Reasons for Getting a Nose Job

Posted .

There are many different reasons why you might be thinking of getting cosmetic surgery on your nose. A nose job, also known as rhinoplasty, could be an option for cosmetic as well as medical reasons.

If an accident or injury has caused you to lose some function in breathing through your nose or causes discomfort, you will want to investigate your options. In some cases, the problem can be rectified without surgical intervention.

A cleft lip or cleft palate is also a very common reason why someone might need rhinoplasty. In these cases, the procedure can help improve breathing as well as eating.

Chronic nasal allergies and allergies that have gone untreated for a long period of time can also lead to severe inflammation that compromises a person’s ability to breathe.

Nasal burns from certain sources and broken bones in the nose and face can cause deformations in the nose itself. This can sometimes have a very serious impact on a person’s self-esteem as well as the overall function of their nose.

Brain tumors that have been surgically removed can sometimes require other tissues to be removed. This can sometimes affect the nose or its relationship to other parts of the face.
