Rhinoplasty is a surgery to change the shape of the nose. Both breathing and the nose’s shape are related. A rhinoplasty can be used not only to change the way the nose looks but also to improve breathing. Septoplasty is a surgery to improve breathing.

During a typical rhinoplasty procedure, a surgeon makes incisions to gain access to the underlying cartilage and bone of the patient’s nose. They may then restructure or remove tissue to achieve the desired result. Following the procedure, the incisions are closed, and the nose may be packed or splinted to support the healing process.

Rhinoplasty is typically performed by plastic surgeons or facial plastic surgeons who are well-trained or experts in carrying out the procedure. The surgery may entail some risks or have potential complications, such as bleeding, infection, scarring, or breathing difficulties. Patients should discuss their concerns and expectations with a qualified surgeon before finally deciding to go under the knife.

Summary: A nose job, or rhinoplasty, can be best defined as a surgical procedure that can improve the shape and size of a person’s nose for cosmetic or functional reasons. Qualified surgeons who perform rhinoplasty are usually trained in plastic surgery (in general) or are specialists in facial plastic surgery. Patients considering rhinoplasty should take time to carefully evaluate the potential risks and benefits before deciding whether to proceed with the surgical procedure.

Types of nose job:

Rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a ‘nose job,’ is predominantly a surgical procedure that can be carried out for either cosmetic or functional reasons. It encompasses various types of procedures, including open and closed rhinoplasty, cosmetic rhinoplasty, nonsurgical rhinoplasty (also known as filler rhinoplasty), functional rhinoplasty, and secondary rhinoplasty, all of which are detailed below:-

  • Open rhinoplasty: Rhinoplasty that involves creating incisions to completely separate the skin of the nose from the underlying bone and cartilage is referred to as an ‘open rhinoplasty.’ This allows the surgeon to visualize the underlying anatomy of the nose, making it easier to achieve the desired result. In most cases, this kind of surgical procedure is carried out for major nose reshaping.
  • Closed rhinoplasty: It is a minor nose-reshaping procedure that involves making incisions within the nose to reshape the bone and cartilage. This procedure is less invasive than open rhinoplasty and typically involves a shorter recovery period.
  • Cosmetic rhinoplasty: This is a procedure that improves the appearance of the nose and face. This type of rhinoplasty can be used to alter or make desired changes to the size, shape, and overall appearance of an individual’s nose.
  • Non Surgical rhinoplasty: A nonsurgical rhinoplasty, or ‘filler rhinoplasty,’ is a cosmetic procedure that employs dermal fillers to temporarily address dips and irregularities in the nose. This type of rhinoplasty can correct minor imperfections such as a small bump or droopy nasal tip.
  • Functional rhinoplasty: This is a reconstructive procedure that restores nasal form and function after disease, cancer treatments, traumatic injuries, or congenital defects. This type of rhinoplasty is designed to improve breathing and nasal function.
  • Secondary rhinoplasty: This kind of rhinoplasty is a revision procedure that corrects any problems that occur after the first rhinoplasty surgery. These problems can be minor, but they are often more complex for the surgeon to repair.
