Characteristics of One's Nose
Our nose is the one of our most prominentfeatures, especially if it is larger, wider, or specific in anydifferent kind of way. People with large or extremely wide noses, aswell as those who have some sort of deformation on this part of theirface, get noticed more easily and are often victims of ridicule.Therefore, many people with nose problems develop some sorts ofpersonality problems, leading to the extent of not wanting to showthemselves in public, having troubles making new relationships etc.These people often decide to do something about their problem andthis may even involve having a plastic surgery or undergoing somesort of cosmetic procedure.
Rhinoplasty is the name of the surgicalprocedure having nasal corrections as its main purpose. By subjectingto this medical approach people are able to modify any given aspectsof their noses, including their length, shape, wideness, angle etc.Also, any deformities or anomalies are able to be fixed and removedduring this procedure.

In the same respect, men who experience movement ofthe tip of their nose while they talk or laugh, may get this trait oftheirs corrected through rhinoplasty.
Even though rhinoplasty usually dealswith external nasal modifications, there are different procedureswhich may help people deal with some complications they experienceinside their noses. These include breathing problems caused bydeformations, previous surgeries, birth defects etc. These surgeries,called septal and turbinate, fix any problems one might have with airpathways, or any other factors blocking the inside of one's nose,making it hard for him or her to breathe. Usually, rhinoplasty isperformed at the same time, making internal modifications invisibleon the outside.
As for wide nostrils specifically,there is a special procedure dealing with it. Taking intoconsideration that, most often, wide nostrils are the main culpritwhen it comes to wide noses, these procedures often have nostrilreduction and modification as their goals. Through making internalincisions, one's nostril is reduced, thus resulting in nose widthreduction as well. More complicated procedures may involve externalaction as well.
