Facial surgery on the nose, known as Rhinoplasty surgery, is performed by plastic surgeons to balance and reshape the nose. This is why it is commonly referred to as a “nose job”. This procedure usually requires the doctor to make the nasal structures larger or smaller, or perhaps wider or narrower, depending on the needs of the patient.
Many people look to celebrities in an effort to determine if a nose job might help them improve their appearance. While “celebrity nose jobs” seems common, it is rare that they admit to having it done. However, movie stars are photographed very frequently which makes it fairly simple to determine whether or not they have had a nose surgery procedure.
Rhinoplasty surgery is one of the most common forms of facial surgery. Whether or not you choose to have a nose job is a very private decision and one that should be investigated thoroughly.

The Next Step Before Facial Surgery
Once you select the doctor, and after the initial consult, the surgeon will likely use a 3-D reproduction by taking a few photos of your face. Using that model, the doctor will usually give you options as to how you want your nose to look when the surgery is over. Having a photo of your desired result will help the physician better understand your anticipated outcome from the rhinoplasty surgery.
The rhinoplasty surgeon will ask you questions about your health, medical history, and other factors that might be relevant to the success of the facial surgery (nose job surgery). Be sure that you disclose any information about your past and present physical condition and health.
