The nose plays a major part in our appearance as well as our ability to breathe and smell. When the nose is damaged by trauma or deformed in some way, it can’t have a negative impact on our health and self-esteem. A rhinoplasty, or nose job, is a surgical procedure that can correct a wide range of cosmetic nasal issues.

The rhinoplasty procedure dates back hundreds of years and has a long tradition of helping people enhance their noses. Today, the nose job is a sophisticated surgical procedure that is generally performed in an open or closed manner, depending on the specifics of the technique.

An open rhinoplasty is performed by making incisions around the nasal framework, whereas the closed procedure has incisions that are made on the inside of the nasal cavity. Consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Jay Granzow if you are concerned about the appearance of your nose.
