Purpose of Rhinoplasty: Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to enhance the shape and size of the nose, as well as correct any deformities. It is one of the most sought-after cosmetic treatments to improve facial appearance, as the nose is a central and prominent feature.

Candidates for Rhinoplasty: Individuals who are dissatisfied with the appearance of their nose or wish to enhance its features are potential candidates for rhinoplasty. Common indications for the procedure include a nasal hump, a depressed nose, a deviated nose, a broad nasal bridge, and a broad nasal base, among others.

Types of Rhinoplasty: There are two main types of rhinoplasty: open rhinoplasty and closed rhinoplasty. In open rhinoplasty, a small incision is made on the columella (the tissue between the nostrils), providing full access to the nose. In closed rhinoplasty, small incisions are made inside the nose. Both methods result in well-healed incisions without noticeable signs of surgery.

Achievable Changes: Rhinoplasty can be used to address a variety of issues, including augmenting the nose, reducing a nasal hump, correcting deviations, and more.
