Different reasons for rhinoplasty

Nose jobs accepted, popular

Every year more than a hundred thousand people get nose jobs, and most of them are happy with the results. According to a study in JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery, only about one in thirty nose jobs need revision, and according to the Web site Real Self, 90% of those who rated their rhinoplasties in the last two years said that they were worth it.


In fact, a number of young women have begun using photos and the Internet to document their own nose jobs and recoveries online for their friends and followers, including the transition period between the end of the surgery and the dissipation of the aftereffects. This helps with the loneliness that sometimes happens during recovery — you have to stay inside, keep your glasses off (which for those of us who need glasses and don’t have contact lenses means not going outside) and above all, stay away from anybody who might have a cold or flu so you don’t start sneezing.


Repairing a deviated septum

One of the most common reasons for getting a nose job is to repair a deviated septum. The septum is the part of the nose that separates the nostrils, and if it lies crooked, the whole nose looks crooked.


Fixing a hump in the nose

Another common use for rhinoplasty is to get rid of the hump on someone’s nose. This doesn’t always require surgery — if the hump is slight enough, or the rest of the nose is small enough, the surgeon get rid of it using little injections of filler that smooth the lines of the nose. Even if it needs surgery, it’s likely to be less intensive then surgery on the entire nose would be.


Nose tip rhinoplasty

A correction of the nasal tip is for people who are satisfied with the rest of their nose, but feel that the tip is too bulbous, or points the wrong way. This procedure is easier to go through (if not to perform) than many other forms of rhinoplasty and means a shorter recovery period — especially if the nasal bone is not involved.
