Health Benefits of Rhinoplasty

Dr. Philip Miller

October 12, 2021

Undergoing rhinoplasty or a “nose job” is not always about vanity. There can be essential cosmetic and functional concerns when considering this procedure. While electing to have rhinoplasty to enhance your appearance is a valid reason to undergo surgery, there are several other medical and psychological reasons for someone to have a nose job. Rhinoplasty can also provide life-changing outcomes for someone with breathing difficulties or those encountering bullying due to their appearance.

Considered one of the country’s leading experts in rhinoplasty and facial rejuvenation, plastic surgeon Dr. Philip Miller can help you achieve a nose you will love. Whether by reshaping the nose to complement and enhance your natural beauty and facial symmetry or restoring its functionality by correcting any structural abnormalities that are obstructing your nasal passages, Dr. Miller can help you meet your goals. His approach combines art and science with skill and innovation to provide patients in Manhattan, New York, superior results that exceed expectations.

What are the Health Benefits of Rhinoplasty Surgery?

While rhinoplasty is an effective procedure for nose reshaping in men and women, it also provides several health benefits that may surprise you. Without a doubt, a nose job can enhance your unique attractiveness, but rhinoplasty can impact your physical and emotional health too. Here’s a look at some of the benefits a rhinoplasty procedure provides:

Physical Health Benefits of Rhinoplasty

Numerous bones and delicate cartilage make up the nose, and any mechanical issue may prevent adequate airflow, affecting your breathing and health. Genetics, accidents, and injuries can cause many nasal problems, which rhinoplasty can successfully resolve.

Improve Sleep

If you’ve been suffering from restricted airflow, you know how this issue can affect your sleep. When some form of nasal issue is causing your breathing problems, rhinoplasty can improve your breathing and sleeping patterns by surgically solving the problem.

Fix a Broken Nose

A broken nose may not only alter your nose’s appearance but create breathing problems as well. In Manhattan, New York, Dr. Miller can help those who have suffered a broken nose by repairing the fracture. He will reset the nose, correct any fractures with spreader grafts, and restore the septum (the structure that separates the left and right nasal passages) if needed with a septoplasty. Repairing the nose can improve both appearance and function.

Reduce Sinus Issues

Deformities in the nasal passages can also lead to sinus problems. Rhinoplasty will not only help drain mucus buildup but also straighten a twisted or deviated septum, providing more comfort while breathing.

Prevent Symptoms of Sleep Apnea

Snoring is often caused by blocked nasal airways. It is also a symptom of sleep apnea – a sleeping disorder that can lead to serious health problems, including high blood pressure and heart problems if left untreated. While sleep apnea is more common in overweight people, restricted airflow is a known contributing factor too. Functional rhinoplasty allows Dr. Miller to clear the nasal passage to relieve congestion and reduce the effects of sleep apnea. To learn more, please visit

Emotional Health Benefits of Rhinoplasty

However, for those who consistently feel self-conscious about how they look, or worse, are bullied for failing to pass society’s beauty standards, the pressure can negatively affect how they see themselves. A rhinoplasty can improve the look of the nose, along with the stigma associated with having an unattractive appearance.

Greater Success in Professional and Personal Relationships

Because a successful rhinoplasty boosts your self-esteem, it can also open up a world of new opportunities, both professionally and personally. With your newfound confidence, you can navigate daily challenges to make the most of every opportunity. You may even gain the courage to go after a promotion or pursue a new career path.

Rhinoplasty can also improve your social life. When you let your personality shine through instead of feeling anxious about your physical traits, you will have an easier time establishing relationships with others. Improved interactive skills can lead to a livelier social life and deeper personal relationships overall.

No More Bullying

Many children and teens become victims of bullying due to physical imperfections, such as a large or prominent-looking nose. While surgeons typically don’t recommend rhinoplasty for minors, they can perform the procedureon teenagers once their noses have fully developed. For teens battling insecurities and anxiety, rhinoplasty may be a solution. Correcting a crooked or oversized nose can stop bullying and teasing, significantly improving a teen’s confidence. 

It is important to note that people should never change their appearance based on how others perceive them. Succumbing to society’s pressure to look a certain way may lead others to get plastic surgery for the wrong reasons. While rhinoplasty provides many benefits, it is not a miracle cure for all of life’s problems. Those who go into surgery with healthy perspectives and realistic expectations are happiest with their results.
