Getting a nose job: Is it worth it?

Rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job, is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures, in Red Bank and around the world. In 2017 alone, nearly 219,000 people across the United States opted for this procedure to reshape and change the contours and appearance of the nose. Rhinoplasty is a personal, individual decision, and at Rowe Plastic Surgery, our board-certified Red Bank plastic surgeons take pride in helping you to achieve a beautiful, natural appearance that reflects your aesthetic goals. Only you can determine whether rhinoplasty is worth it for you, but there are several things to keep in mind when making your decision.

Understanding Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty can help you to change many things about the physical appearance of your nose. In some cases, rhinoplasty can also address health issues like breathing problems or a deviated septum. Whether you feel your nose is too big or too small, want to address a bump or bend in the slope of your nose, seek to reshape the tip of the nose or simply feel that a different nasal appearance would be more flattering for your face, rhinoplasty may help to address your concerns. At Rowe Plastic Surgery, our surgeons know that small changes can dramatically help you to achieve your vision for your face while producing a natural, beautiful appearance.

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your nose and want to make a change, a rhinoplasty performed by a qualified facial plastic surgeon in New Jersey can help you achieve your goals, boosting your confidence and improving your self-image.

Are you a good candidate for rhinoplasty?

If you are considering nose surgery, contact our Red Bank office for a consultation with a New Jersey plastic surgeon. Your surgeon can review your medical history and examine your nose, discussing the results you could achieve with rhinoplasty. There are a few factors that can generally determine whether you are a good candidate for a nose job.

In the first place, your facial bones should have stopped growing; that is, you should be at least 16 years old. You should also be in generally good health, not dealing with any other medical conditions that could interfere with surgery and recovery. If you are a smoker, you should refrain from smoking for a month before your surgery in order to improve your results and recovery. It is also important that you have positive goals and a realistic vision for what you can achieve with rhinoplasty. Plastic surgery should always be performed for yourself in order to achieve your own goals for your appearance.

Preparing for your rhinoplasty and recovery

The right time for rhinoplasty is a deeply personal choice. For the best results, it’s important to schedule your nose surgery after you have stopped growing. Nose surgery comes with a 7 to 10-day recovery period, so keep this in mind when planning your surgery. You may want to schedule your rhinoplasty before a major life event, whether you are planning to get married, start university or begin a new job, or you may opt for a quieter moment for the procedure.

After your surgery, you will need to take one to two weeks away from work and school for recovery, and most of your swelling should subside within two to three weeks. Your surgeon can provide you with precise instructions to assist in your recovery.

When determining whether a nose job is worth it for you, examine your goals for the procedure and your potential rhinoplasty schedule as well as considering the financial costs. Rhinoplasty can result in significant benefits and improved quality of life for many patients in Red Bank.
