Should I Get Nose Surgery?

Whether you have a nasal hump, a wide nose, or a crooked nose, your dissatisifaction with your nose may wax and wane throughout your life. However, if you are unhappy with the appearance of your nose, you may at some point consider rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty, or changing the shape of the nose, is the second most common plastic surgery after breast augmentation.

It is important to seek a rhinoplasty consultation with an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon. If you have breathing problems due to a deviated septum, enlarged turbinates, or valve collapse, it is important to seek a rhinoplasty surgeon who can treat the functional aspect of your nose in addition to making cosmetic nasal changes.

Ultimately, the decision to have a nose job is yours, but due diligence in choosing your rhinoplasty surgeon is critical. It’s imperative to research the procedure and your surgeon.
