All kinds of aspects of the nose can be altered with rhinoplasty (nosejob) surgery, such as making it appear straighter, smaller, narrower, broader, altering the angle of the nose in relation to the upper lip, changing the shape of the nasal tip, and many more options too numerous to mention. The middle of the nose can be changed to make it smaller or larger and a dip can be created before the tip. Humps and bumps can be reduced or eliminated. Alternatively noses can be made to appear perfectly straight in profile, or just smaller altogether, although nasal tip surgery is slightly more complicated. Nasal tips can be reduced, enlarged, rotated upwards or downwards, or projected forwards or backwards.
Speak to your rhinoplasty specialist for details about your individual nose surgery. Every nose is different so each rhinoplasty operation is unique to the person and involves a completely unique set of circumstances. Sometimes it may not be possible to make a really big nose small, but the balance between the tip of the nose and the bridge can be altered to make it more in proportion. Rhinoplasty can result in considerable changes being achieved to the appearance while maintaining normal nasal function, and most patients are delighted with their new nose. Modern nose surgery techniques mean that a nose job is very safe with most people undergoing rhinoplasty surgery without any complications at all. This fact sheet of information about nose (rhinoplasty) surgery will help you understand the issues involved and what to expect from a nosejob operation.
