I WANT A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT NOSE
My great smile and nice eyes don’t seem to matter much because my nose dominates my face. It is wide, especially at the nostrils. The nostrils are much too large. The shape in profile is unpleasant, almost like a hump at both the top and the bottom. Can I get an entire new nose with rhinoplasty? How many days would I need for recovery?
Rhinoplasty can make major changes to the shape and size of the nose, but it can not give you an entirely new nose. The surgeon has to work with the anatomy that the patient starts with. Most patients go back to work after 1 week or so, but full recovery takes significantly longer than 1 week.
