What Concerns Can Nose Surgery Treat?
- Posted on: May 30 2022
Beyond the Hollywood glitz and humorous stereotypes, nose surgery is a common procedure that can treat a variety of different issues, including both aesthetics and medical problems.
As an expert in rhinoplasty, Dr. Stuart Lipton is intimately familiar with all the purposes and functions of rhinoplasty. Below, we’ll break down everything you need to know.
What is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty might sound like something related to a safari, but it’s quite simple. Its name says it all: It comes from the Greek word “rhino,” meaning nose, and “plastos,” meaning to mold — and when you put it together, you get “nose molding.”
That simple process sums up rhinoplasty. It’s a form of surgery that molds the nose to address cosmetic issues and craft a look that makes you feel more like yourself.
What Are the Benefits of Nose Surgery?
Many people get rhinoplasties for aesthetic reasons. Rhinoplasties can address elements of a nose that the nose-haver might not like, such as bumps, asymmetry, length or width. Having the procedure can help a person feel more at home in their own skin and, by extension, more confident.
In the case of patients who have suffered nose injuries, it can help them feel more like themselves, restoring a sense of disidentification with the face.
Additionally, there are situations where it’s medically beneficial to get a rhinoplasty. In some cases, injuries or hereditary issues with nasal structure can block the airway, causing breathing problems such as sleep apnea.
Rhinoplasty can help to repair these medical issues, freeing up the nose to breathe more clearly. As a result, patients may experience more full breathing and reduced instances of sleep apnea or chronic snoring.
