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.
