Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure which changes the shape and/or size of the nose. Carried out by trained and qualified surgeons in the field of cosmetic surgery, a rhinoplasty may be chosen for a variety of reasons, from general dissatisfaction with the shape or size of the nose, to congenital defects, deviated septum, trauma or structure causing breathing difficulties.

All rhinoplasties are conducted under general anesthetic, so that the patient is asleep for the duration. How the actual surgical procedure is carried out depends on what type of rhinoplasty you choose to have. Open rhinoplasty involves making incisions on the outside as well as the inside of your nose. As a result the healing time will be longer as the stitches disappear. Closed rhinoplasty, on the other hand, involves alterations made from the inside only, via the nostrils. Some closed rhinoplasty procedures do require incisions made to the under-side of the septum, but scarring should be minimal.


You are a good candidate for aesthetic rhinoplasty if you are done growing physically and are genuinely unhappy with the shape or size of your nose. It's important to let your nose grow to its full size and shape before having rhinoplasty surgery. If you don't then your nose may continue to grow after the procedure, and the result may no longer be what you desire.

People who were born with a congenital nose defect, have a nose that has grown abnormally or have suffered trauma to the nose will also be candidates. A rhinoplasty should be avoided if the individual is expecting it to change any other aspects of their life. All a rhinoplasty will do is change the shape or size of your nose and your own attitude towards it, but it cannot be guaranteed to change how people treat you, or how happy you are with life overall. In short, rhinoplasty can provide a considerable physical change / improvement to your nose, but it cannot not provide perfection.
