Rhinoplasty changes the profile of the nose by reshaping the bones and cartilages. It seeks to improve the appearance of the nose by removing its unsightly aspects. The skin readapts to the new shape of the bone and cartilage beneath it.  Consequently, it is  assumed that the quality of the skin influences the quality of the final result.

The consultation is frequently accompanied by a digital simulation of the nose in profile  so as to give the patient an image of what result to expect. This step often brings the patient back to reality once a coherent image in line with technical constraints is presented to him. Discussion can then begin about the size and shape of the nose.
