Am I a Candidate for Rhinoplasty?August 21, 2014
Rhinoplasty is among the most commonly performed types of plastic surgery. While rhinoplasty procedures, often referred to as nose jobs, are often categorized as a type of cosmetic surgery, this isn’t always the case. Changing the appearance and structure of your nose can also have health benefits, such as making it easier to breathe.
A rhinoplasty procedure can have many benefits to your appearance, level of confidence and even your health. This is, however, something that you should give plenty of thought to before making a decision. It's always a good idea to consult with an expert first. The Arlington plastic surgeons at Chevy Chase Plastic Surgery will listen carefully to your goals in order to make sure you're a good rhinoplasty candidate.
You may be considering rhinoplasty for a variety of reasons. This type of procedure can be helpful for people with conditions such as a deviated septum which make it difficult to breathe. Or you might simply desire to alter the appearance of your nose. In each of these instances, rhinoplasty could be your solution.
Most people are good rhinoplasty candidates if they have a fully developed adult nose, are in good health, and have reasonable expectations for the outcome of their procedure.
