The purpose of rhinoplasty (nasal plastic, nasal surgery) is to remove the aesthetic defects of the nose, and adjust the respiratory function of the nose, if it’s necessary.
Aesthetic rhinoplasty removes external nasal defects such as: a hump, a disproportionately large nose, a saddle nose, a deformed nose as a result of an injury, or a previously unsuccessful rhinoplasty, a wide or narrow nose, asymmetry of the wings of the nose, a wide nose end, etc.
Functional nasal plastic (rinoseptoplasty) eliminates nasal defects, that lead to nasal breathing disorders, and complications associated with it. The most often problem, is a surgery on the nasal redistribution.
Usually rhinoplasty, is performed after the full formation of the face skeleton and nose. For women its after 16 years, for men after 18 years. Functional rhineseptoplasty can be performed earlier but only after doctors approval.
