Nasal surgery (Rhinoplasty) is among the most common surgeries performed by Cosmetic Plastic Surgeons. It can change the shape of the whole nose or a small part, making it fit more harmoniously with the rest of the face. If breathing problems are associated with the cosmetic deformity then they are also corrected simultaneously. 
Rhinoplasty is usually an outpatient procedure performed under either local or general anesthesia and  takes two to three hours to be completed. It can be done through a closed or an open approach depending on the deformity. The open or external approach involves making a small incision on the columella (the small center portion of the nose). 
The structures of the nose are then visualized by lifting under the skin towards the top part of the nose. The endonasal approach uses incisions inside the nose to lift the skin and see the internal nasal structures. The patient can look presentable 7-8 days after surgery though minor bruising and swelling may take up to a month to resolve. 

Cosmetic surgery of the nose is among the most complex operations performed in the head and neck area.
