Biggest Myths About Rhinoplasty Surgeryby Ali Issa Plastic Surgery in Dubai
A nose is a prominent facial feature that determines the overall appearance of an individual. Many people are born with some nose deformity or develop it due to accident or trauma. Some may be dissatisfied with the shape or size of their nose and want to enhance it for cosmetic purposes. Thus, rhinoplasty becomes an ideal option for people to repair their nose after injury or correct the problems associated with it. Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic surgery performed to change the shape, size, angle, or nose or to reshape the nasal tip.

Rhinoplasty is one of the oldest plastic surgeries which has its origin in India. The father of plastic surgery, Sushruta, is known to perform rhinoplasty in ancient times for correcting nose deformity. Despite its popularity, many people still hesitate to opt for this procedure due to the many myths associated with the procedure. Some of the common myths related to the rhinoplasty are as follows.
Myth: Rhinoplasty is a painful and fatal procedure
Fact: Any surgical procedure, including anesthesia use, involves some risk, but if the procedure is performed with diligence and expert care, then the risks become minimal. Rhinoplasty is a complex procedure, but it is not painful. The surgery is performed under general/local anesthesia. After the procedure, some people might report flu-like symptoms or congested nose, but these subside with time. Bruising is also common, but the severity of bruising depends upon the skin type. Over-the-counter pain medicines are also provided if the patient feels discomfort after the procedure.
Myth: Nose can be altered to the shape of any favorite celebrity
Fact: Mostly, people who opt for rhinoplasty due to cosmetic reasons want their nose to look like their favorite celebrity's nose shape. But, the patient needs to have realistic expectations. It is not necessary that if a particular nose shape looks good on one person, then it would suit the other person as well. The surgery can be done to enhance the nose shape that adds beauty to the face and not change it dramatically. The nose shape must fit the face, persona, ethnicity, etc. so that it does not look fake.
Myth: Nose job is permanent
Fact: Rhinoplasty indeed provides permanent results, but the patient can adopt revision rhinoplasty if they want more modifications in their nose shape. But, revision rhinoplasty must be done after a certain period. Therefore, it is recommended to consult a certified plastic surgeon specialized in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. The surgeon completely understands the aesthetics of the nose and face and is also aware of the functioning of this complex organ.
Myth: Nose surgery can be covered by insurance
Fact: If the nose surgery is performed to correct deformity, then it might be covered under insurance. But, if performed for cosmetic reasons, then insurance cannot cover it.
Myth: Rhinoplasty cannot be done before the age of 18
Fact: Generally, the surgeon checks the overall general health of the patient before rhinoplasty. But age is not a factor if the procedure is performed for correcting the functionality of the nose that might be hindered due to nose deformity. Also, if the patient has developed a nose completely and wants to opt for rhinoplasty, the surgery can be performed after parental supervision.
