The Rhinoplasty Procedure

The plastic surgeon may make incisions on the inside or outside of the nose in inconspicuous areas. The internal structure is then changed by altering the cartilage and the bone. These maneuvers help to reshape the nose into a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.  The septum and nasal structures obstructing breathing are corrected to improve breathing as well as to straighten nasal deviations. There is also the option of revision rhinoplasty which can be performed to correct unsatisfactory results from previous rhinoplasty surgery.
