The nose job
Rhinoplasty is almost becoming a social occasion. Some young women have begun using photographs to document every stage of their own rhinoplasties and recoveries online — not only the before and after, but the transition period after surgery, when there is a certain amount of swelling, moderate bruising and occasionally some temporary skin numbness. This bruising fades within a week to ten days, and the swelling can last for several weeks. This is why nose jobs are often scheduled for the holidays, when people can stay home waiting to recover.
But rhinoplasty is not just for people wanting to improve their looks. A nose job can also solve some breathing issues, such as sleep apnea from a deviated septum which could otherwise lead to snoring and severe health problems. Nose jobs can even be performed on patients who have already undergone rhinoplasty, but are not satisfied with the results. This is called revision rhinoplasty, and it is particularly complex. A patient should wait for at least one year after the completion of one rhinoplasty before undergoing a revision. Also, nose jobs should not be performed on teenagers below a certain age unless absolutely necessary.
