Spring into a new nose
With spring around the corner, you may want a new look. According to research published in Clinical Psychological Science, a majority of cosmetic surgery patients have realistic expectations of the outcome, and as a group experience less anxiety than non-patients and are happier, not just with the operated area, but with their bodies as a whole. The nose is at the center of the face, and a nose that seems even a little misshapen or too large can put a lot of pressure on a person’s self-esteem, so rhinoplasty is the most popular form of facial plastic surgery. Even those who have had very minor changes to their nose have found that it lets them stop obsessing over the subject.
After surgery, there will probably be some swelling. There may also be a certain amount of bruising. There might also be some skin numbness. All of these effects will go away before too long. The bruising will fade within a week to ten days, while the swelling can last for several weeks. You won’t know what your nose really looks like until the swelling has gone down, so to get an idea of what to expect, look for a surgeon with a gallery of before and after rhinoplasty photographs on his or her Web site.
