Summary: Rhinoplasty, or nose jobs, are the most popular form of cosmetic surgery… but why? Dr. Bosbous helps us understand.
Nose Job Knowledge
Rhinoplasty is the surgical term that refers to enhancing, reshaping, or rebuilding the nose. Most people like to playfully refer to it as a “nose job.” Chances are you can name at least a few people (famous or otherwise) than have undergone this cosmetic procedure. In fact, rhinoplasty continues to be at the top of most popular/common plastic surgery procedure lists year after year. If you’ve considered rhinoplasty, or know someone who wants a nose job, understanding the ins and outs is number one when it comes to satisfying results.
One of the reasons doctors believe rhinoplasty is so common is because the nose is a predominant part of the face. Dr. Bosbous, from Milwaukee Plastic Surgery, see’s many, many patients every year who want to alter their face using rhinoplasty. He suggested to us that because the nose is front and center when people look at you, it is very often a body part that we are insecure about. The rise of the “selfie” and social media accounts certainly hasn’t helped people feel better about their nose- they see it everywhere!- thus, rhinoplasty continues to dominate as #1 most requested procedure.
Knowing the Facts
Milwaukee rhinoplasty expert Dr. Bosbous can fix a number of nasal issues including:
- Size (too big, too small)
- Width (too thin, too wide)
- Projection issues
- Unusual nostrils or nasal tip
- Overall appearance of profile
For most these issues are cosmetic, but there are some cases where rhinoplasty can improve your breathing and help you to snore left. If you suffer from what is known as a deviated septum, rhinoplasty may improve your life in addition to enhancing your appearance.
