Rhinoplasty, sometimes referred to as a “nose job” or “nose reshaping” by patients, enhances the harmony of the face and the proportions of your nose. It can also correct poor breathing caused by structural defects in the nose.
What rhinoplasty can treat:
- The size of the nose in relation to the balance of the face
- The width of the nose at the bridge or the size and position of the nostrils
- Nose profile with visible humps or depressions on the bridge
- Enlarged or swollen, drooping, upturned or hooked nose
- Large, wide, or upturned nostrils
- nasal asymmetry
If you want a more symmetrical nose, keep in mind that everyone’s face is somewhat asymmetric. The results may not be exactly the same, although the goal is to create a face balance and correct proportion.
Rhinoplasty to correct a deviated nasal septum
Rhinoplasty that is performed to improve a blocked airway requires careful evaluation of the nasal structure as it relates to airflow and breathing.
A deviated nasal septum, one of the most common causes of poor breathing, is corrected by adjusting the structure of the nose to produce better alignment.
