A Rhinoplasty is a surgery to reshape the nose by altering its size, angle, curves, or proportions. The procedure can address the nostrils and tip as well. The surgery usually takes one hour and half to two hours and half. Its an outpatient surgery. Patients can usually return to work 7 to 10 days later. Risks include bleeding, infection, asymmetry, and complications due to anesthesia, however with todays technology and the doctors experience these risks are minimal.
