Rhinoplasty, often referred to as a “nose job,” is not only one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the world, it can also play an important part in fixing many of the causes of breathing difficulties.
Dr Shahidi has performed thousands of rhinoplasty operations for a whole variety of reasons. Here we take a look at some of the common problems that rhinoplasty can treat.
Rhinoplasty is the only way to fix a broken nose. A bad break to the nose can leave it misshapen and also cause breathing problems. Rhinoplasty can reset the bones, returning your nose to its normal appearance and functionality.
When the wall that separates your left and right nasal passages is crooked, bowed or twisted, this is known as a deviated septum. It causes breathing difficulties as it can partially or completely block one or both airways. A deviated septum is one of the main causes of breathing difficulties, which rhinoplasty combined with septoplasty can help fix effectively.
Rhinoplasty can help to fix a number of breathing problems as most of these issues stem from the nose, for example narrow or obstructed nasal passages. Rhinoplasty can fix these problems effectively, helping you to breathe more easily. This is a functional rather than a cosmetic operation and will not change the shape of your nose; however, often the two go hand in hand, as many breathing problems stem from a misshapen nose. In these cases, the appearance of the nose will often be fixed at the same time.
If you have always wanted a bigger nose, rhinoplasty can help you, as Dr Shahidi can enlarge your nose, consulting with you first to make sure you will be happy with the new larger size of your nose.
One of the most common reasons for rhinoplasty is wanting a smaller nose. This is usually a common procedure and will only be performed after a consultation with the doctor, who will discuss the operation carefully with you and ascertain the size and shape of nose that you want.
Many people wanting a thinner nose choose rhinoplasty, as they feel their nose dominates their face. A surgical procedure can slim your nose down and create proportion in your face, while still aiming to retain the important functions of the nose.
A bulbous tip is another common reason for rhinoplasty, where the end of the nose is round and looks enlarged in comparison to the rest of the nose. A rhinoplasty operation can reshape the tip of your nose, making it look more in keeping with the rest of its structure.
Rhinoplasty is often sought to remove a bump in the nose. A lot of people want a smoother profile, and feel a bump in their nose ruins the look of their face. A rhinoplasty procedure can remove the bump in your nose and make it look as even from the side as it does from the front.
If you have always wished you could shorten your nose, rhinoplasty is the obvious answer. Many people dislike the length of their nose, and feel a shorter nose would greatly improve the look of their face. This is achievable with a rhinoplasty procedure.
Another highly common reason for rhinoplasty is to straighten the nose. A misshapen nose can sometimes look unsightly, but can also be a cause of breathing problems. Rhinoplasty can offer you the straight nose you have always wanted.
Choosing to have rhinoplasty is an important and serious decision with permanent results. However, Dr Shahidi will make it easier for you at every stage, consulting thoroughly with you before you decide to go ahead. He also uses computer imaging to show you what your face will look like following your operation. His years of experience performing rhinoplasty mean you can rest assured that your nose will be in safe hands, before, during and after your operation.
