Rhinoplasty is the term used to describe various operations to change nasal structure in order to improve appearance and function. Patients seek plastic surgery of the nose in order to improve appearance and correct deformities due to injury, or disease. Rhinoplasty is universally considered by Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeons to be the most challenging operation in terms of results, in the entire field of operations performed for elective improvement in appearance. Those individuals seeking treatment for cosmetic improvement in the nose should insure that the surgeon selected has extensive experience and interest in the field of elective nasal surgery. Ask your surgeon if rhinoplasty is a focus of their practice, and the extent of experience in terms of time and procedures performed. Your surgeon should have before and after photos of his/her work to demonstrate results consistent with your desires.
