Conditions & Treatments

Nose

Treatments
Below are the treatment option available for Nose Related Problems:

  • Nose Shaping (Rhinoplasty): Rhinoplasty is performed to correct breathing problems related to the nose. It may also correct disfigurement of the nose that has occurred because of trauma or birth defects. Cosmetic rhinoplasty is performed on normal noses to improve their shape and appearance. Nose surgery can reduce or increase the size of your nose, or change the size or shape of the tip, the bridge, or nostrils. Rhinoplasty is usually done as an outpatient procedure under either general or local anesthesia. The incisions are made within the nostrils and may also be made across the base of the nose, in more difficult cases. The inner bone and cartilage are reshaped to produce a more pleasing shape.
