A Rhinoplasty, known as well as nose job, is a cosmetic and plastic surgery common procedure for correcting and reconstructing the form, restoring the functions, and aesthetically enhancing the nose.
There are various reasons for patients to have a rhinoplasty performed : respiratory impediment (during the night), congenital defect, lack of self-esteem, injuries due to blast, blunt etc. Should you wish to have a rhinoplasty, we recommend that you envisage with your plastic surgeon a potential light cosmetic surgery of your mouth as both are linked from an aesthetic's perspective. You may then search for "rhynoplasty" AND "lip augmentation" or "lip reduction". The surgeon will perform incisions made inside the nose, where they are invisible. In some cases, an incision is made in the area of skin separating the nostrils. Next, the underlying bone and cartilage is reduced, augmented or rearranged to create a newly shaped structure. If any portion of the nose appears disproportionately small, cartilage or soft tissue grafts can be placed to create better harmony. The angles of the nose in relation to the upper lip or the forehead can also be altered by further sculpting the nasal support structure.
