Changing the shape of the nose is a very common plastic surgery procedure. There are a lot of reasons someone might 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 someone with a deviated septum. Even if you do not have a structural problem with your nose and want to improve it, rhinoplasty can enhance your overall appearance. Whether you’re looking to achieve a better facial symmetry or you simply dislike the size or shape of your nose, rhinoplasty can be dramatically transformational. As with most surgeries, rhinoplasty will need some recovery time. The recovery period can be as short as a week. The updated shape, size and contours of the nose will be completely visible over the days and weeks proceeding the surgery. The surgery can also be done as a an additional surgery to others such as a facelift.
