Beyond Cosmetic: The Health Benefits of Nose Job Surgery
When considering plastic surgery, many prospective patients value not only the aesthetic results of their chosen procedure, but the potential health benefits some operations can offer. Rhinoplasty, or a “nose job,” is one of the most popular procedures that offers both cosmetic and other benefits.
Many patients seek nose reshaping surgery because the nose is the centerpiece of the face, often magnifying any discomfort regarding its size, shape or other appearance-related issues. Nose reshaping not only addresses these concerns and helps to improve a patient’s confidence, it can also open airways to improve breathing, which can introduce more oxygen into the bloodstream and increase overall energy. Opening the airways of the nasal cavity also helps to enhance breathing while sleeping, allowing for a full night’s sleep that increases overall health and improves a patient’s mood.
During a consultation at Palm Beach Plastic Surgery, Dr. Fredric Barr will address issues of nasal “bump” and/or nasal tip or bot. Additional refinements may also include the use of cartilage grafts usually taken from inside the nose, or occasionally, the ear. Nasal breathing problems created by a nasal (deviated) septum obstruction can also be improved during cosmetic rhinoplasty procedures.
In addition to cosmetic rhinoplasty, Dr. Barr performs nasal reconstruction, or nose cancer reconstruction. To learn more about these and other procedures, or to schedule a consultation, contact Palm Beach Plastic Surgery today by calling (561) 430-2183.
