New Nose Look Younger

April 4th, 2012

Rhinoplasty is one of the most common elective plastic surgery procedures, second only to breast surgery in popularity.   Nose surgery is most often used to reduce the size of the nose, to change the shape or angle of the tip or to straighten the nasal bridge.  According to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), almost 245,000 patients had elective nose re-shaping surgery. Some of my happiest patients are those that have had rhinoplasty surgery.  Jesse is one of those patients we followed on our blog.   We filmed her surgery and she wrote all about her experience.   She cried with happiness as I took off her splint and showed her the result.   You can check out her video, just click here. A recent study revealed that getting a “nose job” might do more than improve someone’s looks.  The study, which appears in the February issue of the Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery, suggests that the procedure may make patients appear younger on average. Dr. Michael Olding, chief of plastic surgery at George Washington University School of Medicine, questioned whether it’s the remodeled nose, or the patient’s new outlook. “Patients usually come back happier, with more of a smile on their face,” he said.   I happen to agree with Dr. Olding.   I have observed that my patients often experience a boost in self-confidence after undergoing cosmetic surgery nipntucks.  I believe that self-image is powerful in forming the conception that one has of oneself, to include assessment of qualities and personal worth.   The saying, to look good…is to feel good, does seem to have some validity here.
