A rhinoplasty is one of the most common types of cosmetic nose surgeries performed by ENT doctors today. Rhinoplasty, also referred to as a nose job, is a procedure that will change the overall appearance of the nose for the better. Even a slight alteration to your nose can have a dramatic affect on your facial appearance, which is why this is such a popular procedure. However, for some people getting a nose job isn’t about improving or changing the looks you were born with. A rhinoplasty can also serve as a way to correct an injury to the nose or other medical condition.
The relationship between the nose and other facial features is extremely delicate and essential, which is why a rhinoplasty is such an important procedure. A rhinoplasty can be performed for medical reasons, such as to improve breathing or correct a deformity due to trauma or developmental disturbance.
Why It's Done
As mentioned, a rhinoplasty may be performed in order to improve breathing or correct a deformity caused by injury or developmental problems. Your ENT doctor may suggest a rhinoplasty to correct complications stemming from a broken nose, recurring sinus infections, deviated septum, or major snoring problems.

They will also be able to add to or take away from the structure of your nose during this procedure. Your ENT doctor may use cartilage from deeper inside your nose or your ear, or he may use cartilage from the rib, implants, or bones from other parts of the body.You will receive post-care instructions from your ENT doctor that will explain the side effects you may experience as well as give you more detailed information on how to properly care for yourself in the days after the surgery.
