Top Myths About Rhinoplasty

Posted on Friday, September 30th, 2016 by Douglas M. Stevens, MD

There are a lot of myths circulating about what rhinoplasty is and isn’t and who gets the surgery. Some people write off the surgery as being completely about vanity, but what they don’t know may change their whole perspective on rhinoplasty. I’m here to clarify all those myths for you so you can make an informed decision about your body.

Here are the top myths about rhinoplasty.

It’s only popular with women.

According to the most recent statistics, this isn’t true. The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery released data in 2015 that showed that procedures on men rose 43 percent over the last five years. The data shows that while men only accounted for 9.7 percent of all cosmetic procedures performed 2014, but they made up 22.4 percent of all rhinoplasty procedures performed that same year.

Rhinoplasty can benefit both men and women. A skilled plastic surgeon can address your concerns with your nose and find a solution that will make you feel happy about your appearance.

Rhinoplasty is all about vanity.

This is an important myth to debunk because rhinoplasty is about more than just fixing a part of your body you don’t like. In a study published by the Journal of Otolaryngology in 2007 titled “Change in Health Status after Rhinoplasty,” researchers found that the overall health status of patients who had rhinoplasty surgery improved after the surgery.

There could be a number of reasons for this. After the surgery, some patients feel inspired to take better care of their bodies. In other instances, they feel less stress and anxiety about their appearance, so they feel better about themselves.

If you’re considering rhinoplasty, don’t feel like you can’t ask questions. Call Douglas M. Stevens M.D. at the Facial Plastic & Laser Center in Fort Myers at 239-481-9292 and schedule a consultation today.
