Rhinoplasty is commonly known as the nose job. Done as a cosmetic as well as a corrective procedure, it requires real finesse and expertise to do a good job. As the surgery involves cartilages and soft tissues, great care has to be taken to deliver to the satisfaction of the patient.
Congenital deformities, mutilation, accident scars can all be corrected to a great extent by the advanced procedures in rhinoplasty. The open procedure helps reconstruct the nose in a more aesthetic manner. This is preferred as the secondary rhinoplasty may be avoided with the procedure.
Rhinoplasty procedures include:
Narrowing of the nasal bridge
Narrowing of the width of the nostril
Straightening the nose
Refining the nasal tip
Changing the angle between the nose and the mouth
Correction of a nasal septum deviation to improve nasal breathing
