5 Reasons Rhinoplasty Is the Most Requested Plastic Surgery

Rhinoplasty San Diego

According to the most recent Plastic Surgery Statistics Report, rhinoplasty is the most popular aesthetic surgery in the United States. Therefore, it makes sense that Dr. Moneer Jaibaji, San Diego and La Jolla’s leading plastic surgeon, performs many nose reshaping surgeries each year. In this blog, he explains why rhinoplasty is so popular with his patients.

1. Rhinoplasty Can Do Many Things

Nose reshaping is one of the most customizable forms of plastic surgery. This means that Dr. Jaibaji adjusts his approach to the specific requests of each patient. Some patients want a straighter nose, some want a flatter nose, some want a smaller nose, some want to improve nasal symmetry, some want to change the shape of their nostrils and some want to change the projection of their nasal tip. All these changes — and more — can be achieved with rhinoplasty.

2. The Nose Occupies a Central Position

The nose is the most prominent facial feature as it rests in the middle of the face and extends outward. While other body parts can be accentuated or concealed with certain types of clothing and makeup, the nose is hard to hide. Therefore, people who are unsatisfied with their nose are more likely to choose surgery to address their insecurities.

3. Both Sexes Seek Rhinoplasty

Breast augmentation and Brazilian butt lift are largely for female patients, while gynecomastia surgery and chin augmentation are popular with male patients. However, rhinoplasty appeals to both men and women. With patients of all genders interested in this procedure, this boosts its overall popularity.

4. Recovery Is Not Extensive

Compared to other types of plastic surgery, rhinoplasty has a shorter and easier recovery period. Most of Dr. Jaibaji’s rhinoplasty patients notice their discomfort disappear within a few days. While swelling and bruising are likely, this usually dissipates within a couple weeks. That means that patients feel more comfortable resuming work and social activities sooner. (Cosmetics can be used to conceal bruising too.)

5. Results Last Indefinitely

Most forms of plastic surgery are not considered “permanent” because eventually the aging process undoes the changes achieved with the procedure. Fortunately, that is not the case for rhinoplasty. While the rest of the face loses skin elasticity and develops wrinkles, the nose should maintain its shape. Because rhinoplasty lasts forever and does not require periodic maintenance, many patients view it as a smart investment.

Choose a Quality Plastic Surgeon for Rhinoplasty

Just because rhinoplasty is a popular procedure does not mean that every plastic surgeon is well suited to perform it. Rhinoplasty is considered one of the most challenging cosmetic surgeries, which makes choosing a skilled surgeon with a strong reputation critical. In addition to receiving rave reviews for his rhinoplasty skills, Dr. Jaibaji frequently receives recommendations to perform revision rhinoplasty on patients who were less than thrilled with their results from another surgeon.
