What Is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is a term used to describe a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to re-shape the patient’s nose. It is often referred to as a, “nose job”. The idea of a rhinoplasty procedure is to enhance facial harmony, improve the proportions of the nose, and correct structural defects in the nose that may impair breathing. The term itself comes from the German term, “rhinoplastik”, which translates to, “changing the shape of the nose”. Within a rhinoplasty procedure, the incisions are made inside the nose, where they are not visible, or in more severe cases, they are made in the area of skin that separates the nostrils. The bone and cartilage is reduced and reshaped to create the new, more desirable structure.
