It involves changing the size, shape, or angle of the nose, as well as removing of defects. Only licensed cosmetic or plastic surgeons are permitted to perform the procedure.
There are two ways in which a nose job is done; surgical and non-surgical procedure. From the name itself, non-surgical rhinoplasty does not require surgery, while the former is its opposite.

Touch-ups may be needed in as early as six months. This is because the procedure is temporary. However, it can fix problems like bump issues and slight nasal tip defects on an instant. The procedure cannot change the size of your nose.

The healing time takes longer and the nose at this point is very sensitive. You will need more rest and can only get back to work upon doctor’s advice, which usually lasts for three weeks. Discomfort continues throughout the healing process, which is why proper caring after surgery is a must.

You can already wet your nose by the time the splint has fallen off, but stay away from chlorinated waters until the nose as fully recovered.
