Rhinoplasty is a popular cosmetic surgery procedure designed to improve the aesthetic value of the nose, though it may also be performed to improve the function of the nose. The nose is the central feature of the face and as such many people who are unhappy with their nose appearance feel self-conscious constantly about their nose. The Rhinoplasty procedure, also called a nose surgery, or nose job, is performed using either an open or closed surgical technique and can improve a number of aesthetic complaints such as: an upturned nose tip, a downturned nose tip, a nose tip that is too wide or too narrow, bumps or indentations in the profile of the nose, a nose that is too large, nostrils that are uneven or misshapen, etc.
The Rhinoplasty procedure may also be performed to improve functional issues with the nose such a deviated septum when there is an obstruction hindering the airflow through the nose.
