You probably know rhinoplasty as its more common name: nose job. There are many reasons why people get them, most notably to enhance their appearance or as a result of traumatic injury. While cosmetic reasons certainly top the list of reasons, it’s in no way indicative of all rhinoplasty procedures. Dr. Mariam Awada, MD FACS, of Michigan Cosmetic Surgery, performs this common procedure quite frequently and can offer a few benefits that result from a nose job. Improve the shape of the nose. Many people, young and old, are self-conscious about the size of their noses. Either they’re too big in proportion to the face, or they’re too small, too crooked…you name it. It’s important to distinguish between two types of procedures that people often use interchangeably. While rhinoplasty refers to the cosmetic surgery that improves the nose shape, septopasty is the procedure that refers to corrections in nose function. Dr. Mariam Awada is skilled and trained in both procedures for your peace of mind. Easier breathing. If you’ve been to a drug store lately, you’ve probably noticed half an aisle dedicated to breathing easier. There are so many products out there on the market, such as breathing strips, that people utilize just to get a good night’s sleep. It can be quite scary not to be able to get in a good breath, which can lead to a fitful night of sleeping. Some people suffer from deviated septums, for example, that could be corrected with surgery. More relaxing sleep. Likewise, countless Americans suffer from sleep deprivation because they can’t breathe properly. They may have sleep apnea, which is a blockage of the airway that can make a person stop breathing for a few seconds at a time. There are at-home treatments, to be sure, such as CPAP machines, but the wise alternative would be to fix the problem at its source. Look great. If the size and shape of your nose is prohibiting you from feeling confident or enjoying life, it may be time for a free nose job consultation with Dr. Mariam Awada. Studies show that undergoing plastic surgery procedures to address an aesthetic issue can actually improve self-esteem, confidence and happiness in patients.
