Changing the shape of the nose is a very common plastic surgery procedure. There are many reasons you might choose to have rhinoplasty surgery. The correction of nose shape and structure are popular reasons people opt for rhinoplasty. A common need for rhinoplasty is a deviated septum. Rhinoplasty would offer these patients improved airways that allow for better breathing. Even in the event you do not have a structural problem with your nose and desire to improve it, rhinoplasty can enhance your overall appearance. Whether you’re looking to achieve a better facial symmetry or you merely dislike the size or shape of your nose, rhinoplasty can be extremely transformational. Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that needs recovery time. Recovery times will vary greatly with this surgery as the actual work done is different from person to person. That being said, the recovery can be as short as one week. As time goes by patients notice the full effect of the changes to the contours of their nose. Rhinoplasty is very often combined with a facelift to gain the desired final result.
