The nose is a complicated structure on the face that plays important roles in function and appearance. Its central location makes it a particularly major player in your face’s balance and symmetry. For those who are unhappy with the size, shape, or arrangement of their nose, a rhinoplasty procedure can help augment your nose to better mirror your preferences.
A rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that involves reconstructing or reshaping various structures of the nose, such as the bridge, tip, nostrils, nasal tip, or septum. Depending on the structure being reconfigured, the surgical incision(s) can be performed internally within the nostrils in a “closed” technique or outside the nose in an “open technique.”
