Patients considering rhinoplasty cosmetic surgery may wonder about the long-term results, especially if they’ve had the procedure at a younger age. No definite age would be considered the best age for nose job surgery. However, patients above 18 years old are good candidates since their bodies are fully developed.
In this article, Artiste Plastic Surgery shares the factors that may affect changes in rhinoplasty results and how to ensure positive ageing results over time.
How can Rhinoplasty results change years later?
Nose job surgery is considered to produce long-lasting or permanent results. However, certain factors can influence changes in your nose over the years:
- Natural ageing process – like other facial features, the nose is prone to ageing resulting in the nose eventually drooping, stretching or changing shape.
- Genetics – the shape and characteristics of your nose are based on your genes. Changes in your nose may vary depending on your genes and the thickness of the skin on your nose.
- Injury or trauma to the nose – when you experience trauma or injury to the face, and the impact is severe, the nasal bones can be displaced any might need for revision rhinoplasty.
- Surgical techniques – techniques used by your surgeon have an important impact in getting longer-lasting results. If the surgeon did not use advanced rhinoplasty techniques, patients might expect some changes over time.
How to ensure you have positive Nose Job results over time?
To ensure longer-lasting results, patients must make good lifestyle choices and avoid activities that can have a negative impact on their skin, such as smoking or too much exposure to the sun.
Patients should also choose a highly skilled and experienced surgeon. Your surgeon must have extensive experience using advanced surgical techniques that can mitigate the risks of experiencing negative effects as you age.
