Surgery of the nose (rhinoplasty) is a surgical procedure that can produce changes in the appearance, structure, and function of the nose. Rhinoplasty can reduce or increase the size of the nose, change the shape of the tip, narrow the width of the nostrils, or change the angle between the nose and the upper lip. This operation can help correct birth defects, nasal injuries, and help relieve some breathing problems. Rhinoplasty surgery is customized for each patient, depending on his or her needs, with the goal of creating a nose that fits your face and achieves a harmonious balance with your other facial features.
