For a number of patients, rhinoplasty (nose reshaping) is a corrective surgical procedure while for others it is purely an aesthetic procedure.

Since the surgical procedure can be corrective or cosmetic, some patients are opting to get a combination of both cosmetic and revision surgery for that enhanced look. Additionally, a lot of clients are also seeking purely revision surgery which is today a very common procedure.

If you're thinking of going for a corrective nose job, there are some very clear benefits that are associated with this type of surgery:

1. Easy and Unconstrained Breathing

Among a high percentage of people, problems associated with breathing are a common and a rising complaint. The ability to breathe well can be very scary and frustrating for any person. Topping the list of surgical procedure that would help you breathe easier is nose reshaping, particularly for a person having deviated septum. The Australian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS) recommends that if you want to improve your breathing and airflow, nose reshaping carried out by a qualified corrective plastic surgeon for a deviated septum could be what you need.

2. Looking and Feeling Great

Even if you're undergoing surgery for purposes of correcting a health-related problem, you will for sure be feeling better regarding your new physical appearance following the procedure. Corrective nose reshaping does not just alleviate your health problem, but also alters the shape and outline of your nose. Working with your surgeon on your nose job, you can decide how much you desire to change or modify your nose for the final outcome.

If your odd-looking nose has been causing you embarrassment and discomfort when in the company of friends, the procedure will go a long way in enhancing your self esteem and levels of confidence.

3. Getting Better Sleep

Many people today are suffering from sleep issues that are related to breathing. The problem could be as bad as sleep apnea that can cause your airways to close up or get blocked, potentially leading to a variety of health complications. There are a number of conventional treatment methods which you could utilize at home, although in the major of instances, corrective surgery could be your best option. Working with a trained and skilled Australian Medical Council (AMC) certified plastic surgeon, it is possible to surgically get your problematic nasal passageways “redone” for the purpose of alleviating most of the breathing challenges resulting your sleep problems.

It's important to ensure that you're working with an Australian Medical Board certified plastic surgeon, preferably one who has been trained by the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons for your surgery. This is especially critical for any corrective work as this would be the safest way of ensuring you're being assisted by a professional without compromising your health, and hence avoiding potential complications.

Additionally, working with an experienced plastic surgeon assures you that in case of any complications after the surgery, you are in good hands and needed revision surgery will be professionally handled.
