Rhinoplasty (Commonly named as Nose Job) is a kind of plastic surgery. Plastic surgery of nose was first mentioned as a method to change or cure nasal problems in ancient Egypt and since then it became one of the oldest treatment methods available over time to reconstruct the shape of the nose, to treat broken nose, etc.
Types of Rhinoplasty
Prevalently, there are two types of Rhinoplasty, one is reconstructive surgery and the other one is cosmetic surgery. On the first type, generally, reconstruction of the nose is done for better looking especially to change the way it looks. On the former type(cosmetic surgery), it is done to improve the nasal efficiency to widen or narrow down the opening and is commonly done in case of various types of trauma such as accidents or sudden punch on to the nose. In terms of surgery, there are two types of surgery, open Rhinoplasty and closed Rhinoplasty.
When will you go for Rhinoplasty?
OK, terms and conditions vary for patients to patients. But I am going to give you an overall idea about when will you need Rhinoplasty?
- Are you feeling good with the shape of your nose? If the answer is ‘No’, you can go for Rhinoplasty. The surgical procedure will change the shape of your nose according to your desired shape. For example, if you have a big nose width, the procedure can help you to reduce. Moreover, if your nose is not in a good position, like asymmetrical or its position is not good according to the shape of the face or mouth opening, Rhinoplasty can help you to relocate a bit so that it looks good on your face.
