Rhinoplasty is one of the most common and one of the most complex procedures performed in facial plastic surgery. It can be purely to change the appearance of your nose (cosmetic), or to improve your breathing (functional), or a combination of both. The nose is a very visible facial feature, which should be aesthetically pleasing, and functional, allowing you to breathe easily. Most patients will be able to have their breathing improved and their appearance improved during the same procedure.
In select cases, the reshaping can be done nonsurgically with filler injections. For most patients, surgical intervention must be done to allow for maximal results. Rhinoplasty can be done for tip refinement, to remove a bony hump, narrow the nose, or to improve your breathing.
