Rhinoplasty is surgery to reshape the nose. It can make the nose larger or smaller; change the angle of the nose in relation to the upper lip; alter the tip of the nose; or correct bumps, indentations, or other defects in the nose.
During rhinoplasty, we make incisions to access the bones and cartilage that support the nose. The incisions are usually made inside the nose so that they are invisible after the surgery. Depending on the desired result, some bone and cartilage may be removed, or tissue may be added.
The procedure not only improves your appearance, but it also improves the way that you see yourself. For many people, their nose makes them feel self-conscious and forces them to act shy and timid around others. By improving the appearance of your nose through the rhinoplasty, you will feel more confident.
It increases your facial harmony. If your nose is not proportionate to the rest of your facial features, it can be a distraction to you and to others.
It improves the structure of your nose and can make it easier for you to breathe. Depending on the work that you have done during the operation, you might even find that you do not snore as much at night.
