Changing the shape of the nose is a very common cosmetic surgery procedure. There are a lot of reasons a person may choose to have rhinoplasty surgery. Rhinoplasty isn’t always purely cosmetic since it can also correct abnormalities in shape and structure of your nose. 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 side-effect of a broken nose and rhinoplasty is often used to correct this. Even in the event you do not have a structural problem with your nose and desire to improve it, rhinoplasty can enhance your overall body. People opt for 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 little as a week. The new shape, size and contours of the nose will be completely visible over the days and weeks after the surgery. Whether done on its own or combined with another plastic surgery treatment, rhinoplasty is one of the most transformative procedures available.
