Rhinoplasty is a plastic surgery performed on the nose, and is one of the top-requested procedures, given that your nose is the central part on your face, so its size and shape affect your appearance. Nasal surgery can reduce the size, reshape or augment the size of a person's nose, to create pleasant facial harmony and boost self esteem. Dr. Zakhary has extensive training and expertise in both cosmetic and reconstructive nasal surgery.
When choosing nose surgery for the first time, it’s referred to as primary. Thus, primary rhinoplasty is nose reshaping surgery performed on a nose which has never been operated on before for aesthetic purposes.
On the contrary, when people undergo nose surgery to improve breathing will typically have what’s known as a septoplasty. This procedure to straighten and clear nasal passages deals with the central bone and cartilage that make up the septum. If combining this functional improvement with visible, aesthetic changes, then it will be termed, “septorhinoplasty.”
No matter how simple or complex the procedure, rhinoplasty surgery needs excellent skill and precision to get the best possible results.
