Nose surgery (rhinoplasty) is a procedure to reshape the nose in order to create a more pleasing balanced look and, in some instances, to correct breathing problems. Rhinoplasty usually involves reducing the size of the nose by removing and sculpting the nasal tissues in order to enhance the facial appearance.
The results are unique to each individual and depend upon such factors as skin condition and thickness, nasal and facial structure, genetic contributions, and age.
Traditionally, a ‘nose job’ was performed only to correct major problems. However, recent surgical innovations allow individuals to benefit from more moderate improvements from the procedure as well. In general, undergoing rhinoplasty surgery aims to provide balanced aesthetics but is a tailored procedure to that individual.
