Not everyone is satisfied with the way they look and in fact most people would be able to pin point one or two aspects about their appearance that they would change. For some people these changes would be on a problem area in their body or for others it would be an aspect of their face that they would enhance or diminish. One of the most common plastic surgery procedures is nose surgery (nose job or rhinoplasty).
Though there are many features on the face, noses tend to be one of the most prominent features. Though a large nose with an accentuated bridge can be seen as a feature of beauty, there are people who would prefer if the silhouette of their face was different. Rhinoplasty is a type of nose surgery that can reshape the nose surgically so that the nose has a different shape.
Before getting this surgery it is important for the patient to have a consultation with the plastic surgeon so the patient can discuss with the doctor what they hope to achieve with the surgery. Some people just want a bit of a reduction in size; others want a complete reshaping of the nose, the bridge and the nostrils while others may have a crooked nose due to when they broke it as a child that never got fixed. The consultation will allow the patient and the doctor to decide on a nose shape and agree on what will be done before the patient goes into surgery.
The surgery usually takes only a few hours, and patients can often go home on the same day. Recovery takes a week or two. After the surgery, the bandages should remain for one week to allow the nose to heal properly.
