Rhinoplasty – the cosmetic surgeon’s term for a ‘nose job’

Rhinoplasty – the cosmetic surgeon’s term for a ‘nose job’

The word rhinoplasty always seems to be associated with the word rhinoceros and, as a consequence, the word is one my patients struggle to come to terms with. Nose job on the other hand seems far more preferable, so while it isn’t my professional choice, I understand the need. Here in Bristol I regularly perform rhinoplasty nose surgery and far a great variety of patients, many of whom have very different reasons for requiring this form of plastic surgery. You should also note that it is becoming very popular with men nowadays, not just women. It is fair to say that a great number of rhinoplasty procedures I perform here in Bristol are as a result of personal psychological discomfort. It is so sad that cruel remarks made during our childhood can scar us for later on in life, and having a large nose or ears that stick out are prime targets for malicious barbs.

However it should come as no surprise to learn that certain rhinoplasty nose operations I perform here in Bristol are done so as a result of personal injury. Once again as humans we are all very different, and while you may not know that one person has broken their nose three times without needing surgery, it is plainly obvious with others that at one time or another, they have broken their nose. Fortunately nose surgery can provide the solution and restore confidence which also can take a knock when your nose does. Of course there is then the question of being able to breathe freely. Once again this can either become compromised as we grow older, or as a result of injury, and rhinoplasty, or nose surgery can prove an invaluable solution to the discomfort not being able to breathe easily through your nose.
