A snub and small nose. There was a time in which this was the most requested type of nose by women to the plastic surgeons. And, as in any "standard", for some of those women it was just perfect, while it was somewhat weird for others. Currently, before any surgery, the physician studies the forms that harmonize the face, giving you not only a pretty nose, but the whole set. And if you still have not taken courage to have this surgery, the news is encouraging. The esthetic rhinoplasty (technical name of the plastic surgery in the nose) is a simple surgery with a short recovery time. As a matter of fact, it is one of the most practiced cosmetic surgeries in Brazil and in the world.
So much for men as for women, the plastic surgery in the nose is indicated from age of 15, when the person has already completed the bone growth. As always, before the surgery laboratory tests will be carried out in order to assess the existence of an occasional contraindication. In addition, it is also necessary to provide a photographic image for future comparisons (the "famous" before and after).
The surgery is quick; it lasts about one hour and is performed with local anesthesia or sedation. The stay in the clinic is also short, about 2 to 8 hours. After the surgery it is necessary to use an internal tampon for 24 hours, besides the plastered or plastic plate that is placed in the nose for seven days.
Fifteen days later the surgery the bruises completely disappear and you are ready to show your new nose for the first time!
