Nose surgery (rhinoplasty) is a procedure to reshape the nose in order to create a more pleasing look and, in some instances, to correct breathing problems. Rhinoplasty usually involves reducing the size of the nose by removing and sculpting the nasal tissues in order to enhance the facial appearance.
The results are unique to each individual and depends upon factors such as skin condition and thickness, nasal and facial structure, genetic contributions, and age. Traditionally, a “nose job” was performed only to correct major problems. However, recent surgical innovations allow for individuals to benefit from more moderate improvements from the procedure as well. In general, having nose surgery provides the patient with a better facial balance and overall appearance.
If rhinoplasty is being utilized to correct a breathing problem or nose deformity, the procedure may be covered under your health insurance policy.
