Rhinoplasty is surgery to repair or reshape the nose for cosmetic reasons, or to correct a structural problem. The operation is often performed through the nostrils, which means there are no visible cuts to the face. Talk with your surgeon about the risks, benefits and what you can expect.
Rhinoplasty is surgery to repair or reshape the nose. This may be performed for cosmetic reasons to improve the appearance and proportion of the nose, and improve a person’s self-confidence.
Plastic surgery of the nose can also correct breathing problems caused by structural abnormalities in the nose. Almost all of these operations are performed through the nostrils, which means there are no visible cuts (or subsequent scars) to the face.
A nose job (also referred to as Rhinoplasty) is one of the oldest cosmetic surgeries dating back to 500 BC. Of course, the technology and procedure has since been extremely advanced and refined. Today, it is a very common and simple procedure yielding significant beautifying results.
Rhinoplasty can change the size of the nose, as well as its width and profile. The nose tip, shape of the nostrils and balance of the nose (nasal symmetry) can also be altered. Surgery of the nose can reduce or augment structures of the nose using cartilage grafted from other areas of the body. Occasionally, a piece of cartilage from the ear and (rarely) a section of rib cartilage may be used.
Some of the conditions that can be corrected by rhinoplasty include:
- Broken nose.
- Nasal structural problems, from birth defects of the nose or due to injury.
- Nasal obstruction.
- Self-consciousness about the size or shape of the nose.
If you’re looking for a highly effective method to change the size and shape of your nose and improve your appearance, then a nose job is something you should consider. Also, those who suffer from respiratory problem will benefit from this procedure.
