The new year always inspires people towards change. This year, consider treating yourself to the rhinoplasty you’ve always thought about undergoing but have never made steps toward. Here are a few reasons to convince you:
It is medically beneficial.
For those who have a deviated septum, a rhinoplasty can correct that issue. A deviated septum “is the medical name for a condition where the centre cartilage of the nose (the nasal septum) is off-centre. A deviated septum creates difficulty breathing through the nose. Typically, the condition is more pronounced on one side of the nose and can sometimes result in sinusitis or sinus infections.” It is estimated that almost 75% of the population could have a deviated septum and never know it. If you have trouble breathing or you know for a fact you have a deviated septum, today is the day to look into getting a rhinoplasty.
It would correct damage from an accident.
If you are someone who likes adventure, the outdoors, playing sports, or anything high-contact, chances are high that you could break your nose at some point. The good news is that if it’s treated within two weeks of being broken, there’s a very high likelihood that your nose can be returned to its original condition. After the two week period, the bones begin to set and it’s trickier to move them, although not impossible.
It is for cosmetic reasons.
Your nose is a prominent feature on your face. As such, if it is a feature you don’t like, do something about it! A rhinoplasty can smooth out a bump, fix a crooked nose, make a nose larger or smaller, and many other options. However, rhinoplasty is not magic; talk to your surgeon extensively about your expectations for your rhinoplasty to find out if they are realistic.
