Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery)
One of the most common plastic surgery procedures, rhinoplasty is performed to reshape, reduce or augment a person’s nose. This procedure may be used to remove a hump, narrow nostril width, change the angle between the nose and the mouth, or to correct injury, birth defects, or other problems that affect breathing. The results may be subtle or dramatic depending on what goals are to be accomplished. Rhinoplasty is usually an outpatient procedure performed under either local or general anesthesia.
