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?
Addresses Health-Related Issues
Many people have breathing difficulties brought about by a physical disorder of their nose. If your nasal septum is displaced, for instance, it will lead you to several health symptoms such as nosebleeds, loss of sleep, infections of the sinus, and breathing difficulties. But with a procedure called septoplasty, your nasal airways will improve, and all those symptoms will diminish.
NOTE: Nose surgeries related to health may also be covered by your health insurance.
Significant Boost in Confidence
In a long-term study published at the Clinical Psychological Science Journal, researchers from Germany found that going under the knife can have a positive psychological change in a patient's life. If you have a nose reshaping surgery, you could experience positive outcomes in the following areas: overall quality of life, mental and physical health, and self-esteem.
People who had rhinoplasty as young as 14 would tell you that the procedure has helped them with their self-esteem by giving them a positive self-image. As a result, they interact more and experience more joy in their life.
More Youthful Appearance
Patients who turn to a nose reshaping surgery for cosmetic purposes will be happy to know that after the procedure, they will look at least a year younger. In a study published at JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery, researchers from the University of Toronto found that a successful rhinoplasty procedure leads to a decrease in the perceived age of a patient. The researchers added that this rejuvenating effect is true to all age groups.
