When it comes to cosmetic surgery, one of the most popular procedures is rhinoplasty. It is completed for many reasons. Though the most popular reason for getting rhinoplasty is for cosmetic reasons, many patients require it for reasons of a non-cosmetic nature. Rhinoplasty is often used to improve the breathing for someone with a deviated septum. Even if you do not have a structural problem with your nose and desire to improve it, rhinoplasty can enhance your overall appearance. Whether you are looking to achieve a better facial symmetry or you merely dislike the size or shape of your nose, rhinoplasty can be dramatically transformational. As with the majority of surgical procedures, rhinoplasty will need some recovery time. Recovery times will vary quite a bit 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. The updated shape, size and contours of the nose will be completely visible over the days and weeks proceeding the surgery. As with most cosmetic surgery treatments, the rhinoplasty is often paired with other surgeries to gain the desired results. The most common combination is a facelift.
