Reshaping of the nose is a very popular cosmetic surgery procedure. There are many reasons someone may choose to have rhinoplasty surgery. Even though the most common reason for getting rhinoplasty is for cosmetic reasons, many patients need it for non-cosmetic reasons. One very common non-cosmetic reason people require a non-cosmetic rhinoplasty procedure is a difficulty breathing caused by a deviated septum. A deviated septum is a common result of a broken nose and rhinoplasty is often used to correct this. Even if there isn’t something clinically wrong with your nose, you may make the decision rhinoplasty is for you. You may want to improve the size or shape of your nose and make it “fit your face” much better. Patients opt for rhinoplasty to correct anything from wide or upturned nostrils to a wide bridge or undesirable shape. Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that needs recovery time. Recovery time varies depending on the amount of work completed, but in the majority of cases it will only last about a week or two. The new shape, size and contours of the nose will be completely visible over the days and weeks after the procedure. Rhinoplasty is very often paired with a facelift to get the desired final appearance.
