the nose too large or over-projected. Ethnic rhinoplasty is intended to preserve a person’s unique look while improving the shape of the nose.
No. 14 — Change Your Face How You See Fit
Simply put, it’s YOUR face! A person should enjoy their reflection in the mirror, the angles of the face in photographs, and feel attractive when out in public. If rhinoplasty can improve how one sees him or herself, they can make the decision to undergo cosmetic nose surgery. Family and friends may not always be supportive, but the decision is not theirs to make. And now, thanks to VECTRA 3D Imaging, patients can gain insight into what their new nose will look like. VECTRA 3D Imaging takes a three-dimensional photograph mirroring the pre-surgery facial structure and then offers a preview of the surgical results. Patients can see their new face before the actual procedure.
