Plastic surgery of Nose (Rhinoplasty)

Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure to reshape the nose, improve breathing, or both. Also known as a “nose job,” it’s one of the top 5 cosmetic procedures.

Why Is Rhinoplasty Done?

Rhinoplasty may be elected or recommended for cosmetic or medical purposes:


If you feel the size or shape of your nose is out of balance with the rest of your face, even a small change can make a big difference. Rhinoplasty can improve elements such as nostril size and position, bridge width, visible bridge bumps or depressions, asymmetrical nostrils, or the proportion of the nose to the face.


In cases of a birth defect, facial trauma, or a nasal problem that affects your ability to breathe, rhinoplasty can repair damage from the deformity or injury or help clear obstructions or blockages — a deviated septum, for example — to improve breathing.
