Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery)
Rhinoplasty, or cosmetic nasal surgery, is one of the most common cosmetic procedures performed today. The operation is usually carried out because a patient desires to improve his or her appearance. It is also frequently requested for repair of injuries or correction of the increasing disfigurement of the nose that occurs, as the patient grows older. In addition to the purely aesthetic reasons for seeking rhinoplasty, patients may also be influenced in their desire for surgery because of related functional problems such as breathing obstruction, which can also be corrected by the operation.
