Rhinoplasty for cosmetic and functional deformity correction
Rhinoplasty is the surgical correction of nasal deformities or irregularities. Purpose of the surgery could be either functional or cosmetic correction. The nose is the most noticeable facial feature because of its location. All human noses have a small degree of asymmetry. This asymmetry is never noticed by others. Any asymmetry greater than this appears as a deformity. This degree of deformity is cosmetic alone only in a minority of cases. A degree of functional compromise is often seen in a majority of cases. The patients themselves might not be aware of this compromise in function. This makes rhinoplasty surgery essential for these patients.
Qualities that make the best rhinoplasty surgeons
The best rhinoplasty surgeons have a well honed aesthetic sense. They know what would suit and best balance a patient’s face. For example, an Indian face is very different from a Chinese face. In case of cosmetic correction alone, a particular nasal form might not suit every face. What suits one face might look out of place in another. A patient might want a particular nasal form, which might not suit their face. It might even create breathing problems for the patient. A western nose might not be right for an Indian face. The best rhinoplasty surgeons explain this to the patient. They make the patient understand this. Following this, they then produce a result that exceeds the patient’s expectations.
Functional benefits of rhinoplasty confirmed by long term studies
Research has shown that cosmetic nasal surgery also results in functional benefits. A patient with a crooked nose might have a deviated nasal septum. This could result in breathing difficulties. A patient with a flat nose could have a compressed nasal canal. This too could result in breathing difficulties. Thus, correction of these problems are not cosmetic alone. They also result in functional benefit to the patient. Sleep apnea and daytime somnolence can result from nasal deformities. Correction of the nasal deformity can result in relieving sleep apnea. This in turn leads to relief from daytime somnolence. Rhinoplasty can thus result in an increase in productivity and functionality.
