Every year, more than 200,000 Americans choose to get a professional nose job. The shape of your nose can affect your life in many ways, from insecurity to problems breathing.
Rhinoplasty for Health and Cosmetic Reasons
Besides aesthetic reasons, people undergo a rhinoplasty for chronic breathing issues. A rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that can help you get rid of chronic nasal obstruction. Rhinoplasty can alleviate some of the symptoms that come with chronic sinusitis. Many people also get a rhinoplasty to improve the shape of their nose after a serious injury.
Getting the Procedure and Recovering
Rhinoplasty is a relatively straightforward surgery. You will need a few weeks to recover from the procedure. The tip of your nose can be swollen and numb after the surgery. You will notice a change very soon after the surgery. However, your new nose might not fully show until a year after the procedure because it can take up to 12 months for swelling to fully resolve.
