What is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty procedure, commonly, but somewhat less glamorously, known as a “nose surgery”, describes a wide array of techniques performed to sculpt and refine the appearance of your nose. In a rhinoplasty, the nose reshaping can be achieved by reducing or increasing size, changing the shape of the bridge or tip, removing a hump, narrowing the span of the nostrils, changing the angle between the nose and the upper lip, or modifying the dynamic action of the nose. As with any cosmetic surgery or plastic surgery procedure, balance and proportion is always the goal, and rhinoplasty is the paramount example of this; the nose must be internally balanced (the tip should not be too large or prominent relative to the bridge area, or the bump should not dominate a smaller, more refined tip), and the nose must also be in balance with the rest of your facial features. Even tiny changes in nasal contour with rhinoplasty can improve facial balance and proportion, and how you feel about yourself.
