Rhinoplasty or simply a ‘nose job’, is a surgical way of reshaping, reforming and changing the functionality, size or shape of a nose. It is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgeries for both cosmetic and medical reasons.
There are several ‘nose job’ procedures, which tackle different concerns:
- Reduction Rhinoplasty makes the nose smaller
- Septorhinoplasty alters the external appearance and the internal septum
- Rhinotip alters the tip of the nose and nostrils.
Rhinoplasty is mostly performed under general anaesthesic. A small incision is made along the base of the nose. This incision is connected to incisions inside the nose, which cannot be seen. These incisions allow access to the cartilage and bones of the nose where next, nasal reshaping is performed through meticulous and careful adjustment to the bone and cartilage.
Some people think that certain aspects of their nose do not align with their facial features. In these cases, they seek to modify the length of the nose, reshape the tip or the bridge of their nose, or even adjust the width of the nostrils. In some cases, people elect nose surgery following injury or as a result of breathing problems.
