When you hear of someone getting a nose job, or rhinoplasty surgery, you may immediately think it’s because they want to change their physical features. While that’s the case in many situations, many people seek out a nose job for medical reasons.
What can a nose job fix?
People may also get a nose job for the following reasons:
- To fix their nose after an accident or injury
- To correct a breathing problem
- To correct a birth defect
Nose job surgery can include changing the shape, angle, or tip of the nose as well as narrowing the nostrils or straightening the bridge of the nose.
How do you find the best rhinoplasty surgeon?
Whether you’re in Denver or some other city, you want to make sure you are going to a highly skilled plastic surgeon for your rhinoplasty. Since the nose is such a central part of your face, you want someone who can leave you with the best-shaped nose for your face, not one that is badly proportioned. Look for surgeons who are certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery or the American Board of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. These certifications mean your surgeon has completed rigorous training in facial surgery.
What is the most attractive nose shape?
As you look into nose job surgery, let Dr. Keith Ladner advise you when it comes to the best shape for your nose. He can also let you know if anything needs to be done to optimize your breathing.
Is rhinoplasty a hard recovery?
On the contrary, many people seek rhinoplasty surgery because it is usually a short procedure with minimal recovery time. Most rhinoplasty surgeries last anywhere from one to four hours, and patients can typically return to work anywhere from 3 to 5 days after the surgery.
