What Problems Can Nose Surgery Correct?


Share This Post

Is your nose the first thing you see when you look in the mirror? A large, misshapen, or overly arched nose can disrupt your facial harmony and distract from your overall appearance. Nose surgery can improve the look and function of your nose.

What is Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery)?

Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a “nose job,” is a surgical procedure that involves altering the structure and appearance of the nose. The procedure can be performed for both cosmetic and functional purposes. Cosmetically, rhinoplasty can help improve the overall appearance of the nose, including changing its size, shape, and proportion to the face. Functionally, rhinoplasty can correct structural issues that impede proper breathing, such as a deviated septum.

During the procedure, Dr. Stile will make incisions to access the underlying bone and cartilage of the nose, then reshape and sculpt it to achieve the desired outcome. He performs nose surgeries in two to four hours under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis.

What Nose Problems Can Rhinoplasty Fix?

Dr. Stile can use different techniques for rhinoplasty depending on your needs and goals. He will likely perform open or external rhinoplasty with an incision under the nose for more complex procedures. Simpler procedures can be done with closed rhinoplasty, where the incisions are inside the nostrils. Rhinoplasty can achieve several cosmetic and functional goals tailored to your specific concerns.


If you don’t like the shape or size of your nose, you may feel that it takes over your entire appearance. Your nose is crucial to facial balance and harmony. Some of the cosmetic concerns rhinoplasty can address include:

  • An overly large nose
  • Nostrils that are too wide or flared
  • An overly arched nasal bridge
  • A misshapen or crooked nose
  • An asymmetrical nose


In addition to enhancing your nose aesthetically, rhinoplasty can also correct functional issues and improve breathing. Nose surgery can fix breathing problems by correcting:

  • A deviated septum
  • A broken nose
  • An obstructed airway

Results and Recovery After Rhinoplasty

After the procedure, your nose will be bandaged and stabilized with splints. Swelling, bruising, and discomfort are normal during this time. Most patients return to work or school after one week. You may need to wait a month or more for more strenuous activities.

You’ll see the results of your rhinoplasty as swelling fades and your nose heals. Though you’ll see gradual improvements, it may take a year or more to see the full results. The results of rhinoplasty are permanent, so you’ll never have to worry about your nose again.
