Individuals usually choose rhinoplasty or a nose job for both aesthetic and medical reasons. Rhinoplasty surgery can enhance the natural beauty of a face and reshape the nose to make it more proportional to the rest of the face. In the hands of a skilled surgeon, the procedure can correct deformities related to trauma or just plain unfortunate genetics. Others choose rhinoplasty for functional reasons. Rhinoplasty can correct structural defects of the nose that can impair breathing. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, nose reshaping procedures, or rhinoplasty, remain among the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures. Every year almost 250,000 people undergo the procedure.
During surgery, bumps can be smoothed out, tip lifted or made shorter and the nose can also be reduced in size. The nose can be widened or narrowed, depending on the patients’ needs. If the nose is turned downward, crooked, or enlarged, a rhinoplasty procedure can also correct these defects. During the initial consultation with your rhinoplasty surgeon, you should discuss your aesthetic goals and your plastic surgeon will develop a plan of action on which both of you should agree.
