also referred to as a nose job, or surgery to reshape the nose, plastic surgery on the nose is one
of the most common of all plastic surgery procedures. It can reduce or
increase the size of your nose, remove a hump or bump from the bridge,
change the shape of the tip or the bridge, narrow the span of the nostrils,
slim down a bulbous nose or change the angle between your nose and your
upper lip. Plastic surgery on the nose may also correct a birth defect or injury, straighten
a broken or crooked nose or help relieve some breathing problems or difficulty.
A septoplasty is performed to correct a deviated septum. For a rhinoplasty
to look right for your face you need a careful clinical examination. The
nose should fit the aesthetic proportions of your face and permit the
delivery of air to the lungs without nasal airway obstruction.
The asian nose has specific characteristics that make surgery quite different from the average rhinoplasty of a caucasian patient. Within the group of asian patients further subdivisions of types of noses exist so that the rhinoplasty has to be tailor made to meet each patient's desires and needs. These subdivisions involve various degrees of severity and combinations of a rounded tip, a flat bridge etc.

In this case of Asian rhinoplasty, plastic surgery on the nose, the bridge is raised and narrowed and the nasal width
at the nose-cheek junction narrowed. These are typically problem areas
in the Asian nose. If desired the tip can be changed further to appear
more Caucasian or less rounded if a less ethnic look is desired. This patient wished to keep her tip round.
