What happens during rhinoplasty?

Many of my Houston rhinoplasty patients will ask what is done exactly during rhinoplasty? Nose job surgery can either performed as an open rhinoplasty or closed rhinoplasty. With open rhinoplasty, a small incision is made between the nostrils and the skin over the cartilage and bone is elevated. The cartilage is then reshaped, possibly reduced in size, and refined. Cartilage may be taken from the septum after performing a septoplasty for a deviated septum and used as grafts during rhinoplasty as well.
