Rhinoplasty is a procedure that improves the appearance and proportions of the nose, enhancing facial harmony and self-confidence. Surgery of the nose may also correct impaired breathing caused by structural defects in the nose. Rhinoplasty can change nose size in relation to facial balance, width at the bridge, or in the size and position of the nostrils, profile, nasal tip, or nasal asymmetry. To ensure a successful outcome, both the surgeon and the patient should be very clear about what can and will be accomplished during the procedure.
The specific risks and the suitability of this procedure for a given individual can be determined only at the time of consultation with your surgeon. Minor complications that do not affect the outcome occur occasionally. Major complications are rare.
