Rhinoplasty is the third most commonly-performed facial cosmetic procedure. It is a very intimate and highly-personalized procedure, one of the most difficult of all facial plastic surgeries.
What Are the Most Common Reasons People Get a Nose Job?
People choose to undergo a rhinoplasty for many different reasons. The concerns we see the most include:
- A bump on the bridge of the nose
- Medical issues from a broken nose
- Noses with a bulbous tip
- Noses with a pinched tip
- Noses that droop
- Uneven nose structure
- Overlarge, wide, or long nostrils
- Nose too flat or wide
- Unhappiness with overall size
Whether you have one major concern, or want to address several issues at once, Dr. Siegel will come up with a comprehensive, customized surgical plan to professionally reshape your nose structure and achieve balance, harmony, and enhance your other features.
Will A Nose Job Change My Voice?
Unless extreme structural changes are being made (such as a major septoplasty from an injury), your voice will likely remain unchanged. However, because the tone depends on your air passages in your mouth and nose, alterations to your nasal cavities or nostrils can potentially slightly alter your voice. This will always vary from patient to patient, so consult with Dr. Siegel for a more accurate answer for your particular case.
How Long Do Rhinoplasty Results Last?
When a rhinoplasty is performed correctly, the balance between cosmetic changes and structural support is maintained, the results should last a lifetime. Any changes made to your bone or cartilage are for the long term. Alterations to your nose structure during a rhinoplasty will not change any more than the rest of your natural features as you age. Your newly-shaped nose should last a lifetime –ensure you have your procedure performed correctly, the first time, to avoid the need for revision surgery in the future.
Will Cosmetic Nose Surgery Help with Snoring?
Snoring is typically associated with a problem with the inner nose structure. If you have a deviated septum, this could be an underlying reason for chronic snoring. This functional problem can be corrected during your cosmetic surgery. In some cases, health insurance companies will pay for some portion of the surgery if breathing issues are considered to be a health problem.
