4 Signs You’re Ready for Rhinoplasty

Woman thinking about getting a rhinoplasty

Plastic surgery is more than just a medical procedure—it’s both a physical and emotional transformation. Your appearance is a constant factor in your day to day life. And if you feel uncomfortable putting your best face forward, it can negatively affect you in unexpected ways.

Do you dislike the appearance of your nose? In this post, we’ll highlight a few signs that nose reshaping could help you live more confidently. If any of these issues sound familiar, rhinoplasty surgery at our Louisville, KY, practice might be a fantastic solution to your concerns.

You only take photos from certain angles

Thanks to cell phones and selfies, we’re all more familiar with our flattering angles. If you’re always adjusting the camera—or needing to show your “good side” in a picture—it might be due to asymmetry.

When our nose or face isn’t naturally balanced, our subconscious always notices. But when everything is even and aligned, our brains interpret that as attractive. Rhinoplasty can fix a crooked nose or adjust its appearance on the face. Your face will begin to look more pleasing from every side and angle.

You strategically contour your nose with makeup

Makeup is an easy way to conceal imperfections. But if you’re pulling out a contour pallet before every big event, rhinoplasty might be a better long-term solution.

Even though makeup can trick the eye for a night or two, it doesn’t change the structure underneath. Rhinoplasty will give you real results—without the need for makeup or other pricey products. Add more time to your day and toss out the contour brush.

Your nose is the first thing you notice when you look in the mirror

Your nose is a primary feature of your face. If it’s oversized or misshapen, it might draw your eye every time you see your reflection.

No one wants to feel distracted or uncomfortable with their appearance. Rhinoplasty can refine your nose into a more subtle, pleasing shape. With the help of surgery, your face will look more balanced and beautiful. Your eyes or kind smile will finally have a chance to shine.

You feel as though your nose is holding you back   

Confidence impacts every area of your life. Be it in the boardroom or on a date, you want to feel empowered and self-assured. Don’t let your nose be a constant worry. After rhinoplasty, your nose will no longer be holding you back.

When you don’t have to think about your appearance, you can instead just live in the moment. Rhinoplasty results are long-lasting and rarely require any follow-up care. After a single surgery, you’ll be able to feel comfortable with your looks in a way that you may not have experienced before cosmetic nose surgery.

And lastly, a final reminder: when considering rhinoplasty, it’s always important to discuss your concerns and goals with a board-certified plastic surgeon. During a one-on-one consultation, your doctor can provide you with experienced guidance. Together, you can create a plan for successful, satisfying results.
