5 Facts about Nose Reshaping

Rhinoplasty Beverly Hills

A number of women and men come to my practice with misconceptions and misinformation about Los Angeles rhinoplasty procedures. Here are five facts all people interested in this procedure should be aware of:

  • Rhinoplasty can help a person to not only improve the appearance of her or his nose, but often also restores breathing after damage caused by an injury. Surgery used to correct functional problems, such as a deviated septum, is often covered by health insurance.
  • Depending on the desired results, surgeons can hide incisions inside a person’s nose. Known as a closed procedure, this method is a great way to hide any indications of facial cosmetic surgery.
  • It’s important to wait until at least 15 years of age to ensure your facial growth is complete. This will aid a surgeon in make the necessary alterations to suit your facial appearance, and help you see your adult-sized nose before deciding on surgery.
  • Recovery times vary from one person to another, but people can often return to work within 7 days of surgery. Most people can resume exercise and other activities within a month.
  • As long as a person does not incur a major injury or damage the nose after surgery, people can expect permanent results. The normal aging process will help to blend the results with the surrounding facial skin for a natural appearance.
