Rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job, is a type of plastic surgery used to change the shape and/or size of the nose. It is designed to improve the appearance of the nose and enhance facial balance. Rhinoplasty can be performed for both medical and aesthetic reasons. Common medical reasons include correcting a deviated septum, improving breathing, and repairing damage caused by injury. Common aesthetic reasons include reducing the size of the nose, changing the shape of the tip or bridge, and narrowing the nostrils. During rhinoplasty, the surgeon typically makes incisions inside the nose or across the columella (the bridge of tissue between the nostrils). The surgeon then shapes or removes cartilage and tissue to alter the shape and size of the nose. The incisions are then closed using sutures or surgical tape. In some cases, the surgeon also uses implants to augment the nose. Recovery times vary depending on the type of rhinoplasty procedure, but can take up to two weeks. Rhinoplasty can have dramatic results and significantly improve the appearance of the nose.
