Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure to repair or reshape the nose. It can change the size, width and profile of your nose. It can smooth out depressions or bumps on the bridge, and fix an imperfect nasal tip (one that is too large, droopy or curves upward). Large or wide nostrils may be reshaped, and a deviated septum can be corrected.
Surgery is performed with the patient fully asleep and can take multiple hours depending on the detailed goals of surgery. Incisions are hidden inside the nose for the most part to minimize outward wound healing. The structure of the nose is reshaped to allow for better breathing, straighter appearance, and an improved shape depending on the patient’s goals.
