Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty (otherwise known as a “nose job”) is a procedure that aims to improve the appearance of the nose, achieving better facial harmony for both men and women.

The nose is the central feature of the face, many people are self-conscious of shape which they may regard as too big, too small or have some other feature which they dislike. The characteristics of the nose are inherited from parents and develop during adolescent years. It continues until the age of 16, when the nose stops growing. It is, therefore, unwise to operate before this age.

There are a variety of ways in which rhinoplasty can benefit an individual. For example, some people choose to undergo cosmetic nose surgery to reduce a prominent lump or to narrow a particularly wide nose. Similarly, nose surgery is used to correct the nose if it is bent to one side, has suffered trauma or injury or there is a breathing obstruction because the septum, the internal bone of the nose, is deviated.

When performing rhinoplasty surgery, it is possible to adjust several problems at the same time, including a bump on the bridge and bulbous nose tip or a bent nose meaning that all issues can be corrected all in one operation
