Accidents, even fairly minor ones, can definitely be enough to shake someone up. An accident that is severe enough to damage one’s face and nose can be nothing short of traumatic. Whether it be a vehicular accident or some other incident, any force that prompts a person to seek rhinoplasty (nasal surgery) will most like leave a person scared and vulnerable. Not only does an individual have to endure the mental and emotional results of such an incident, dealing with physical results can be absolutely brutal. To make things worse, a damaged face and/or nose simply makes a bad situation even worse.
A damaged nose can have more than aesthetic concerns, it can have medical concerns as this is the “front line” of the respiratory system. A physically damaged nose can lead to breathing problems, a condition far more severe than cosmetic concerns. It’s not that aesthetic concerns aren’t important after an accident, but they are not a medical issue. Yes they can have mental and emotional effects, but these effects do not impact a person’s ability to properly breath.
