When it comes to cosmetic surgery, one of the most popular procedures is rhinoplasty. Cosmetic reasons are not by any means the only reason someone may choose to have rhinoplasty surgery. Rhinoplasty is not always purely cosmetic since it can also fix abnormalities in shape and structure of the nose. Rhinoplasty is often used to improve the breathing for a person with a deviated septum. Even in the event you don’t have a structural problem with your nose and desire to improve it, rhinoplasty can enhance your overall appearance. Some popular reasons patients choose to get the procedure are; wide or upturned nostrils, wide bridge, visible humps, wide tip, undesirable shape of tip, and general unevenness. Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that requires recovery time. Recovery time varies depending on the amount of work done, but in the majority of cases it will only last about a couple weeks. The updated shape, size and contours of the nose will be completely visible over the days and weeks proceeding the surgery. As with most cosmetic surgery procedures, the rhinoplasty is often paired with other procedures to achieve the desired results. The most common pairing is a facelift.
