It is surgery that changes the shape of the nose. The purpose of rhinoplasty may be to change the appearance of the nose, improve breathing, or both.

Reasons For Rhinoplasty:

  • If they’re unhappy with the appearance of their nose. Rhinoplasty can change the size, shape or proportions of your nose.
  • It may be done to repair deformities from an injury, correct a birth defect or improve some breathing difficulties.

Possible Changes That Your Surgeon Can Make To Your Nose Through Rhinoplasty Include:

  • Change in size
  • Change in angle
  • Straightening of the bridge
  • Reshaping of the tip
  • Narrowing of the nostrils


Rhinoplasty requires local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia, depending on how complex your surgery is and what your surgeon prefers.


  • Rhinoplasty is a procedure that aims to improve the appearance of the nose. Typically, the surgery is done under anesthesia to ensure that the patient remains unconscious and comfortable throughout.
  • During rhinoplasty the surgeon carefully makes incisions either, within the nostrils or sometimes at the base of the nose depending on what needs to be achieved. These incisions allow access to the underlying bone and cartilage structures of the nose.
  • The surgeon then. Enhances the framework by manipulating these structures. Techniques like cartilage grafting, septoplasty (straightening of the nasal septum) and tip refinement may be used to achieve desired results.
  • After making all modifications the surgeon closes the incisions with precision. To support and protect the shaped nose during healing, external nasal splints or internal packing might be used. It’s important for patients to follow care instructions and attend follow up appointments for monitoring and ensuring healing and results.
  • It’s worth noting that techniques in rhinoplasty can vary based on each patient’s anatomy and desired outcomes. Consulting with a plastic surgeon is crucial, for discussing treatment plans and expectations.
