Nose surgery is sometimes referred to as a rhinoplasty, nose job, or nose reshaping and is performed to improve the appearance and proportion of your nose. This procedure can enhance your facial harmony, self confidence and may correct impaired breathing or correct the appearance due to an injury or prior surgery. Some reasons to have nose surgery are: to change nose size for better facial harmony, change nose profile to correct visible humps or depressions on the bridge, your nasal tip is large, bulbous, droops or plunges, to change a nose that is off-center or crooked, your nose is asymmetrical due genetics or a previous injury, your nostrils are large, wide or upturned, repair breathing difficulty due to nasal abnormalities.
You should have a clear idea of how you would like your nose to look and be able to point out exactly what you would like to see improved. Cosmetic nose surgery is a very individualized procedure. Patients should have a physical and emotional maturity. If you are a teen, is it important that the nose is fully developed and that your desire to change your appearance is for you and not your friends or parents. In some instances surgery of the chin may be recommended to make it either more or less prominent to improve your facial appearance.
