Rhinoplasty, which is the reshaping of the nose, is a very common cosmetic surgery procedure. There are a lot of reasons you may choose to have rhinoplasty surgery. Even though the most popular reason for getting rhinoplasty is for cosmetic reasons, other patients need it for non-cosmetic reasons. 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 result of a broken nose and rhinoplasty is often used to correct this. Non-cosmetic reasons aside, rhinoplasty is most commonly utilized to enhance one’s beauty by improving the shape or size of the nose. Whether you’re looking to achieve a better facial symmetry or you merely do not the size or shape of your nose, rhinoplasty can be dramatically transformational. As with most surgical procedures, rhinoplasty will need some 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 little as one week. Initially after surgery the final results of the rhinoplasty will not be able to be detected. It takes a couple days or even weeks to completely see the final outcome of the surgery. Whether done on its own or paired with an additional plastic surgery treatment, rhinoplasty is one of the most transformative procedures available.
