Reshaping of the nose is a very common plastic surgery procedure. There are many reasons you may choose to have rhinoplasty surgery. Even though the most popular 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 someone with a deviated septum. Non-cosmetic reasons aside, rhinoplasty is most often used to enhance one’s looks by improving the shape or size of the nose. People choose rhinoplasty to correct anything from wide or upturned nostrils to a wide bridge or undesirable size. As with most surgeries, rhinoplasty will need some recovery time. Recovery times will vary greatly with this procedure as the actual work completed is different from person to person. That being said, the recovery can be as little as one 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.
