Even though many years have been passed after performing rhinoplasty, this surgery has still the most applicants. Rhinoplasty is one of the oldest surgeries in the modern age of plastic surgery, but it is still one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries. Mostly surgeries having been performed in the past give their place to new methods that are more convenient and cost-effective, but as we can see, rhinoplasty does not follow this rule.
This article discusses the reasons for the popularity of rhinoplasty that has made it the most sought after surgery.
Cosmetic nasal surgery increases self-confidence
When you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your nose, over time, this can have a bad effect on your self-esteem and self-image. You may avoid communicating with others or keep thinking about what others think about your nose. Sometimes it may be on your mind that no one should see you from the side view. This can affect the social and other aspects of your life.
Rhinoplasty allows people to customize their noses. Slight nose changes can greatly enhance your beauty because the nose is centered on the face, and its slight changes improve the symmetry of facial components. Therefore, rhinoplasty not only changes your nose but also the shape of other parts of your face. This is one of the reasons for the popularity of rhinoplasty because many people around the world are not happy with their facial appearance, and rhinoplasty allows them to make dramatic changes in their faces.
Rhinoplasty improves breathing problems
As mentioned, many people apply for rhinoplasty to enhance their beauty. These people may have community-based reasons for this surgery. It is undeniable that people do several things under the influence of their surroundings, but some people perform rhinoplasty for medical reasons.
Rhinoplasty can resolve many breathing problems resulting from small airways, obstructed nasal passages, deviation of the nasal septum, etc. These problems include sinusitis, snoring, nasal congestion, sleep apnea, sore throat due to breathing from mouth, etc. Therefore, over time, rhinoplasty continues to have its applicants, and this is not something that will change with society and culture.
Rhinoplasty repair the damage and injury to the nose
People’s nose may be seriously injured in sports or by accident. This injury can affect both beauty and breathing. To return the nose to its original state, nose surgery may be needed. Thus, as long as people have a nose fracture due to trauma, there is a need for rhinoplasty.
An accident may result in blood clots that, if left untreated, can damage the nasal cartilage or otherwise make the nose prone to breathing problems, so it is best to consult a specialist if the nose injury needs to be examined for reconstructive nose surgery.
Rhinoplasty can improve rhinoplasty results
You might be surprised while reading this sentence, but it is true. Sometimes people may not be satisfied with their rhinoplasty results. However, if you choose your surgeon wisely, this might not be the case. Dissatisfaction with rhinoplasty results might be due to that the surgeon did not apply the applicant’s desired changes during the surgery. Also, sometimes, the applicant does not take “cares after rhinoplasty” serious, and because of that, some injuries are made, which require rhinoplasty to be restored.
Whatever the cause, secondary rhinoplasty can lead you to the desired outcome. However, a secondary nose job requires healing from previous surgical wounds and injuries, which takes at least six months to a year.
Rhinoplasty techniques have evolved over time
Although cosmetic nose surgery has not been replaced by other methods for nose reshaping, techniques being used by this surgery have changed over time. For instance, in the past, the surgical scars and stitches might have remained after surgery, or for people who have meaty noses with pointed tips, although the surgeon moves up the nasal tip, after surgery their noses come back to their initial state. Today by using new methods, these would not cause any problems.
Another factor contributing to applicants’ satisfaction is providing the services of 3D scanning and surgical guides. These complementary methods have been proposed to increase the accuracy and quality of rhinoplasty to minimize the concern of the applicant about the outcome of cosmetic surgery. In conclusion, rhinoplasty applicants do not decrease in number, rather by using new techniques, we can witness an increase in the number of applicants for this surgery.
