Rhinoplasty: Plastic Surgery for Your Nose


Rhinoplasty: Plastic Surgery for Your Nose.

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).
