( - Rhinoplasty can be life changing. Just ask actress Lisa Kudrow who had a nose job when she was 16 years old. The former Friends star recently told the Saturday Evening Post in an interview that the procedure was "life altering." Prior to the surgery, the now 50 year old felt "hideous." Thirty-four years later Kudrow still maintains that it was a good change for her, especially since the surgery took place right before entering a new high school where other students didn't know what she looked like before.

Lisa Kudrow is not the only person to feel so pleased years later with her nose job. Rhinoplasty truly can have a huge impact on your life, not just the way you look. The nose is one of the most prominent features of your face, being that it is front and center. This can either be a good thing, if it is proportionate to the rest of the face and complements your other features, or it can be negative. Many people feel their nose is too big, too small, too wide, too narrow, too bumpy, too flat... the list goes on and on. Luckily rhinoplasty, otherwise known as a nose job, can significantly improve the aesthetic of the nose when performed by a specialist.

Feel as Good as You Look

Given a successful outcome that meets your goals, you will not only just see a more attractive nose in the mirror, but you will begin to feel that you are attractive, perhaps for the first time. Rhinoplasty has been shown to increase self-confidence considerably. This improved self-image can permeate all areas of life, including overall wellbeing.

With better emotional and psychological health, individuals are able to engage better in social settings and are more successful in their careers. Had Lisa Kudrow not undergone rhinoplasty, perhaps she never would have gone on to be the screen star that she is. Nose surgery can be performed on teenagers (girls age 14-15, boys age 16-17) once the nose has stopped growing, and though many people debate whether someone so young should have cosmetic surgery, Kudrow's case is an example of a nose job performed for the right reasons and with a great outcome.

Realistic Expectations are Key

Of course, the ability for a rhinoplasty surgery to change your life for the better is dependent on your expectations. Patients who go in looking for unattainable perfection for an already flawless nose will not find what they are looking for. Nor will someone who is undergoing surgery to please or attract someone else. It is most definitely not a cure for depression or body dysmorphic disorder. Good rhinoplasty candidates are those who want to improve upon the way their nose looks for their own satisfaction and who have realistic goals for improvement. They understand that there are limitations to plastic surgery. With a positive outlook, the chance of being satisfied with the end result is extremely high.
