Rhinoplasty, also known as a “nose job,” is a surgical procedure used to improve the appearance and/or function of the nose. This procedure can address a range of concerns, including correcting a crooked nose, reducing the size or shape of the nose and nostrils, or improving breathing difficulties caused by structural abnormalities.

During rhinoplasty, incisions are made in the nose and underlying tissue is reshaped or removed to achieve the desired outcome. The procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia and can take several hours to complete, depending on the extent of the surgery.

After the procedure, patients can expect some swelling and mile discomfort, which can be managed with medication and rest. It’s important to follow the post-operative instructions provided by the surgeon to ensure optimal healing and minimize the risk of complications.

Rhinoplasty can provide significant improvements in both the appearance and function of the nose.
