Your nose is the center of your face and acts as the medial point for your facial structure. Any subtle shape in your nose is very important to the balance of your facial composition. That’s why many people choose to have rhinoplasty if they are dissatisfied with their current nose. However, it is important to be fully informed about rhinoplasty before taking the plunge. Let’s delve into some commonly asked questions about rhinoplasty.
What To Expect From a Consultation
A consultation is one of the most important steps in the rhinoplasty process. A consultation is simply a conversation between you and your surgeon. Understanding your goals, needs, fears, and questions is incredibly important to your surgeon and will help them give you the results you want. Rhinoplasty is as much of an art form as it is a surgical procedure. Expect to answer questions, ask questions, and allow yourself to become comfortable with having an honest conversation.
Can Rhinoplasty Help Breathing Issues?
Rhinoplasty is not just a cosmetic procedure but also one often performed to restore function. That being said, rhinoplasty can only help certain nasal breathing problems. Rhinoplasty can help repair structural issues with the nose that are causing physical blockages within the nose. A deviated septum, a collapsed nostril, and a pinched nose are all examples of things a rhinoplasty can help with.
Does Rhinoplasty Leave Scars?
It’s natural to worry about the appearance of scars from rhinoplasty. The last thing you want out of a cosmetic procedure is unsightly scars. Simply put, yes, rhinoplasty will likely cause a scar from the incision. Incisions are placed in as least noticeable places as possible, and scars will heal. Scars will fade with time and skin care. While rhinoplasty does often leave temporary scars, they will not be prominent.
