A nose job or Rhinoplasty is performed to increase or decrease the size of the nose, sculpt and change the shape of the tip, bridge, bones, cartilage or nostril size. Nothing has a greater impact on how a person looks than the size and shape of the nose. Because the nose is the most defining characteristic of the face, a slight alteration can greatly improve one’s appearance. It is important to have realistic goals and expectations regarding the outcome and facial plastic surgeon. It is also important to consider why you want to have a nose job. The goal of this cosmetic plastic surgery procedure is to improve the nose aesthetically to better balance with the other facial features; sometimes breathing is improved at the same time. This is performed by making small incisions on the inside of the nose. There are no external incisions. The skin is lifted off of the cartilage and bone and the nose is then sculpted to the appropriate shape. The skin is then placed back in position and dissolvable sutures are used to close the incisions inside the nose. Click here for some of the best nose before and after photos.
