The position or shape of a nose can be corrected for many reasons. A crooked nose resulting from a trauma or deviated nasal septum can cause breathing difficulties, thus necessitating a correction. In that case, the intervention will be reimbursed by the health insurance. On the other hand, the form of the nose can be improved for cosmetic reasons. A rhinoplasty is often performed due to a combination of functional and cosmetic reasons .
Sometimes a filler (hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxylapatite) is sufficient for smaller aesthetic corrections .
