Do you like the shape of your nose?
If the answer to that question is “no”, there is a solution: rhinoplasty surgery. This surgery involves reshaping your nose and is the most popular form of cosmetic surgery. The procedure involves manipulating and reshaping the bone, cartilage, and soft tissue of the nose. It is possible to change the size of your nose, the size of the tip, the surface of the bridge or the span of your nostrils.
How does it work?
The surgeon begins by separating the skin from the bone or cartilage. Then, he manipulates the bone, cartilage or soft tissue into the desired position and reaffixes the skin. Since most of the procedure occurs internally, there is very little risk of scarring. The actual surgery will take a few hours and in most cases you will need to spend one night in the hospital.
What happens after the surgery?
Initially, you will experience some swelling after the nose surgery. You will most likely have some pain after the surgery; pain killers will be prescribed by your physician. In addition, you will have some bruising, especially under the eyes. Most swelling and bruising will disappear within 2-3 weeks. For this reason, most patients take 2-3 weeks off to recover.
After nose surgery, most patients report improved self-confidence. If you don’t like the shape of your nose; consider rhinoplasty for the nose you always wanted.
