Hi everyone! Today I wanted to take the time to go over what is a Rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty is commonly known as a nose job. It is the surgical procedure that we do to improve the outside appearance of the nose. Anything that we’re going to improve on the outside appearance of the nose is considered a rhinoplasty.
Rhinoplasty could be performed because we’re fixing a bump over the nose or could be because the tip is too wide, and we’re narrowing it. Additionally it could be too depressed, so we’re surgically raising it. Sometimes rhinoplasty could be performed because the nose is too small and you want to make it look a little bit bigger. All of these different options of a non job fall under the term of rhinoplasty.
There’s no one particular thing that rhinoplasty does. If anything it really is anything and everything you do to surgically improve or enhance the appearance of the nose. Additionally, it’s not just rhinoplasty that it improves the appearance of the nose.
We can sometimes combine a rhinoplasty procedure with other procedures in the nose such as septoplasty where we fix the septum, and turbinate reduction where we shrink the structures called turbinate on the inside, to get a better functioning nose.
By combining all of these procedures called a septorhinoplasty, we can improve your breathing, but also give you a more refined and beautiful nose. People who benefit from a rhinoplasty are generally those who aren’t happy with the outward appearance of their nose.
Of course, there are some limitations or certain things you can’t do. But those are all individualized. So if you wanted to know if you can benefit from rhinoplasty or not, come on in and see us and we’ll be more than happy to talk to you. Hope to see you soon.
