Rhinoplasty, which is the changing the shape of the nose, is a very common plastic surgery procedure. Cosmetic reasons are not by any means the sole reason a person might choose to have rhinoplasty surgery. Though the most common reason for getting rhinoplasty is for cosmetic reasons, other patients need it for non-cosmetic reasons. A common need for rhinoplasty is a deviated septum. Rhinoplasty would offer these patients improved airways that allow for better breathing. Even if there isn’t something clinically wrong with your nose, you may make the decision rhinoplasty is for you. You might want to improve the size or shape of your nose and make it “fit your face” significantly better. Patients choose rhinoplasty to fix anything from wide or upturned nostrils to a wide bridge or undesirable shape. Recovery time will be required after a rhinoplasty surgery. The recovery time can be as short as a week. As time passes patients notice the full changes to the contours of their nose. Whether completed on its own or combined with an additional cosmetic surgery treatment, rhinoplasty is one of the most transformative procedures to choose from.
