What Is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty, a plastic surgery procedure also known as a nose job, enhances the shape, size and overall appearance of the nose. This is important, because for many, the nose is the most noticeable facial feature, whether good or bad.

Your nose’s appearance and balance with the other features of your face can be just as important to you as its function in allowing you to breathe properly. At Renew Plastic Surgery, we understand the significance of both form and function.

We want to enhance the natural and attractive appearance of your nose without compromising the function. In fact, rhinoplasty can improve proper function of your nose — improved snoring, sleep disorders, sense of smell and taste as well as your ability to enjoy physical activities.

Don’t let a prominent hump, asymmetrical nostrils, a drooping tip or deviated septum get in the way of your confidence — or happiness — ever again.

A rhinoplasty performed by one of our Minnesota-based surgeons can help improve facial harmony, boost self-confidence and enhance both the functional and cosmetic aspects of your nose.

Wouldn’t it be nice to both feel and breathe better?
