When you look at someone’s face, their nose is likely one of the first things you take notice of. If you are less than satisfied with the appearance, shape or size of your nose, you’ll be glad to know that it doesn’t have to be permanent!
One of the most common plastic surgery procedures, rhinoplasty is an operation that changes the shape of the nose to have a more desired appearance.
Depending on the desired outcome, there are a few techniques that allow surgeons to reshape and adjust the structure of the nose. Rhinoplasty can involve changing the contour and shape of the bone, cartilage, skin or all three depending on your nose’s current composition and the goals you have for the results.
This particular operation can have many use cases. The most common patients for rhinoplasty are individuals that are unhappy with their nose size in relation to the rest of their face, have a nose profile with visible humps or depressions on the bridge, have an upturned or hooked nose or have nostrils that they wish to decrease in size.
Another great use of the rhinoplasty procedure is for individuals with a deviated septum, one of the most common causes of breathing impairment. Surgeons are able to adjust the nasal structure and passages to produce better alignment and symmetry.
