What is a rhinoplasty?
A rhinoplasty, or nose reshaping surgery, can be performed for both cosmetic and functional purposes. This surgical procedure involves altering the size, shape or proportions of the nose to enhance facial balance and symmetry. Philosophers in Ancient Greece would often talk of symmetry in the face, making the individual the object of ultimate beauty by all. Symmetry and the mathematical dimensions that make it important, are emulated in plastic surgery.
Rhinoplasty may be performed alone, but is often combined with chin augmentation to bring additional proportion to the entire facial profile. In addition to having cosmetic benefits, there are health benefits that can help you sleep better at night. In some cases, the internal structure of the nose may also be corrected to help the patient breathe easily and reduce any nasal issues that arise from sleep apnea.
