It is a common misconception that people resort to plastic surgery procedures only for purely cosmetic reasons. There are many procedures that, in addition to creating a pleasant physical appearance, also come with important medical benefits.
Rhinoplasty is a perfect example, as it offers a number of surprising health bonuses that can affect the way your body functions, whether you are sleeping or awake.
It helps you breathe better
The nose is not only one of the most prominent focal points on our face, but also serves the important function of regulating the air flow, in cooperation with the mouth. In addition, the nose is responsible for the sense of smell and contributes greatly to the sense of taste. Beyond changing the physical appearance of the nose, rhinoplasty changes the inner workings of the nostrils to help breathing better.
Corrects septal deviation
Rhinoplasty can be used to treat people with a deviated septum. This happens when the cartilage and bone that separates the nostrils is outside the center, which leads to breathing problems. Doctors specializing in plastic and cosmetic surgery are able to realign this important part of the nose and, although it is completely invisible, it can have a significant impact on breathing.
It helps you sleep better
A natural result of breathing problems is poor sleep quality. Sleep apnea is one of the most serious conditions and can lead to a number of serious health problems. Whether it’s a serious problem or (just) a loud snoring, rhinoplasty can help change the airways in the nose to help reduce these risks.
Reduces sinus problems
Some people suffer from sinus irritation due to a nasal infection. Often, rhinoplasty is the only solution to such problems.
In the case of a nasal fracture, there are a variety of side effects that can adversely affect life. A skilled surgeon will be able to align the nose properly, restoring all its important functions and making it look as good as before.
