Rhinoplasty or nose job is one of the most popular types of cosmetic surgery as well as one of the most difficult. Poor surgical technique can lead to deformity because it's such an unforgiving procedure requiring the utmost precision and skill. It's not uncommon for many people to seek a secondary procedure after feeling disappointed with the first.  Choose your surgeon wisely if you want to ensure the best outcome the first time around. The ideal surgeon should not only have technical expertise experience and of course a good bedside manner but it is aesthetic sense as well if you're interested in rhinoplasty.

Before undergoing any medical procedure, it's important to have all of the facts. While nose job has become a highly advanced and very common elective cosmetic surgery, it is no exception.

A nose job isn't just about appearance. It should not be assumed that everyone's seeking a nose job for cosmetic reasons. A nose job is going to at least preserve your good breathing or improve your poor breathing. Some people genuinely need rhinoplasty for health reasons. It can provide a better functioning nose. In addition to a nicer looking one, it can help make nasal breathing easier and relieve discomfort associated with sinus or breathing problems. There is no one-size-fits-all. The definition of a perfect nose is simply one that appears as natural and symmetrical as possible on the face. Even though you might like a specific shape that doesn't necessarily mean that that shape or size will look good on you. It’s important to understand the limitations of surgery and the ideal nose shape and size that will achieve a natural and attractive appearance on your face. The ideal nose should blend into your face naturally.

After breast augmentation, nose reshaping surgery is the second most popular cosmetic surgical procedure. Hundreds of thousands of men and women over the age of 18 get a nose job in the US and Canada every year.  Filler injections are not necessarily safer, in fact, it can actually be more risky than the nose job procedure itself. The injections carry a risk of affecting the arteries located near your eyes and could potentially lead to blindness. Furthermore, it's virtually impossible to achieve an aesthetic improvement with surgery using fillers. Unlike some other cosmetic procedures, there are no external scars with a closed nose job procedure. With an open rhinoplasty there may be a small virtually invisible scar between the nostrils.

Speaking with a trained professional can help you determine which of your goals are feasible and which may not be advisable given the current state of medical technology and plastic surgeries. Furthermore, be aware that revision surgery, while not necessarily common, may be necessary.
