Rhinoplasty is a commonly performed procedure. There are many reasons why a patient would want to undergo a rhinoplasty operation. One of the more common reasons is to soften the appearance of the nose. Often several small changes can add up and lead to a significant change. Small changes to the profile or nasal tip can make the overall appearance of the face much softer.
There may be many time when a person who undergoes a rhinoplasty operation does not receive any comments regarding the change in the appearance of their nose. Often patients regardless of procedure performed do not recall exactly what their nose looked like previously. Sometimes, the improvement in the appearance of the nose is not realized until the before and after photographs are compared.
