Rhinoplasty is most commonly called a nose job and is typically used to change the shape or size of the nose. It can be used for a variety of concerns, from repairing the nose after an injury to smoothing a bump on the bridge of the nose. You may also choose to use it to change the width of the nose bridge, to make your nostrils more symmetrical, to improve the aesthetics of your nose tip or to balance the size of your nose to the rest of your face. Rhinoplasty procedures are incredibly popular and can do so much to improve the confidence levels of teenagers and adults alike.
