Rhinoplasty Myths & Rumors – Facts about Nose Jobs

Rhinoplasty procedures (informally known as nose jobs) are performed over 220,000 times each year in the US alone, making them one of the most popular facial plastic procedures performed across the nation. Thanks to this procedure, you can alter the way your nose looks, but you can also enhance its functions, achieve a more balanced facial appearance, and improve your breathing. Rhinoplasty procedures can boost your confidence, improve your health, and even improve the quality of your sleep.

However, over the last years, some limited instances of unnatural-looking rhinoplasty results have given this procedure an undeserved reputation and surrounded it with myths and misconceptions. To understand rhinoplasty myths and rumors, let’s address some of the more common ones surrounding this safe, effective, and natural-looking procedure.

Any Cosmetic Technician Can Perform Rhinoplasties

Whether they are performed using a closed or open approach, rhinoplasties are procedures that will affect how one of your most important sensory organs looks and functions. A high quality rhinoplasty is made even more necessary by the fact that your nose is a highly visible, defining feature of your face. 

For these reasons, and so many others, the only professionals qualified and trained enough to perform this procedure are board-certified surgeons and experts in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery (ABFPRS). Your surgeon should also be able to show you examples of their previous work and certifications. 

Rhinoplasty Results Look Fake

Fake-looking rhinoplasty results are the only visible ones, so they tend to give a bad reputation to the procedure. However, only a small percentage of 5-10% of nose reshaping surgeries are less than 100% successful. And, thanks to today’s innovative techniques, it has become increasingly easier to predict the outcomes of a rhinoplasty

To avoid fake-looking results, you should make sure to pay for the most experienced surgeons who are up to date with the latest techniques and have years of practice under their belts. Before-and-after pictures can tell you a lot about what to expect!

Rhinoplasty is Only For Some People

One of the biggest misconceptions about rhinoplasty is that it is a procedure designed for women. It is true that over 90% of cosmetic surgery patients are women, but it is also true that rhinoplasties represented one of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed in the US in 2020. 

The number of men undergoing this procedure is increasing – and the motivations behind this choice might surprise you. Of course, rhinoplasties are performed for aesthetic reasons, but they can also help people fix deviated septums, free airways, and improve breathing. 

Additionally, rhinoplasty is wrongly considered to be a procedure for wealthy people. The average cost of this procedure in the US is just over $5,400 – and finance options are becoming more and more available. It is important to keep in mind that this procedure is only covered by insurance if it is performed for medical reasons. 

Rhinoplasty is Painful

Of course, the level of pain and discomfort you will feel after a rhinoplasty is specific to your case. Thanks to anesthesia, painkillers, and after-surgery care, the whole procedure is less painful than you would expect. While it is not a pain-free procedure, you will not feel anything during the surgery, and you will only have to deal with manageable discomfort during the recovery period.
