Changing the shape of the nose is a very popular plastic surgery procedure. It’s done for a variety of reasons. Though the most common reason for getting rhinoplasty is for cosmetic reasons, many patients require it for reasons of a non-cosmetic nature. A common need for rhinoplasty is a deviated septum. Rhinoplasty can offer these patients improved airways and better breathing. Even in the event you do not have a structural issue with your nose and desire 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 extremely transformational. Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that needs recovery time. Recovery time can vary depending on the amount of work completed, but in most cases it will only take about a couple weeks. The updated shape, size and contours of the nose will be completely visible over the days and weeks after the surgery. As with most plastic surgery treatments, the rhinoplasty is often combined with other procedures to gain the desired results. The most commonplace combination is a facelift.
