The Rhinoplasty procedure, or nose surgery, is performed to improve the appearance and/or function of the nose. The nose is a facial feature that many people feel self-conscious about for one reason or another. The nose may be too large, crooked, too upturned or down-turned, the nose may have bumps or indentations especially visible in the profile view of the nose, or the nostrils may be too wide or uneven. Rhinoplasty can correct most aesthetic nose complaints and function issues as well. Deviated septums and other blockages in the structure of the nose that make it difficult for air to pass through the nose can be improve through rhinoplasty.
Sometimes the rhinoplasty may be performed in combination with other procedures to create the more ideal facial harmony and balance between the features.
