Rhinoplasty is the technical term for a “nose job.” It is the cosmetic
procedure known for resizing and reshaping the nose, but it can also help
correct breathing difficulties. If you are not satisfied with the size
or shape of your nose, this procedure may address the “problem area,”
creating a better shape that you have been imagining all of these years.
By definition, rhinoplasty refers to any type of plastic surgery to the
nose. This exciting procedure has been performed on millions of men and
women worldwide to:
- Reshape the nose
- Resize the nose
- Alter the width of the bridge
- Alter the appearance of a hump
- Reposition and reshape the nasal tip
- Alter the size of the nostrils
- Alter asymmetry, especially after an injury
Is rhinoplasty right for you? Making a decision to undergo elective surgery
is an individual choice. The question you have to ask yourself is, “How
do I feel about my nose?” If you do not like your nose because you
think it’s too large, too wide, or crooked, you may want to consider
Do keep in mind that people’s noses change as they age. For example,
the nose changes shape during the teenage years, and later in life, the
tip may appear to droop due to changes in support.
Though the nose area is very small, rhinoplasty is actually one of the
most complicated operations performed by plastic surgeons. That said,
your surgeon’s experience will have a direct impact on your results.
