When discussing plastic surgery, one of the most popular procedures is rhinoplasty. 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, many 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 if you do not have a structural issue with your nose and desire to improve it, rhinoplasty can enhance your overall body. 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 needs recovery time. The recovery period can be as short as a week. As time goes by patients notice the full changes to the contours of their nose. The procedure can also be completed as a an additional surgery to others such as a facelift.
