Benefits and Harms of Having a Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty, or nose job, is a procedure that corrects the shape and function of the nose and is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries. This surgery is performed to reshape the nose naturally, repairing injuries caused by blows, accidents or structural and respiratory problems, and hundreds of thousands of rhinoplasties are performed each year… One of the best benefits of a good rhinoplasty is that it can improve the appearance of other components of the face and increase the harmony and harmony of the face.

However, there are different types of rhinoplasties such as open rhinoplasty, closed rhinoplasty, secondary rhinoplasty, filler rhinoplasty and laser rhinoplasty, each with its own harms and benefits. The question now is whether rhinoplasty is worth it.

Why do people decide to have rhinoplasty?

Here are five common causes for rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty is usually performed for the following reasons:

  • Correction of asymmetry or depressions on the nose
  • Replacement of implants or grafts that present the nose as a bunion or round.
  • Correction of nasal obstruction that prevents proper breathing.
  • Correction of very large, very small, long, wide or large noses with large holes and so on
  • Correction of pointed noses that take away from the fit and harmony of the face.

The Benefit of a Rhinoplasty

This type of operation is aimed at correcting certain nasal deformities to make it more attractive. Indeed, many people have psychological problems because of a complex of a morphological defect especially on the face. Thus, to restore this self-confidence and for some people to feel comfortable in their body, some physical corrections are necessary.

Furthermore, rhinoplasty is performed according to the aesthetic needs of the patient. The procedures can be reduction, augmentation and correction. For reduction, the excess part is removed. On the other hand, if the patient chooses augmentation procedures, the surgeon places a nasal implant or performs a cartilage graft.

The Risks of Rhinoplasty

Making the choice to have nose surgery is a very personal decision. You will need to decide if the benefits match your goals and if the disadvantages and potential complications are acceptable. The great advantage of this procedure is that it involves healthy patients, which implies a very low complication rate. Nevertheless, there are inherent risks in all types of surgery:

Bleeding – It is possible, although unusual, that you may have problems with bleeding during or after surgery

An infection – It is rare after an operation. However, if an infection occurs, additional treatment, especially with antibiotics, may be necessary.

Abnormal scarring – Although good healing is expected after the surgical procedure, the opposite can also occur. Treatments will be needed to improve this situation.

Skin disorders – Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure to reshape the internal and external structures of the nose. Skin disorders can occur independently of rhinoplasty.

Good to know : In the following month, you should avoid wearing glasses as much as possible, especially if the frames are heavy. The risk of modifying the result of the rhinoplasty is then very low, but wearing glasses will be unpleasant, and the skin may be marked.
