A rhinoplasty is an operation to change the outside and or inside of a nose. This makes it easier to breath and also more attractive,
A rhinoplasty procedure involves making cosmetic changes to the shape of the nose such as shaving down the dorsal hump, narrowing the bridge line, and refining a bulbous nasal tip. For more information and many examples, please see the link and the video below
Dear BeachieBeauty, Rhinoplasty is a term used for a surgical procedure to change the aesthetics of your nose. In some patients the procedure will be both functional and aesthetic. If a patient has breathing issues due to a deviated septum and no aesthetic concerns then that is commonly called a septoplasty. For examples of rhinoplasty see the video above and link below.

Rhinoplasty is the term used to describe external nasal surgery. Most commonly this surgery is performed to alter the appearance of the nose; however, there can be functional goals aimed at improving nasal breathing. This surgery is most commonly performed by facial plastic surgeons and plastic surgeons. Rhinoplasty is also known as "nose job." You can follow my link to learn more information. Good luck!
Dear BeachieBeauty,A rhinoplasty is usually a surgical procedure to your nose, that can change the way your nose looks and the way it works. Some patients need to have breathing and airflow improved at the same time as the cosmetic improvement, others ask just for the appearance of their nose to be improved.I hope this helps!
