    Surgical Nose Reshaping

    Surgical Nose Reshaping is medically known as Rhinoplasty. As the name suggests, the surgery involves changing the nose shape. The reason to go in for Rhinoplasty is to enhance the aesthetic look of the nose or the face. The shape, size, and proportion of the nose are changed by surgery. Some people need to go under the knife to tackle breathing-related issues or rectify birth-related defects or deformities. In nose reshaping surgery, it is possible to change the skin, bone or cartilage or all three. 

    Possible Causes

    Most people undergo reshaping for cosmetic reasons like a deviated septum, cleft palate, etc. However, it can be done for medical reasons as well.
