Aesthetic rhinoplasty (nose job) typically is performed to reduce the overall size of the nose, reshape a tip, remove a nasal hump, or improve a poor angle between the nose and the upper lip. In some patients it is necessary to add tissue in order to improve contour. One or all of these changes can be made during a single operation. The extent of the procedure depends on what changes are desired and what Dr. Azouz deems appropriate.
Nasal surgery is performed under a local anesthesia with sedation which numbs the nasal area. Medication to relieve tension is given before the anesthetic is administered. The sedative and local anesthetic allow you to be comfortable during surgery.
