A nose job (technically called a rhinoplasty) is surgery on the nose to change its shape or improve its function. It can be done for medical reasons — such as to correct breathing problems related to the nose or correct disfigurement resulting from trauma or birth defects and also for cosmetic reasons, which will change the nose’s shape and appearance.


Possible changes that our surgeon can make to your nose through rhinoplasty include:

  • a change in size
  • a change in angle
  • straightening of the bridge
  • reshaping of the tip
  • narrowing of the nostrils


If your rhinoplasty is being done to improve your appearance rather than your health, you should wait until your nasal bone is fully grown. For girls, this is about age 15. Boys might still be growing until they’re a bit older. However, if you’re getting surgery because of a breathing impairment, rhinoplasty can be performed at a younger age.



The most suitable candidates for a rhinoplasty surgery can be evaluated in three categories:

1) Appearance: 

– Nose looking too large compared to the whole face,

– Nose looking too wide during frontal view,

– A sagging or dropped nose tip,

– A thick or wide nose tip,

– Too wide nostrils,

– An unpleasant appearance resulting from a previous operation (secondary surgery) performed in another center,

– An asymmetrical nose resulting from a previous wounding.

Following the operation, patients are extremely pleased with their general appearance, and their self-confidence increases remarkably. In various scientific studies, it has been revealed that this fact contributes positively to the patients’ social and professional lives.

2) Wounding: If you have been wounded in an accident which has caused a nasal deformity, rhinoplasty can be applied in order to help you considerably regain the former appearance of your nose.

3) Breathing: In patients with narrow nasal cavities especially caused by severe deviation, breathing problems can be eliminated by rhinoplasty and/or septoplasty.
