Am I A Good Candidate For Rhinoplasty?

rhinoplasty Rhinoplasty, otherwise colloquially known as a ‘nose job’, is a cosmetic procedure intended to reshape or alter the appearance of the nose when performed. It is a surgical procedure having more to do with proportions and shaping rather than simply applying injections or a couple of incisions with the scalpel. Because of the care and attention to detail required, some may wonder if rhinoplasties are worth the hassle. And, most importantly, if they would even benefit from a rhinoplasty. If this sounds like you, then keep reading!

Is Rhinoplasty Worth The Hassle? 

More than any other cosmetic surgery, rhinoplasties are highly individualized. Not only is it about what you want and how you want the end result to look like but, because as mentioned before, rhinoplasties involve the shaping and proportion of the nose, the whole procedure is relative to you and your face. If working with a caring professional, having the procedure, and then dealing with a moderate recovery period sound like too much for gaining more confidence in your skin, then rhinoplasty may not be worth it for you.

Who Is A Good Candidate For Rhinoplasty? 

Once again, because of how individualized rhinoplasties are, the ultimate factor in determining a good candidate for a rhinoplasty is you and your specific goals. However, in general, for a cosmetic procedure, some aspects that make an ideal candidate are: someone who is physically healthy in order to be able to undergo the rigor of the procedure, even if it is a relatively small one, someone who is not a smoker or is willing to stop for the procedure and recovery process, and someone who has undergone all their facial growth. One more important aspect in determining good candidacy is how a person already feels about themselves: Rhinoplasty can certainly add to a person’s confidence, but it shouldn’t be the reason for their confidence.
