Rhinoplasty (Nose Reshaping/ Nose Job Surgery)

Rhinoplasty or nose correction surgery is done for correction of deformities of the nose, the nature of which can be either functional or aesthetic. The skills required by a “nose job” surgeon are not only surgical, but also artistic. The beauty of the face has to be enhanced and brought out by the nose surgery. Even the slightest miscalculation by the surgeon can completely mar the face.

Dr. S.M Balaji

Dr. S. M. Balaji is a rhinoplasty specialist from Chennai, India, with over 27 years of experience who has performed over 10,000 nose correction surgeries.

Cost of Rhinoplasty (Nose Reshaping/ Nose Job) Surgery

Cosmetic surgeries were once very costly affairs and were usually viewed as being elitist in nature, affordable to only movie stars and celebrities. Nose surgery is a cosmetic surgery that can be best described as being at a nascent stage in India, but awareness of what’s best health wise is slowly being acquired by everybody and nose surgeries are not viewed as luxuries anymore. They have become affordable even to the common man. India is slowly turning into the healthcare destination of choice for many around the world as the cost of healthcare in India is relatively cheap compared to developed nations of the west. Rhinoplasty surgeons in India are also amongst the best in the world and the results speak for themselves. The reasons for undergoing a rhinoplasty can best be described as diverse and personal to each patient. A sculptor’s eye is a prerequisite for a good nose surgery specialist. The proportions of the nose should be perfectly synchronized with the proportions of the face in order to obtain the best possible results. It would not be an exaggeration to say that the best rhinoplasty surgeons are the artist’s of the medical world. The noses of many Hollywood and Bollywood stars are the results of a nose correction specialist’s work, which has been done to such perfection that nobody would even notice that a correction surgery has been performed on the nose.

Surgery Types

Nose surgeries can range from the simplest to the most complicated. They can be performed for solely cosmetic reasons or can be for correctional purposes such as relieving difficulty with breathing or excessive snoring. The following list would enumerate the reasons for which nose surgeries are performed on a regular basis by Dr. S. M. Balaji.
