When it comes to cosmetic 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. Rhinoplasty isn’t always purely cosmetic since it can also fix abnormalities in shape and structure of your nose. 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 result of a broken nose and rhinoplasty is often used to correct this. Even if there is not something medically wrong with your nose, you might make the decision rhinoplasty is for you. You might want to improve the size or shape of your nose and make it “fit your face” much better. Patients choose rhinoplasty to correct anything from wide or upturned nostrils to a wide bridge or undesirable shape. As with most surgeries, rhinoplasty will need some recovery time. Recovery times will vary quite a bit with this surgery as the actual work completed is different from person to person. That being said, the recovery can be as short as a single week. The new shape, size and contours of the nose will be completely visible over the days and weeks after the surgery. The procedure can also be completed as a companion to others such as a facelift.
