Rhinoplasty FAQs

In some cases, a rhinoplasty can be necessary to address medical conditions such as breathing problems. When rhinoplasty for cosmetic reasons is being considered, it is important to set up a meeting with a specialist in order to discuss options for the procedure.

Typically, a patient will outline their goals to the doctor, including how they would like to change their nose. A specialist can then assess whether these goals are realistic, and explain how the changes could enhance an individual’s appearance. The overall health of the individual will also be considered, along with the risks involved.

Rhinoplasty can involve several procedures. Nose reduction is typically achieved by removing bone and cartilage. Nose augmentation takes cartilage from the ears and bone from other parts of the body in order to build the nose using a graft. Often both procedures are combined to produce harmony in the nose.

An open rhinoplasty involves one cut across the skin, while a closed rhinoplasty, when possible, involves small cuts inside the nostrils.
