Many Chicago residents who are concerned about the appearance of their nose may be good candidates for a nose job. It is understandable that people are concerned about the appearance of their nose since it is one of the most prominent features on the face. Just a small misalignment or a small defect of the nose can create dramatic facial imbalance. It is understandable that this can affect a person’s self-confidence and self-esteem.
Sadly, teasing about a crooked, large, or small nose usually begins in grade school. Children and teens are often teased by their peers about the appearance of their nose. The insecurities about the appearance of one’s nose that began as a child can stick with a person for the rest of their life. For this reason, some adults in Chicago shy away from social settings. The only way to permanently change the appearance of your nose is via a nose job.
What is a Nose Job?
A nose job, or rhinoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to change the appearance of the nose. Rhinoplasty can be used to correct a deformity caused by trauma, an accident, or a birth defect. It can be used to take a bulbous nose and bring it down to a size and shape that is proportional with the rest of the face.
Rhinoplasty can be used to remove a large hump on the bridge of the nose as well as adjust the size of the nostrils. This procedure can also be used to help individuals who have a breathing problem. Most breathing problems caused by the nose are due to a structural defect in the nose. Interestingly, the same structural defect that affects a person’s breathing often affects the appearance of the nose. So even when rhinoplasty is performed for functional reasons, the patient often experiences an improvement in the appearance of their nose.
