The nose is a prominent part of the face and can therefore have a significant impact on how we feel about ourselves. It also plays an important role in our everyday lives, so it is essential that it functions properly. Nose surgery, or rhinoplasty, is a relatively fast procedure and produces immediately visible results.
Nose abnormalities can occur as a result of accidents or be present from birth. Fortunately, significant improvements can be made through surgery in both cases. Variations to the outside of the nose are usually due to the septum not being straight, which can also cause breathing problems. Surgical intervention can help with this issue. Your nose is not just a feature of your face, but also an important part of your sensory system. It plays an important role in breathing and speech, among other things, which is why we often improve its physiological function along with its aesthetic appearance.
