Rhinoplasty is the nose operation aimed at correcting aesthetic and functional aspects of the nose, whether in the septum, the tip or the width. It can be performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on the area to be treated.
Rhinoplasty is mainly used to solve aesthetic problems of the nose, such as deviations, bony hump (bone that protrudes on the back of the nose), congenital malformations (cleft palate, lip sequelae), and others acquired in life due to diseases or trauma .
Currently two types of surgery are performed:
Open rhinoplasty: a cut is made in the middle of the nose to better access the bones and cartilage.
Closed rhinoplasty: consists of accessing the nose through the nostrils to carry it out from the inside without leaving scars.
