Rhinoplasty (Nose surgery)
Rhinoplasty is the surgery of the nose to either thin, turn up, augment, shorten, elongate or otherwise bring balance to the face through its alteration. This surgery may include Tiplasty, Septoplasty and Rhinoplasty. Tiplasty refines and defines the tip of the nose. It is normally the surgery of the nose involving only the cartilages of the nose. Septoplasty restores and increases functionality as far as ease of breathing. A full Rhinoplasty includes the alteration of the bone and cartilage of the nose and not the septoplasty.
