So You’re Thinking About Getting a Nose Job

You’re not alone. More people want to change the shape of their nose today than any time in the past 10 years. Nice to know, but the first thing you’re probably thinking is,” do I need a nose job?” (Or rhinoplasty as it is referred to medically.) There is a big difference between need, and want. Want has to do with how you feel about the nose you have now. If hours and hours of mirror time leave you wanting and distressed, a nose job could help make you feel more confident. It can fix many things: a bump at the bridge of the nose, a nose that is too wide or narrow, a nose that is twisted, a nasal tip which is round, bulbous, fatty, drooping or disproportionate to the rest of the face.

Getting a Deviated Septum Fixed Wouldn’t Be Called a Nose Job

The nose has an aesthetic and functional purpose. A deviated septum, which refers to the functional side, is referred to as septohinoplasty. It refers to surgery on the septum of the nose. The septum is a leading cause of nasal airway obstruction and breathing difficulties, and this type of nose surgery can correct it.

Know This: Nose Jobs Aren’t What They Used to Be

The nature of nose jobs is changing big time. There is a much broader definition today of what is attractive. “Perfection” is in the past. Today’s millennials are opting for a “less is more” philosophy.” It’s not about changing your look, but rather enhancing it. Maintaining your individuality and character, keeping the look that makes “you”, you. Not some celebrity look-alike.

Do Men Get Nose Jobs?

More than ever, gender equality works both ways. And that includes men opting for many different types of plastic surgery, of which nose jobs are at the top of the list. Like women, they want to feel more comfortable in their own skin, and a nose job that can refine what bothers them, can do a lot for their self-esteem. One of the most important aspects of nose jobs in men is to maintain masculinity and not leave them with a feminine appearance. This takes a uniquely trained and experienced plastic surgeon with a keen understanding of this, and the skill to deliver the desired results.

Help! I’m Not Happy with the Old Nose Job I Had

There was a time when Barbi-perfect nose jobs were de rigour. And then there was the ever-popular, and now ever-despised “ski slope” or “button nose.” Each, entirely unnatural. With the notion of “perfection” passé, more and more people are embracing revision nose jobs to correct these, and are returning to plastic surgeons’ offices to regain the facial character they lost. Fortunately, with the right surgeon, the results can become more natural and appealing.

How Much Time Will I Have to Take off Work?

Every individual recovers differently when it comes to the time and healing process. Nose jobs are complex surgical procedures with a surprisingly brief recovery period required before returning to your regular routine. This might be hard to imagine when you see yourself post-surgery. You can expect what might seem shocking swelling and bruising. It would seem hard to envision, but within a week or two, your surgery probably won’t be obvious to the general public. Your surgeon should detail and discuss post-surgery instructions to make the transition as smooth as possible.

Rhinoplasty – The mirror doesn’t lie.

Rhinoplasty: Often called “nose job”, rhinoplasty is a facial cosmetic procedure usually performed to enhance the appearance or reconstruct the nose.

“Honker, Schnoz, I’ve Heard it All.”

My nose isn’t just huge, it hooks over at the end. It doesn’t matter that I have nice eyes or great hair, even high cheekbones…it’s always embarrassed me and to say it tanks my self-esteem is understatement. I’ve been listening to nose jokes since I was little. And it never stops hurting. People can really be cruel and I’m so tired of it. I can’t get away from how my nose looks and how it distorts my whole face. I need to change it. It’s not that I’m looking for perfection, but a nose that fits the rest of me, and makes me feel more confident.

“It’s the First Thing You See.”

I got my father’s nose. (Thanks, Dad) It’s really wide and stretches across my face actually making my nostrils show. To have conversations, to trade smiles, to confront issues, you have to look someone in the face. You can’t hide it. I hate when I have to give presentations at work. I avoid taking phots at all costs; I don’t have a good side. I can’t imagine a guy wanting to talk to me, let alone kiss me. It’s gross, and no one can tell me otherwise. Am I neurotic about it? I won’t lie. “Yes. Absolutely.” And I really believe it’s for good reason. Wanting to change it, doesn’t make me a vain person, it just makes me want to feel comfortable in my own skin.

“You’ll Grow Into It.”

Parents will tell you anything. They love you and think you’re beautiful. I’m only in high school, but there’s a hump on my nose like a camel. My girlfriends are always comparing notes on what they hate about their bodies, and noses comes up at the top of the list.  One friend has a ski slope, another a teeny button with a tip at the end. It bothers us all.  Regardless of my age, I’m mature enough to know what I want and what the process involves. I’ve told my parents over and over I want to have it fixed and over and over I hear, “ you’re not getting a nose job! It’s part of who you are.” I cry a lot. Then I cry more. I sulk, I keep begging. If I could only convince them to go with me to get a consultation, it would be a huge step. That isn’t asking too much, is it?

“Forget Looking Like Barbara Streisand.”

Her nose made Hollywood history. She’s supposed to be a role model for having a nose that’s strong and regal. What does that mean?  My profile is never going to be a star. And speaking of stars, if you Google celebrity noses, (doesn’t everyone Google everything?) other celebs like Claire Danes, Viola Davis, Lea Michele and even Giselse Bundchen are applauded for imperfections most anyone would aspire to want. I’d never walk into a doctor’s office with their pictures and say, “give me this nose, please.” Actually, although I’ve heard people do, I’d never walk in with pictures of anyone else. I’m realistic. And that’s the kind of nose I want. One that fits who I am and how I feel inside.

“It Has to be Right.”

When you think about it, what needs to be perfect is the doctor who performs the surgery.  Rhinoplasty is pretty complex. Not only does your nose have to match your face, but each part of the nose has to be in harmony with the rest. Choosing the right surgeon isn’t like getting a general contractor to do complicated plumbing or electrical work. A detailed overview of getting a nose job is essential. A millimeter or two can make a huge difference in the result. I actually didn’t have to search like a manic to find the right doctor. Dr. Thomas A. Narsete’s name kept coming up. He’s so understanding. He gets the whole picture. He has unmatched skills. His results are so natural. One friend actually called him “a genius”. Well, I’m going to be a genius and call for an appointment now.
