Are you feeling self-conscious about the appearance of your nose? Here’s how to find out if a rhinoplasty is the right cosmetic procedure for you.

What is a Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is a highly popular surgical procedure, carried out for both cosmetic and functional purposes. Common conditions and concerns that can be treated using rhinoplasty include the following:

  • A drooping nose tip
  • A broken nose
  • A deviated septum
  • A nose that is too wide or too narrow
  • A bump or depression on the nose

Following recovery, patients will see dramatic improvements in the appearance of their nose. An improvement in breathing ability and increase in self-confidence is also very common. Patients who follow their surgeon’s post-operative recovery instructions will receive optimal results that will last the course of their lifetime.

10 Signs You’re a Good Candidate For a Rhinoplasty

When performed by a board certified plastic surgeon, a rhinoplasty is a very safe and effective way of correcting any concerns regarding the appearance of your nose. The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for this cosmetic procedure is to attend a consultation with a plastic surgeon.

In general, rhinoplasty candidates usually meet the following criteria:

  1. Their current nose makes them feel self-conscious, unhappy, or uncomfortable in their appearance.
  2. They may be unhappy with the way their nose has changed as they have aged.
  3. They have a deformity, such as a bump or depression on the bridge of the nose, that requires correcting.
  4. They are the right age. It is often recommended that patients wait until at least the md-teens before considering a rhinoplasty. This is because the nose stops growing and changing significantly at this time.
  5. Patients are well-adjusted and have reasonable expectations about the outcomes of the surgery. In general, the best candidates want to improve the way they look, not look perfect.
  6. They fully understand what is involved with the procedure and prepare for it accordingly. For example, patients will require to take time off after surgery to recover and they will have to be careful about their level of activity. (What to Expect From a Rhinoplasty Recovery Period >)

  8. They are aware of both the benefits and risks of rhinoplasty and have made a fully informed decision that this surgery is right for them.
  9. Patients are non-smokers or have shown that they can stop smoking for a prolonged period of time.
  10. They are healthy with no serious medical conditions or illnesses.
