As the central feature of the face, the nose can have a dramatic effect on a person’s overall facial appearance. A misshapen or otherwise unattractive nose can draw negative attention and take away from the other more appealing facial characteristics. On the other hand, a more attractive nose will blend with the face and balance the other features for improved facial harmony.
Nose surgery or a “nose job,” technically known as rhinoplasty, can improve several aspects of the nose to achieve facial harmony as well as proper breathing function.
Cosmetic changes can be made to the size, shape, symmetry, and angle or projection of the nose.
Rhinoplasty can correct many cosmetic flaws, including:
- A nose that is overall too large
- A bump or indentation on the bridge of the nose
- Nostrils that are too wide or flared
- A drooping or bulbous nasal tip
- A nose that is off center or crooked
In addition to improving the appearance of the nose for facial harmony, nose surgery can also correct breathing problems associated with the nose. A deviated septum and other structural defects in the nasal passage can impair breathing and make simple tasks, such as eating or sleeping, difficult. Rhinoplasty can correct an obstructed airway to improve airflow and breathing through the nose.
