Cosmetic Nose Surgery
Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic plastic surgery procedure to change the shape and contour of the patient's nose. Depending upon the patient's desires, the size of the nose can be increased or decreased. The slope of the nose can be changed, as can the shape of the tip. Rhinoplasty can also be used to straighten a crooked nose or even to alter the appearance of the patient's nostrils. Humps, bumps and other irregularities in the shape of the nose can be corrected.
FaceForum has compiled this rhinoplasty section for our visitors who want to learn more about the procedure. We hope that the rhinoplasty section will provide you with a good foundation for understanding the surgery. While we have done our best to collect information for you, please realize that FaceForum's rhinoplasty section can't answer all of your questions. It is not intended to replace the advice your receive in a one-on-one consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon.
Using FaceForum's Rhinoplasty Section
We have taken the information on rhinoplasty and broken it out into pages that are organized by subtopic. Each of our rhinoplasty pages has previous/next navigation links for those people who wish to proceed in an orderly fashion. On the other hand, if you happen to be the kind of person who likes to skip around from topic to topic, we have also incorporated a Quick Topic Navigation index at the bottom of each page.
