Is a type of nose reshaping surgery that can change the size, shape, and structure of the nose. The medical name for a nose job, rhinoplasty, is derived from the Greek: rhinos means “nose” and plassein means “to shape.”
This type of nose cosmetic surgery is sometimes combined (and often confused) with septoplasty—the surgical correction of a deviated septum, a condition where the dividing wall between your nasal passages is crooked. A septoplasty is intended to improve breathing, while a rhinoplasty is usually performed for aesthetic reasons.
The procedures can be done simultaneously as a septorhinoplasty, with one operation and recovery period.
In some circumstances, cosmetic rhinoplasty surgery also involves alarplasty, which narrows the nostrils (the ala) and reduces nostril flare.
If you’re considering a nose job, you’re far from alone. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons says that rhinoplasty is the third most popular cosmetic surgery, with more than 200,000 patients opting for the nose procedure every year.
