Rhinoplasty is a procedure to surgically refine the size and/or shape of the nose to improve the appearance and /or function. A nose that is too large can be made smaller. A wide nose can be made more narrow. A crooked nose can be straightened. Bumps can be eliminated, and the tip can be reshaped. Surgery can make the nose appear more in balance with the rest of the face. Rhinoplasty can be performed for only cosmetic reasons or to improve breathing through the nose. It can increase airflow where obstruction in the nose causes breathing problems.
