A nose job - as the name suggests involves reshaping of the nose to get the desired look. Earlier the technique was used as a part of the treatment to cure breathing difficulties and infections in nasal cavities. But nowadays with more people leaning towards cosmetic aesthetics, this has become more of a cosmetic treatment than of an actual cure. In medical terms, the nose surgery is known as the Rhinoplasty treatment. During the treatment, the cosmetologist will make a cut inside the nostrils using precision instruments. In some extreme cases if the hole is minuscule an incision might be done on the bridge of the nose. The inner bones and cartilage are then cut to get the desired shape and look. Before the nose reshaping, a detailed counseling session should be held with the cosmetologist to discuss your needs and what you can expect. The surgery is performed with local anesthesia, and it is usually an outpatient procedure. After the procedure, a nose splint is worn for two weeks. A person can resume his normal activities in a few days. Swelling and bruising are common symptoms, and these will disappear over a period of time. Taxing physical work and pressurized work should be avoided initially. The average recuperation time will be around six months, and the actual desired look of the nose can be realized only by then. It is advisable to go with the experience of the cosmetologist to get the best treatment available.
