Improves the external shape of the nose
Rhinoplasty, also called nose surgery, reshapes the nose by reducing or increasing the size, removing a hump, changing the shape of the tip or bridge, narrowing the span of the nostrils, or changing the angle between the nose and upper lip. This procedure may also relieve some breathing difficulties when combined with surgery performed on the nasal septum.
Surgery takes approximately one hour or more.
General or intravenous sedation and local anesthesia are used.
This is an outpatient procedure.
Possible Side Effects
Temporary swelling, bruising around the eyes and/or nose, and some bleeding and nasal stuffiness.
