Surgery still makes up 60% of the total money spent on plastic surgery procedures, with one of the most popular options being rhinoplasty. The general rhinoplasty definition is that it is a type of nose reshaping surgery to correct a functional or cosmetic issue.
But the rhinoplasty definition aside, this surgery is often used to fix breathing problems, smooth out a bump in a nose, lift a drooping tip, or achieve facial aesthetic harmony.
However, there are some lesser-known, and often surprising, benefits that come with rhinoplasty. And these benefits might be one of the reasons you decide to get the procedure yourself.
One of the benefits of the surgery is that it has the ability to make you look, on average, a year and a half younger after a procedure has been done. According to a study in a 2012 paper by the Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery, the people that had a bump reduced or removed saw the greatest anti-aging effect.
Changing your noses shape can also affect your singing or speaking voice, and this can be a very good thing if you are uncomfortable or dislike your voice. Rhinoplasty that opens your airways may help you sound cleaner and clearer after the procedure has been done.
However, this can actually be a detriment if your voice is what you do for a living, like singing or similar. Make sure you ask your surgeon what type of effect if any, this surgery could have on your voice.
Finally, this procedure can help you sleep better at night, as if you have a deviated septum, you may snore, wake up frequently at night, and experience a dangerous condition known as obstructive sleep apnea. This is marked by breathing pauses during sleep.
Not getting enough sleep can affect your mood, your decision-making skills, and your energy levels during the day. This can have a negative effect on your job or day-to-day living.
Rhinoplasty that corrects a deviated septum can help you sleep more soundly at night, and feel better the next day.
These are just some of the benefits that aren't thought of when one considers getting rhinoplasty for themselves, there are much more. If you're curious about what other benefits can come from this surgery, or about the common rates, or just have questions in general, feel free to contact us.
