What is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty is a surgery that changes the shape of the nose. The reason that you may get a rhinoplasty can vary, and it can be related to physical appearance or the ability to breathe. It may even be a situation where both concerns are an issue.
Why get a Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty can modify the parts of the nose that are bone, cartilage, skin, or all three. This is because the upper part of the nose is made out of bone while the lower portion is cartilage. By talking to your doctor, you can determine what is in the realm of possibility for you and what will work best. When you are planning your surgery, your doctor will consider additional features to determine what changes would serve you best. In certain cases, rhinoplasty can even be covered by insurance.
What to expect?
Rhinoplasty is not going to be the same for every person. Unlike many other procedures, where there are a series of steps to be followed each time, each rhinoplasty is unique. It is always going to be customized to the anatomy and goals of the person who is undergoing the procedure.
