No matter why someone selects rhinoplasty, there are several benefits to the surgery. Dr. M. Sean Freeman, Charlotte’s best rhinoplasty surgeon has helped thousands of patients realize an improved quality of life through rhinoplasty. A few of these benefits include:
- Easier breathing
- Better and more refreshing sleep
- Increased self-esteem
The simple act of taking a deep breath through the nose is a difficult prospect for many people. It may even be impossible if the nose is blocked by a misshapen septum or some other type of deformity. If the septum which is the structure separating the two nasal cavities is deformed or injured, a person may not be able to breathe at all through their nose. A skilled and qualified facial plastic surgeon such as Dr. Freeman can correct these issues by reshaping the inner nose. This results in the patient being able to breathe normally, perhaps for the first time in their lives.
Most individuals require between 8 and 10 hours of restful, deep sleep every night. This is necessary for maintaining good health. A lack of quality sleep can result in a myriad of issues, including memory problems and physical deterioration. There are certain nasal structural issues which can cause sleep apnea, loud, excessive snoring, or other types of breathing difficulties. Any of these can make a good night’s sleep nothing but a dream. Rhinoplasty performed by a skilled surgeon can help eliminate these types of common sleep problems. A qualified facial plastic surgeon can perform certain procedures during a rhinoplasty which help reshape the inner nasal passageway resulting in improved breathing and the ability to completely rest at night.
Increased self-confidence and self-esteem
There is no way to get around it. The nose is the central focal point on our face. If a person does not like their nose or if something about their nose and other facial features makes them self-conscious, their self-esteem is likely to suffer. One of the quickest and best ways to improve the facial appearance is a rhinoplasty. Dr. Freeman performs rhinoplasty surgery at his Charlotte NC clinic, meeting with the patient for an initial consultation to ensure the patient has all the information they need to make a decision about rhinoplasty surgery.
A good candidate for rhinoplasty
Deciding to have rhinoplasty is a very personal decision. If an individual is struggling with self-esteem issues or physical ailments because of the shape or size of their nose, a rhinoplasty can literally be a life-changing procedure. According to Dr. Freeman, ideally, a rhinoplasty patient is healthy and the nose is completely formed and finished growing. This typically is between ages 14 to 16 for women and ages 16 to 18 for men. In Charlotte NC, Dr. M. Sean Freeman performs rhinoplasty at his clinic, The Center for Facial and Plastic Laser Surgery.
