Nose Aesthetics (Rhinoplasty)
A nose Aesthetics (Rhinoplasty) is surgery on the nose to change its shape or improve its function.
It can be done for medical reasons such as to correct breathing problems related to the nose or correct disfigurement resulting from trauma or birth defects.
It can also be done for cosmetic reasons, which will change the nose's shape and appearance.
What are the different types of nose surgery?
Aesthetic nose surgery can be performed with two different techniques: open rhinoplasty and closed rhinoplasty.
In the open rhinoplasty technique, a small incision in the skin between the nostrils is performed and the nasal skin is removed. The closed rhinoplasty technique is performed directly through the nostrils. The two techniques are very different from each other and should be done by experienced doctors.
