When deciding on the best plastic surgeon, it’s important to find a professional who is not only experienced with your chosen procedure, but willing to review every possible outcome during your consultation. It is sadly all too common for a patient to have certain expectations for a procedure and have the results come out slightly different.
For example, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) revealed that some patients may notice a slight change in their voice after undergoing rhinoplasty, better known as a nose job. This procedure is incredibly popular among men and women alike and may help ease breathing while transforming the way you see yourself for the better. However, for all of its benefits, rhinoplasty can also bring some unexpected results.
“Changes in voice after rhinoplasty are perceptible to patients as well as to experts, but generally don’t cause problems with speech function,” Dr. Kamran Khazaeni and colleagues at Mashhad University of Medical Sciences, Iran, told the ASPS. “Patients considering rhinoplasty — especially those who use their voice professionally — should be aware of [this possibility].”
The possibility of one’s voice becoming slightly altered after a nose job is one any patient should consider, but also keep in mind this side effect is rare. If you’re curious or concerned about any undesired effects a cosmetic surgery with quick recovery might have on your life, make sure to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon. Also, remember that some of the unexpected effects of any procedure may actually be beneficial.
