Corrective jaw surgery is performed in order to correct any number of skeletal or dental problems that are getting in the way of someone’s ability to feel confident when they smile. This type of jaw surgery can fix misalignments of the jaw and misalignments in the teeth not only to allow for an improved appearance, but also to fix functional problems.

#3 – Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is more commonly known as a nose job and is a cosmetic procedure that is performed with a goal of changing the size and/or shape of the nose. This can include making the bridge of the nose smaller, changing the angle of the nose, reshaping the tip of the nose and even narrowing the nostrils.
