Rhinoplasty, also called nose surgery, is a procedure performed to improve the appearance of the nose. This nose reshaping surgery can help to not only improve the appearance of the nose itself, but the overall appearance of the patient’s face by improving the proportional facial balance and harmony. Common aesthetic complaints for the nose include: bumps and indentations, a nose bridge that is too wide or too narrow, and the angle between the nose and upper lip.
In addition to aesthetic concerns, Rhinoplasty can also be used to improve the function of the nose when there is an obstruction in the structure of the nose that is causing breathing issues. Rhinoplasty is performed either through an open approach or a closed approach–meaning the incision is made inside the nose (closed) or outside the nose (open).
