Summary: We’re used to thinking about the nose as little more than a breathing apparatus. It’s important for fulfilling that function, but not for much else. Of course, the nose also plays a crucial aesthetic role when it comes to your face. So, why is fixing your nose so important? Well, largely because of that unique aesthetic role that the nose plays in the face.
With Everything Else to Think About, Why is Fixing Your Nose So Important?
Think about the last time you looked at a great painting. I know, I know—maybe it’s been a while. But, even if you have to think all the way back to high school, imagine a great painting. You know what most great paintings have in common? Composition. This is true whether you’re talking about an impressionist collection of dots or DaVinci’s Last Supper.
In many ways, it’s the composition that makes a painting stand out. The same is true of your face. In many ways, it’s not whether you have beautiful eyes or hair or ears or lips—it’s how the composition of the face works together. In many ways, our concepts of “attraction” are defined by this composition.
So it’s not surprising that many people find fixing the nose to be a top concern. After all, a nose that is too big or too small can interfere with the overall composition of your face. So why is fixing your nose so important? Because it’s not just your nose you’re fixing.
Ways to Change Your Nose
If you truly do want to change your nose, there are certainly a few ways to do just that. Most of these ways fall under the purview of a plastic surgery procedure called a rhinoplasty. Known more commonly as a “nose job,” rhinoplasty is a relatively common (and popular procedure).
Surgical rhinoplasty is capable of changing the size or shape of the nose, addressing many of the following issues:
- A nose that is too large or too small along the bridge
- A nose that is too large or too small around the “bulb” area
- A nose that is crooked or out of alignment
- A nose that droops or dips in unwanted areas
- A nose that has humps or bumps in unwanted areas
- A nose that simply does not look right for one’s face
According to the website of the New Jersey rhinoplasty specialists at East Coast Advanced Plastic Surgery, there is great power in the ability of surgical rhinoplasty to enact changes. The recovery period may be somewhat slow, but scarring is kept to a minimum (in most cases, scars are rarely visible), and patients love the results.
Non Surgical Solution
For those of you who wish to avoid any type of surgery, there is a non invasive option called Non Surgical Nose Job. This option is available from a wide variety of cosmetic surgeons; however, non surgical nose job can only add volume to the nose, not remove it. This is something to think about when considering your procedure.
The Benefits of a Nose Job
We can maybe cut to the chase a bit and sum things up like this: the reason people get rhinoplasty is because of the benefits from the procedure. Simple enough, right? (I mean, rhinoplasty would not be nearly so popular if it only ever gave people negative impacts.) So, yeah, good stuff can happen after a nose job procedure.
What, exactly, is this good stuff? Well, let’s take a look at some of the benefits of rhinoplasty. First and foremost, patients tend to feel a sense of relief. People aren’t staring at their noses anymore! This might sound a little shallow, but think about for a minute. Think about living your whole life feeling as though everybody focuses on your nose, never seeing your face.
After a rhinoplasty, your whole face works in harmony. Your nose works with everything else—the composition is restored. So it’s no wonder that patients love the final effect.
Benefits of Rhinoplasty
Other benefits of rhinoplasty include:
- Improved confidence and self-esteem
- Improved ability to breath through your nose
- Improved overall functionality of the nose
- Improved aesthetic look of the nose
- A more balanced look to the face
- More enthusiasm about the way your nose looks and feels
The benefits for each individual patient will be unique and will depend heavily on why you wanted to get a nose job in the first place.
Why Get a Nose Job?
In most cases, patients get rhinoplasty surgery simply because there’s no other way to get the results they’re after. There’s no other way to change the look or shape of your nose—you really can’t diet or exercise your way to a different nose (though “nose exercises” are somewhat amusing to think about).
So if you think that changing your nose is important—and we can certainly see why that might be—then a rhinoplasty is definitely the way to go. It can help you get the nose you really want.
