Why Your Nose Is Important To Your Face

Nose Surgery New York, NY

Of course, when it comes to the importance of your nose, the most significant role that it plays in helping you breathe. The nose is a primary part of the body’s respiratory system that inhales oxygen and exhales carbon dioxide. The nose also contributes to other vital functions such as smelling, tasting, and hearing. However, another role that the nose plays is that it is the central feature of the face. The size and shape of the nose affect the overall facial appearance, and it can significantly impact how a person feels regarding his or her appearance.

Rhinoplasty is the most popular facial plastic surgery requested among cosmetic patients. When people are unhappy with what they see in the mirror, it can play a highly detrimental role in their self-esteem and confidence. An unattractive nose can wreak psychological havoc over the years, making people feel that their nose is all that others see when they look at them. People with a high disapproval of their nose tend to run from the camera and often avoid social situations. For those with a saddle nose, the feelings of self-depreciation are often much greater and more significant.

A saddle nose deformity creates an unnatural appearance. A saddle nose deformity is described as the bridge of the nose being collapsed and creating an abnormal shape to the nose. For those with this condition, the shape of the nose can detract from the attractiveness of their face.

While no one really gives a lot of thought to the nose in general, an unattractive nose is quite noticeable. Because of this, many people want a correction that will help them achieve a new, more pleasing look.

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!

AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
