What is the Rhinoplasty?

Posted on Jan 14,2019 By Y. Anthony Nakamura

Many of us have heard of the rhinoplasty, or its more colloquial name – a “nose job.” It is one of the more common plastic surgery procedures mentioned in popular culture. The common perception is that only people with especially large or asymmetrical noses undergo, but that is a misconception. Many different types of people undergo rhinoplasties: if you have difficulty breathing or had any prior fractures, then you may be a candidate for a rhinoplasty. Some people only want minor modifications. It is a very common procedure that yields excellent results. There are many reasons why someone may want a rhinoplasty, including:

  • Nose is disproportionate to your face
  • Unwanted hump
  • Crooked or asymmetric nose
  • Large or bulbous tip
  • Breathing problems

If you have any concerns related to these problems, then a rhinoplasty may be the right option for you.

What is a rhinoplasty?

A rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that helps reshape your nose. It is performed by adding or removing parts of bone and cartilage in the nose. There are two types of rhinoplasty: open or closed. These techniques can be discussed with your doctor to find which one would benefit you the most. The main differences between these two is that during the open rhinoplasty, the incisions are made outside of the nose, and the closed rhinoplasty incisions are made inside of the nose.

Rhinoplasties are a very common procedure that cause minimal pain and discomfort afterward, but there is some bruising and swelling on the face. It not only helps your confidence and self-image, but can help to fix any breathing issues also.
