In the world of aesthetic enhancement surgery, it seems more and more men and women are growing far more comfortable with surgical enhancement, each and every year. While in years past plastic surgery procedures were thought to be a source of shame, and something to be kept hidden and not a thing to share with the world. However, in recent years that’s been the farthest thing from the case, the vast majority of individuals who are plastic surgery patients are joining groups, entering online forums and much more. In doing so not only are they able to learn more about prospective procedures they might want to have but they are also able to eliminate the stigma often placed upon those who have aesthetic enhancement procedures, or plastic surgery in general. This has led to record rates of surgical enhancement, and some of the procedures have literally skyrocketed in terms of the number of patients having them. One such procedure has definitely been the rhinoplasty, otherwise often known as the nose job. According to Dr. Richard Swift, the top rhinoplasty specialist NYC has to offer, more men and women have come in for rhinoplasty this past year than almost any in years past. And according to studies by the American plastic surgery association numbers are set to improve year over year.
As one of the most popular procedures around in today’s aesthetic medicine world, the rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a “nose job,” is surgery to change the shape of your nose by modifying the bone or cartilage. Rhinoplasty is one of the most common types of plastic surgery, according to Dr. Richard Swift, the top rhinoplasty specialist NYC has in practice, there are many reasons for people to get rhinoplasties as it is one of the procedures that not only offers aesthetic enhancement benefits, but is one of the best procedures from a functional standpoint as well. People get rhinoplasty to repair their nose after an injury, to correct breathing problems or a birth defect, or because they’re unhappy with the appearance of their nose.Possible changes that your surgeon can make to your nose through rhinoplasty include:
· a change in size
· a change in angle
· straightening of the bridge
· reshaping of the tip
· narrowing of the nostrils
if your rhinoplasty or nose job is being performed in an effort to improve you appearance, and improve the size or shape of your nose and nostrils, cosmetically, rather than for health purposes, it is advised that you should wait until you are older, and your nasal bone is fully grown. In general, for young girls, this can be about the age of 15 years old. However, when it comes to men and boys, their nasal bone may continually grow up to a few years past that age, and in some cases as old as the age of 21 to 23 years of age. However, for those individuals, who might be considering having surgery because of a breathing impairment, or some other type of functional concern of the nostrils and nasal passages, a rhinoplasty can be performed at pretty much any age, even years younger, as it is considered a reconstructive surgery to improve the function of the patient’s nasal passages.
The one thing that patients must always consider however, when it comes to any form of surgery in fact, is the possibility of side effects and risks of the rhinoplasty. According to Dr. Swift, the top rhinoplasty specialist NYC has to offer, while all surgeries carry some risks, including infection, bleeding, or a bad reaction to anesthesia – when it comes to a rhinoplasty there may also be an increased your risk of other issues that might stem for the airflow through and into the nostrils. Some of these include:
· breathing difficulties
· a numb nose
· an asymmetrical nose
However, these are relatively rare and easily remedied by an experienced surgeon such as Dr. Richard Swift. For more information on rhinoplasties or other surgical procedures be sure to contact Dr. Richard Swift today.
