Why Get Your Nose Operated On When You Like The Way It Looks?

Posted on: 22 August 2019


If you have no issues with your nose, at least on a physical level, you may feel like you don't have to ever have this part of your face operated on. However, sinuplasty, or the operation that revolves around the nasal passages and sinuses of the nose, may be something you need. Even if you like the way your nose looks, it may still require treatment by a specialist. Learn why you may need this type of surgery so you can learn what to expect in getting it done. You should only have your surgical procedure done by a licensed plastic surgeon, and getting multiple consultations about whether you need sinus work done or not is wise.

Here are reasons you should consider getting your nose operated on when you like the way it looks. The results can be pleasing and help you feel better about your appearance and the way you feel.

You cannot breathe through your nose

Are you finding it hard to breathe through your nose? Does your nose feel like it's always stuffed up, or do your nasal passages feel swollen and tight whenever you do try to breathe through your nose? Polyps, scar tissue, or even a broken nose injury from the past can make it harder to breathe through your nose and can lead to a more painful experience overall. If you want to breathe comfortably without using your mouth all the time, talk to a cosmetic surgeon to see if sinuplasty is right for you.

Your nostrils are pinched or uneven

Perhaps you were born with pinched or uneven nostrils, or your nostrils were collapsed as part of another cosmetic procedure you've had in the past. While you may not be entirely bothered by having a breathing problem with your nose and the shape of your nostrils don't bother you physically, you can be at a greater risk than a typical person of having your sinuses collapse or be otherwise damaged if you don't address the problem wholly.

You can have your cosmetic surgeon operate on one or both of your sinuses to give you the results you desire. When you have a sinusitis surgery done, you feel better about the way you look and feel and can have fewer breathing issues with your nose. You may even experience less sinus infections and swelling as a result of having the procedure done as well, so speak to your doctor about this type of treatment.
