Many people opt for rhinoplasty and other plastic surgery procedures for the cosmetic benefits, but is that all a nose job can offer? Believe it or not, there are several medical benefits associated with the process, as well.
Here’s a quick look at a few of the clinical advantages of getting a nose job.
Your nose is responsible for helping you breathe, but if there’s something inside of your nose or sinuses that prevents proper breathing, you can experience issues like snoring. Rhinoplasty has helped countless people in their efforts to stop snoring, which is a bigger deal than it sounds. Approximately 23% of couples report sleeping in separate rooms just because of snoring, an issue that a nose job may be able to fix.
Birth defects can affect any part of the body, which means that the mouth and nose are not exempt. Rhinoplasty can help fix these issues, as well as make breathing easier after the procedure is completed. These procedures are sometimes considered cosmetic, but some birth defect can have a serious impact on a child’s life if they’re not corrected.
Some people have trouble breathing through their nose and are forced to breathe through their mouth instead without ever knowing why until later in life. The most common cause of this issue is a deviated septum, which can be remedied through plastic surgery. The procedure may result in a patient’s nose taking a bit of a different shape, but their breathing will be much easier.
If your nose has been broken and has taken on a strange shape as a result, rhinoplasty can help correct the problem. The procedure can correct breathing issues, bone issues, and more importantly, restore a patient’s self-confidence.
For the first time on record, Americans spent more than $13.5 billion on plastic surgery and related procedures like breast augmentation and eyelid lifts in a single year. But not every surgery is for the reason that some people might think. There are legitimate medical benefits to many plastic surgery procedures, as well as cosmetic ones. If you or someone you know is considering plastic surgery, make sure all of these are taken into account first.
