What Is Cosmetic Nose Surgery? and am I a good candidate for it?
Time To Read: 4 Minutes
Cosmetic Nose Surgery or Rhinoplasty
Cosmetic Nose Surgery, also known as Rhinoplasty, can improve the appearance and proportion of your nose – enhancing facial harmony and self-confidence. Cosmetic Nose Surgery may also improve a breathing problem or correct abnormalities caused by trauma or a birth defect, and the procedure can change your nose’s overall size, tip, bridge and nostrils.
Rhinoplasty is surgery that changes the shape of the nose. The motivation for Rhinoplasty may be to change the appearance of the nose, improve breathing or both. The upper portion of the structure of the nose is bone, and the lower portion is cartilage. Rhinoplasty can change bone, cartilage, skin or all three. Talk with your surgeon about whether Rhinoplasty is appropriate for you and what it can achieve.
Cosmetic Nose Surgery is a highly individualized procedure, with the best results achieved through a thorough consultation with your cosmetic surgeon.
