Rhinoplasty, often referred to as a ‘nose job’, is a very common surgery that can be performed in different ways and for different reasons.
Some patients are born with a nose they dislike, often similar to a parent’s, and others may have had their noses altered by injury.
A rhinoplasty procedure can reduce or increase the size of the nose, change the shape of the nose tip, narrow the width of the nostrils or change the angle between the nose and the upper lip. Rhinoplasty surgery can also help correct birth defects, nasal injuries and help relieve breathing problems.
It must be appreciated that although a surgeon will normally be confident that he can leave you with the result you want at the end of the rhinoplasty they are not in control of the healing processes, which will influence the final result. Even in the best of hands a small percentage of patients may wish to have further adjustment.
