What is a Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty or nose job is a surgical procedure done to improve the appearance of the nose. It is one of the most common facial plastic surgery procedures that people seek. Patient can seek a rhinoplasty for numerous reasons including a large nose, a large hump, a droopy tip, reshaping the size of the nostrils and many more! It is one of the most complicated surgeries plastic surgeons perform due to the 3 dimensional shape of the nose and the fact that most of the surgery is done in millimeters. Patients who also have difficulty breathing will require a septo-rhinoplasty where work is done to the nasal septum, internal valve or inferior turbinates to enhance nasal airflow. Ultimately this is the most important function of the nose. Dr Rayess has a subtle approach to rhinoplasty preserving your own native structure whenever possible and ensuring that nasal airflow is never compromised.
