When discussing cosmetic surgery, one of the most popular procedures is rhinoplasty. Cosmetic reasons are not by any means the only reason a person might choose to have rhinoplasty surgery. The fixing of nose shape and structure are common reasons people opt for rhinoplasty. A common need for rhinoplasty is a deviated septum. Rhinoplasty can offer these patients improved airways and better breathing. Even in the event you don’t have a structural issue with your nose and want to improve it, rhinoplasty can enhance your overall body. Some common reasons patients choose to get the procedure are; wide or upturned nostrils, wide bridge, visible humps, wide tip, undesirable shape of tip, and general unevenness. As with most surgeries, rhinoplasty will require some recovery time. Recovery times will vary quite a bit with this procedure as the actual work done is different from patient to patient. That being said, the recovery can be as little as one week. The new shape, size and contours of the nose will be completely visible over the days and weeks proceeding the procedure. The procedure can also be done as a companion to others such as a facelift.
