Rhinoplasty, AKA a nose job, changes or alters the shape, appearance and size of the nose. Rhinoplasty makes changes to the bone, skin or cartilage to improve the breathing ability of the patient as well as balance out the facial features. Many patients want to narrow the bridge of their nose, straighten a crooked nose or alter the angle between the upper lip and the nose. The surgery can be classified as open or closed rhinoplasty. Open rhinoplasty incisions are on the outside of the nose while closed rhinoplasty places the incisions inside the nose. Variations of rhinoplasty include reduction, augmentation, reconstructive and ethnic rhinoplasty.
