WHAT IS NOSE RESHAPING?
Rhinoplasty is the medical term for what is commonly referred to as a nose job or nose reshaping. It is a surgical procedure which allows you to re-shape the size of the nose. The shape of the tip, the bridge and also the nostrils can be changed as can the angle between the nose and upper lip, allowing you to either increase or decrease the size of the nose. Occasionally, breathing difficulties can be corrected at the same time.
TYPES OF RHINOPLASTY
There are two types of rhinoplasty: augmentation rhinoplasty and reduction rhinoplasty. Augmentation rhinoplasty is surgery that changes the shape of the nose and reduction rhinoplasty reduces the size of the nose.
