Rhinoplasty or a “nose job” is a type of plastic surgery that is considered both cosmetic and corrective. Certainly reconstruction of a broken nose following a trauma is in most cases a necessary procedure. Aside from accidents adults of all ages, especially those over 50 are appreciating many important health benefits by surgically opting for the shape, size and position of nose they have long desired. Rhinoplasty involves surgically sculpting the cartilage and bone inside the nose. In most cases a skilled surgeon makes the incisions for the procedure inside the patient’s nose. Rhinoplasty can modify the size, shape and overall appearance of the nose. The surgery offers improved health benefits such
- Correcting air flow and improving breathing by repairing a deviated septum

More than 200,000 people a year opt to have rhinoplasty making it the fifth most popular cosmetic surgery.
