Rhinoplasty surgery, also known as nose plastic surgery, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that aims to reshape or resize the nose to improve its appearance and function. The surgery can address a range of aesthetic concerns, such as a prominent hump, a crooked nose, or an uneven nasal tip. Rhinoplasty can also correct functional issues, such as breathing difficulties caused by a deviated septum or other nasal deformities.
During the surgery, the surgeon will make incisions either inside the nostrils or across the columella, the thin strip of tissue between the nostrils. They will then reshape the bone and cartilage in the nose to achieve the desired result. The surgeon may use a variety of techniques, including removing bone or cartilage, grafting tissue, or reshaping the existing tissue to achieve the desired outcome.
