Makings of a Good Rhinoplasty Candidate

Who are best candidates for nose job?

There are a lot of people out there who are not content with their own body. For some, this dissatisfaction is so extreme that they are ready and willing to subject themselves to corrective surgery. However, this is not always the best solution and there are several factors that need to be considered before choosing to go with the invasive procedure. Each surgery has its own issues, and rhinoplasty, as one of the most common, is no exception. Because of this, here are some makings that will help you determine if you are a good rhinoplasty candidate.

Age

Like with any other surgery, the age of the patient is something that must be considered. Seeing how our body grows throughout our adolescence, rhinoplasty is not recommended before the age of 16. Around this age, nose finishes with its development and can be operated on without causing any long-term trouble. On the other hand, as it is only logical, there is no top age boundary for rhinoplasty. After the age of 16, as far as the age factor is concerned, there are no limitations. One thing that is much more important is the current health of the patient. Needless to say, any kind of invasive procedure is a risk and to withstand it, one must be in impeccable health condition.

Motivation

Unfortunately, a surgeon can never know the true motivation behind someone’s desire to get a nose job. If the ultimate goal is improvement of one’s self-confidence through this physical-appearance-boost, then it is a valid choice by all means. Even though our bodies are nothing to be ashamed of, some people are quite delicate about their physical “flaws” and would give anything in the world to rectify them. On the other hand, it would be foolish of one to subject themselves to a surgery just because their peers or family pressures them into doing this. The motivation behind this choice must always be intrinsic.

Long Term Wish

Apart from motivation, your decision-making timing is another thing that matters. If you are in the middle of an emotional crisis, due to a strained relationship or a breakup, it might not be the best time for you to decide on whether you should alter your body. Being distressed is really not a perfect time to be making these kinds of choices. Keep in mind that what is done on your nose is permanent and can be changed only with another surgery. There are, of course, people who dream of this procedure for years, which is the only proper background for rhinoplasty to begin with.

Hard Time Breathing

Finally, even though we already mentioned that your appearance can be important, it should never be your primary concern. No aesthetical alteration should ever come before your health. In this light, there are also people who want to do rhinoplasty because they have a hard time breathing through their nose. Unfortunately, this particular trouble may seem so minor to them that they avoid dealing with it, because of the fear of the surgery. What they usually don’t know is that there is also such a thing as a non-surgical nose job. Although it may not seem that way initially, the difference in lifestyle quality is usually quite noticeable.

Your health always comes first and if there is anything you intend to do that could challenge it (even if the chance is absurdly small), you need to do your share of research first. Next, you need to ask yourself a few questions that will determine how much (and if) you need this particular procedure. If all your answers come back positive, then by all means, carry on with your plans. A popular proverb claims that without pain, there can’t be any gain (this part is somewhat true), but you should always choose the option that causes you as little pain as possible. If you don’t take care of your own body, no one will.
