Rhinoplasty (nose job) is a procedure to alter the appearance of the nose while maintaining or improving its breathing function.
It is believed that aesthetic surgery of the nose was practiced in the times of ancient Egypt and India as long as 3,000 years ago.
In modern-day rhinoplasty, aesthetic principles demand symmetry and harmony of the components of the nose. The external shape of the nose depends upon the architecture of the underlying cartilages and bone, offering the surgeon a tremendous opportunity to enhance the appearance of the nose by varying those structures under the nasal skin.
The two most commonly used approaches are:
External Rhinoplasty and Endonasal Rhinoplasty
The primary difference between these two approaches is that, in the case of external rhinoplasty, a tiny incision is created under the nasal tip, making it possible for the surgeon to elevate the nasal skin to directly visualize the underlying infrastructure. A properly executed external rhinoplasty incision is virtually unnoticeable.
The goal of rhinoplasty is to achieve a nasal form that is harmonious with the rest of the face. Successful rhinoplasty can improve the appearance of the nose and the whole face as well. It generally should be avoided in pre-puberty years unless it is related to a cleft palate deformity.
I like to use a closed approach (Endonasal) for most primary rhinoplasties. I focus on correct diagnosis, minimal dissection of tissues and precise placement of grafts.
