Woman's Nose Before And After Plastic SurgeryYour nose plays a crucial role in shaping your overall facial appearance. Even the smallest variation in size or shape can significantly impact your look. Some types of nose variations can even make it difficult to breathe. If you are unhappy with the size or shape of your nose, you may have considered rhinoplasty but are wondering if the procedure can address the specific concerns you have with your nose. You may be glad to know that rhinoplasty, also known as a “nose job” or nose reshaping, can correct many of your ]cosmetic and functional concerns. Keep reading to learn more.

Rhinoplasty Addresses a Wide Variety of Concerns

Rhinoplasty is the surgical reconstruction and reshaping of the bone and cartilage of the nose.

A Large Nose

Through rhinoplasty, your plastic surgeon can decrease the size of your nose by removing small amounts of bone and cartilage.

A Misshapen Nose Tip

A large or misshapen bump on the tip of your nose can detract from the overall cosmetic appeal of your face, as can an upturned or drooping nose tip.

Some Breathing Problems

Some issues with your nose can prevent you from breathing well. These issues may include inflammation in your sinuses, deviated septum, or a blockage in your nasal airway.

Concerns With the Bridge of the Nose

The bridge is the upper half of your nose, between your eyes and just below them. Bridge rhinoplasty can smooth bumps and depressions and build up flat spots to create an aesthetically pleasing nasal bridge.

Congenital Disorders

Rhinoplasty may correct certain congenital disorders, such as a cleft lip.

Sinus Problems

Certain nasal issues, such as a deviated septum, can cause chronic sinus problems, which can be corrected with a septoplasty. This procedure is similar to a rhinoplasty in that it is a nose surgery; however, a septoplasty corrects issues in the nasal septum.
