Rhinoplasty is a facial cosmetic procedure that is usually performed to enhance the appearance of a nose or to reconstruct a nose to a proper shape. It is a popular option for many patients who are unhappy with the size and appearance of their nose. Rhinoplasty surgery can also be undertaken to improve nasal capacity after a traumatic accident, or to help with problems in breathing while exercising or sleeping.

Rhinoplasty surgery is a comparatively safe procedure with little side effects. Rhinoplasty is recommended mainly for adults, as facial growth in young adults will have an adverse effect on the shape and function of the nose over time. The surgery can facilitate improved breathing as well as enhance features by resizing or reshaping the nostrils, while also decreasing or increasing the overall dimension of the nose.
