Rhinoplasty or more commonly known as nose surgery is used to reshape the nose and is one of the most common of all plastic surgery procedures. Rhinoplasty can reduce or increase the size of your nose, change the shape of the top or the bridge, narrow the span of the nostrils, or change the angle between your nose and your upper lip. It can also be used to correct a birth defect, injury or help relieve some breathing problems.
It can enhance your appearance and self confidence but it won’t necessarily change your looks to match your ideal, or cause other people to treat you differently. The best candidates for this surgery are people who are looking for improvement, not perfection, in the way they look. If you are physically healthy, psychologically stable, and realistic in your expectations, you may be a good candidate.
As with all surgeries there is always a possibility of complications including infection, nosebleed, or a reaction to the anesthesia.
In preparing for your surgery you will get specific instructions including guidelines on eating, drinking, and smoking. Before the surgery you must quit smoking and may not resume smoking until you are completely healed. Smoking can cause skin death and cause permanent scares. You must fill all your pain killing medications before the surgery. Also, have a nice little recovery area with all your necessities. You need lots of pillows, books magazines, the television remote, videos, favorite CDs, nasal spray, hot water bottles or heating pads, and a bucket incase you need to vomit.
The surgery alone only takes one to two hours. During surgery the skin of the nose is separated from its supporting framework of the bone and cartilage and is then sculpted to the desired shape. After the sculpting is over the skin gets redraped over the new framework.
After surgery especially during the first 24 hours your face will…...

...interest in cosmetic surgeries is not only popular amongst the older generations seeking their young adult bodies but is also progressively more popular with teenagers seeking the “picture perfect body.” Although teen surgeries made up less than 2% of all cosmetic surgeries in 2007, the obsession produced by modern media to emulate the flawless bodies of the rich and famous puts added pressure on teens to undergo the knife. In today’s society of high-tech devices and “quick fixes,” teens now, more than ever desire the immediate gratification associated with these popular surgeries. The most common procedures for teenagers in 2007 as stated by the ASAPS were “laser hair removal, microdermabrasion, chemical peel, otoplasty (ear reshaping) and rhinoplasty” (The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, 2007). Cosmetic surgery is a growing entity which needs to be assessed with a critical eye by surgeons, parents, and teens themselves for risks and future complications that may arise. In order to understand the full aspect of cosmetic surgery it is imperative to take a deeper look at the negative impact these surgeries can have on a teenager. The most obvious of the risks linked to these types of procedures is the unnecessary danger it poses to one’s physical health. Between the time of the first cut and just hours after surgery, the body is vulnerable to infections. According to A Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Resource (2009), common signs of infection may include......

It was here that he teamed up with Quincy Jones, who was arranging the film's musical score. Jones agreed to produce Jackson's next solo album, Off the Wall.[28] In 1979, Jackson broke his nose during a complex dance routine. His subsequent rhinoplasty was not a complete success; he complained of breathing difficulties that would affect his career. He was referred to Dr. Steven Hoefflin, who performed Jackson's second rhinoplasty and subsequent operations.[29] Jones and Jackson produced the Off the Wall album together. Songwriters for the album included Jackson, Rod Temperton, Stevie Wonder, and Paul McCartney. Released in 1979, it was the first solo album to generate four U.S. top 10 hits, including the chart-topping singles "Don't Stop 'til You Get Enough" and "Rock with You".[30][31] It reached number three on the Billboard 200 and eventually sold over 20 million copies worldwide.[32] In 1980, Jackson won three awards at the American Music Awards for his solo efforts: Favorite Soul/R&B Album, Favorite Soul/R&B Male Artist, and Favorite Soul/R&B Single for "Don't......

The hospital is noted for its three fine programs: Oncology (cancer), Cardia (heart), and Rhinoplasty (nose jobs). Part I. Section A The managers at Denison have been busy working. They have reviewed past records, considered changes in competition, the general economy, and overall medical trends. Using past changes and anticipated rates of medical inflation, they have also made a first attempt at setting their prices. Based on a thorough review and discussion of these data, they have projected that next year will have 240 patients. They expect 120 oncology patients, 80 cardiac patients, and 40 rhinoplasty patients. The charge, or list price, for Oncology patients will average $50,000. Cardiac patients will be charged an average of $40,000, and rhinoplasty, $25,000 per patient. However, those charges often are not the actual amount ultimately received. The amount the hospital receives depends on whether patients pay their own hospital bills or have health care insurance. Assume that private insurance companies pay the full charge or list price. However, Medicare and Medicaid have announced rates they will pay for the coming year as follows: Oncology patients $40,000, Cardiac patients, $30,000, Rhinoplasty $10,000.

...will outweigh the costs. Many older Americans are willing to make this gamble. Some older Americans view cosmetic procedures as an investment and are willing to finance the investment with loans. "Plastic surgery loans can involve financing charges of 12-19 percent, according to industry experts" (Zeidler, 2009, p. 1). Costs are affected by a myriad of factors. The most popular procedure among older Americans is injectable wrinkle fillers, such as Botox® or Radiesse®. The costs of these injectable wrinkle fillers are usually less expensive than the more invasive cosmetic surgeries; such as a face-lift or rhinoplasty. Wrinkle fillers have a short life, typically six to 12 months, and the costs range anywhere from $275 to $2,000 per treatment depending on the type of injection. The average cost of facelift cosmetic surgery ranges from $6,000 to $15,000. The average rhinoplasty surgery cost ranges from $4,000 to $12,000. The costs of invasive surgeries will vary depending on the surgeon and his or her experience. For example, a newer surgeon with less experience may charge less for procedures than a more experienced surgeon. Some surgeons offer "wide awake facelifts." The method is similar to a "traditional face-lift," with the exception of a smaller incision and no anesthesia. The cost of this procedure opposed to the "traditional face-lift" is less than half. According to Dr. Payman Simoni, not only is this procedure less expensive, the recovery time is cut as well......

...qualities in a person or a thing that give pleasure to the senses or the mind (Merriam-Webster).In today's society teenagers too often turn to cosmetic surgery in their drive to reach perfection. Should there be a limit or should today's society redefine the meaning of beauty? As it is said, beauty is in the eye of the beholder; but that seems to have changed over time. The way the media has portrayed beauty it gives off an illusion of what a teenager growing up is supposed to look like once they are older. This has caused for teenagers to chase an impossible goal of being picture perfect and are willing to take risks to look the way they wish to. The most popular cosmetic surgeries between teens under the of 18 are: Otoplasty (ear surgery), Rhinoplasty (nose reshaping), Breast reduction,Correction of breast asymmetry and Treatment of Gynecomastia. (The American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery). These surgeries seem to be what teenagers feel may be what is holding them back from reaching their goal perfection without thinking of the risks.In the media almost everyone has the perfect body and the perfect face. By seeing this so much in the media cosmetic surgery seems like the easy way to reach the goals of looking "perfect" without knowing the risks. According to the article Journal of Adolescent Health, breast implants typically last approximately 10 years. The likelihood of capsular contracture and other complications requiring surgery also increase over time, so......

Article Review

...March 2014, the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) released an article where they inform the reader about the relationship between the ‘selfie’ trend and the increase demand for facial plastic surgery. Methodology Behind The Study For this study the AAFPRS studied a “select group of the organization’s 2,700 members to uncover the latest trends in facial plastic surgery.” Findings “The study revealed that one in three facial plastic surgeons surveyes saw an increase in requests for procedures due to patients being more self aware of looks in social media.” The members that completed the survey stated that they noted an increase of 10% during 2013 when compared to 2012 of patients getting rhinoplasty; a 7% increase in hair transplant and a 6% increase in eyelid surgery. It was also reported by the surgeons that they saw an increase in patients under the age of 30 getting procedures done. Critical Reflections It is not a surprise that social media will increase the workload for cosmetic and reconstructive surgeons. The ‘selfie’ trend keeps increasing among teens and young adults. The ‘selfie’ consists of taking a picture of yourself with your own camera, and they are usually pictures that will focus on the individuals face. Usually when taking a ‘selfie’ the individual takes several pictures and selects the best one, and it’s in that process where all the concerns and self-critiques arises. Big nose, pronounced jaw,......

Michael Jackson

...extensively from 1966 to 1968. They recorded several songs and started peaking to the top of the charts. Michael Jackson was quickly becoming known as the prodigy. After leaving Motown they signed with Epic Records and renamed themselves The Jacksons. In 1978 Michael played a lead role in the movie The Wiz. In 1979, Michael broke his nose; his rhinoplasty wasn’t a success and caused breathing problems that would affect his career. In 1980 he started winning multiple awards for all his work. Also in 1980 he secured the highest royalty rate in the music industry: 37 percent of wholesale album profit was made. Although Michael may have lived the life many people strive for their whole lives, he had his fair share of insecurity and problems too. These lead to drastic changes in his health and his appearance. Starting at the mid 1980’s it was clear that Michael’s appearance was changing severely. Not only was his skin becoming lighter but his nose and facial structure was changing and he began losing weight. The lighter skin tone was caused by vitiligo and lupus, which he was diagnosed with in 1986. Surgeons speculated he also had rhinoplasty, a forehead lift, cheekbone surgery, and altered his lips. It was said by 1990 he had undergone ten procedures. Jackson’s relationship with his father caused him to be very emotional and make him vomit to an extreme. This caused him body dysmophic disorder, which caused compulsion with his cosmetic surgery, an expression of self......

Ethical Dilemmas in Health Care

...Ethical Dilemmas in Global Health Care: Cosmetic Surgery on Children Grand Canyon University NRS-437V November 13, 2011   Ethical Dilemmas in Global Health Care: Cosmetic Surgery on Children Nationally and internationally public awareness and concerns regarding cosmetic surgery on children is increasing (Kitiparnchai & Then, 2011). The United States of America had over 36,000 cosmetic procedures on children just in 2009 (Kitiparnchai & Then, 2011). These elective cosmetic procedures include: rhinoplasty, breast augmentation, otoplasty, liposuction, tummy tucks, and westernizing eye surgery (blepharoplasty) for Asian children (Kitiparnchai & Then, 2011; Ouellette, 2009). Blephroplasty widens the eyes of Asians, and is even performed on newborns (Ouellette, 2009). There is no specific law that blocks the use of plastic surgery on children (Ouellette, 2009). The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery code of ethics states merely that surgical operation should not be performed if it is not calculated to improve or benefit the patient (Ouellette, 2009). The Australian Medical Association position statement on body image and health states that “ patients under 18 years of age should not have procedures to modify or enhance physical appearance, unless it is in their medical and or psychological interest” (Kitiparnchai & Then, 2011, p. 514).There is no explanation by either of these entities on how we should determine if it is in their medical and or...
