It has been projected that by 2017, the American market for cosmetic surgery will reach $3.2billion dollars. Even with the state of the economy these days, our quest for youth and enhancing our physical appearance has only been exacerbated by the increasing popularity of weight loss and reality television, tougher competition in workplaces, and the ever growing acceptance of elective plastic surgery. But maybe, just maybe, plastic surgery can be worth it when trying to shave off a few years from your looks: The Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery recently published a study that suggests that patients who have had a beverly hills rhinoplasty procedure do indeed look younger- up to 1.5 years younger than their actual ages.
Rhinoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure which aims to restore the functions of the nose and to aesthetically enhance the nose by correcting and reconstructing the form of it. Most rhinoplasty Beverly Hills patients share the same goal: to have a nose that is more attractively shaped and proportioned. It has been estimated that there were 243, 772 nose reshaping/rhinoplasty procedures done in 2011, making it the second most sought after cosmetic procedure; the first being breast augmentation.
A recent poll amongst rhinoplasty patients has shown that almost 80% of the patients were satisfied with their appearance after the operation. Perhaps this is due to the new technological developments made on the plastic surgery forefront. One new development is a Swiss technology called Crisalix, which is the first web-based simulator to use 2-D pre-op photo to create an accurate 3-D view of what the patient would look like post-op. Allowing the patient to view what their faces will look like beforehand gives them a sense of comfort as they can clarify desires and expectations, which lead to better overall post-op contentment.
So, if you do not like your nose, don’t hold back from doing what you need to do to become comfortable with yourself. The first step after you have decided that you are going to do something about your nose is to find an expert plastic surgeon. By viewing multiple before and after pictures of their patients you can get an understanding of how many patients the doctor has worked with, as well as the artistic ability they have when it comes to forming a nose that fits the patients face and compliments there other features.
