Nose job patient looking at the effects of her rhinoplasty

If you had the chance to make one change in your life that would make you look and feel better, would you do it? What if that one change was a way to correct something about yourself that was present at birth or happened recently? Despite its reputation as a cosmetic procedure, a nose job (rhinoplasty) has additional benefits that might surprise you.

These benefits include:

Giving your face symmetry

A rhinoplasty procedure is not just about the visual appearance of the nose. Consider all of your facial features and how each one plays a role in your overall profile. Offset or crooked noses can disrupt your face’s intended symmetry, but nose surgery like rhinoplasty can realign the bridge to give your face a more completed look.

Increasing athletic performance

If you enjoy cardiovascular activities like running, you know how important it is to have a proper breathing rhythm. Nose conditions like a deviated septum can disrupt your breathing and cause allergy-like symptoms, leading to an unintentionally strenuous exercise routine. With a nose job, your nasal passages can be opened for stronger breathing, although rhinoplasty recovery can take a few weeks.

Better sleep quality

Whether or not you exercise regularly, sleeping soundly at night is vital for proper rest. However, sleep apnea can be connected to nasal blockages, which results in a poor circadian rhythm (sleep cycle). A functional rhinoplasty procedure can make the nasal passages clearer from congestion and allow for proper airflow. This in turn can lead to a more restful night’s sleep.

Reducing sinus issues

Acute sinusitis, or a sinus infection, can take you out of the day with headaches, runny noses, and congestion among other symptoms. Beyond medicine and home remedies, one solution you could consider is nose surgery. Rhinoplasty and septoplasty procedures can allow for better breathing and also reduce the rate of chronic sinus infections.

Stronger self-confidence

Rhinoplasty can shape and form the nose into a way that is preferable for the patient. Beyond repairing damaged noses or correcting a previously misshapen one, one of the most apparent benefits shows up when you look in the mirror. Getting the nose you wanted can boost your self-esteem and confidence, especially if your nose was a stress factor at a young age. You can feel like the you that you always wanted.

Getting a nose job procedure might seem like a big leap, but what’s waiting for you on the other side are big rewards. That’s why the facial plastics specialists at CEENTA offer consultations and cosmetic options that fit your needs.
