Patients and surgeons contribute time and effort to a personalized procedure, expecting the best-possible result in return. Nasal surgery is much like an investment partnership. That's how asking for an estimate helps you see what this “procedural partnership” will require.
It's an age-old debate. How young is too young for plastic surgery? Well, that answer is different based on a variety of reasons. It is actually based on both physical growth and emotional readiness. Parents will seek plastic surgery for their child for a variety of reasons.
Rhinoplasty is the second most common facial plastic surgery procedure performed on more than 200,000 people a year. Individuals seek rhinoplasty or nose surgery, for any number of reasons including broken noses, bumps, revisions from a previous surgery, and just small changes to make the nose more refined. Even such slight alterations can greatly improve one's appearance.
Patients resort to rhinoplasty - or nose reshaping surgery - for either corrective or cosmetic purposes. While some of them want to achieve a perfect, celebrity-like nose, others resort to the procedure to correct damages caused by an unfortunate accident. But aside from aesthetics, did you know that getting a nose job could give you these unexpected benefits?
The structure of your nasal airways and sinuses largely determines whether you’re breathing deeply and easily—or troubled by inflammation, mucus, pain or illness. According to the Center for Disease Control, nearly 30 million suffer sinus infections and breathing problems from allergies, pollutants, and structural issues in the nasal cavity. One such issue is a deviated septum, which affects 80% of people by injury or genetics. Such nasal-structural issues can decrease your quality of life through recurrent symptoms, like headaches, congestion, mucus, coughing, sore throats, fatigue, and even bad breath.
Unhappy with the appearance of your nose, yet concerned about Rhinoplasty surgery, risks, recovery time and cost? Going under the knife is a huge decision and you need a significant amount of downtime to recover. Consider a non-surgical option when thinking about minor changes to the nose!
Board certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Jeffrey Raval is highly regarded for his rhinoplasty surgeries and he can correct any number of issues or malformations of the nose. Being known as the Nose job doctor, he can help anyone have the nose that'll bring back their self confidence and self esteem.
If you’re considering a surgical change to your nose, it’s important to learn what rhinoplasty can and cannot do for you. It helps to understand what the surgery itself involves. There are two types of nose surgery, referred to as open or closed procedures. There is just one difference between the two, but it can make a significant difference in your results.
If you’re like most people, cost is one of the factors you consider when deciding whether to have surgery or some type of cosmetic enhancement procedure. Will your health insurance help pay?
Each insurance company has its own set of policies regarding what is or isn’t covered. And, of course, individual coverage can vary widely, too. If you have non-traditional insurance such as a health savings account (HSA) or flexible spending account, that may also affect your coverage options.
Denver is well-known as the Mile High City, but there are numerous communities throughout the state that are much higher in elevation. Here at Raval Facial Aesthetics we also see patients from outside the state, who fly in for their surgery. So it makes perfectly good sense when patients ask us about potential altitude-related considerations.
