13 07 septoplasty nose rhinoplastyDescription: Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures available today. Size, shape and alignment en-dash whether due to injury or genes en-dash can be surgically corrected. Appearance isn't the only incentive for some people to consider this procedure: a misshapen nose can cause breathing problems, which rhinoplasty can correct.

How it's done: Depending on the characteristics of your nose, your doctor will choose either the open or closed method of surgery. In the open method, an incision is made across the skin between the nostrils. This allows the surgeon to see the internal structure of your nose better. While this may allow the surgeon to operate with greater precision and ease, there will be more swelling, and it will take you longer to recover. In the closed method, no external incision is made. It is used for less difficult cases.

Complications: Unusual; may be related to anesthetic or achieving a "perfect" result.

Recovery: Seven to 10 days; swelling for two to six weeks.

Cost: $8,000 to $12,000.
