Often referred to as a ‘nose job’, a rhinoplasty is a procedure that seeks to fix any structural, shape, size and functional shortcomings of the nose. As an integral feature of the face, the nose plays a huge part in determining what someone looks like. Because of this, reshaping the nose is often considered one of the most challenging facial aesthetic procedures. Unlike other aesthetic or reconstructive procedures, in rhinoplasty the shape and appearance of the nose continues to evolve long after the original surgery is complete. This is mainly because it involves manipulation of nasal cartilages, which are relatively elastic, and also because of the surrounding forces transmitted from the skin envelope and facial muscles.
