Rhinoplasty, known best as “nose job” or “nose reshaping”, is one of the most popular procedures in cosmetic surgery requested by patients to enhance facial harmony and proportions of the nose. It can also correct impaired breathing caused by structural defects in the nose.

When done correctly it can improve:

The size of the nose in relation to facial balance

Correct the width at the bridge or in the size and position of the nostrils

Enhance the profile if there are any visible humps or depressions on the bridge

Modify the nasal tip that is enlarged or bulbous, drooping, upturned or hooked

Alter nostrils that are large, wide or upturned

Correct any nasal asymmetry

Rhinoplasty to correct a deviated septum is when nose surgery is done to improve an obstructed airway and requires careful evaluation of the nasal structure as it relates to airflow and breathing. Correction of a deviated septum, one of the most common causes of breathing impairment, is achieved by adjusting the nasal structure to produce better alignment.

Secondary Rhinoplasty

Secondary or ‘Revision’ Rhinoplasty refers to nose surgery required beyond a secondary operation, such as a third or fourth operation to address cosmetic or functional deformities not properly treated or made worse from the primary operation.

Common Problems that Require Secondary Rhinoplasty:

Nasal airway obstruction

Collapse of cartilage or nasal bones

Artificial cosmetic appearance to nose (“Overdone nose job”)

Internal and external nasal valve collapse

Worsened asymmetry

Over reduction or inadequate reduction of dorsal height (bridge height/hump)

Incomplete shaping (not enough of a cosmetic change)

Excessive or inadequate tip projection

Excessively narrowed nasal tip (“pinched tip”)

Excessive internal and/or external scarring (thickened scar tissue)
