When discussing plastic surgery, one of the most common procedures is rhinoplasty. There are a lot of reasons you might choose to have rhinoplasty surgery. Rhinoplasty isn’t always purely cosmetic since it can also fix abnormalities in shape and structure of your nose. One very common non-cosmetic reason people require a non-cosmetic rhinoplasty surgery is a difficulty breathing caused by a deviated septum. A deviated septum is a common side-effect of a broken nose and rhinoplasty can be used to correct this. Non-cosmetic reasons aside, rhinoplasty is most commonly used to enhance a person’s looks by improving the shape or size of the nose. Patients choose rhinoplasty to fix anything from wide or upturned nostrils to a wide bridge or undesirable shape. Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that needs recovery time. Recovery times will vary greatly with this procedure as the actual work done is different from person to person. That being said, the recovery can be as little as a single week. Initially after surgery the final results of the rhinoplasty will not be able to be detected. It takes a few days or even weeks to completely see the final outcome of the surgery. The surgery can also be done as a companion to others such as a facelift.
