Does nose size affect singing?

Because Nashville is known for its music, many of our rhinoplasty patients are also vocalists. Because your singing voice is influenced by your nose and nasal passageways, many rhinoplasty patients have concerns and queries about their results. If you’re wondering if a nose operation would impact your singing voice, the answer is that it depends on a few things.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A NOSE JOB?

In some aspects, whether or not your rhinoplasty will influence your singing voice is determined on your motive for having the procedure. Some people choose rhinoplasty to help them breathe better. This is especially true for septoplasty patients who are having the treatment done to correct a deviated septum or other functional issues. Improved and easier breathing can help you sing better in general.

In the hands of an inexperienced surgeon, however, rhinoplasty to create a smaller nose might have a severe impact on your singing voice. The resonance of your voice is influenced by the size of your nose and nasal cavities, and if your nose is too tiny as a result of your rhinoplasty, it can affect your singing. A knowledgeable plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Gilpin, will be able to assess your demands and design a final solution that combines your singing voice with your cosmetic aspirations.

HEALING FROM RHINOPLASTY BY SINGING

Singers are more likely to sound nasal up to five months after surgery, according to a study conducted in Iran. However, because Iranian singers tend to sing more from the nose than North American singers, who tend to sing from the chest and throat, the outcomes for North American singers can vary depending on their training. Due to swelling or other circumstances, your singing voice may vary as you recover from rhinoplasty. Although the recovery phase for a rhinoplasty is lengthy, most modifications in your singing voice should be modest.

AFTER A RHINOPLASTY, WILL YOUR SINGING VOICE CHANGE?

Overall, it’s tough to say whether a rhinoplasty would damage your singing voice. However, any changes are likely to be minor, and many singers may believe that their singing has improved or become easier as a result of their nose surgery. Furthermore, well-trained singers should have little difficulty adjusting to singing with a new nose after rhinoplasty.
