Many plastic surgery procedures can be categorized as cosmetic surgery. That’s not to say there is anything wrong with getting work done to change your appearance, as those procedures can do wonders for people’s confidence and self-esteem. But some procedures, like rhinoplasty, can be cosmetic or corrective surgeries.
While many people choose rhinoplasty for appearance reasons, others have it done for an improved quality of life. If you’ve been contemplating talking to your doctor about rhinoplasty, we at Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group have compiled a quick list of rhinoplasty benefits to help you make your decision.
Breathing problems are one of the most common complaints among people these days. So much so that the market for nasal strips, air filtration systems, and similar breathing aids is booming. Whether it’s a mild case of stuffiness or something far more severe, breathing problems can range from mildly annoying to downright worrisome.
The most common type of surgical procedure to correct breathing problems is septoplasty, an operation that fixes a deviated septum. While many people have heard of this issue, it goes hugely undiagnosed in the general public because many people simply have no idea how much better breathing can be after surgery. If you’re looking to improve your breathing, rhinoplasty for a deviated septum could be right for you.
Lack of sleep is another problem prevalent in modern society, and like breathing issues, it seems to be more common in cities and other congested areas. And while there might be no way to turn off that blaring car alarm or shut down that loud bar down the street, rhinoplasty could drastically improve the quality of your sleep.
Inefficient or poor sleep is often attributed to breathing problems, which include sleep apnea, a condition that can clog or block people’s airways and can lead to various health problems down the road. While there are at-home treatments to address sleep apnea, many people can only get the sleep they need through a septoplasty procedure. If you would like to talk to an expert on septoplasty, schedule a consultation with Dr. John Layke.
Whether you’re getting rhinoplasty to correct a breathing problem or not, your nose will look different after your procedure. Work with your plastic surgeon to determine how you want your nose’s appearance to change. We want you to come out of the surgery as your best, most confident self.
Rhinoplasty can be corrective, cosmetic or a combination of both. If you’re interested in discussing your options, contact us at Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group today to schedule an appointment.
