The Rhinoplasty procedure, also called a nose surgery or “nose job,” is a popular procedure among both men and women of various ages to improve their nose appearance and, sometimes, function as well. The nose surgery can improve a number of common aesthetic nose complaints such as hooked or upturned noses, nasal tips that are bulbous or drooping, nasal asymmetry, nostrils that are uneven or too wide, bumps or indentations visible in the profile of the nose, and overall nose size in relation to the other features of the face. Rhinoplasty can usually correct these issues and is performed using either an open or closed procedure technique–open rhinoplasty surgery is performed through an incision on the outside of the nose, while a closed rhinoplasty procedure is performed through an incision inside the nose.
In addition to aesthetic concerns, rhinoplasty can correct a deviated septum and other issues within the structure of the nose that may be obstructing airflow through the nose.
