Rhinoplasty in Toronto: The Three Common Types

Primary rhinoplasty

Also known as a standard nose job, this procedure is designed to improve the nasal shape, size or contours. Cosmetic rhinoplasty may involve subtle tip work, the addition of cartilage to build up a bridge, or alar ( nostril) reshaping. Men and women of all ages choose rhinoplasty in Toronto to improve how their noses look. With alterations measured in mere millimetres, a nose job can change a person’s entire look for the better. Your eyes, lips and facial balance can be improved in the hands of a skilled surgeon.

Commonly referred to as a nose job, nasal surgery allows a person to change the size of their nose, change the shape of the tip or bridge, narrow the span of the nostrils, or change the angle between the nose and the upper lip. Dramatic improvements to facial proportion and harmony of features are achieved through meticulous and subtle adjustments. In the hands of a skilled and experienced facial cosmetic surgeon, a person’s appearance can be improved without it appearing obvious they had surgical modifications. learn more.


Due to previous injuries or genetic traits, a person’s septum may be crooked and impair airflow. The septum consists of hard bone and cartilage midline between the nostrils. Breathing difficulties and snoring will often lead people to see their ENT or facial plastic surgeon for septum repair. This functional procedure is not intended to enhance the appearance of the nose. If visible changes are also desired, you can combine cosmetic and reconstruction surgery with what’s known as a septorhinoplasty.

Ethnic Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty in Toronto will be done using different techniques depending on the ethnic features a client presents with. In most cases, people want their nose to be more proportionate with the rest of their face, or to improve one aspect they see as less than ideal. Different genetic backgrounds mean a variety of nose characteristics for rhinoplasty patients. While Persian, Asian or African patients opt for nose jobs, they typically wish to retain their unique and natural features. A skilled rhinoplasty surgeon will have experience working with a variety of faces and nose types. Rhinoplasty should be personalized. Experienced surgeons who are familiar with different techniques and ethnic factors will have a body of work to show varied results, not a one-size-fits-all approach.

Are you interested in rhinoplasty, but not sure which technique will be right for you? Perhaps you want to have a straighter nose or remove a bump. Your profile may bother you, or your nasal tip.
