Rhinoplasty, also known as a “nose job,” is considered a major surgery. It is an invasive procedure that requires anaesthesia and can involve a significant recovery period. The procedure involves reshaping the bones and cartilage of the nose in order to change its shape or size, or to correct structural abnormalities. The procedure is typically performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon with specialised training in facial surgery.
It is important to have realistic expectations and understand the risks and recovery time before deciding to undergo rhinoplasty. It is also important to choose a qualified and experienced surgeon to minimise the risk of complications and to ensure the best possible outcome. Overall, rhinoplasty is a major surgical procedure that should be taken seriously and good communication with the surgeon before the surgery is paramount.
