Most cosmetic procedures focus on combatting two major issues: aging and symmetry.
As we age, our muscle, fat, and bone tend to shift or diminish – and this results in changes to our facial structure. Aging-related issues are repaired with procedures such as a facelift or fillers.
Those who seek to repair the form and function of facial structure and symmetrical balance will undergo procedures such as rhinoplasty – which is called a “nose job” in popular culture. While the changes may be subtle, undergoing rhinoplasty can take years off of your face, and the result is relatively permanent.
How Aging Can Affect the Nose
Following rhinoplasty, your nose will retain its new shape with little to no alteration. However, as you age, you may see some slight changes in your nose.
As the human body changes, the connective tissues weaken with age. This mainly causes the tip of the nose to drop slightly.
Rhinoplasty for a Look of Rejuvenation
Rhinoplasty is not a procedure most people think about when considering anti-aging surgeries, but it can give your face a younger, more refreshed look and appeal. It can take several years off the face because of structure and aesthetic design.
Many people undergo rhinoplasty to remove or reduce a prominent bump on the nose. A bump that is removed will not come back.
As we age, the tissues and structures of the face begin to break down, droop, and sag, including the nose. However, an experienced surgeon can combat this effect by rebuilding the structures inside your nose.
For example, cartilage from other parts of your body, like your ears, can be used to support the septum and the tip of the nose, as well as help prevent the overlying tissues from drooping.
A More Youthful Face
If your primary goal is to look younger, there are other procedures – both invasive and noninvasive – that will help to provide you with more successful results, because they are targeted for facial rejuvenation. Many of the most successful procedures include facelifts, eyelid surgeries, and dermal fillers.
If looking younger is your goal, it’s very important to first address other superficial skin issues such as discoloration, age spots, sun spots, and hyperpigmentation, before undergoing rhinoplasty. These issues are more common in older people who have had more sun exposure.
Other procedures that can help you look younger are laser procedures and facials. Of course, keeping your skin well-hydrated and clean are always the most beneficial tactics in skin care health and beauty.
