In brief: Alters the structure

Nose reshaping or rhinoplasty involves the reshaping of the bone and cartilage structures of the nose.
This might include some conservative removal of tissues or just reshaping and repositioning. This can be done from inside the nose or with small external incisions that are well hidden. You should consult with an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon to see what is best for you.

In brief: Cartilage and bone

The "skeleton" of your nose is made of cartilage and bone.
These a both reshaped though small incisions inside the nose. the skin is redraped and a nasal splint applied. Make sure your nose surgoen is an ENT surgeon or facial plastic surgeon for best results.
