First Things First
Generally speaking, the medical term rhinoplasty is used to explain the different surgical procedures for the nose including the fixing of nasal malformations, re-shaping the nose, or making slight modifications to ease any obstructions that are causing problems in/with the nose. In common layman terms, this nose surgery is called the nose job. On the other hand, the rhinoplasty that is carried out for the sole purpose of improving the physical appearance of the patient is called cosmetic rhinoplasty. The surgery involves restructuring the bone and cartilage of the nose. At times, the soft tissues are also being fixed. Through this aesthetic procedure, it is also possible to:
1. Either reduce or increase the size of your nose
2. Alter the shape of your nose bridge or the tip
3. Leveling the lump on the bridge
4. Improve the position of your nose
5. Make your nostrils thinner
With all of the changes that can be made, it must be emphasized that it is not workable to imitate the nose of your favorite celebrity since a successful operation is always based on the surgical plan which was devised according to what you need and the condition of your nose (i.e. different patients, different results). Likewise, it is a good idea to talk to your surgeon before going through the surgery because important things concerning the rhinoplasty must be settled and discussed first. For instance, the workings and appearance of your nose must be considered so that the doctor can make a plan on how to restructure your nose. Also, the discussion is important in order to avoid any problem after the operation. For example, in the conversation, everything will be look at including whether your breathing passageways will be affected when the nose is modified to become smaller.
National Health Service
Cost of aesthetic rhinoplasty is free under the National Health Service but these days, only a smaller number of people are likely to be made available of the free service. Now, to know if you have a chance for this grant, go to a general practitioner first, he will be able to advice and refer you to district NHS for consultation. Outside the NHS, the cost of rhinoplasty will depend on the kind of the required surgery but generally, prices starts from $2,000 up to $3,500. To conclude, aesthetic rhinoplasty aims to help in making your nose look better although it does not guarantee to give you genuine happiness and triumph in all facets of your life. Therefore, your expectations from the surgery must be convincing and admit to yourself that what the nose job can do for you is only limited to some extent, in both physical and emotional aspects.
