Nose jobs are something you hear a lot about whether it’s on television, or from the nice lady down the street who claims she knew someone that ‘had one’. We’re not going to mince words; you want to look better, you want to look like a new person, and most importantly, you want to feel better. Is that too much to ask? We don’t tend to think so.
If you are thinking of seeking a rhinoplasty surgery however, there are a few thing that you will need to know before you get started. A nose job is not necessarily a straight forward operation and it’s really different for everyone. Let’s take a look at a few fun facts and then get down to the basics.
Understanding the Reality of the Nose Job
The first thing that you need to know, is that rhinoplasty isn’t exactly a series of steps. Many surgeries tend to involve steps and rhinoplasty needs to be fitted to the individual rather than the textbook. That being the case, each and every operation is going to be entirely unique and customized for your anatomy. Not only that, it will be customized specifically for the individual’s goals. You know what you want, you know who you want to be, it’s time to find a physician that will make it happen.
So how is it done exactly? What does a nose job physician do during a rhinoplasty procedure? Generally, rhinoplasty is performed inside your nose, but there can also be a small external incision made, which will allow your surgeon to readjust the bone, as well as cartilage beneath the skin. This, however, is a very simplified way of putting it, and there are definitely more complex procedures out there.
Changing the Structure
Let’s assume for a moment that you are not having a nose job performed for functional reasons. We know that there are plenty of reasons to get the job done, whether you want to correct a deviated septum, or have some other corrective procedure performed. If what you’re going for is simply a better look, however, know that your surgeon will be able to augment your nasal bone or nasal cartilage in many different ways. The one thing it depends upon, however, is what you need done, and how much needs to be added to your nose during the procedure. There are two general routines that can be performed:
Small Changes – Not every operation has to be absolutely huge. In fact there are some that will be relatively small, and you’ll definitely be okay with that! For these smaller alterations, the surgeon will be able to use materials (cartilage) that is harvested from inside your nose or even your ear. You won’t even notice its missing.
Large Changes – If you need something a little bit bigger done, then your surgeon will more than likely move on to removing cartilage from other parts of your body. For example, material can be taken from around your ribs and used on your nose. Chances are you’ll never even miss it.
