rhinoplasty, what to expect?

Rhinoplasty expect.: The doctor you see will review all the items to expect from surgery. Your realistic expectations are first and foremost. The nose continues to shape and improve over 1-2 years as well. Some patients experience more healing time to see the changes. Thicker skin noses will take more time to heal. You may experience nasal congestion. Be prepared for a change in your look. Know what is possible.
