Rhinoplasty can be used to modify the shape, size, and overall appearance of the nose. In some cases, a plastic surgeon may recommend that a chin implant be inserted at the same time. This will help to balance out the facial features more completely.
Many times, rhinoplasty patients ask their surgeons to:
- Widen or narrow their nostrils
- Straighten their crooked noses
- Reshape the tip of their noses
- Alter the angle between their noses and upper lips
In most cases, the incisions used for nose reshaping cosmetic surgery can be hidden inside the nose or placed inconspicuously outside it. Minimal scarring fits in with the overall goal of improving appearance and maintaining a natural look.
Because rhinoplasty is different for each patient, the cost of rhinoplasty treatment will vary depending on a number of factors. Patients should discuss the total cost of surgery with their physicians, as well as payment and financing options.
