Does a nose job change your voice?
Does a nose job change your voice? It is very unlikely that rhinoplasty will affect your voice, but there is a small chance of a slight change. For instance, if the structure of your nose is changed, especially if your deviated septum is straightened, it may cause you to lose a bit of the nasal quality of your voice. Of course, this happened more in the past, when many surgeons still used the old methods for rhinoplasty.
In these surgeries, the priority was to shrink the nose and not pay much attention to the inside of the nose and nasal fossas, as a result of which the fossas were narrowed and the person spoke in the nose after the operation, but today the situation has changed a lot, newer and more accurate methods are used in rhinoplasty in Iran, so the probability of sound change after rhinoplasty is almost zero.
Does a nose job change your voice?
Some singers consider this a good thing, especially if it means they will now have a more open airway for resonance. Because the nasal fossas resonate with the sound of your voice when you sing, structural changes can cause minor changes to the quality of your sound. But when it comes to rhinoplasty and singing, there should not be any concern that it will dramatically and adversely affect your singing voice.
People use their voices professionally and want nose surgery. Several factors must be done before surgery and nose reshaping. It is not recommended to have a nasal hump in a situation that causes the tip of the nose to become aggressive or to narrow and create a nasal sound. Also, having a deviated nose that causes permanent nasal congestion can also cause a nasal sound. During the nasal reshaping process, the septum can be corrected, which can improve the patient's voice. The most important thing to remember is to consult with your surgeon about sound concerns before doing this so that the surgical procedure can be performed properly.
Can I sing after nose job?
It does not matter if you have had rhinoplasty or septoplasty, you will need to wait until your nose swells to allow you to resume your daily activities. Although you do not use your nose directly to produce sound, breathing is still an important part of the reading process, and it is best to allow it to fully recover before beginning any singing. Also, you may not be able to see the beautiful appearance of your nose immediately the day after surgery. It will take between 2 and 12 weeks for your body to fully recover.
Although vocal changes for all patients are important and make them worried, these type of changes are very horrible for special groups of patients like particularly singers, actors, announcers, and others who are recognized for their voices.
In these cases rhinoplasty surgery can affect their voice and this is very concerning. While it is crystal clear that nasal and vocal structures are closely related to each other, the vast majority of rhinoplasty volunteers report no manifest difference in their voices following operation. Even when patients do notice a difference in their voice after having rhinoplasty, rarely, it is typically very subtle and may not even be perceivable to anyone other than the patient themselves.
In some cases, a rhinoplasty may even enhance an overly nasal voice by opening up the nasal passages. During your healing process following the rhinoplasty, it's very possible that your singing voice can be changed due to swelling, anesthetic medications or other factors.
The rehabilitation process for a rhinoplasty takes time, but most differences in your singing voice should be minor throughout this process and if it's not contact your doctor immediately. Making the nasal passages too small, although feasibly aesthetically appealing, will diminish both airways and resonance, and potentially can cause a negative effect on your voice.
In a recent statistics of Iranian study of 27 rhinoplasty volunteers, vocal changes were subtle but detectable, with more pronounced nasal pronunciations.
