Rhinoplasty is remodeling of the nose. Surgery of the nose can reduce the size, remove bumps, curves, or ridges, lower the bridge, and contour the tip. Although there is not an age limit for this procedure, the earliest recommended age is mid-teens, a time when the nose is near full development. Rhinoplasty may also improve the airway and breathing.
