Nose surgery or Rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasty is a form of plastic surgery that modifies the shape and
size of the nose. While most of these procedures are performed for aesthetic reasons, rhinoplasty can also be used as a solution to structural defects that may cause breathing problems. The nose reshaping procedure is an outpatient plastic surgery treatment that typically lasts one to two hours.
During this time your plastic surgeon will sculpt the cartilage and bone of the nose to achieve a specific look. Rhinoplasty can be performed in two ways: open or closed. Open rhinoplasty requires an incision across the columella, and gives a surgeon easier access to the nasal tissue. During a closed procedure, all incisions are made within the nostrils. Your surgeon will decide the best treatment option for you based on your desired results.

The Rhinoplasty procedure
During rhinoplasty, the surgeon makes incisions to access the bones and cartilage that support the nose. The incisions are usually made inside the nose so that they are invisible after the surgery. Depending on the desired result, some bone and cartilage may be removed, or tissue may be added (either from another part of the body or using a synthetic filler). After the surgeon has rearranged and reshaped the bone and cartilage, the skin and tissue is re-draped over the structure of the nose. A splint is placed outside the nose to support the new shape of the nose as it heals. Nasal packing may be used inside the nose to provide additional support. Rhinoplasty may be done using general or local anesthesia.
