Rhinoplasty (Nose contouring surgery)
Rhinoplasty, more popularly known as "nose contouring surgery", allows for the modification of the nose's shape and size. This delicately enhances your facial features without deforming your face. It typically lasts from 1 to 3 hours under general anesthesia, but sometimes it also uses local anesthesia and heavy sedation. Rhinoplasty can augment the nose; reduce its size; and modify the dorsum, nose tip, the width of the nostrils, the angle between the brow and nose, and the angle between nose and upper lip.
At our center, we offer different choices for nose contouring surgery, which include:
