What is Rhinoplasty Surgery?

Rhinoplasty, also known as nose reshaping surgery, is performed to improve the look and function of a patient’s nose. Depending on the patient’s need, the surgeon can reshape and resize a person’s nose so it is more proportional with the rest of the face. Just by changing the nose slightly, patients notice an overall improvement to their appearance.

There are three main types of rhinoplasty surgery, including:

  • Open Rhinoplasty – This procedure is usually reserved for more extensive reshaping. The surgeon will make a small incision under the nasal tip between the nostrils which provides more complete access to the nasal structures where the surgeon can sculpt the nose into the desired shape. 
  • Closed Rhinoplasty – This procedure is typically reserved for minor adjustments. The surgeon will make incisions inside the nostril which has the added benefit of leaving no visible scarring.
  • Tiplasty – This procedure, also known as tip rhinoplasty, involves reshaping the nasal tip only. This means the procedure would not affect the other nasal structures.
Your plastic surgeon can help you determine which option best suits your unique needs. No matter which you choose, you will enjoy a more natural and proportioned nose.

Both men and women of all ages can greatly benefit from rhinoplasty surgery. In fact, rhinoplasty was the second most popular type of plastic surgery in 2013. According to the 2013 Plastic Surgery Statistics Report, 221,000 rhinoplasty surgeries were performed in 2013.
