Hello Swati,

Rhinoplasty (also known as "nose job" or nose plastic surgery) is a type of plastic surgery that is used to enhance the function or appearance of a person's nose. The technique has a profound history, as it was first developed by Sushruta (often dubbed as the "father of surgery"), who lived in ancient India around 500 BC. Several centuries down the line, his method of forehead flap rhinoplasty is practiced almost unchanged even today. Rhinoplasty can be performed for aesthetic reasons (cosmetic surgery) or to rectify congenital defects or breathing problems (reconstructive surgery).

People with a slightly abnormal nose feel that the shape or size of their nose is a source of social discomfort and embarrassment. But with rhinoplasty, patients don't have to live with a disfigured nose. Plastic surgery can seamlessly enhance the appearance of their nose and, therefore, instill a sense of self-esteem in them. Having a normal looking nose and facial features, they can enjoy social events with confidence and vigor.

Rhinoplasty is performed under general or local anesthesia, depending on the doctor's discretion and the patient's preference. Incisions are made on the nose to remove the soft tissue of the nose, revealing the underlying cartilage and bone. The cartilage and bone is then reshaped to rectify the deformity. A synthetic implant is necessary if the bone structure is weakened or damaged, possibly owing to an accident. The reshaping is not purely cosmetic; it might also be done to improve breathing.

All in all, rhinoplasty is one of the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures. It can effectively alter the shape of the nose tip or the nose bridge, if the patient finds the original features unappealing. Apart from its aesthetic benefits, it can also rectify breathing problems and congenital defects or injury. No wonder why rhinoplasty is a highly prevalent form of plastic surgery.
