Rhinoplasty (nose surgery) is a procedure that alters the shape of your nose. This can be done for cosmetic or functional reasons. During rhinoplasty, your surgeon adds or removes cartilage and bones to change the shape of your nose. They may also change the size of your nostrils. The surgeon can also repair nasal deformities caused by injury or birth defects.

Rhinoplasty is one of the most challenging surgical procedures to perform. Despite this, many surgeons can achieve results that both you and your partner are satisfied with. Even very slight changes to the nose’s structure can make a significant difference to your appearance. However, if you and your doctor aren’t completely satisfied with your results, it’s important to wait until your nose has healed fully before considering a second operation.

Depending on your specific needs, your surgeon will use either local or general anesthesia. If you choose to have rhinoplasty performed under general anesthesia, you’ll inhale a drug through an IV line that will make you unconscious. Local anesthesia is used to numb the area around your nose before you undergo the procedure.
