Rhinoplasty is surgery on the nose. Normally it is done for cosmetic reasons however it may also be done as way to correct a deviated septum so that you can breathe better. Many people have had rhinoplasy and it is generally considered to be a safe operation. However as with all surgery there are some risks involved. You are going to have to decide if it is worth it.
The first thing that you are going to have to do if you are considering rhinoplasty is to find a surgeon who can do it. In most cases you are going to want to use a plastic surgeon but there are other types of surgeons who may perform it as well, in particular an ear, nose and throat specialist. The big thing is to make sure that they are properly qualified and board certified. You are also going to want to make sure that they have experience doing this type of surgery. Finally you will want to sit down with your doctor and discuss the procedure and make sure that you are comfortable with your surgeon.
The actual procedure of rhinoplasty is fairly simple. The make a small incision in your nose and in most cases they will remove some cartilage from your nose. In a small number of cases they will add cartilage to your nose instead. This is rare however since there are not a lot of people who want a bigger nose. If they are also correcting a deviated septum they will make sure that it is straight at this point. Then it is simply a matter of closing the incision and the procedure is done.
