When discussing plastic surgery, one of the most common procedures is rhinoplasty. Cosmetic reasons are not by any means the only reason someone might choose to have rhinoplasty surgery. Rhinoplasty isn’t always purely cosmetic since it can also correct abnormalities in shape and structure of the 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 can be used to correct this. Even if there isn’t something medically wrong with your nose, you might decide rhinoplasty is for you. You may want to improve the size or shape of your nose and make it “fit your face” significantly better. People opt for rhinoplasty to fix anything from wide or upturned nostrils to a wide bridge or undesirable size. Recovery time will be required after a rhinoplasty surgery. Recovery time can vary depending on the volume of work completed, but in most cases it will only take about a week or two. The updated shape, size and contours of the nose will be completely visible over the days and weeks proceeding the procedure. Rhinoplasty is quite often combined with a facelift to get the desired final result.
