Nose reshaping, or rhinoplasty, is the surgical correction of nasal deformities. These deformities can be from an injury, after a previous rhinoplasty, or just due to plain old genetics. The shape of the nose is dependent primarily on the underlying structures-namely the nasal bones and the nasal cartilage. In order to reshape almost any aspect of the nose, the cartilage and/or the bones must be manipulated. Sometimes this means removing excess cartilage (e.g. in the case of a boxy tip), or it can mean adding cartilage where it is deficient (e.g. in the case of a drooping tip).
