Nasal surgery or rhinoplasty is surgery performed on the nose to improve the appearance and proportion of your nose, enhancing facial harmony and self confidence. Both men and women request nasal surgery to change the appearance of their nose. While the shape of your nose is for the most part related to heredity, the appearance may have been altered by an accident or injury to the nose.
Surgery of the nose can accomplish many things including changing the size of the nose in relation to the rest of your face, it can decrease the width of the nose at the bridge, it can improve the profile of the nose if visible humps or depressions are present, the nasal tip can be improved when it is drooping, bulbous or too upturned, nostrils that are large, wide or asymmetric can also be improved and finally rhinoplasty can also be performed to correct impaired breathing caused by structural abnormalities in the nose.
The nose and eyes are usually the most prominent features of your face. As a result, improvements in the size, shape or width of the nose can significantly impact your appearance. The goals of nasal surgery are highly individualized and will depend on your ethnic background, skin type, age and other considerations. The procedure will be planned to sculpt a balanced, natural appearing shape that is in harmony with your face. Often people who are considering nasal surgery also consider chin procedures to balance and enhance their facial features.
