Cosmetic and Corrective Nose Surgery
Rhinoplasty is a procedure to improve the aesthetic and/or function of the nose. Many people, both men and women, do not like the appearance of their noses for various different reasons. Some people find that their noses appear too large or too small for their faces. Some people have bumps or indentations that are very apparent especially in profile and still others take issue with their nostrils for being too large or misshapen. All these examples are of aesthetic or cosmetic issues that people have with their noses.
On the other side of the issue is nose function. These problems would be described as structural abnormalities which make it very difficult to breath easily through the nose. One of the most common examples of this is the deviated septum. Trauma to the nose is often another cause of functional and aesthetic problems which can be fixed through nose surgery.
