Also known as Rhinoplasty or a Nose Job
Rhinoplasty is the medical term for any surgery that alters the appearance of your nose.
There are several procedures that alter the appearance of the nose which tackle different concerns to achieve your individual aims. Your surgeon will discuss the right rhinoplasty method for you and the results you can realistically expect.
Rhinotip – the tip of the nose and nostrils are altered
Septorhinoplasty – the external appearance of the nose is altered as well as alteration of the internal septum.
Reduction rhinoplasty – the nose is made smaller. This will involve reshaping the bridge and tip of the nose as well as the nostrils. Some bone and cartilage may also be removed.
A patient must be completely clear on exactly what it is that concerns them about their nose (the initial consultation can be very helpful in defining this). The patient must inform the surgeon clearly of these concerns. Good Rhinoplasty surgeons are as much artists as they are expert technical surgeons.
