Getting a nose job isn’t always about improving appearances. In many cases, it’s about correcting a birth defect, sports injury, or another problem that affects your breathing. If you’re unable to use your nose to full functionality, rhinoplasty (more commonly known as a nose job) might be medically necessary. The procedure reshapes bones, cartilages, and tissues in your nose, and is one of the most common types of plastic surgery.
Though most people think nose jobs are purely cosmetic, Stein Plastic Surgery understands the importance of skillfully rebuilding or repairing a nose to address medical concerns. Altering the internal structure of the nose can improve its external appearance and, more importantly, its function.
