What is Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is a small surgical cosmetic operation that intends to minimize the size of the nose and treat any medical conditions such as breathing problems, sinus problems, or any defects that the nose suffers from.

Rhinoplasty has a lot of techniques that vary depending on the case of the patient. The patient must be older than 18 years old to be a candidate for a Rhinoplasty operation, and their facial bones must be developed and complete.
