Rhinoplasty: What You Should Know

Rhinoplasty is a form of cosmetic surgery carried out on the nose. Whatever the reasons for doing a nose job, one should be aware of the prons and cons involved with such surgeries.

In a high speed world as ours, people are fond of fixing up things. People fix their manhood mainly enlarging it, they fix their breast, they fix their tummy and some other body parts. The process is known as plastic or cosmetic surgery. In the world of cosmetic surgery, you can fix everything from your eyelids to your breast. In fast, no part of your body is safe! Of course, most of the time, cosmetic surgery is done for cosmetic reasons only—hence the name—but it can also help to improve the quality of your life in other ways. If you are considering plastic surgery, the key is to learn are much as possible about the process so that you are fully aware of the procedure and can make the best decision possible for your health.

One of the most popular kinds of cosmetic surgeries that is prevalent and that you can try is rhinoplasty, otherwise known as the nose job.

Rhinoplasty has a long history and was first performed around 500 BC by a man named Susrutha, who is considered to be the father of plastic surgery. Many of the same procedures he used are still being used today. The first rhinoplasty was done in the western world in the late 1800s. Today, it is done all over the world with great success.

The surgery starts with general or local anesthetic, depending on what the doctor and patient prefer. Once the area is numbed and the patient is asleep, the surgeon makes tiny incisions inside the nostrils. The cartilage and bone in the nose are then reshaped according to the patient’s preferences. This is done to improve both the look of the nose and the ability to breath. If preferred, a straight septoplasty can be preferred. This is when the bone and cartilage is changed just to improve breathing, but not to improve the cosmetic look of the face.

Plastic surgery among the rich and famous

Because it could be quite on the expensive side, cosmetic and plastic surgeries are often carried out by the rich and famous. Not too long ago, we lost our first lady overseas in the course of going through a plastic surgery. Aside Nigeria, other prominent persons have undergone one or more surgeries, the nose being the most common. Rhinoplasty surgeries are very common in the entertainment industries. Perhaps the best known nose jobs in the world include Michael Jackson’s surgery. Jennifer Grey, the star of the movie Dirty Dancing also got a nose job that is highly infamous in the world of plastic surgery.

As with all plastic surgeries, there are a variety of things that could potentially go wrong with a nose job. They are simply not for everyone. Before you approach plastic surgeons regarding your nose, you should consider if the high cost, pain, and risk are worth the end results. In some cases, a rhinoplasty can be a great thing, but they do not work for everyone. In any case, talk to your doctor about the procedure and the risks involved so you can carefully make the best decisions regarding the look of your nose.

Helpful nose info and your research is great. Promoted.

A little scary area of plastic surgery and expensive as well. Fascinating though!

I totally agree; its really scary stuff. Imagine what these celebs have to go through in the name of beautification and enhancements.

As much as I look in the mirror and think, "I'd love to have this lifted and that line taken out," etc. I would never subject my body to plastic surgery for cosmetic purposes only. It really is scary to even think about. Yes, expensive too. Some entertainers have had great success though and I have a friend who's sister has a face lift three times. (She's not even an entertainer!) Hers has always looked great, but then there are those for whom it just did not come out well. Wouldn't that be a bummer? Great article Daniel. Great research as well. Keep them coming! Votes gone but have buzzed/promoted this one.

Thanks Gerrie, for the contribution and share. I can only imagine the pain and financial implications that some persons go through for a lift or two. Personally, i don't think its worth it.
