In the September 2015 issue of Seventeen Magazine, Iggy Azalea discussed her recent nose surgery, becoming one of the thousands of patients who opt for rhinoplasty each year.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons 2014 Plastic Surgery Statistics Report, more than 217,000 rhinoplasty procedures were performed last year. It remains one of the five most popular surgical procedures, sitting at number two, just after breast augmentations.
Making it both similar to and different from other cosmetic surgeries, rhinoplasty is often performed to fix problematic breathing conditions or alleviate stress often associated with bullying that patients may suffer because their nose is bigger than they would like or shaped in an unappealing manner.
Dual-board certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. James Marotta of Marotta Plastic Surgery Specialists has specialized training in nasal surgery, which enables him to achieve the highest and most functional breathing results.
Many patients undergo a rhinoplasty for a number of different reasons, including better facial proportions and appearance, restoring appearance after an injury or correcting breathing issues. Often, septal surgery and a rhinoplasty are combined to fulfill these desires. By straightening a deviated septum and reshaping the nose to achieve a more pleasing appearance, a Septorhinoplasty allows patients to obtain the best results possible.
In addition to a normal rhinoplasty routine, Dr. Marotta also has experience performing surgeries to fix fractured noses. If after a nasal fracture occurs your nose is crooked or you experience issues breathing, having a revision surgery within one to two weeks of the break can make a huge difference.
As with any major surgery, be sure you understand each part of the procedure and how it will affect your overall outcome. To lean more about a rhinoplasty or other nose surgery, schedule a consultation with us or visit our website.
