Reshaping the nose

Rhinoplasty is a term used to describe reshaping the nose. Rhinoplasty is performed for either functional or cosmetic reasons or both. Functional rhinoplasty is required when a patient has significant problems associated with breathing through their nose. The goal of a functional rhinoplasty is to improve the nasal airway and usually doesn’t cause much alteration in the appearance of the nose.
