Often referred to as a “nose job,” Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that renovates the nose, restoring facial harmony. Yet, it can also repair structural abnormalities within the nose such as a deviated septum so as to correct impaired breathing.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons explains the advantages of surgical rhinoplasty and what it can treat. For individuals that desire a more symmetrical nose, rhinoplasty can alter the size of the nose in relation to the face to create a balanced appearance. Other changes include the nose width at the bridge, as well as the size and position of the nostrils. In other instances, the profile of a nose is corrected by removing visible humps or depressions along the bridge. With great precision, surgeons can address an enlarged nasal tip, or one that is drooping, upturned or hooked. Without question, surgical rhinoplasty is an individualized procedure, and requires the expertise of a qualified and experienced facial plastic surgeon.
