New developments increase popularity of rhinoplasty
March 1, 2011
In the early years of cosmetic surgery, people may have been hesitant to undergo rhinoplasty because they feared that the results would be unsatisfactory and recovery would take too long. However, new developments in the plastic surgery field now offer more security for those considering the procedure, according to NBC affiliate KPVI.
The news source reports that approximately 15 percent of all nose operations are redone and recovery time has decreased dramatically. New procedures and technological devices help to increase patient satisfaction, offer more options for surgeons to correct unsatisfactory nose operations and facial reconstruction.
Now, patients may be able to have a better grasp on how they will look after they have recovered from surgery. Computers and applications allow individuals to see images of themselves with potential results for their prospective nose.
New technology, including new options for implant material used during nose operations, among other developments, has encouraged younger adults and teenagers to undergo plastic surgery, which could help increase their self-confidence.
Even so, rhinoplasties are still procedures that require appropriate training and attention to detail. When considering a rhinoplasty, look for your plastic surgeon’s Board Certification and their membership in organizations such as The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
