There is a common public perception that a nose job is only a cosmetic procedure. In reality, rhinoplasty can also be used as a therapeutic procedure to treat certain medical conditions. It can be used to achieve a lot more than merely changing the physical appearance of the nose. We have provided a list of medical conditions that rhinoplasty is able to drastically improve by correcting anatomical defects of the nose. If you are considering a nose surgery, have a look at the following benefits.
Improve The Ability To Breathe
You may have been born with a congenital condition that makes it difficult to breathe through your nose due to misalignment of your nasal septum. You may not have noticed the condition because you assumed that your breathing is normal and did not know that your breathing is not as efficient as it could be. Sometimes, you may unconsciously breathe orally which may somewhat correct your breathing. In these situations, a Septorhinoplasty surgery, (a combination of cosmetic and anatomical changes to the nose) can do far more than just change your physical appearance.
Better, Refreshing Sleep
Have you ever noticed that after sleeping for a significant number of hours, you still wake up feeling not well rested? Such symptoms are most commonly associated with obstruction of the nasal passage. Ask your significant other to observe you sleep overnight, he or she may notice symptoms such as deep snoring, gasping for breath, and signs of breathing through the mouth. Septorhinoplasty can correct the anatomy to make it easier for you to breathe easily while sleeping and rest soundly.
Most people don’t associate their breathing efficiency with their mood. In fact, difficulty breathing can have a lasting impact on your mood by restricting proper oxygen flow to your brain. Thus, it can result in some noticeable changes in your mood including increased irritability, depression, and anxiety. This is believed to be the result of stress and lack of energy resulting from ineffective sleep.
