When it comes to cosmetic surgery, one of the most popular procedures is rhinoplasty. There are many reasons you may choose to have rhinoplasty surgery. Even though the most common reason for getting rhinoplasty is for cosmetic reasons, many patients need it for non-cosmetic reasons. Rhinoplasty is often used to improve the breathing for a person with a deviated septum. Even if there isn’t something medically wrong with your nose, you may decide rhinoplasty is for you. You might want to improve the size or shape of your nose and make it “fit your face” much better. Some common reasons patients choose to get the surgery are; wide or upturned nostrils, wide bridge, visible humps, wide tip, undesirable shape of tip, and general unevenness. Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that requires recovery time. Recovery times will vary greatly with this procedure as the actual work done is different from person to person. That being said, the recovery can be as short as one week. As time passes patients notice the full changes to the contours of their nose. The procedure can also be completed as a companion to others such as a facelift.
