5 Reasons Why People Opt for a Nose Job

Your appearance affects how you feel about yourself and how other people perceive you. Your nose, located in the center of your face, is a significant component of your appearance. There are many reasons people may not be happy with their nose, and a nose job, or rhinoplasty, is a safe procedure for making changes to the nose’s shape and function. 

When you have such an important procedure done, you want a plastic surgeon to understand what you want and who has the skills and experience to achieve it. Dr. Nicholas Nikolov is a board-certified plastic surgeon with decades of experience providing top-notch medical care. He has successfully performed many nose jobs for his patients, to improve their nose’s function and appearance.

What is a nose job?

A nose job, technically known as a rhinoplasty, is a surgical procedure to alter your nose. It can be done for functional as well as cosmetic purposes. After meeting with you and learning about your desired changes, Dr. Nikolov determines if this procedure can help you. 

Five reasons why people opt for a nose job

There are several different reasons why someone might be looking to have a nose job.

Changing the shape

There are many different shapes and angles of noses, and the one you have may not look the best on you. A nose job can alter your nose’s shape to give you a more flattering one.

Altering the size

An overly broad or a too-small nose can look strange, affecting your appearance and confidence. A nose job can increase or decrease your nose’s size to be in better proportion to your head and your other facial features.

Correcting a birth defect

Many different birth defects affect the shape and function of the nose. This includes nose asymmetry as well as nose issues that are the result of a cleft lip or a cleft palate. A nose job corrects these issues, improving the appearance as well as the function of the nose. 

Fixing an injury

Nose injuries are widespread due to participation in sports, falls, or auto accidents. A nose job can be used to repair these injuries, improving the nose’s function and appearance.

Deviated septum

The septum is the wall between your nostrils, and when it deviates, it’s not centered in the middle of your nose. This can cause breathing problems, nosebleeds, and pain. A nose job can be used to correct a deviated septum, reducing or eliminating these issues. 

A nose job is a safe and effective surgical procedure used to improve both the nose’s function and appearance. To learn more about rhinoplasty, call our office to set up an appointment or use our online appointment booking system.
