Rhinoplasty Surgery video

Nose correction, also known as rhinoplasty or nose surgery, is a cosmetic or functional surgical procedure to improve the appearance or function of the nose. It can be performed to alter the size, shape, or structure of the nose, improve breathing problems, or correct birth defects. The procedure is performed by a plastic surgeon and can be performed under general or local anesthesia.

Common reasons for undergoing nose correction include:

  1. Changing the size or shape of the nose
  2. Narrowing the nostrils
  3. Correcting a hump or depression on the bridge of the nose
  4. Correcting a deviated septum
  5. Fixing a droopy or upturned nose
  6. Reshaping the tip of the nose

It’s important to discuss your goals and expectations with a qualified plastic surgeon to determine if nose correction is right for you.

  1. Consult with a qualified plastic surgeon to discuss your goals and expectations for the procedure.
  2. Follow all pre-operative instructions provided by the surgeon, such as quitting smoking, avoiding certain medications and adjusting diet.
  3. Arrange for transportation and post-operative care.
  4. Get lab tests and medical clearance.
  5. Take a week off work to recover.
