There are various myths and misconceptions that people have about rhinoplasty. It is good to learn the truth about this surgical procedure. Rhinoplasty, also referred to as a nose job, is a type of plastic surgery that is aimed at correcting and reconstructing the nose in such a way that facial symmetry is enhanced. The procedure works by cartilage and/or bone modification, and is a safe and effective cosmetic solution. It has been done for a long time and it has proven to be a life-changing procedure that has the power to boost your confidence in the way you look.

Our experienced double board certified surgeons at Jefferson Facial Plastics also correct defects that are capable of causing breathing problems.

Most people are unable to tell the difference between rhinoplasty, septoplasty and sinus surgery. Septoplasty is done to straighten the nasal septum that is inside the nose. The septoplasty surgery addresses nasal obstruction that is mainly caused by septal deviation. Sinus surgery involves dilation of the sinuses opening with the use of special balloons to remove blockage that may be caused by damaged, swollen or infected tissue. Rhinoplasty, as said earlier, involves reconstruction of the nose to enhance appearance.
