Commonly referred to as ‘Nose job,’ Rhinoplasty, simply put, is a surgical procedure to reshape the nose. The reasons why Rhinoplasty may be necessary are varied, including but not limited to – making a nose tip better, reducing the flaring of the nose when smiling, augmentation of the nose bridge, narrowing an overly broad nose, straightening a deviated nose, amending a previous Rhinoplasty, etc.
As the popular saying goes, “Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder”, the definition of a handsome nose differs from person to person. What is beauty to one may be unattractive to others. So, if you don’t like the way your nose looks, are willing to undergo a surgical procedure to change it and are in good physical and mental health – Rhinoplasty is your answer.
The two general types of Rhinoplasty are ‘Closed’ Rhinoplasty (all incisions hidden inside the nose) and ‘Open’ Rhinoplasty (all incisions EXCEPT one small incision are inside the nose.)
There is a small incision across the Aligarh in ‘Open’ Rhinoplasty. This incision is only about 3 mm long and is hardly seen later. The decision on which technique will be used depends on individual technical evaluations such as the patient’s specific anatomy and his/her cosmetic request and the Surgeon’s experience with both the techniques.

Benefits of Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty procedures are often done to correct structural problems within the nose that make it hard to breathe through the nose. One common problem is a deviated septum. The septum is the wall between the nasal passages. If it’s crooked, it makes one of the nasal passages unduly small. In severe cases, a deviated septum can block the nasal passage altogether. A deviated septum can also cause frequent sinus infections and/or nosebleeds.

People experiencing breathing difficulties can gain significant relief by getting a functional nose job. This type of rhinoplasty is done to fix problems with the structures of the nose that limit airflow that affects normal breathing, or cause snoring. These problems are often due to birth defects, but may also be the result of trauma to the nose, which can lead to a deviated septum.
Functional rhinoplasty is done to clear airway obstruction, or to treat the internal nasal passages. Individuals suffering with nasal congestion that forces them to breathe mostly through their mouth, can benefit from surgery to remove airway obstruction.

As the most prominent part of the face, the nose is the facial bone that often gets broken. Fights, accidents, falls and sports injuries are common causes of broken noses. A reconstructive rhinoplasty can fix any deformities caused by an injury.

Rhinoplasty can help to treat chronic sinusitis or inflammation of the sinuses. When the sinuses get blocked and filled with fluid, they attract bacteria and get infected. If the patient has chronic sinusitis, or their sinusitis keeps coming back, the surgeon will check them for structural problems in the nose or sinuses.

If your nose is crooked or depressed or has a hump or bump that you’d like to get rid of, rhinoplasty can reshape and redefine your nose. It can also better define the bridge of the nose. A nose job can lead to subtle or dramatic improvements in the appearance of your nose.
If you feel conscious about your nose looks, rhinoplasty can reshape and refine it and boost your self-confidence.
During your initial consultation with your surgeon, be sure to take the time to learn about the procedure so that you are aware not only of the benefits but the possible risks and complications that can occur.

Snoring can be a surprisingly serious problem. It is the third most common cause of divorce, and nearly a quarter of couples sleep in separate bedrooms because one of them snores. Snoring can be caused by structural problems within the nose like a deviated septum. A nose job can fix such problems.

Rhinoplasty is one of the plastic surgery procedures that can improve facial symmetry. Facial symmetry refers to the balance of your facial features and is thought to impact attractiveness. People with more symmetrical features are often considered more attractive.
Since the nose is in the middle of the face, it can negatively affect your appearance if it is too large or small. Some people suffer insecurities because of these issues and opt to undergo rhinoplasty to address them.
Redefining the nose can improve facial features and transform your appearance. However, patients should have realistic expectations about nose surgery and not expect their faces to be perfectly symmetrical after the procedure.
