The nose is said to be the keystone of the face whereby one’s initial glance at the face is attracted by the nose and eyelid expression prior to encompassing the whole face.
The size, symmetry and shape of the nose may be out of balance in some people and need correction. Nasal defects may develop as a result of birth deformity, injury, infection, tumours or even abnormal growth and be accompanied by airway obstruction. Nasal obstruction can be corrected at the time of surgery.
