A new year, a new nose
With the new year about to begin, you may want a new look for yourself that can be brought about through plastic surgery. The second most popular form of facial plastic surgery is rhinoplasty — only eyelid surgery is more popular. Common reasons for a nose job are to reduce a hump on the bridge of the nose, alter the tip of the nose or repair a deviated septum, which can lead to sleep apnea.
To alter the shape of the nose, the surgeon changes the shape of the bone and cartilage underneath the skin. To make sure there are no obvious surgical scars, the surgeon usually makes the incisions of the nose job inside the nose, where no one can see them. Doctors call this a closed rhinoplasty. In some cases, the surgeon needs to put the incision in the skin covering the nose. This is called an open rhinoplasty, and the incision is usually in the skin between the nostrils. In about one in five cases, a rhinoplasty may come with a chin implant, to give balance to the face. After surgery, there will probably be some swelling and bruising. All of these effects will go away before too long. Sometimes a rhinoplasty is performed to improve the results of a previous nose job. This is a revision rhinoplasty.
