If you have struggled your whole life with the ability to breathe correctly because of the anatomy of your inner nose, or if you have always looked in the mirror with disgust because of the size and shape of your nose then you might benefit from having a rhinoplasty performed on your nose. This is simply the fancy name for a nose job.
If you have never minded the look of your nose, but you have never been able to breathe right then there could be an internal problem such as a deviated septum that could be causing your problem. With a health problem like this, it is possible that your health insurance will cover it. They might not cover any cosmetic changes that are made, but it might depend on how strict your particular insurance is about such things.
If your nose problem is strictly cosmetic then your insurance might not cover the procedure, but you should not let this stop you from having the surgery.
Having a nose that seems to throw off the harmony and symmetry of your face can cause you to be insecure and not able to be yourself. Perhaps you were teased as a child and now you are okay with it, but you never quite feel like you are nice looking because your nose just does not seem to match the rest of your face. This could be hurting you without your even realizing it. It could be affecting your ability to rise in the business you are a part of because the administration might think you are timid because of your insecurity. It could also affect your love life. Perhaps your insecurity makes you appear unapproachable.
If you decide that a rhinoplasty would be beneficial for you then you will want to find a plastic surgeon that will offer what you are looking for in surgery. Look for a surgeon that has the technology to show you what you likely look will like after surgery. This will help you not to have incorrect expectations. Also look for a surgeon that you can afford. Financing may be necessary, so make sure you look for one that offers this. You will of course also want to research a plastic surgeon’s background to make sure they are qualified and have a good reputation.
Once you find a surgeon, he or she will be able to help you understand the procedure that will work the best for you. There are 3 main types of rhinoplasty procedures. There are open, closed, and a tiplasty. The open type uses an incision on the outside under the tip as well as in the nostrils so that that the doctor can open the area. The closed type is used in less detailed cases and the incisions are inside the nostrils. The tiplasty is a surgery only for those who want the tip of the nose changed.
