The popularity of the rhinoplasty surgery is on the rise so much so that it is one of the most sought after plastic surgery procedures available. Ironically, rhinoplasty is also one of the oldest types of cosmetic procedures amid the modern world of plastic surgery, but still has a track record of providing outstanding results. Rhinoplasty has held on to its ground in the face of competition because of the potential change it offers to the patients who need it.

Why is Rhinoplasty Popular?

How people view themselves is a very important factor in boosting confidence. When someone cannot stand to look at their nose, their confidence may also take a hit. In addition to cosmetic issues, the nose may also display some functional issues that cause difficulties breathing. If left untreated, these issues can hinder someone’s life, but with a rhinoplasty procedure, it will no longer be a problem.

The treatment is an effective solution for both cosmetic and functional deformities in the nose. Whether the issues were caused by an accident or they’re simply a result of your normal body development, a rhinoplasty can solve them.

Rhinoplasty Has Medical Benefits

Not all who opt for a rhinoplasty do it to get rid of their unattractive nose. The procedure has medical benefits as well. Rhinoplasty is performed to alleviate trouble associated with breathing, correction of nasal obstructions, widening of airways, and a deviated septum. Those suffering from sleep apnea, snoring, and sinus issues may also find relief after undergoing a rhinoplasty.

Rhinoplasty for Trauma and Injuries

Have you ever been in an accident that caused damage to your nose? If the answer is yes, then you are aware of the potential severity in damage that can happen to your nose. When this type of irreversible damage occurs, there is no option but plastic surgery to correct or restore it.

Rhinoplasty is sometimes also done to correct problems caused by a previous rhinoplasty, which makes it all the more important to find an experienced plastic surgeon to perform the treatment.

Rhinoplasty Procedure and Recovery

Rhinoplasty is generally done as an outpatient procedure, meaning that you will be able to go home shortly after it has completed. After the operation, a nasal split is to be worn for a week. Since the procedure is invasive in nature, anesthesia is administered to help ease discomfort. Your surgeon will begin the treatment by making incisions along the nostrils and in a few cases, along the base of the nose. The desired shape of the nose is crafted by reshaping the cartilage and the inner bone.

Slight swelling is expected immediately after the procedure. There may also be bruising, but nothing too severe. The swelling and bruising start to subside after a few days. Results improve over the period of six months.

Don’t be alarmed if the initial shape is not what you expected. Once the swelling reduces completely, the true shape will be visible.
