Nose surgery, or rhinoplasty, is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in both women and men. This procedure is generally performed to improve or enhance the shape of the nose; however, it may also be performed to improve the function of the nose.

People may want to undergo rhinoplasty for various reasons. They may wish to make the nose thinner, smaller, larger, more upturned or more downturned. Many elect to remove a hump or bump on the bridge or refine the nasal tip. Here are some of the best reasons for electing to undergo rhinoplasty:

Improve Appearance

One of the more common reasons why people choose to have a nose job is to change or improve their appearance. The nose plays an important part in a person’s appearance. Even the smallest of modifications can dramatically improve one’s look. Altering the size or shape of the nose can enhance the other facial features and help to improve overall facial harmony.

Improve Function

Certain defects or structural complications in the nose can disrupt proper function. An individual may have trouble breathing through the nose as a result. While there are different structural issues which can affect the function of the nose, one of the most common problems is a deviated septum. A deviated septum occurs when the septum, or the column of bone and cartilage between the nostrils, becomes off center. Septoplasty can be performed at the same time as rhinoplasty to fix a deviated septum.
