Rhinoplasty, nose reshaping surgery, is the most common of all plastic surgery procedures. Rhinoplasty is used to change the shape of the nose, correct structural or functional problems. Nose reshaping can improve the balance of your facial features and enhance your appearance.
There are several ways that rhinoplasty can refine the shape of your nose. Rhinoplasty can make your nose smaller or larger with implants. The size and shape of your nostrils, bridge, or the tip of your nose can be changed within limits. Rhinoplasty can reshape and improve the angles of your nose. Rhinoplasty is also used to correct birth defects or breathing problems.
During your initial consultation, you will discuss your expectations and surgical options with your doctor. You should tell your doctor about your concerns and the aspects of your nose that bother you, as well as, any prior trauma or surgery to the area surrounding your nose. Your doctor will examine your nose structure and skin integrity. He or she will explain the appropriate surgical procedure(s) that would safely obtain your desired results.
