Miss Ryland Says Nose Surgery Drastic, But No Regrets
Miss Ryland of Whales was 21 years old when she finally decided to have nose surgery. Since 12 years of age, the profile of Miss Ryland’s nose had bothered her. Yet, it was a facebook comment from a friend that prompted her to have nose surgery at 21 years of age. The friend’s comment, “With a nose that big you should wear a mask to cover it up.”, sent Miss Ryland into the plastic surgeon’s office for nose surgery two weeks later.
Soon after, Miss Ryland entered the Miss Caerphilly pageant in Whales and was the second runner up. In the end, Miss Ryland felt that nose surgery was dramatic, but seems to feel great about the results of the procedures. Miss Ryland is not unlike many other nose surgery patients. It is not vanity that drives people into plastic surgeons’ offices for nose surgery. Often times, it is ridicule that has been endured since childhood. For this reason, it has become more common for people to undergo nose surgery when their nose is full grown, at a young age. Though, people of all adult ages undergo rhinoplasty.
In fact, today there are less invasive options for nose surgery to attract patients. Plastic surgeons may use a “scarless rhinoplasty” approach involving facial fillers to reshape the nose. There is also the closed rhinoplasty approach that focuses on performing the procedure through incisions that are made inside the nose. Open rhinoplasty is still an option when necessary. Some may feel that the open approach is intimidating because discreet incisions may be made on the nose such as below or on the sides of the nose. However, even the open approach is more advanced with smaller instruments that provide less invasiveness. People who feel that their confidence is lacking because of ridicule usually do not ultimately mind any approach to nose surgery. Indeed, nose surgery can be gratifying in many ways.
