When it comes to plastic surgery, one of the most popular procedures is rhinoplasty. Cosmetic reasons are not by any means the sole reason a person might choose to have rhinoplasty surgery. Even though the most popular reason for getting rhinoplasty is for cosmetic reasons, many patients need it for non-cosmetic reasons. 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 can be used to correct this. Even if there isn’t something clinically 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” much better. 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. As with the majority of surgeries, rhinoplasty will need some recovery time. Recovery time varies depending on the volume of work completed, but in the majority of cases it’ll only last about a week or two. At first after surgery the final results of the rhinoplasty won’t be able to be seen. It takes a couple days or even weeks to completely see the final outcome of the surgery. The surgery can also be completed as a companion to others such as a facelift.
