Rhinoplasty is a long process that can actually continue for at least three hours. It depends on what is to be done to the nose. Mainly, people undergo surgery for two purposes- Enlarging and reducing the nose. Here are two different types of surgeries for both the purposes.

  1. Augmentation Rhinoplasty: For people who have a small nose and wish to increase its size, they need to undergo this surgery. In this procedure, surgeons will make a cut inside or between the nostrils and reshape the size of the bone and cartilage. As the nose is small, you may need to add that little bone inside to provide a rise in the nose. Now, one might wonder that from where these extra bones and cartilage are taken? The surgeons are not going to take it from anywhere, but you. Cartilage from ears and bones from the back of your elbow or hip bone. After adding that extra bone, the cuts will be stitched and removed after some days.
  2. Reduction Rhinoplasty: The surgery is meant to reduce the size of the nose. To start with, the surgeons will put a cut inside the nostrils and reach the bone. They will either remove some of the bone and cartilage or reshape both of them to change the shape of a nose in a desired manner.

So, people who wish to undergo this surgery must know how and what all is done in this procedure. After all, little knowledge causes no harm.
