Rhinoplasty, or surgery to reshape the nose, is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures. Rhinoplasty can reduce or increase the size of your nose, change the shape of the tip of the nose or the bridge, improve nasal aperture or change the angle between the nose and upper lip holes. You can also correct a birth defect or injury, or help improve breathing problems.

It is also important to consider that the nose is the central element in the face. For this reason, on the one hand, it changes the appearance of the entire face but, on the other, must be in harmony with the other elements of the face. For this reason you should study not only the nose but their relationship to the maxilla and mandible including the chin.

Rhinoplasty can thin the tip, modify or increase the back, change the angle of the nose in relation to the forehead or upper lip and rectify the nostrils. With respect to the partition, the sheet that separates the two nostrils, the irregularities that disturb the air column can be improved, and treat turbinates.

Before deciding to undergo this surgery, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them with the plastic surgeon, because there are structural skin features that are specific to each individual and that no surgery will change. He will advise you on the best option, alternatives, limitations, risks and care you should take.
