My friend Miranda had a beautiful face but then she was immensely worried about the way her nose looked – short flattened at the tip, somehow it marred her beauty she thought! Suddenly she announced that she was going to get a nose job done. Have to say I was surprised at her decision: first getting a rhinoplasty job is very expensive, something that an individual with a middle class background can not afford and secondly finding an expert surgeon is no less a daunting task so when Miranda declared her exciting news I was the first one to object!

Nonetheless I helped her check out a few clinics and cosmetics surgery experts in and around Atlanta. Initially both of us were a little skeptical about the surgery affair but with a few satisfied appointments to the credit Miranda finally got hold of a famous surgeon. All thanks to that clinic and its board certified plastic surgeons, she overcame her slight problem! They helped us understand what exactly is rhinoplasty, how it can be operated, how it can change the appearance of a person and what are the ingrained risks associated with rhinoplasty.

Rhinoplasty is not necessarily associated with enhancing the beauty of the face we were told. In fact anyone who has impaired breathing problem, has an injury because of an accident can opt for such kind of cosmetic surgery. Through a nose job one can alter the size of the nose, the width at the bridge, any kind of nasal asymmetry, bulbous tip etc.

In fact we were shown a mock video of the surgery as to how a rhinoplasty can change the nose profile. The video covered before and after surgery photographs that helped clarify Miranda's doubt – whether she wanted a nose job done or not.

When asked about risks associated with nose surgery we were informed that the most common types are nose bleeding, infection, numbness, swelling and scarring and recurrent pain. However the board certified plastic surgeons in the clinic assured that Miranda will not be facing any of these risks for she will be put under the team of very efficient doctors. When finally Miranda returned home after undergoing a successful surgery I have to say she looked like a celebrity star, beautiful with perfect facial features!

To sum up like Miranda you need to weigh your pros and cons before you choose the right clinic. Nose surgery is not as easy as it sounds as nose is a vital organ. Nonetheless make sure that you have taken proper care to choose your surgeon before you put yourself below the knife.
