Known as a “nose job,” rhinoplasty is performed to reshape the nose so that it appears more proportionate to one’s other facial features.
Rhinoplasty / Septoplasty Q & A
What is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is performed to make a patient’s nose proportions appear more harmonious with their other facial features through altering the bone, cartilage and/or skin on the nose. It involves reshaping the size, width, length, angle and/or structure of the nose. Rhinoplasty can also be helpful to improve breathing issues.
What Does Rhinoplasty Treat?
Nose surgery can be helpful to make the nose more symmetrical and proportionate in relation to the rest of a patient’s facial features either for personal aesthetic preference, to correct deformities from trauma, a birth defect, or to improve breathing issues. It can help:
- Breathing issues
- A deviated septum or obstructed nasal airway
- Make the nose size more balanced with other facial features
- Adjust the width of the nose’s bridge
- Adjust the size and shape of the nostrils
- Reduce noticeable nose humps
- Enhance depressions on the nose bridge
- Enhance the contour or profile of the nose
- Adjust the shape of the nasal tip, especially if it is oversized, drooping, or crooked
- Correct nasal asymmetry
