A rhinoplasty, commonly known as a nose job, enhances the contours, size and proportions of the nose, restoring facial balance. Any breathing issues, which are caused from irregularities in the shape of the nose, can also be corrected.
The nose is the center of your face, and is one of the first things people see when they look at you. If you’re unhappy with the shape or size of your nose, a rhinoplasty can help to improve your appearance.
It’s important to choose the best nose job surgeon to make sure you get the results you want. In this blog post, double board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Cecil Yeung will explain how to find the best nose job surgeon in Houston.
What is a nose job?
Your nose is the center of your facial appearance, and it also defines your profile. If it is too large or small, or has a non-symmetrical shape, it greatly influences how you look to yourself and others. A nose job is a cosmetic procedure that changes the appearance of your nose, and it can help boost your self-esteem in the process.
Why is a nose job performed?
A rhinoplasty re-contours the nose to your individual desires and needs.
When the nasal structures are reshaped (bone, cartilage, and skin) the changes your plastic surgeon makes can:
- Straighten bends in a nose
- Flatten bumps in the bridge of the nose
- Decrease the size of an overly projecting nose tip
- Smooth down the shape of a protruding nose tip
- Change the angle of the nose tip in relation to the lips
- Reduce the width of a nose to improve its proportion to the face
- Reduce the overall size of an overly large nose
- Correct oversized or upturned nostrils
- Lift a drooping nose tip that has lost support due to ageing
- Repair symmetry to a nose that has suffered injuries
- Fix breathing problems by correcting blocked nasal passages
- Fix breathing problems by aligning the nose to correct a deviated septum

What's involved with a nose job?
Dr. Yeung can perform two types of rhinoplasty, depending on your personalized needs:
- An open rhinoplasty, which uses a small incision under the tip of the nose.
- A closed rhinoplasty where no incisions are made on the exterior skin of the nose. All of the incisions are placed inside the nose.
When you are seeking a rhinoplasty that corrects a previous one, it can be more complex and may require a cartilage graft to shore up support in your internal nasal structures. This usually is needed if there isn’t enough cartilage before the revision surgery.
