What Is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic surgery conducted on the nose to reshape or resize the nose, and also to correct the breathing problems. This procedure helps to make the nose appear better, and improves any functional disorders. It is a safe method to alter the nose size in relation to the rest of the face.

It also can change the width of the nose bridge and reduces the appearance of humps or depressions on nose. Other corrections that can be done through this procedure are the position of the nasal tip, the size of the nostrils, and the symmetry of both nostrils.

What is the Procedure of Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is done under general anesthesia during which the plastic surgeon will add or remove the bones and cartilage from the nose. This is done to change the form or functionality of the nose.

The other options to enhance the aesthetics are adding a cartilage graft or remodeling of the tip to make it look younger and fitter. Fillers or fat grafts can also be put in to increase the volume and give that youthful look. Some patients prefer silicone, but it comes with its risks of infection.
