The nose is arguably the most noticeable feature on someone’s face. It takes center stage and is one of the first things people see when they look at you. Consequently, it’s the source of many confidence issues for people all over the world. As such, nose surgery is increasingly common, providing people with a way to alter their noses and feel more at ease with themselves. The medical term for nose surgery is rhinoplasty, and it is performed by the expert surgeons at El Paso Cosmetic Surgery. Despite being a common and well-known procedure, plenty of people still don’t understand the purpose of rhinoplasty or if it is suitable for them or not.
The purpose of a rhinoplasty can be two-fold. In truth, it depends on your reasons for getting the surgery.
On one hand, you can have an aesthetic rhinoplasty. Here, the purpose is purely cosmetic – it’s to alter your nose and make it more suitable for your face. Of course, you have control over how the nose looks, but your surgeon will provide advice to get a result that looks natural and compliments the rest of your face.
On the other hand, you can receive a functional rhinoplasty. With these, the main purpose is to change the shape of your nose to relieve a specific medical condition. Doing so will help you breathe better and live a less stressful life. Deviated septums are commonly treated this way.
Who is a Candidate for a Rhinoplasty?
Nose surgery is typically not advised for anyone under the age of 18. Most candidates will have either aesthetic or medical issues focusing on their noses. If you are unhappy with the way your nose looks – and it causes great stress in your life – this surgery could be ideal for you. Likewise, if you suffer from breathing problems due to the anatomy of your nose, a rhinoplasty could help you out as well.
The key benefit of this surgery is that it will drastically improve your self-confidence. You can finally tackle the main source of your confidence issues, making you feel so much better about yourself. The positive mental attitude you get from this can literally change your life.
Similarly, a rhinoplasty can ease the symptoms of medical conditions. Following this treatment, if you suffer from a deviated septum, you will finally be able to breathe properly. Again, this has life-changing consequences!
Dr. Sozer will customize a rhinoplasty according to patients specific needs to include either open or closed rhinoplasty.

My experience with Dr. Sozer and his staff was outstanding!! I had bariatric surgery 18 months ago and lost a total of 126 lbs. I was wanting to remove excess skin and lift areas of my body that had gone south. I was very unhappy with the way I was looking. I explained my needs and wants to Dr. Sozer and he understood what I was wanting. Dr. Sozer took the time to explain the entire process.
Dr. Sozer is incredible at listening to your goals and giving you great recommendations on how to best get you there. In addition, he is an expert surgeon who can follow through with the recommendations and give you beautiful, natural results. I couldn't ask for a better doctor.
Dr. Sozer managed to give me back the self-image that I had after a botched abdominal surgery that had left me with craters and scars. His talent and artistry took me from a condition where I was embarrassed to remove my shirt, to the best I have ever looked. In fact, I went back shortly after for a procedure on my chest, which completed the look I have always wanted! I will always go back to El Paso Cosmetic Surgery for any future aesthetic procedure.
My experience with Dr. Sozer was great throughout the whole process. During my initial consultation, he explained my pre-op and post-op procedures in great detail. I particularly enjoyed the high tech imaging where I was able to see the type of outcome I would achieve with my surgery. I work in the health care industry and was really pleased with the level of service his staff provided. . At this point, I am currently at week 7 post-op, my recovery has been quicker than expected and I can perform normal activities with some caution.
