Rhinoplasty is also known as a nose job, and this name is easy to remember because the word rhino means nose and the word plastic means to repair. Many people who have a substantial amount of money decide to get a nose job.

It is a miracle treatment for those who may have a deformity or if they were not blessed in the “rhino” area. It can also help people who have breathing problems. Septoplasty, on the other hand, is the restoration of the nasal septum. The nasal septum is a section of cartilage that separates both nostrils.

This surgery is a prevention measure to protect against nasal obstruction because some people possess a congenital defect of the nasal septum in which it turns either to the left or right of the nasal cavities. When this occurs, a nasal blockage can happen.

We are all born with different features, but if a person does not like the features they are born with, they do have the option to change them. This is thanks to plastic surgery. A key feature that a person can modify on their face is their nose. There are two types of procedures that can be performed to change a person's nose. The first is Rhinoplasty. This procedure will correct the nose shape and make the nose appear symmetrical to the rest of the face. The second is Septoplasty. This focuses on the septum, which can correct a crooked septum.
