5 Common Myths About Rhinoplasty

At one time, rhinoplasty (nose job), was thought to be something a vain person might seek in order to make themselves more attractive.  Over time, perceptions of rhinoplasty have changed, but misconceptions still exist.  Below are 5 common myths or misconceptions about rhinoplasty.

  1. Nose jobs are for self-obsessed people.  There is nothing wrong with wanting to increase self-esteem and self-confidence.  Not everyone is born with a nose that makes them feel confident about themselves. Other than a rhinoplasty, there are not too many ways to change the appearance of something smack dab in the middle of your face.
  2. The only reason people get rhinoplasty is to change their appearance. This is simply an incorrect notion.  Rhinoplasty can result in improved breathing and correcting noses that otherwise function improperly.
  3. Rhinoplasty is only for the wealthy. Nose surgery can be an affordable option and at times, is even covered by insurance.  If there is a medical need to alter the nose, insurance companies frequently pay for it.  Deviated septums and snoring conditions frequently necessitate nose surgery for correction and for this reason; many insurance companies will cover rhinoplasty.
  4. Rhinoplasty is for those who want to look like a celebrity. Most nose modification surgery is for those who want a slight modification to their nose to either increase functionality, or to boost self-confidence.  People who think nose surgery is for those who want their nose to look like a celebrity’s nose are simply mistaken.
  5. A person with a modified nose can be spotted from a mile away. Most patients seeking rhinoplasty are not looking for drastic changes.  Taking a bump out, or making the nose slightly smaller is usually what people are looking for.  Noses with minor modifications are virtually undetectable.
