Dr. Babak Azizzadeh, a Rhinoplasty Specialist, Released a New Article That Answers Common Questions About Nose Jobs

“The Most Common Nose Job Questions”. This is the title of the new article of Dr. Babak Azizzadeh of Beverly Hills, California, at RhinoplastyNet.com. “Am I a Good Candidate?” and “What is the Recovery Like?” are just some of the questions answered. Dr. Azizzadeh, who sees patients in Los Angeles explains, “Patients should rest for the first day after surgery, and not begin strenuous activity for two to three weeks. Full recovery after rhinoplasty is actually a slow process. Final results aren’t seen for up to a year or two after surgery. That shouldn’t be a deterrent, though, because it is only subtle swelling that remains after the first few months.”
