Rhinoplasty is surgery of the nose with the goal of reshaping or altering its appearance. This surgery is performed by a plastic surgeon and is one of the most common cosmetic procedures. The practice of rhinoplasty or reshaping of the nose has been around for thousands of years, first in ancient India and then during the Roman Empire. There are many reasons why people want nose reshaping or have it altered, some trying to reform the nose after an accident or some just not happy with the way their nose looks now.
Rhinoplasty can increase or decrease the size of your nose, change the angles of your nose or change the size of your nostrils. Finding a qualified plastic surgeon to discuss the ins and outs of a nose job before the procedure is important. The key is to keep in mind that getting rhinoplasty is supposed to be an improvement in your appearance and not to make your face perfect.
