Nose job, nosejob ? What is rhinoplasty?
So what is rhinoplasty? Rhinoplasty (rai·now·pla·stee) is a popular nose surgery meant to change the shape of the nose. Resorting to rhinoplasty is often to change ones appearance but it can also be used to improve breathing. Rhinoplasty can requires modifying the bone shape, cartilage and skin to change the appearance of the nose. The upper section of the nose is made of bone while the lower parts are made of cartilage. Before rhinoplasty, your plastic surgeon should always consider all your other facial features and not just focus on your nose in order to obtain perfect facial harmony.
Nose job or rhinoplasty, is one of the most common procedures performed in New York City today. Rhinoplasty surgery not only reshapes the nose, but also has a significant effect on the balance of your facial features. Reshaping the nose includes removal of the dorsal hump, narrowing a wide tip, lifting a droopy nose, straightening a crooked nose, reducing the size, and more. Sometimes, rhinoplasty is covered by insurance.

Patients usually go for a secondary rhinoplasty to fix specific persisting imbalances, either newly formed or that became more noticeable. The nose tends to be imbalanced compared to other facial features due to a first rhinoplasty surgery, healing complications, incomplete follow up or plastic surgery techniques. A secondary rhinoplasty is often much more complicated than a primary rhinoplasty.
