Rhinoplasty can correct the shape of the nose, refining facial balance and enhancing the overall appearance. A common reason people pursue rhinoplasty is to straighten a crooked nose. Straightening a crooked nose can be challenging and requires an experienced cosmetic surgeon. Your surgeon will likely readjust the bone and cartilage underneath your skin. Your surgeon can change the shape of your nasal bones or cartilage in several ways, depending on how much needs to be removed or added, your nose’s structure, and available materials. Some cosmetic procedures require an upgrade after several or more years, this is not true of a rhinoplasty. A good rhinoplasty will last you a lifetime, so it is important to choose the right surgeon.
