Slight Details: Will Getting a Nose Job Change the Tone of Your Voice?

Many individuals consider getting a nose job for a variety of reasons.

They may not like the look and shape of their nose, or they could have trouble breathing, either during the day or while sleeping, which would be considered a medical reason.

Before getting a nose job, you need to consider what it means to get a rhinoplasty from a top rated expert.

A plastic surgeon, or any surgeon that is going to be operating on your body, should be certified as well as top in his or her field.


What is a Nose Job?

Rhinoplasty or a nose job is designed to change the shape and structure of the nose.

This can be done inside the nose or on the outside. Both are considered medically needed; however, if the reshaping is done only on the outside, it is most likely considered cosmetic.

These determinations are for insurance classification purposes. Most surgeons consider reshaping the nose on the outside also medically needed.


What Creates The Voice?

Beginning with the vocal folds, located in the Larynx, they come together when air passes from the lungs.

This creates a vibration, a sound wave, or simply a noise, that then forms a word.

You will also need your cheeks and your throat to help form a noise or words.

Your lips and tongue are the final part of speaking. Different words are formed in the front and the back of the mouth and the tongue can be on the roof of the mouth, or at the back of the throat, or along the row of teeth, in order to form different words.


What Changes a Voice

If you have a cold or sore throat, your voice could sound hoarse.  This is due to the vocal folds not fully closing or they could be vibrating asymmetrically.

One of the most frequently asked questions about rhinoplasty is if a person’s voice will change.

While most individuals will not notice a marked change in their voice, some may experience Hyponasality. This is the sound the voice makes when there is not enough air moving through the nasal cavity.

People also experience this when they have a stuffy nose or severe allergies.

For the most part, Rhinoplasty will not change a person’s voice. If you happen to make a living with your voice, like as an actor or actress, singer, or as a voice-over artist, you may notice a slight difference in some of the words or notes your stress.

Many famous individuals have undergone Rhinoplasty and it has not changed their voices.


Voice Confrontation

Most individuals do not like the sound of their own voice, especially when hearing it on a recorded device.

The official name for this is Voice Confrontation. Of course, this could be a matter of psychological feelings and most of those who make a living with their voice do not suffer from this affliction.

Always talk with your surgeon before undergoing a procedure to determine if it is right for you.
