Rhinoplasty is a facial cosmetic procedure, usually performed to enhance the appearance of the nose.
During rhinoplasty, the nasal cartilages and bones are modified, or tissue is added, to improve the visual appeal and appearance of the nose.
Rhinoplasty is also frequently performed to repair nasal fractures. When rhinoplasty is used to repair nasal fractures, the goal is to restore pre-injury appearance of the nose.
Septorhinoplasty is a related procedure performed for patients who also have nasal obstruction. Septorhinoplasty not only improves the appearance of the nose, but it removes any internal obstructions that may be blocking nasal breathing.
