When is a Rhinoplasty Recommended?

Rhinoplasty, also known as nose surgery, is a cosmetic procedure that changes the look of your nose and may be a great help in restoring facial balance. Your nose is a defining feature of your face, right in the center, and it has a high degree of impact on your profile as well as your facial harmony. Common issues people have with their nose shape are: it’s too small, too large, or one side looks different from the other.
