Rhinoplasty / Nose correction
Cosmetic surgery of the head and neck
Rhinoplasty, one of the most common aesthetic surgeries, is performed to reshape, reduce, or enlarge the nose, to remove a nasal hump or a tapering tip or narrowing nostrils, to amend problems with breathing, or to change the angle and relative position of the nose and upper lip. Nose correction may be performed under local or general anesthesia, and as the incision is usually made in the nasal mucosa, there is no visible scar. So-called open rhinoplasty, where the incision to approach the nose is placed at the lower end of the skin of the nasal septum, is only performed in exceptional cases. Depending on the surgical procedure, the recovery period takes approximately 7 to 10 days.
