Undesirable characteristics of the nose may be hereditary or the result of an injury or prior surgery. If you are bothered by the shape or size of your nose, then cosmetic surgery of the nose, or Rhinoplasty, may be right for you.
Subtle improvement can be attained by:
- Reshaping the nasal bridge
- Reducing the shape or width of the nose
- Reshaping the nasal tip
- Adjusting the angle between the nose and upper lip
Surgery to the nose normally requires an overnight stay at the hospital. Initial healing may include some swelling, bruising and headaches, which can be carefully controlled with medication. A splint may be placed on the nose and removed during the first week after your surgery, so some downtime should be expected.
After – Repairment of bifurcation (splitting) of tip of nose. Narrowed tip, straightened dorsum (bridge), smoothing of hump of nose.
