You often hear rumors of celebrities having “work” done, and a commonly mentioned procedure is the nose job. A nose job, medically referred to as a rhinoplasty, is a very popular procedure. Some celebrities, like Jillian Michaels and Lisa Kudrow, are open about having rhinoplasty nose surgery. Both women even say that having the procedure changed their lives. Rhinoplasty is a highly beneficial procedure that can be utilized to solve medical or breathing problems or address any dissatisfaction you may have with the shape, size, or other aspects of your nose. In the video below, we briefly discuss the shape of the nose, and the various reasonings people have for choosing a rhinoplasty.

Rhinoplasty is completed either as an “open” or “closed” procedure. In an open rhinoplasty, a small incision is made across the strip of tissue separating your nostrils, and we take every care to hide the incision in the already existing, natural creases of your nose. An open rhinoplasty allows for the greatest visibility of the inner nasal structures. In a closed rhinoplasty, incisions are made within your nose, and scars are not visible externally.

Results from a rhinoplasty will begin to show a few weeks after the procedure, as swelling subsides. It may take from a few months up to a year for final definition and details of your nose shape to become fully apparent.
