Rhinoplasty, which is the changing the shape of the nose, is a very common cosmetic surgery procedure. There are a lot of reasons someone might choose to have rhinoplasty surgery. Even though the most common reason for getting rhinoplasty is for cosmetic reasons, other patients need it for reasons of a non-cosmetic nature. Rhinoplasty is often used to improve the breathing for a person with a deviated septum. Even in the event you do not have a structural problem with your nose and want 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 size. Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that needs recovery time. The recovery time can be as short as one week. As time goes by people notice the full effect of the changes to the contours of their nose. Rhinoplasty is very often combined with a facelift to get the desired final appearance.
