Rhinoplasty, also called nose surgery, is a popular plastic surgery procedure performed to improve the nose or appearance of the nose. There are a number of aesthetic complaints people have about the nose they were born with from overall nose size, bumps or indentations in the bridge of the nose, the tip of the nose being upturned, downturned, too wide or narrow, etc. Rhinoplasty is performed through either an open or closed technique–meaning the incision is made either inside the nose or outside the nose.
In addition to aesthetic issues, rhinoplasty can improve functional issues inside the nose when there is an obstruction in the structure of the nose that impedes air flow.
