A deviated septum is a condition in which the piece of bone and cartilage that divides the nasal cavity in half is either significantly off-center or crooked. It is something that you can be born with or something that happens as a result of trauma to your nose such as blunt force injury to the face. However, having a deviated septum can have a considerable effect on your ability to live an active and fulfilling life.
Being unhappy with an aspect of your appearance is not unusual. For many women, the feature that makes them the most self-conscious is their breasts. This part of the female form is often associated with femininity and attractiveness, and sometimes women who have been graced with smaller breasts feel that they lack some of these traits. You might also feel that your breasts look out of proportion for your frame, or you want to enjoy shopping for a different style of clothes. Whatever your reason for considering breast augmentation surgery, our experienced surgeon, Dr. Jaimie Garza, can transform the appearance of your shape and give you the curves that you desire.
Otoplasty, better known as ear correction surgery, is a very common procedure that is designed to alter the size or shape of the ears, or to pin them back closer to the head if they are particularly obtrusive. It is most often carried out on adolescents, although it isn’t unusual for an adult to opt for this procedure in later life. Although it is not the most invasive of cosmetic procedures, it is still important that you allow yourself or your child sufficient time to recover and heal after their surgery. This will help to reduce the risk of complications and ensure that you achieve the best possible cosmetic result from the procedure.
Although cosmetics have come a long way in the last few decades, it is still virtually impossible to change the appearance of the shape or size of our nose. This central feature cannot be hidden behind hair or altered using non-surgical procedures. As such, rhinoplasty surgery remains one of the most common types of cosmetic surgery in the United States.
Rhinoplasty is recommended for patients who are unhappy with the appearance of their nose and would like to make cosmetic changes to improve the size, shape or position of this prominent feature. Since it is possible to change various elements of the nose, exactly what will happen during your rhinoplasty will depend on those areas of your nose that you would most like addressed. Nevertheless, a rhinoplasty is a fairly invasive procedure and you will need to give yourself plenty of time to heal and recover. So, what is the recovery process from rhinoplasty surgery, and what elements are most important to understand? Here is our guide to what you need to know about your rhinoplasty recovery.
