Medical reasons for having a nose
job are health-related reasons to
have a Rhinoplasty or Septoplasty
and therefore, are usually
reimbursed by insurance.
A Rhinoplasty today is one of the most popular and successful cosmetic surgical procedures available. Close to a half million rhinoplasties are performed every year in the Unites States. It's one of the most satisfying surgeries, because the results happen so quickly with minimal downtime and no visible scaring. We select only some of the most experienced board-certified surgeons for this specialty which is available throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico.
The main objective of a rhinoplasty is restoring balance to the face. Symmetry is what we all desire concerning our facial features, whether it be our nose, our eyes, our ears, or our chin. A nose is the central anchor to the face that works in tandem with the chin. A big nose is usually not noticeable with a big chin, but becomes a problem if the chin is too small or recessed. By necessity, a rhinoplasty consultation should always include a discussion about the chin.
There are medical reasons to sometimes have a rhinoplasty, and these should be examined before you contact a plastic surgeon, because insurance is oftentimes available to help defray some of the costs. This site explains in detail what steps you need to take to determine how much help is available from your insurance company.
Our board certified surgeons are highly trained and have been individually handpicked to become a part of our network of surgeons. All of these surgeons have developed a superior knowledge of the skills necessary to perform a rhinoplasty, have many years of experience, and have demonstrated high levels of patient satisfaction. High levels of patient satisfaction is one of our requirements that is constantly monitored.
There are many valid as well as non-valid reasons to have a rhinoplasty. This site examines all those reasons, because if you should not need one, we would like to dissuade you. If you have always wanted to have a different nose, you're probably a candidate. On the other hand, if yesterday someone told you that you reminded them of Pinocchio (and you weren't telling them a fib), you're probably not a candidate. Indeed, we have a whole section on this site dedicated to dissuading you from having a rhinoplasty if you're not sure or if your motivations are not genuine. A rhinoplasty will not change your personality, it will only change the balance of your face and make you blend into a group more easily.
