Rhinoplasty surgery is also called a facial or nose reconstruction surgery. This type of surgery reconstructs a nose, cheeks or other facial features by removing portions of the face and replacing them with prosthetic parts.

Other times, the surgeon uses metal or ceramic implants to replace the facial features.
Rhinoplasty procedures include nasal reconstruction, which is usually done to correct birth defects, or to treat snoring, facial deformities, bulging cheeks, excessive fat or facial folds. Other surgeries may be performed to change the size or shape of the nose, lips, cheeks, or forehead.
