Rhinoplasty or nose job is a procedure that reshapes the nose for reconstructive or cosmetic purposes. It can alter the shape, size, and contour of the nose, resulting in better facial balance. It can also correct breathing problems.
Before choosing to have a nose job, it is best to learn more about the procedure. Here are 8 quick facts on rhinoplasty from Dr. Scott Thompson in Salt Lake City, UT with all you need to know about nose surgery in Utah.
1.) The surgery has several variations. Ethnic rhinoplasty is one of the most popular forms of the procedure where the nose is narrowed a bit or altered based on patient’s ethnic background and aesthetic goals.
2.) Breathing problems can be corrected by a deviated septum rhinoplasty otherwise known as septoplasty.
3.) Closed rhinoplasty is a technique in performing a nose job where reconstruction is done from within the cavity of the nostrils.
4.) Incisions in an open rhinoplasty are made along the soft tissue between the nostrils or the columnella.
