What is rhinoplasty?
is a facial cosmetic procedure, usually performed to enhance the appearance or
the nose. During rhinoplasty, the nasal cartilages and bones are modified, or
tissue is added, to improve the
visual appeal of the nose. Rhinoplasty is also frequently performed
to repair nasal fractures. When rhinoplasty is used to repair nasal
fractures, the goal is to restore pre-injury appearance of the nose.
Septorhinoplasty is a related
procedure performed for patients who also have nasal obstruction.
Septorhinoplasty not only improves the appearance of the nose, but it removes
any internal obstructions and stabilizes structures that may be blocking nasal breathing.
