Rhinoplasty is a process that is commonly known as “nose reshaping” or a “nose job”. Rhinoplasty is typically utilized to enhance facial aesthetics. However, it is also a corrective procedure that can repair breathing deficiencies brought about by structural defects in the nose.

How is this operation performed? A qualified doctor will start by lifting the skin of the nose from the underlying structures beneath. Next, the proper alterations will be made to the bone and the cartilage. The skin will then be placed back over the nasal structures, and the healing process will begin.

People consider nose reshaping for a myriad of reasons ranging from difficulty breathing, nasal injuries, to physical enhancement.

Rhinoplasty can correct many issues relating to the nose, including:

  • Balancing nose size to match facial features

  • Aligning nose width to the size of the nostrils

  • Smoothing nose profiles which contains bump or depressions

  • Altering the tip of the nose when it is enlarged, upturned, or sagging

  • Overall nasal asymmetry

  • Improving obstructed airways

  • Correcting deviated septum

Whether you are seeking rhinoplasty for improved facial features or as a way to improve your health, surgery is a big decision. Nasal surgery is a very delicate and intricate procedure. In fact, “According to the latest statistics released by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). Many plastic surgeons feel rhinoplasty is the most artistic and difficult cosmetic surgical procedure” (The Rhinoplasty Society).
