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 someone might choose to have rhinoplasty surgery. Even though the most common reason for getting rhinoplasty is for cosmetic reasons, many patients need it for reasons of a non-cosmetic nature. A common need for rhinoplasty is a deviated septum. Rhinoplasty would offer these patients improved airways and better breathing. Even if 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 correct anything from wide or upturned nostrils to a wide bridge or undesirable shape. As with most surgeries, rhinoplasty will require some recovery time. Recovery time varies depending on the amount of work completed, but in most cases it’ll only take about a week or two. As time passes people notice the full effect of the changes to the contours of their nose. The surgery can also be done as a an additional surgery to others such as a facelift.
