People choose to have Rhinoplasty, or Nose Surgery, for both aesthetic and corrective reasons. Deviated septums are among the most common reason people choose to have Rhinoplasty. Having a Deviated Septum can make it very difficult to breath properly. Another reason people choose Rhinoplasty is for it’s aesthetic benefits. Some people feel their noses are too large or that it is disproportionate to the rest of their face. Injury to the nose causing crookedness or deformity is also another reason people choose to undergo Rhinoplasty.
Rhinoplasty generally takes around an hour to complete and the results are instant, minus some initial swelling and bruising. Your splint or bandage will be removed anywhere from one to two weeks after the procedure and you can often return to work within days of the procedure. Of course, every patient’s experience and recovery is different, so it is important that you listen to your body and consult with your doctor if you have any questions.
