The 101 on Nose Jobs

Contrary to popular belief, our faces aren’t symmetrical. Humans aren’t born with symmetrical features, and sometimes that manifests itself a bit too plainly in how our noses look.

Luckily, if you’re unhappy with the size or shape of your nose, you can have Dr. Randall B. Weil at Randall B. Weil MD, FACS in San Francisco, California, change its appearance completely.

How does it work?

A nose job, or as it’s known in the medical field, a rhinoplasty, is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the country. It’s performed under either local or general anesthesia, depending on the depth of the procedure.

Your nose can be altered in virtually any fashion. Whether you need it skinnier, larger, or you want the tip of your nose changed, it’s all possible during a rhinoplasty.

What’s the recovery like?

A lot of people are eager to know what the recovery process for a rhinoplasty is like. While it differs from person to person, you can usually count on anywhere from one to two weeks for recovery. The procedure itself is a very safe one, seeing as nose jobs are performed every day in the country. Any surgery has risks but the ones presented in a rhinoplasty are minimal.

You’ll need to have an in-depth consultation with Dr. Randall B. Weil before deciding on the best course of action for your rhinoplasty. If you’re ready to change the look of your nose, call today to schedule your consultation.
