Rhinoplasty or a nose job is among the top cosmetic surgery procedures performed in the US. The cosmetic surgeon will sculpt the bone and cartilage of the nose during the procedure to achieve a desired look for the patient. Rhinoplasty is for men and women that are otherwise unhappy with the shape and size of their nose. The procedure is effective, safe, and a time-tested cosmetic solution.
When performed by a skilled and experienced cosmetic surgeon, a nose reshaping surgery can improve the balance of features to a significant extent. It can help patients discover renewed confidence in their appearance. The procedure can also be used for correcting structural defects, such as the ones causing breathing problems.

Aesthetic Benefits of Rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasty can be used for modifying the size, shape, and overall appearance of the nose. In certain cases, plastic surgeons may recommend inserting a chin implant at the same time for more harmonious results. Generally, patients ask their surgeons for the following while considering a rhinoplasty plastic surgery:
- Narrowing the bridge of the nose
- Narrowing or widening the nostrils
- Straightening crooked noses
- Reshaping the nose tip
- Altering the angle between the upper lips and nose
Incisions used for rhinoplasty plastic surgery is usually hidden inside the nose or placed outside in an inconspicuous manner. Surgeons try for minimal scarring to improve the overall appearance of the nose and to maintain a natural look.
Reduction rhinoplasty is a common type of nose reshaping surgery. It can address elongated nasal tips, bumps on the bridge, and excessively flared nostrils. The doctor will remove a small portion of the cartilage or bone to achieve desired results. This may be performed through alar base reduction. Small wedges of tissue will be removed from the area where the cheeks and nostrils meet during the process.
Augmentation rhinoplasty is another popular cosmetic surgery. The surgeon will perform tissue or bone grafting for building the nasal bridge or tip. Cartilage is used from other parts of the nose, such as the nasal septum. The doctor may also use cartilage from rib bone and other areas if the patient doesn’t have enough tissue in the nasal area.
Post traumatic rhinoplasty can be beneficial for patients that suffered an injury to the nose. The procedure addresses both functionality and appearance. The procedure can be used for correcting the nasal septum and straightening the nose. Post-traumatic patients often require re-fracturing and re-setting of the nose for achieving the desired results.
This type of surgery is generally required by patients that have lost a part or most of their nose to skin cancer, accident, or some other serious illness. The surgeon will rebuild the nose during the treatment using flap techniques, skin grafts, and other advanced methods.
