Nasal surgery (Rhinoplasty)

The nose takes a foreground on a human face and any defect of it will be noticed at once. The goal of rhinoplasty is to reshape your nose so that it complements your other facial features and overall facial balance.

If you have difficulty in breathing through your nose because of deformity of your nasal septum or other intranasal structures, correction of those can be performed at the same time with rhinoplasty.

Rhinoplasty – is a plastic surgery procedure for correcting the form, restoring the functions and aesthetically enhancing the nose.

Rhinoplasty can be performed through a 'closed' approach. In this case all incisions are placed within the nose, particulary in primary procedures.

During the 'open' approach rhinoplasty a small incision is made accross the columella. It is used in cases such as revision of unsatisfactory results of primary rhinoplasty or for the patients with thick nasal skin and weak cartilage support.
