Because the nose tends to be the most defining characteristic of the face, the desire to alter its appearance is certainly understandable. Even the slightest of alterations can greatly improve upon one’s look. Depending upon the set goals and the amount of work to be performed, rhinoplasty surgery can result in anywhere from a subtle to a very dramatic change in a person’s appearance. Often times, this physical change can result in an emotional change as well, removing what was once a source of discontent while adding confidence and bolstering a person’s self-esteem.
Rhinoplasty surgery can alter the look of the nose by reducing or increasing the size, narrowing the span of the nostrils, changing the shape of the tip or bridge of the nose, or changing the angle between the nose and upper lip. Rhinoplasty can also correct a birth defect or injury, or help to relieve breathing problems.
