Your nose is an integral part of the respiratory system and a defining feature of your face. Rhinoplasty (commonly known as a nose job) is a common plastic surgery procedure that enhances your nose's aesthetic appeal and functionality by changing its size, shape, and profile.
For looks and function
Dislike for one's nose - its shape, size, or general appearance - is quite common in today's society. As a result, thousands of people inquire about rhinoplasty each year. Rhinoplasty uses refined surgical techniques to improve the aesthetic profile of your nose but also, in many situations, improve the breathing and functionality of your nose. Rhinoplasty may also lessen or even remove sinus-related issues; restlessness has been linked with several serious health problems, such as heart disease, depression, and diabetes (just some examples).

People who are in reasonably good health are prime candidates for a rhinoplasty. However, there is some critical information to keep in mind before you decide to undergo surgery. For example, you should not have the surgery if you're pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant; if you have recently experienced trauma to your nose or use intra-nasal drugs. As long as these guidelines are followed, rhinoplasty may be beneficial for those suffering from nasal congestion due to various conditions like allergic reactions, colds, bronchitis, chronic sinusitis, nasal polyps, and sleep apnea.
There are several surgical techniques utilized in rhinoplasty. These include closed tip rhinoplasty (scars are placed on the inside of the nose), open tip rhinoplasty (a scar is placed between the nostrils), alar reduction rhinoplasty (reduces the width of the nostrils), and septorhinoplasty (rhinoplasty and septoplasty combined often for breathing difficulties). The right technique for you is the technique that meets your functional and aesthetic goals. Most rhinoplasties are performed under general anesthesia. This means you will be asleep during the surgery. The surgeon will make the necessary incisions to access the bone and cartilage beneath the skin. They will then sculpt the bone and cartilage to create the desired shape of your nose. You will be placed in a nasal splint after surgery to help reduce your swelling.
There will be some bruising and swelling following the operation. It can take months for the swelling to go down, but most individuals don't notice it after a few months. After a week or two, most people return to their everyday routines and may resume all activities.
A rhinoplasty alters your nose's shape permanently, and the effects usually stay for the rest of your life. However, your nose may change in the form if you have faced trauma, such as a vehicle accident. In addition, your nose's appearance may vary slightly due to aging.
Most people have bruising and swelling after rhinoplasty, but in the majority of individuals, the procedure is tolerated very well with minimal pain.
Rhinoplasty is a safe operation. Despite this, all surgical procedures have a degree of risk. Bruising, swelling, and bleeding are all possible side effects. In rare cases, people may experience worsening breathing after rhinoplasty.
