Here's How Getting a Nose Job Affects Your Mental Health

Rhinoplasty is a life-changing tweak that can boost your confidence and make you feel more comfortable in your own skin. That said, getting a nose job is a big step to take. So before you undergo the procedure, you should know how changing your appearance can impact your mental health.

In this blog, Dr. Nicholas Nikolov from The Nikolov Center for Plastic Surgery shares how a nose job can boost your self-esteem and decrease your anxiety.

Anxiety rates go down

Many patients who get a nose job experience an immediate confidence boost, and most are happy with their results. Studies show that the satisfaction rate for the procedure is 87%.

Even better, research shows that patients who undergo the procedure may experience a decrease in anxiety. So if you battle with mild anxiety or if you have insecurities that prevent you from excelling in your professional and personal life, a cosmetic procedure may help you.

High self-esteem levels linked with career success

We all want to become more confident. But did you know that a cosmetic procedure may help you advance in your career?

A successful cosmetic procedure can boost your self-esteem levels, making it easier for you to navigate the hardships and challenges you face each day.

In the workplace, confrontations are inevitable, as is having to be in the spotlight when showcasing your accomplishments. But when your self-esteem levels are low, it’s tougher to deal with these obstacles.

Experts say confidence is the most important factor that drives raises and promotions.

Receiving the most benefit from a nose job

While a nose job can boost self-esteem in many people, patients who suffer from severe depression, severe personality disorders, or psychosis may not experience improvements in their quality of life after undergoing a nose job. Therefore, it’s important to avoid thinking that a nose job can solve all of your problems.

On the flip side, studies show that mentally healthy individuals normally experience an overall increase in their quality of life after undergoing cosmetic procedures. As long as you don’t suffer from any severe mental health issues, a nose job can improve your confidence.
