When it comes to plastic surgery, one of the most common procedures is rhinoplasty. It’s completed for multiple reasons. Even though the most popular reason for getting rhinoplasty is for cosmetic reasons, other patients need it for reasons of a non-cosmetic nature. A common need for rhinoplasty is a deviated septum. Rhinoplasty can offer these patients improved airways and better breathing. Even if there is not something medically wrong with your nose, you might decide rhinoplasty is for you. You might want to improve the size or shape of your nose and make it “fit your face” much better. Whether you are looking to achieve a better facial symmetry or you merely do not the size or shape of your nose, rhinoplasty can be dramatically transformational. Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that requires recovery time. The recovery period can be as short as a week. The new shape, size and contours of the nose will be completely visible over the days and weeks after the procedure. As with most plastic surgery procedures, the rhinoplasty is often combined with other surgeries to get the desired results. The most common pairing is a facelift.
