Date: 21 September 2016

Nose job, also known as rhinoplasty or nose reshaping surgery, is one of the most requested plastic surgery operations by not only men and women but also teenagers. Rhinoplasty is a type of surgery that aims to change the shape or size of the nose and it is the best way for the ones who desire facial balance. In most cases, the patients also suffer from breathing problems. To solve these both cosmetic and medical problems, nose job offers the permanent solution.

Even if rhinoplasty is the only solution to the patients’ concerns about their nose, before going under the knife, the one who will get a nose job needs to listen to himself/herself and realize the exact reason why s/he is taking this decision. If you are one of those who are hesitant about getting a nose job, please check the below questions and answer them honestly:

1. What is your age?

Many people generally start thinking about getting a nose job during their adolescence period and some of them insist on having rhinoplasty when they are still teenagers. However, plastic surgeons warn teenagers not to get a nose reshaping surgery until girls have completed 16-17 and boys have completed 17-18. Plastic surgeons always suggest teenagers to wait until they are mature enough.

2. Why do you want to have rhinoplasty?

Before taking the decision to have rhinoplasty, you should talk to yourself and try to realize the exact problem. Are you getting a nose job because your relationship is not going well? Or are you having rhinoplasty because your parents or friends put pressure on you? The plastic surgeons always warn their patients that they should do it only for themselves, not for other people.

One of the main reasons why people decide to go under the knife is because they are not happy with the shape or size of their nose. You may want to be removed a hump on your nose or corrected your nose after an injury. You may have a large, crooked or too small nose and all of these problems may be easily fixed by getting a nose job. Apart from these cosmetic reasons, most of the rhinoplasty patients also suffer from breathing problems. Rhinoplasty can correct a deviated septum while also creating symmetrical nose.

3. Have You Found the Plastic Surgeon that You can Trust?

After you have decided to have rhinoplasty, finding the plastic surgeon for your nose reshaping surgery is the toughest part. Most probably, until now you have checked a lot of websites, read a lot of reviews about the doctors and the clinics. But which plastic surgeon is the best? Which clinic should you trust? As the nose is the most defining features of the face, in the wrong hands the result can be a disaster.

Before having the surgery, you need to contact your doctors/clinics for before-after photos. Even if each person has a unique bone structure, by looking at the results of the doctor, you may have a general idea. If possible, you should have an online consultation with your surgeon and talk to him/her extensively. Honest communication between you and your surgeon is the key point for the successful nose job surgery. You should explain the problems that you have with your nose and you also need to be realistic.
