According to a study published in Clinical Psychological Science, plastic surgery can help patients gain self-esteem, confidence, and happiness. The research shows that those who opted for plastic surgery reported feeling happier with their appearance overall, even if they only had procedures performed on one area of the body.
Unfortunately, many procedures don’t produce lasting results. BOTOX and other injectables need to be refreshed every few months, while many anti-aging procedures must be repeated every few years to maintain results. Breast implants often need to be replaced in 10-15 years.
Rhinoplasty, however, typically maintains excellent results for the patient’s entire life.
A Good Nose Job is Forever
Rhinoplasty is a popular procedure for many reasons, one of which is the lasting results of the surgery. If a patient undergoes a successful and artistic rhinoplasty surgery, he or she will not require touch-ups or additional surgeries down the road.
Here are some other benefits of rhinoplasty:
- Improves facial aesthetics and harmony
- Natural–in most cases no implants are used
- Better breathing/sleeping
- More confidence and self-esteem
- Back to work in 7-10 days on average
Rhinoplasty is not used as an anti-aging procedure, however, changes to the nose affect facial appearance dramatically, since balance between facial features changes.
Who is a Candidate?
Only a qualified plastic surgeon can determine candidacy for rhinoplasty surgery. However, the general requirements are good health, realistic expectations, and a personal desire to make the change. Teens who wish to undergo the procedure must wait until the nose is fully developed.
Choosing the Right Surgeon
For results that will last a lifetime, it’s important to select highly-qualified plastic and cosmetic surgeons who have a great deal of experience in performing rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty has a fairly high revision rate, due to the complexity of the surgery, so it’s important to choose a trustworthy doctor.
