The most pronounced landmark on your face is your nose.
The most pronounced landmark on your face is your nose. If this feature is too large or too small, your face may appear unbalanced. Facial cosmetic surgery may restore your facial harmony by changing the shape or size of your nose. This refined, more balanced profile is intended to last permanently.
Nasal surgery (rhinoplasty) is the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery on the face. It can improve the shape or size of your nose by raising or refining the tip, removing the hump, or narrowing the bridge.
How A Rhinoplasty Is Done
Incisions are usually made inside the nose. Excess bone and cartilage are removed and the nose is reshaped.
Keeping The Patient Comfortable
Local anesthesia and sedation may be given to keep the patient comfortable and free of pain. If desired, general anesthesia can be administered.
The Immediate After-Effects
There may be bruising and oily skin for a few weeks. Swelling will gradually reduce over several months. It may take up to a year to see the final results.
The Results To Expect
Significant improvements should be noticed immediately following surgery. The nose will look even more natural and attractive as the swelling subsides in the weeks after surgery. Just how much improvement is achieved depends on the individual’s physical characteristics and the extent of the surgery.
