If you’re honest, how often do you think about getting a nose job? If you think about rhinoplasty pretty often, you can take solace in the fact that you are not alone. In a recent interview, reality tv star and general celebrity Khloe Kardashian mentioned that she’s always thinking about getting a nose job. It’s just that she’s uncertain of both the results and of the discomfort of recovery.
How Often Do You Think About Getting a Nose Job? Be Honest Now.
Her hesitations are natural, as are the nature of her second (and third) thoughts. And, while she contemplates her rhinoplasty procedure, she instead uses contouring makeup techniques in order to achieve the look she wants, however temporary.
Khloe Kardashian’s Instagram confession about thinking about plastic surgery is actually a pretty nice change of pace, all things considered. We typically think of any type of aesthetic or cosmetic surgery as a full throttle kind of event. You want one, you get one. But most people tend to oscillate between wanting one and not wanting one. They think about it long and hard before making the decision to undergo a procedure. So, how often do you think about getting a nose?
How Long Until You Get a Nose Job?
It might stand to reason that the longer you think about a a procedure, the more likely you are to undergo one. That’s not necessarily true. When you think about plastic surgery–and rhinoplasty in particular–you’re likely going to try to balance several things:
- How you want the rhinoplasty to change your nose: What do you want your results to look like? It can be really difficult to put your finger on this. Or it could be really easy, if there’s an aspect of your nose you’d like to eliminate.
- The discomfort associated with the procedure: It’s no secret that rhinoplasty can be especially uncomfortable. And so it’s not surprising that many patients find themselves hesitating because they aren’t sure they can handle that discomfort. Having a discussion with your plastic or cosmetic surgeon about that aspect of the procedure can really help.
- Likelihood of success: If there’s one procedure that is subject to revision, it’s going to be rhinoplasty. Revision rhinoplasty tends to be relatively common (among comparatively rare revision procedure). In part, that’s because the nose takes a long time to heal. But it’s understandable the prospect of having to undergo a second procedure should the first not work out may make some patients hesitate.
There’s certainly nothing wrong with hesitating to undergo a rhinoplasty procedure. And there’s also nothing wrong with thinking long and hard before you go under the knife. Indeed, the more you think about the procedure, the more likely you are to be certain of the results you want.
And that could lead to a more satisfying conclusion to your rhinoplasty surgery experience.
A Non Surgical Option?
When it comes to making the final decision about a nose job, many patients want to try out a test drive first. Thanks to some non surgical innovations, this is actually possible in some circumstances. A non surgical nose job can make temporary alterations to your nose by injecting it with a dermal filler.
This filler, as the name implies, increases the volume of strategic parts of the nose. Thus, it changes the shape of the nose. These non surgical nose jobs can be used for a wide variety of purposes, from correcting a drooping tip to building up the bridge of the nose (and many, many uses in between).
The results from a non surgical nose job will typically last anywhere from 6 to 18 months, depending on which filler is used to generate the results. At the end of that time, patients may elect to undergo surgery, get another round of fillers injected, or let their noses return to their previous state. In any case, it’s a good procedure for patients who are concerned about either the surgery or the effects of surgery.
Thinking Doesn’t Always Lead to Doing
If you’re thinking about plastic or cosmetic surgery, as Khloe Kardashian seems to be, it’s important to know that it’s okay to think about it. And it’s okay to decide, ultimately, not to undergo any rhinoplasty procedure, surgery or otherwise. How often you think about rhinoplasty doesn’t create a direct correlation to how likely you are to undergo the procedure. How often do you think about getting a nose job? Ultimately, that’s less important than how happy you are with your nose–either before or after surgery.
