The most popular kind of aesthetic facial plastic surgery is rhinoplasty. Facial plastic surgeons performed more than 223,000 nose reshaping procedures in America in 2016, up from almost 218,000 in 2015. According to a study in JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery, only about one in thirty nose jobs ends up having to be revised, and according to the Web site Real Self, 89% of those who rated their rhinoplasties in the last two years said that they were worth it. Some people go on Instagram, Facebook or other social media platforms to document their own rhinoplasty and recovery period for their family and friends, taking selfies that show their progress as the swelling goes down over the course of several weeks or months.
There are different procedures for operations on different parts of the nose. One of the most common reasons for rhinoplasty is to fix a deviated septum. The septum is the part of the nose that separates the nostrils. Sometimes it is crooked as a result of genes or childbirth injury, and sometimes it is from a more recent injury. In either case, a crooked nose is not only distracting to look at, but a source of breathing problems.
A nose job can also be used to get rid of the hump on your nose. This does not always require surgery. If the hump is small enough, or the rest of the nose is small enough, the surgeon may be able to get rid of it using small injections of filler that smooth the lines of the nose.
The nasal tip can be corrected, if you feel that the tip is too bulbous, or points the wrong way. This procedure is easier to go through than many other forms of rhinoplasty, and means a shorter recovery if the bone is not involved. Whatever sort of surgery you get, keep your glasses off until recovery and stay away from anyone who might have a cold or flu so you do not run the risk of sneezing.
