Rhinoplasty or nose job is a standard plastic surgical procedure that helps refine nasal aesthetics and/or improves problems with breathing. Although a safe and routine practice, the nose job requires a skilled, experienced plastic surgeon to maximize the chance of achieving your goal and minimizing any complications.
Rhinoplasty is a common plastic surgery procedure chosen by millions of people worldwide to improve their nasal shape. Most nose job procedures deliver the desired results. But the possibility of a revision is still there, with 5 to 10 percent of people requiring a second operation.
Rhinoplasty improves the aesthetic appearance of the nose, balancing your facial features and providing a more pleasing appearance. The vast majority of people who decide to have a nose job want the procedure to introduce subtle enhancements and deliver natural-looking outcomes. Almost nobody wants any indication that surgery has been performed and prefers to look as if this is the nose they always had. This explains why plastic surgery requires skill, experience, and considerable attention to detail.
The shape of the nose depends on the bone and cartilage skeleton and the skin that drapes over it. Rhinoplasty is the surgical intervention that modifies the underlying bone and cartilage architecture.
Also known as a nose job, rhinoplasty is one of the more difficult cosmetic surgical procedures to perform. Every nose is different and everyone has different goals. The thickness of the nasal skin is one factor that affects the outcome and must be considered in the surgeon’s operative plan.
Should teenagers get nose jobs?
Answer: Sometimes. Like many things in life, it is more complicated than Yes or No. If you add the social pressure of adolescence, high school and college to the stress that anyone, regardless of age, feels about a facial feature he/she dislikes, you can appreciate how intensely some teenagers seek rhinoplasty.
When it comes to the aesthetic imperfections of the nose, the most commonly reported concerns are size, shape, straightness, and overall elegance. In addition to these, there are many other reasons why people choose to have rhinoplasty. Cosmetic nasal surgery is one of the more difficult surgical procedures that one can have on the face. For one thing, the nose is a central feature of the face and flaws are more noticeable and harder to conceal than other imperfections. Equally important, rhinoplasty itself is difficult because it requires an understanding of how the external appearance will change given modifications of the internal bone and cartilage framework.
