After thirty-five years of such surgery can be fraught with complications. Although there are no absolute contraindications, but patients with respiratory diseases, cancer and those suffering from poor blood clotting worth visiting specialists to rhinoplasty. Plastic surgeon before surgery will be asked to pass the relevant experts in order to confirm the absence of contraindications and readiness of the organism to serious surgical intervention.
Often patients find that after a rhinoplasty, their nose will be like the picture, but in practice this rarely happens.

It all individually. Plastic surgeons say that the final shape can be seen after six months, a year. You must have patience.
