Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic procedure aimed at modifying the appearance of the nose. Through various individualized steps during a rhinoplasty, specific aesthetic concerns can be addressed. Some patients desire removal of a hump, while others look for narrowing of the bridge, refining the tip, shortening the nose, or rotating the tip. Other patients may want a higher bridge, narrower nostrils, or a tip that does not descend when they smile. In all cases, the results should be natural and harmonious with the over all appearance of each patient, and the breathing ability should be maintained or enhanced.
Factors that affect the outcome of rhinoplasty include: the quality and position of the nose cartilages, the size and shape of the nasal bones, quality and thickness of the nasal skin, pre operative nasal symmetry, the technical ability of the rhinoplasty surgeon, and post operative wound healing.
