What is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is a surgery performed to repair and/or change the shape of the nose to make it work and/or look better. Rhinoplasty procedures can make your nose larger, smaller, correct bumps or change the angle of the nose to fit your upper lip. Indentations in the nose, the shape of the tip of the nose, and other defects in the nose can also be changed during rhinoplasty.

Benefits of Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is performed to enhance the appearance of the nose, or to correct structural problems in it that can cause breathing problems. If you are having rhinoplasty for cosmetic reasons, your nose will look better and compliment your face more after the procedure. If you are having the surgery for corrective reasons, you should be able to breathe better and will suffer from congestion, less often. Many people choose to have rhinoplasty for both cosmetic and corrective reasons.

How is Rhinoplasty Performed?

Rhinoplasty may be performed on an outpatient basis or require an overnight stay in the hospital, depending upon the surgery’s complexity. Local or general anesthesia may be used. The surgeon makes an incision inside the nose to remove bone or cartilage or to add tissue. Sometimes, bone or cartilage is moved from another part of the body to the nose, or synthetic filler is added. Other procedures can be done as well to improve the nose’s function or shape.
