5 Rhinoplasty Myths Debunked!

Nose reconstruction surgeries, also known as rhinoplasty, is continuously becoming one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. In 2011, the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery revealed that there were about 120,000 patients seeking nose reshaping surgeries alone. Nose Surgery Surgeon Dr. Larry Weinstein offers his surgical expertise to men and women wanting to aesthetically enhance their appearance through a New Jersey rhinoplasty procedure.

Despite its popularity, there are several myths associated with nose surgeries. The truth behind them are revealed one by one below.

1. Rhinoplasty could be performed by anyone who calls himself a surgeon.
This is actually true. Anyone who is licensed to perform surgeries can do a rhinoplasty. However, keep in mind that surgeons have their own fields of expertise. A nose reconstruction surgery is an intricate procedure which involves complicated passageways housing bones, cartilages and other nasal structures. Why not specifically seek the services of a rhinoplasty specialist instead?

2. Any nose surgery is relatively painful.
This is actually false. There is actually no pain involved in rhinoplasty due to use of anesthesia. Dr. Weinstein will perform nasal surgeries either through general or local anesthesia, depending on the extent and requirements of your specific condition. General anesthesia will keep you completely asleep while local anesthesia will specifically numb the operated area. Swelling and bruising may be observed for the first 2 weeks, reaching their peak for the first 2 to 3 days following surgery.

3. Rhinoplasty is only for women.
Although women takes about 91 percent of the cosmetic surgeries performed in 2011, it is interesting to note that rhinoplasty ranks second amongst the top 5 surgeries performed in men on the same year. Male patients often seek rhinoplasty to narrow wider noses, remove bumps or create a more symmetrical shape.

4. Almost anyone will be able to figure out if I have nose surgery.
On a whole, your family and other close friends who are already familiar with your looks may notice the difference. However, most people will not be able to figure out that you had just a nose job.

5. A nose job will make me look stiff and expressionless.
This is not true. Your facial muscles will not be affected nor touched during rhinoplasty thus you are expected to frown, smile or display other facial expression without any problems at all.
