Rhinoplasty is a procedure that allows the correction of aesthetic deformities in the nose, or of consequences from trauma, with or without associated functional perturbations. It can implicate the correction of the nasal dorsum, of the nasal tip and of the deviation of the nasal septum. Also, it might or might not include the fracture of the bones of the nose. This is a highly demanding technical procedure, often in need of detail, which requires a differentiation of the plastic surgeon in order to obtain natural results in harmony with the patient's face. The medical appointment is very important in order to evaluate the most adequate type of rhinoplasty and the one that ensures long lasting and aesthetic balanced results.
Frequently, it is applied the technique of open rhinoplasty that leaves a 3-4 mm scar, barely visible in the nasal columella.
