Most people are unhappy with their noses for either aesthetic or health reasons. Deviated Septums are one of the most common reasons people choose to have Rhinoplasty. Having one can make it very difficult to breath properly. The other popular reason people choose Wilmington Rhinoplasty is for its aesthetic value. Some people feel self-conscious that their noses are too large or disproportionate to the rest of their face, some have bumps and disfigurements caused by injury, and still others feel their noses are too small or undefined.
The procedure itself, whatever the reason, generally takes about an hour to complete and the results are instantaneous. Of course there will be some initial swelling and bruising, but it should go down considerably over the coming days and weeks. Your bandages will then be removed anywhere from one to two weeks after the procedure and most patients return to work within a matter of days. Of course, every patient’s recovery is different, so it is important that you listen to your body and consult with your doctor if you have any questions.
