Rhinoplasty (Nose surgery)
Rhinoplasty is the surgery of the nose to either thin, turn up, augment, shorten, elongate or otherwise bring balance to the face through its alteration and may include It also and more than likely will include Tiplasty to refine and define the tip of the nose as well. Tiplasty is normally the surgery of the nose involving only the cartilages of the nose. Septoplasty, to restore or otherwise introduce functionality as far as ease of breathing to the individual. All three of these can be performed together, but for cosmetic reasons only many patients seek the full rhinoplasty which include the alteration of the bone and cartilage of the nose and not the septoplasty.
