4 Benefits of Rhinoplasty

A lot of people think that rhinoplasty, or what’s commonly known as a ‘nose job’, is all about achieving a perfect, beautiful face.  While it is a great way to give yourself a new look, there’s more to it than just cosmetics.  Read on to learn about some of the other ways people benefit from rhinoplasty.

1. Improved Breathing

One of the most common reasons people undergo rhinoplasty is to treat one or more of the many breathing problems associated with misshapen nasal passages.  Fixing the shape of the nose and correcting the shape of the nostrils allows air to pass through freely.

2. Eliminate Snoring

Snoring can be a huge problem, especially for those with a significant other.  Some studies have shown that up to 23% of couples sleep in separate bedrooms because one of the partners has a snoring problem.  It is also cited frequently in divorce cases as a cause for separation! Rhinoplasty is the only effective treatment in a number of snoring cases, specifically when it is due to misshapen nasal passages.

3. Improved Confidence

Rhinoplasty doesn’t only change how other people see you, it can change how you feel about yourself.  This is one of the primary reasons people seek out cosmetic surgery. People with a positive self-image often perform better in relationships and at work.  Positive feelings about oneself are often projected onto those around you, improving your day-to-day life.

4. Fixing a Broken Nose

Often, people who suffer from a broken nose don’t take the proper steps to have it reset, resulting in a nose that heals incorrectly.  This can cause a number of problems down the line, including clogged sinuses and nasal passages.  Regardless of how long ago an injury occurred, rhinoplasty can correct a broken nose that didn’t heal correctly. 

What can we take from this? Well, there’s a reason rhinoplasty is one the most popular cosmetic surgeries in the country—and it isn’t always all about looking good.  If you think that you could benefit from rhinoplasty, contact Dr. Daniel Del Vecchio, Boston’s leading cosmetic surgeon, and learn more about how rhinoplasty can improve your life.
