Every year, tens of thousands of people who are interested in improving the appearance of their noses seek consultation with facial plastic surgeons.

Undesirable features of the nose include big bumps, large nose, short nose, flat nose, bent nose and bulky nasal tip.

Rhinoplasty or nose job is set out to reshape and refine patients' nasal profiles.

Facial palsy (facial paralysis) is one of the most devastating conditions. Apart from the cosmetic consequence, patients may have difficulty closing their eyes and dribble saliva and fluid from corners of their mouth.
