Rhinoplasty (a.k.a., nose job) is one of the most popular and rewarding procedures Dr. Robert Graper and Dr. Garrett Harper perform. A well-performed nose job can transform a person’s self-image and confidence, helping them shed insecurities and anxiety related to the appearance of the nose. Read on as our Charlotte cosmetic surgeons share more about the incredible benefits of rhinoplasty.
Rhinoplasty Improves the Appearance of the Entire Face
The nose is the focal point of the face and even the slightest imperfection can draw the eye’s attention. When the nose is out of harmony with the other facial features, it can throw off the balance of the entire face. For example, an oversized nose can make a normal chin look recessed or small.
Fortunately, addressing the imperfections of the nose — especially an oversized or crooked nose — usually improves the appearance of the entire face, making it look more attractive and in some cases youthful. Patients are often pleasantly surprised to find that rhinoplasty improves how their other features, like the chin, are perceived.
The Strong Emotional Component of Rhinoplasty
For rhinoplasty patients, there may be a strong link between how they feel about their nose and how they feel about themselves in general. The decision to have rhinoplasty is usually not made hastily. Most patients make the decision after years of worrying about the appearance of their nose, or feeling anxious about being around other people because of their nose. Some patients are the butt of jokes or the victim of bullying because of the way their nose looks. Others may even feel like they are unable to accept genuine compliments because they are so self-conscious of their nose and overall appearance.
A well-performed rhinoplasty procedure can alter or fix nearly everything that a person doesn’t like about their nose; thus addressing the source of their grief, anxiety and fears. The results of rhinoplasty may allow someone to heal from the trauma of feeling insecure, unattractive or bullied. A nose job has the potential to transform a self-conscious person into a confident go-getter.
Is Rhinoplasty Right for You?
If you are wondering whether rhinoplasty may be a good option for you, take a moment to ask yourself the following questions:
- Do the shape, size or features of your nose make you feel unattractive?
- Do you feel like the first thing people notice about you is your nose?
- Do you cover your face when you are talking to someone else?
- Do you hide your face from cameras and dislike seeing photographs of yourself (particularly from a side view) because of your nose?
- Do other people tease or bully you because of your nose?
- Did an injury or accident break or deform your nose, and you wish you could reclaim how it used to look?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you may be able to benefit from nose surgery.
