Rhinoplasty, more commonly referred to as a nose job, is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures used today. Patients of all ages have the procedure to correct deformities which may have been caused by an accident, address structural problems that impair breathing, and/or to improve the overall physical appearance of the nose. In the past, there was little variation among the appearance of the nose for patients who underwent rhinoplasty. In contrast to giving patients the “one-size-fits-all” nose, current trends have changed significantly to give a more natural look based on an individual’s ethnic and cultural backgrounds. Surgical techniques have also expanded allowing for more creativity while procedures are less invasive with minimal cartilage removal.
These procedural differences allow for the achievement of a look that does not alter the complete appearance of the patient. With a more natural look, each procedure is individualized producing a unique result according to the patient’s ethnic background, cosmetic desires, and anatomy. A typical procedure is fairly quick and the patient is able to return home the same day. Recovery time frame varies but most patients are able to return to work after one week and normal daily life after approximately two weeks. Bruising and swelling will minimize as time passes but some signs of it can continue to be expected for up to four weeks. Although some patients are able to see the final results sooner than others, it can take up to six months for the final appearance of the nose to be seen.
