When discussing plastic surgery, one of the most popular procedures is rhinoplasty. Cosmetic reasons are not by any means the only reason a person might choose to have rhinoplasty surgery. The correction of nose shape and structure are popular reasons people opt for rhinoplasty. 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 side-effect of a broken nose and rhinoplasty is often used to correct this. Even if there isn’t something medically wrong with your nose, you might decide rhinoplasty is for you. You might want to improve the size or shape of your nose and make it “fit your face” significantly better. 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 most surgical procedures, rhinoplasty will require some recovery time. Recovery time can vary depending on the amount of work completed, but in most cases it’ll only last about a week or two. The new shape, size and contours of the nose will be completely visible over the days and weeks proceeding the procedure. The procedure can also be completed as a companion to others such as a facelift.
