All About Rhinoplasty
What is Rhinoplasty? Of all plastic surgery procedures, nose enhancement, or rhinoplasty, is among the most common. Nasal enhancement can be performed on any part of the nose, to increase or reduce its size, to modify the size and shape of nostrils, tip or bridge of the nose or to alter the slope or angle of the nose. Rhinoplasty may also be used to correct an injury or birth defect, and to improve breathing.
