One of the most popular facial plastic surgery procedures is a rhinoplasty (also known as a “nose job”). In fact, according to the 2017 Plastic Surgery Statistics Report, rhinoplasty surgery ranked number three, with 218,924 procedures performed.
When you have your nose reshaped to be in better balance with your other facial features, the results can be dramatic.

What are some of the reasons people undergo a rhinoplasty procedure?
- Nose size in relation to facial balance
- Nose width at the bridge or in the size and position of the nostrils
- Nose profile with visible humps or depressions on the bridge
- Nasal tip that is enlarged or bulbous, drooping, upturned or hooked
- Nostrils that are large, wide or upturned
- Nasal asymmetry

Rhinoplasty can reshape your nose in virtually any way to give you the look you desire. If you would like a small nose, some of the bone and cartilage can be removed. If there is a hump, it can be reduced. Your nose can be straightened, made wider or narrower, shorter or longer.
If you have a deviated septum (one nostril wider than the other), you might have some difficulty with breathing at times. A nose surgery can address that problem at the same time as it improves your nose shape and size. It can also address any damage caused by trauma such as a car accident or sports accident.
How do you know if you are a candidate for a rhinoplasty?
To be a good rhinoplasty candidate, you need to have good overall health and no conditions that could interfere with recovery. Other key factors include:
- Fully developed nose (usually by age 15)
- Emotional maturity
- Having realistic expectations of the procedure
The rhinoplasty procedure can be done in two ways: open or closed. The open method uses an incision between the nostrils. This allows for better visualization of the interior structures of the nose and is best for more extensive modifications to the nose. The closed method uses all internal incisions. Often, this approach is used when fewer modifications to the nose are needed.
