One of the most common facial surgeries patients come to us to perform is known as a rhinoplasty, or “nose job”. However, this operation can be done for more than purely cosmetic purposes. Rhinoplasties are also performed to help patients dealing with breathing issues.
During this procedure, our plastic surgeon will reshape your nose. It can be done to alter the nose bone, the cartilage, or your skin. The specific aspects of this surgery will vary on a patient to patient basis based on one’s facial features and desired results. If cartilage needs to be added to your nose, it can be taken from your inner ear, or other parts of your body. Cartilage and bone can also be removed to achieve the desired results.
