Beautiful Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty)
Your Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty)
A harmonious balance in your facial features is very important to many people. The nose, which is centered in the middle of the face, is the most noticeable facial feature. For some people, the nose may not be in balance with the rest of their facial features. The nose may be crooked. The nose may be too wide or narrow or too long or short. The nasal bridge may have a bump or depression. The nasal tip may be droop and plunge. The nostrils can be excessively flared. The nasal airways can also be obstructed leading to breathing problems. If you feel that your nose is not a good fit, you may benefit from cosmetic nose surgery, also called rhinoplasty.

Alterations can be made to increase or decrease the nasal bridge, reduce the size or width of the nose, narrow in nostrils, reshape the tip, or change the angle between the nose and upper lip. To correct the breathing difficulties, the surgeon may perform a turbinectomy or septoplasty if these structures are the cause of the problem.
