A well-shaped nose can compliment your other facial features.  A rhinoplasty procedure can help change the length, size and shape of your nose for aesthetically pleasing results. It can also help improve breathing function. So if you are not happy with the shape of your nose or experience breathing difficulties, consider nose reshaping surgery.  The procedure can address many aesthetic issues such as a high, low, wide or narrow dorsum, bulbous tip, a nose that is too large or one with a tip that is too low or too high. It can also offer many functional benefits.

Modern rhinoplasty is centered on the principle of reshaping the nasal support to achieve the desired aesthetic appearance. The benefits offered include

  • Improved facial symmetry: Nose reshaping surgery can effectively improve the overall symmetry of the face.
  • Improved shape: A nose job can reshape your nose by altering its bridge or tip.
  • Proportionate size: This procedure can help you improve nasal features and make them more proportional to your face.
  • Improved nasal breathing function: This challenging procedure balances a combination of form and function to provide a nose that looks good and also improves breathing function.


Approaches to this cosmetic nose surgery include open or closed surgery. In the open approach, the entire nasal tip is exposed by making an incision across the columella and lifting the skin off the nasal tip. The reshaping of the cartilage is done by reducing, reshaping, suturing, and supporting them. Sutures across the columella are removed in approximately five to six days.

In the closed approach, incisions are made inside the nose and the nasal structures are accessed through the nostrils. There is less need for surgical dissection and so, less visible scarring and risk of pos-operative edema compared to the open approach.

Established plastic surgery centers also perform septoplasty to repair a deviated septum and correct nasal obstruction. This procedure can improve breathing function as well as provide a pleasing cosmetic outcome.
