Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery)
Commonly known as nose surgery, or ‘a nose job’ rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure which involves reshaping the nose in order to make it more proportional with the rest of the face. Nose surgery is not just about reducing the size of the nose, noses can also be increased in size, should that create a better sense of balance in your face.
All aspects of the nose can be altered. As well as the size being changed the shape of the tip and/or the bridge can be altered and the nostrils can be narrowed. The BB Clinic and Beauty Center surgeons can also alter the angle between your nose and your upper lip.
Why choose rhinoplasty?
• If your nose is misshapen due to an injury or accident
• If you have been unhappy with the size or shape of your nose since you were a child
• If you have certain breathing issues, nose surgery can help, depending on the condition
