Not gonna lie, now that I’m done having babies, I am considering a little plastic surgery.
According to Pure Wow, the American Academy of Facial and Plastic Reconstructive Surgery say the number of millennials who got plastic surgery increased more than any other generation in 2021. The most requested procedure? Rhinoplasty.
Rhinoplasty is a facial surgery that changes the shape of the nose. Dara Liotta, a dual board-certified facial plastic surgeon in Manhattan, answered the basics about the procedure with “Pure Wow”
Who is rhinoplasty for? Technically anyone who wants a new nose but also those who understand that not everything is possible. “There are different variables to consider such as your natural anatomy, skin thickness, and cartilage stiffness, which have a big impact on the results that are possible.”
What are common misconceptions about the procedure? Social media “makes plastic surgery—rhinoplasty included—look like no big deal. While rhinoplasty is a fairly straightforward surgery, it is still a surgery on your face and you should take it seriously.”
How long does it take to heal? “It takes at least a full year to entirely heal from something like a rhinoplasty”
