Rhinoplasty (nose contouring) is a very common cosmetic procedure. The goal is to create a natural looking nose, which fits and complements the rest of the face. Patients seeking rhinoplasty, often ask for a combination of nose hump reduction, nose width reduction, tip refinement and projection and nostril reduction. A frequently overlooked issue is position of the chin. The chin has a profound effect on the overall facial profile. A "weak chin" is one of the common reasons for chin surgery. This procedure is commonly done in combination with rhinoplasty.
What's the down time?
Significant bruising, swelling and discomfort are unusual. Most people return to non-strenuous activity after a few days. If internal or external splints were placed, they are removed in about a week.
