Rhinoplasty-surgery to reshape the nose-is a common procedure for both cosmetic and functional requests. In this article, the author provides an overview of rhinoplasty, with special emphasis on the surgical anatomy and preoperative analysis of appearance. A review of some of the surgical techniques at the disposal of the rhinoplasty surgeon is also provided and illustrated with patient examples.
