Rhinoplasty plastic surgery procedure can be performed using customized techniques to match with the unique aesthetic or functional needs of a patient.
During the pre-operative consultation, the surgeon will determine the candidacy of the patient for a particular cosmetic rhinoplasty procedure.

Reduction rhinoplasty is one of the more common nose reshaping procedures. This surgery is aimed at creating a nose that is more proportional to other facial features. Reduction rhinoplasty is useful in addressing problems such as an elongated nasal tip, flared nostrils, and a bump on the nose bridge.
The nose surgeon will carefully remove minuscule pieces of cartilage and bone to achieve a reduced and proportionate nose. To reduce the size of nostrils, the surgeon may employ a technique called alar base reduction. In this procedure, the surgeon will remove small amounts of tissue from the area where the nostrils and the cheek meet.
Augmentation rhinoplasty is another popular nose reshaping cosmetic procedure. In this rhinoplasty, the surgeon will graft tissue or bone to create a more substantive nasal tip or bridge. In many cases, the surgeon may use cartilage taken from other sites such as the nasal septum.
But if the patient does not have adequate spare tissue in this area, the surgeon may use cartilage from other sites in the body, such as the rib bone. They could also use synthetic material or other types of biological tissue.
A post-traumatic rhinoplasty procedure can help restore normal nose appearance and function for patients with nose injuries. Surgeons could use this procedure to correct a crooked nose or rectify problems in the nasal septum.
In many cases, post-traumatic rhinoplasty patients suffer from a broken nose. The surgeon may have to re-fracture the nose, and then reset it for optimal results. An experienced nose surgeon can set the nose quickly after the fracture.
Patients that have suffered a loss of their full or partial nose skin cancer, facial trauma, or another condition could benefit from reconstructive rhinoplasty.
The surgeon will use this procedure to rebuild the nose through flap technique, skin grafts, or other innovative techniques. Reconstructive nose surgery is a complicated procedure which may need multiple surgeries over several months.
In ethnic rhinoplasty, the surgeon will use the same techniques as other types of nose reshaping surgeries, but the focus will be on ethnic patients. This procedure is usually performed on people of Afro-American, Hispanic, Middle-Eastern or Asian descent.
People from these ethnic communities often have softer, broader or flatter nasal contours than their American counterparts. The surgeon will enhance the nose shape, while ensuring that the distinct features of these faces remain undisturbed.
Doctors usually recommend that a teen patient should wait till their nose is fully developed before choosing rhinoplasty. But if the patient experiences difficulty in breathing or has been through facial trauma, adolescent rhinoplasty may be performed. The surgeon will protect the fragile nasal features if a teen patient receives this surgery.
