When it comes to cosmetic surgery, one of the most common procedures is rhinoplasty. Cosmetic reasons are not by any means the sole reason someone may choose to have rhinoplasty surgery. Though the most common reason for getting rhinoplasty is for cosmetic reasons, other 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 that allow for better breathing. Even if you do not have a structural problem with your nose and want to improve it, rhinoplasty can enhance your overall appearance. Whether you’re looking to achieve a better facial symmetry or you merely dislike the size or shape of your nose, rhinoplasty can be dramatically transformational. Recovery time will be required after a rhinoplasty procedure. Recovery times will vary greatly with this procedure as the actual work completed is different from person to person. That being said, the recovery can be as short as one week. The new shape, size and contours of the nose will be completely visible over the days and weeks after the surgery. As with most cosmetic surgery procedures, the rhinoplasty is often paired with other procedures to achieve the desired results. The most commonplace pairing is a facelift.
