Plastic surgery covers many different procedures. Also because there are two areas of plastic surgery the procedures can be divided into cosmetic surgery and reconstructive surgery. Rhinoplasty can fall under both but in most cases is performed as a cosmetic surgery more often than not. Rhinoplasty is the surgical procedure performed to improve the appearance of the nose. If you are someone who is unhappy with the look of your nose and looking to have it reshaped it be more aesthetically pleasing than rhinoplasty is going to be the best procedure for you in order to correct and abnormalities.
There is a lot that goes into the procedure of rhinoplasty and yet it is still considered a fairly simple surgery. In most cases, and depending on the type of surgery that you have, patients are only out of work for a week and can only expect a small amount of bruising and swelling for that entire week. The surgery itself is not a particularly painful procedure and thus is the reason that there are so many people opting to have it done. In fact, if you are an avid reader of most celebrity magazines you will notice how many actors, models, and singers are having the rhinoplasty procedure done.
There are varying costs between surgeons for this procedure and if the procedure is done as a form of reconstructive surgery it can be covered by many health insurance plans. This procedure is very common and is offered at most, if not all, cosmetic surgeons’ offices. If you have any questions about rhinoplasty and the rhinoplasty procedure you can contact a cosmetic surgeon near you at any time.
