Does Rhinoplasty Surgery make you look younger?

January 25, 2012

The January 2012 issue of Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery features a study that shows people look on average, one-and-a-half years younger after undergoing nose job surgery. In my experience, patients with signs of “nasal aging” will look significantly younger after a rhinoplasty. As you age, gravity pulls everything to the ground including the tip of your nose. So as you age, there is a tendency for your tip to droop and your nose to lengthen. This may cause the appearance of a “hump” that was never present and lead to an unattractive nasal appearance. These changes may start in your thirties and become most pronounced by your sixth decade.

If you are bothered by a long, droopy nose and a more pronounced profile-bump, Rhinoplasty Surgery may lead to a more youthful and attractive appearance.
