Olympic gold medalist Stephanie Rice said of her first nose job that “Seeing the better version of my nose made me realise how much it had been affecting me.”
According to the Web site Real Self, 90% of those who rated their rhinoplasties in the last two years declared them worth it. For those who have felt embarrassed by their noses for most of their lives, it is liberating to finally be able to show the world a face you are comfortable with. Some young women have begun documenting every stage of their own rhinoplasties and recoveries for their friends — not only the before and after, but the transition period between the end of the surgery and the dissipation of the aftereffects.
In addition to its cosmetic purpose, rhinoplasty can also solve some breathing problems, such as sleep apnea from a deviated septum. Left untreated, sleep apnea can cause health problems, in addition to exasperating one’s significant other via snoring. After surgery, there is a certain amount of swelling, moderate bruising and occasionally some temporary skin numbness. The bruising fades within a week to ten days, while the swelling can last for several weeks. Don’t jump to any conclusions about what your new nose looks like until the swelling has gone down completely.
