Unsure Whether You're a Good Candidate for Rhinoplasty? Be on the Lookout for These 4 Green Flags
Rhinoplasty, also casually referred to as a nose job, is the most common surgical procedure performed on the face for both health and aesthetic purposes. In fact, according to Harvard Health Publishing, approximately 220,000 rhinoplasties are performed on an annual basis.
You, too, might be considering getting nose reconstruction or correction, otherwise you probably wouldn’t be reading this right now. But as with any surgical procedure, you’ll have doubts and many of them. It’s only natural to.
Your decision to get the surgery done may mostly come down to: will rhinoplasty be the right move for me in the long run? Find out if you’re a good candidate below.
Trouble breathing out of one’s nose is one of the biggest reasons some people opt for rhinoplasty from the start, and it’s a very valid reason to. A deviated septum is one condition that can lead to trouble breathing. Fortunately, rhinoplasty can help individuals who have difficulty breathing due to a nasal injury or deformity breathe easier than ever before.
1. You have difficulty breathing.
2. Sinus problems are common for you.
Many of us deal with sinus problems and other symptoms of allergies. Some people may take allergy medication. Others may use a neti pot. Then there are some of us who don’t really do anything about it but complain.
But if you’re sick and tired of dealing with chronic sinus problems and seem to have no luck getting rid of them, you might consider a nose job, that is, if a deviated septum is to blame for your seemingly never-ending sinus woes.
A nose job for aesthetic purposes isn’t just designed to make your nose prettier; it can also make other features of your face prettier as well. The right nose job can significantly enhance your eyes and even your smile. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to look even better than your best!
3. You’d love to enhance the features of your face that you already love.
4. You’ve never been happy with the appearance of your nose.
We all get low confidence every now and then. Maybe last week, you suddenly decided that your nose is too bulbous or that it’s too pointy at the tip. Or, if you’re like many who’ve already received rhinoplasty, you were never truly happy with your nose. If you fall into the second category, consider yourself a potentially good rhinoplasty candidate.
Remember: deciding to get a nose job for aesthetic purposes should never be a spur of the moment thing; it should be something you’ve been wanting for a long period of time and genuinely believe would boost your overall confidence.
Rhinoplasty can be a great procedure if performed correctly. Whether you’re considering rhinoplasty for medical reasons or simply want a nose reshape that you’ll be happy with, the latter can help you decide if you’ll be a swell candidate. However, keep in mind that only a qualified plastic surgeon can determine for certain if a nose job will be appropriate for you.
