A nose job can improve not only your appearance, but your health. A deviated septum, for example, can cause obstruct breathing during sleep and cause snoring, which can interrupt your sleep and that of anyone nearby. Over time, this can injure your health.
Nose jobs repair nasal humps, adjust the size and direction of the tip and straighten deviated septums. The septum is the part of the nose between the nostrils. Sometimes a rhinoplasty comes with a chin implant, to balance the face. Rhinoplasty should not be done until the nose is fully developed.
After surgery, there may be a certain amount of swelling, moderate bruising and possibly temporary skin numbness. The bruises fade in a week to ten days, but the swelling can last for several weeks. If you do not like the results, you may seek revision rhinoplasty to further improve your nose, but it is best to wait at least a year before doing this.
When choosing a surgeon to perform your nose job, look for someone who has a state-of-the-art operating suite for operations and whose Web site has plenty of before and after photographs of nose jobs. Another tool a rhinoplasty surgeon should have is computer imaging software to help you choose exactly the right look for your nose. Dr. M. Sean Freeman is Charlottes top rhinoplasty surgeon.
