When people think of rhinoplasty (most commonly called a “nose job”), images of celebrities, models, and beauty icons likely come to mind. Although undeniably glamorous, the benefits of rhinoplasty don’t end there. In fact, you may be surprised to find that a rhinoplasty can improve the quality of your life. Here are a few unexpected benefits of a rhinoplasty procedure:
Fixing a Broken Nose
It’s no surprise that the nose is the most commonly broken bone on the face. Rhinoplasty can be especially life-changing for athletes and accident victims alike who require reconstructive surgery to return injured noses to their natural shape.
Functional rhinoplasty can treat a myriad of breathing problems. A functional rhinoplasty procedure can straighten out a deviated septum obstructing the nasal airway, as well as correct allergy-related issues such as enlarged turbinates and polyps.
If you suffer from sleep apnea, rhinoplasty can help open up the blocked airways, as well as reduce snoring. By improving sleep, rhinoplasty will enhance the overall quality of your health and daily life.
The sinuses are cavities located in the forehead, below the eyes, and above the nose. If any of the passages leading to the sinuses are blocked, bacterial infection can occur. Through opening airways in the nose, rhinoplasty can help prevent future sinus problems.
Whether you’re considering rhinoplasty to fix a broken nose, a birth defect, or a breathing problem, rhinoplasty can improve your life far beyond what you initially imagined. Best of all, you can harness your new-found confidence to tackle all of life’s challenges, from job interviews to meeting new people.
