Rhinoplasty can produce changes in the appearance and structure of the nose by reshaping, reducing or increasing size, removing the hump, changing the tip or bridge, narrowing the span of the nostrils or changing the angle between the nose and upper lip.

This procedure may also be done to relieve some breathing problems or correct birth defects and nasal injuries. In some cases, only the tip of the nose requires correction. In this case, tip rhinoplasty is performed.

There is not a universal type of rhinoplasty surgery that will meet the needs of every patient. Nose surgery is customised for each patient, depending on his or her needs. Working through the nostril, the closed technique can be performed. The open technique is reserved for a more extensive nasal correction. A splint is applied (which remains for seven days) and plugs are inserted overnight. Some techniques of tip rhinoplasty use cartilage grafts to enhance the projection of the nasal tip. If an in-fracture is performed, bruising around the eyes is experienced in varying degrees.

The best candidates for this type of surgery are individuals who are looking for improvement, not perfection, in the appearance of their nose. In addition to realistic expectations, good health and psychological stability are important qualities for a patient considering rhinoplasty surgery. The rhinoplasty can be performed in conjunction with other surgeries.
