Rhinoplasty, or nasal contouring, is one of the most common of all facial plastic surgery procedures. Besides alleviating nasal obstruction, rhinoplasty can decrease or increase the size of your nose, refine the shape of the tip, remove an unsightly hump, narrow the span of the nostrils, or change the angle between your nose and your upper lip. It may also correct a birth defect or traumatic nasal injury.
