Rhinoplasty, also called Nose Surgery or a “Nose Job,” is a popular procedure performed to improve the appearance, and sometimes the function, of the nose. As the central figure of our faces, the nose can make a big impact on our perceived overall facial harmony and balance (or lack thereof). Some common complaints we hear from people about their noses include the nose being disproportionately large, the bridge of the nose having bumps or indentations, crookedness, the tip of the nose being too upturned/down-turned/wide/narrow, the nostrils being too large or uneven, etc. Rhinoplasty can correct many of these types of aesthetic issues and more.
Rhinoplasty is performed using either an open or closed technique–meaning the incision is made inside the nose (closed) or outside the nose (open), depending on the changes you are making and your plastic surgeon’s recommendations. In addition to aesthetic concerns, the Rhinoplasty procedure can help people with a deviated septum or other structural obstructions.
