Redefining Beauty: Achieving Facial Harmony Through Rhinoplasty

Learn how rhinoplasty fits into today's evolving beauty standards.

POSTED BY ANNA GRAHAM

Rhinoplasty is an efficient facial surgery procedure that can both improve your appearance and increase self-esteem. Expert surgeons use the latest rhinoplasty techniques to reshape the nose to complement other features on your face for an attractive, balanced result.

Since beauty standards are changing rapidly, more individuals are breaking free from outdated norms and celebrating their individuality - particularly regarding their nose as a key aspect of identity.

Diversity and Inclusion

Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that can transform the look of any nose. As every nose has a unique anatomy, rhinoplasty requires surgeons who understand its specific features before suggesting changes to its shape.

Surgeons should carefully consider how a change to the nose will impact other features and balance out facial profiles, for instance a small chin could help offset an oversized or overproportioned nose.

At the consultation stage, a cosmetic surgeon will ask about any additional aesthetic goals the patient may have and identify whether rhinoplasty will achieve them. They then perform the procedure at either a hospital, doctor's office or ambulatory surgical center under local or general anesthesia.

Body Positivity

Body positivity is a movement to embrace bodies of all shapes and sizes that do not conform to modern beauty standards. It stems from the belief that worth is not determined solely by external appearances but lies instead within an individual's abilities, inner qualities, and self-acceptance; furthermore it acts as an antidote for objectification of women which leads to negative physical and mental health outcomes.

One criticism of body positivity movement is its adoption of thin ideal. This trend can often be found among thin white women with bodies accepted socially. Such actions constitute gentrification which undermines original message of body positivity as an antidiscriminatory solution against systems of oppression.

Veronica and Stephanie believe body neutrality to be an excellent alternative to body positivity, as it encourages people to place greater value on themselves for who they are rather than what they look like (Rees, 2019). Additionally, this prevents physical appearance from overshadowing other aspects of self-worth such as accomplishments or relationships.
