Nose Surgery

Also known as rhinoplasty, nose reshaping or nose job

When to Consider Nose Surgery

  • If you are unhappy with the shape, size or angle of your nose

Cons

  • You may have skin problems or breakdown of skin tissue associated with the use of grafting materials
  • It will take time to adjust to your new look
