A nose is positioned in the center of the face therefore; it plays an integral role in determining your level of beauty and appeal. Unfortunately, many people are born with a large, bumpy, wide, flared or long nose.
Rhinoplasty also known as a nose job is a cosmetic surgery procedure that aims to improve and correct the size, shape or angle of a nose and give it a balanced and beautiful appearance.
Men and women who are dissatisfied with their nose can opt for rhinoplasty. Other than for cosmetic reasons rhinoplasty can also be used to correct any breathing difficulty caused by a deviated septum.
Good candidates for rhinoplasty are those people who have realistic expectations attached to the surgery. Many celebrities such as Megan Fox, Angelina Jolie, Zach Efron and Nigella Lawson have amplified their beauty by reshaping their nose.

Does rhinoplasty surgery hurt?
During the surgical procedure, you are either given local or general anesthesia both of which make you numb to any sensation being felt so it becomes impossible to feel any pain. However, once the effect of anesthesia fades away you will feel discomfort on your nose in the bandaged area that will subside within a couple of days. Painkillers and relaxants are given after surgery to ease any discomfort or mild pain.

Nasal packing after rhinoplasty surgery involves the insertion of gauze into the nostrils to support the new nose structure and prevent bleeding. Nose packing can help prevent some complications but can also increase the patient’s level of discomfort and hinder his mobility.
