Rhinoplasty is a procedure to improve the aesthetic qualities of the nose by increasing or decreasing the overall size, correcting bumps or indentations, correcting nostril size or shape, and changing the shape and direction of the tip of the nose. Many men and women feel self-conscious of the appearance of their nose for many personal reasons. A rhinoplasty procedure may also be performed to improve nose function if there are structural obstructions causing issues in air passage. A deviated septum is one of the most common examples of a functional issue that may lead to rhinoplasty. For some patients the decision to seek out rhinoplasty is motivated by a combination of Aesthetic and Functional issues.
The Rhinoplasty procedure may take two to three hours to perform and is done typically under general anesthesia.
