In addition to allowing the nose to better blend into the face, thus bringing out the eyes and lips, rhinoplasty can also improve the nasal airway, helping people breath better through their nose.
Irvine, CA (PRWEB) February 21, 2012
At his Orange County facial plastic surgery practice, Dr. Ali Sepehr says patients who undergo a rhinoplasty procedure to enhance the appearance of their nose may also receive an added benefit of looking younger as well. Rhinoplasty is one of the most commonly performed facial plastic surgery procedure according to the recently released 2011 statistics from the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS). Dr. Sepehr, who was recently published in the Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery to discuss the effects of rhinoplasty on the appearance of one’s age, says his Irvine rhinoplasty patients are often surprised as their nose heals and they begin feeling more youthful and confident.
Dr. Sepehr says recent findings suggest rhinoplasty may make patients appear on average 1.5 years younger than before the procedure. In a study that looked at before and after photos of patients who had undergone rhinoplasty, observers were asked to estimate the ages of patients in the pictures based on their facial appearance. While he says 1.5 years is not necessarily a significant effect, Dr. Sepehr stresses that when partnered with another cosmetic procedure such as BOTOX in Irvine, patients can experience an added bonus of a noticeably younger face and more refreshed facial vibrancy. “The main of goal of rhinoplasty is to make the nose more proportional to the face. Oftentimes the characteristics that are changed to improve this harmony, are also stigmata of an aging nose, such as a bump or a droopy tip. This is how rhinoplasty rejuvenates the nose and face.”
Whether patients are looking to reduce the signs of aging on their face or restore structural harmony to facial proportions, Dr. Sepehr urges anyone considering rhinoplasty to consult with a board-certified and experienced facial plastic surgeon before undergoing any procedure. He says careful attention to detail and a skilled hand can help patients improve their appearance by looking younger and more confident. “In addition to allowing the nose to better blend into the face, thus bringing out the eyes and lips, rhinoplasty can also improve the nasal airway, helping people breath better through their nose. A board certified facial plastic surgeon is not only the most qualified surgeon to deal with the aesthetic and cosmetic shape of the nose, but also has the most in-depth knowledge of the detailed internal anatomy, so as to improve and not decrease the nasal airway.”
