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 rhinoplasty.
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.
