Nose reshaping is intended to produce a more attractive nasal shape and/or a nose in better proportion to other facial features.
Rhinoplasty is performed to change the appearance of the nose to be more aesthetic and pleasing. Nose surgery is done on an outpatient basis under anesthesia. Initial discomfort is easily controlled with oral medication. The majority of swelling and bruising subsides progressively over 2-4 weeks and the final result is evident in 12-14 months.
