When rhinoplasty patients decide to undergo the procedure, they expect the results they dream of. As one of the most popular facial surgeries available today, rhinoplasty has a track record of delivering just that for millions of patients. Whether it’s fine-tuning the small details of the nose or restructuring the entire nasal bridge, a rhinoplasty can achieve great things for many patients. Yet, the positive effects of rhinoplasty go far beyond getting the nose you’ve always wanted. In fact, many rhinoplasty patients are surprised at how much this one surgery can change.
You May Breathe Easier After Rhinoplasty
The main goal of rhinoplasty surgery is to enhance the appearance of the nose while maintaining or improving its functionality. As such, rhinoplasty surgeries have a lot of room to make positive changes for patients. While there are those patients who turn to rhinoplasty for only functional improvements, even patients who are seeking the procedure for strictly cosmetic reasons might be surprised at how much better they can breathe after surgery. A skilled, board certified facial plastic surgeon will perform your rhinoplasty with your best interests in mind, leaving behind a newly shaped nose and cleared air passages. Don’t forget to talk to your facial plastic surgeon if you have trouble breathing or suspect that your airways may be obstructed in some way.
You’ll Sleep Easier After Rhinoplasty Too
When your breathing gets better, you’ll sleep better too! Opening up the nasal passages through rhinoplasty can eliminate snoring, nose bleeds, headaches, sinus congestion, and other unpleasant side effects that can interfere with your sleep. If you have been struggling to get to sleep and stay that way, talk to your rhinoplasty surgeon about it to discover if your symptoms are related to a breathing issue. Once you start sleeping well again, you’ll benefit from a refreshed feeling and renewed energy in every aspect of your life!
You’ll Pose for Photos Again After Rhinoplasty
Many prospective rhinoplasty patients admit that they are a little bit camera shy and tend to duck out of photos whenever they can. Being embarrassed about the shape of your nose can lead to self-image problems, and of course, a desire to keep that nose out of the spotlight as much as you can. After rhinoplasty surgery, however, those same patients might begin jumping at the chance to take pictures with family and friends. Sitting down for a photo-op induces a lot less anxiety when you’re more confident about the way you’ll look in the finished product. When you meet with your facial plastic surgeon, he or she can help you to visualize your post-operative changes using the VECTRA 3D imaging system. This revolutionary technology takes real 3D pictures of you and shows your surgeon’s intended changes to give you a real first look at what your new nose will look like.
You Might Look Younger After Rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasty is not generally known as an anti-aging procedure, nor will your facial plastic surgeon make any promises that changing your nose will take 10 years off your appearance. Still, many rhinoplasty patients are surprised to discover that the changes made to their nose actually cause them to be perceived a little bit younger. Especially among patients ranging from ages 15 to 61, youthfulness seems to be an unexpected perk of nasal surgery. While you should never change your nose for the express purpose of looking younger, it’s certainly something you might achieve completely by accident with this procedure.
You’ll Be Happier and More Confident After Rhinoplasty
When your rhinoplasty surgery is successful and you’re happy with the result, you’ll be surprised to find out how much more confident you’ll become in nearly every part of your life. After a patient has spent a lifetime hating his or her nose, or one detail of that nose, finally changing it can have a very profound and emotional impact. Under the right circumstances, rhinoplasty patients will see a boost to their self-esteem, self-confidence, self-image, and even their personal happiness. Many patients report feeling more satisfied with their social and professional lives, as well as an improvement in their own mental health, emotional health, and quality of life. It might seem impossible that one procedure can be such a game changer, but anyone craving the change that comes with rhinoplasty is primed and ready to see this positive windfall. Talk to your facial plastic surgeon to learn more about the potential benefits you might experience after rhinoplasty surgery.
