Rhinoplasty – To Change The Shape of Your Nose As You Want
Rhinoplasty is one of the most customized surgeries in facial cosmetic surgery. Rhinoplasty involves changing the shape of your nose to the way you desire, but you need to have realistic expectations going into this procedure because the nose shape can be altered only depending on the existing facial contours that you have. It can be changed in the proportions of your existing face, it cannot be made as per somebody else’s nose. Having realistic expectations always leads you to have satisfactory results following the surgery. The surgery can help you achieve a smaller nose, it can help you achieve changes in the contour when you see yourself in the lateral view, decreasing the hump, decreasing the size of the nostrils, it also helps to add a functional component to the surgery wherein if you have breathing problems, those too can be addressed during the course of the surgery.
The surgery is usually done as a day care surgery. It is done under general anesthesia. You need to probably stay overnight if the surgery is extensive and if we need to alter anything with regards to your nasal bones. Following the surgery, you need to have a splint or internal nasal packs which are removed after 24 hours.
