Rhinoplasty

Compare 29 clinics

Rhinoplasty surgery, also known as a “nose job” is a type of reconstructive plastic surgery that can be used to aesthetically enhance the nose or restore the nasal functions to their fullest.

There are two types of rhinoplasty: open rhinoplasty and closed rhinoplasty.

Rhinoplasty Candidates

Rhinoplasty or nose surgery is recommended for individuals who wish to enhance the form and look of their nose but also for individuals who suffer from one or more of the following:

● Nasal trauma
● Respiratory impediments
● Congenital nasal defects
● A failed primary nose surgery which requires a rhinoplasty revision

Am I Suitable for Rhinoplasty?

Nose reshaping or rhinoplasty is not recommended for individuals whose physiological development is not complete – children and teenagers fall into this category.

Preparing for Rhinoplasty

The patient should avoid any intake of vitamins, herbal teas, and aspirin for at least 10 days before the procedure. Drinking, eating, and smoking are prohibited for at least 8 hours before a nose surgery.

How is Rhinoplasty Performed?

Local or general anaesthesia is administered to the patient before the nose surgery can begin. Rhinoplasty is a very safe procedure – rhinoplasty complications are rare. Once the anaesthesia sets in, the surgeon proceeds to separate the nasal skin from the rest of the nasal structure.

In a closed rhinoplasty surgery, the surgeon will use the nostrils as entry points to correct the underlying nasal structures consisting of bone and cartilage.

In an open rhinoplasty procedure, the surgeon will cut the columella and then proceed to make the necessary changes. Once the nasal structure is changed according to the patient’s wishes, the surgeon will suture the incisions and apply a stent to further stabilize the nose surgery result. The area is then wrapped in bandages and the rhinoplasty recovery period can begin.

Rhinoplasty Recovery

The rhinoplasty recovery period is not restrictive at all, but there are certain things that the patient needs to keep in mind after the procedure. Patients can usually return to work and normal activities in about a week but contact sports should be avoided for a few months. Rhinoplasty post op tips also include wearing the nasal splint or rhinoplasty cast for a few weeks after the procedure, especially at night. Rhinoplasty healing time is up to a year in most cases, as the swelling will gradually reduce and the final nose shape will be revealed in around 11-12 months.

Scars after Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty scars are very limited, but it depends on the type of nose surgery – an open nose surgery will require cutting the columella but if the closed rhinoplasty technique is used, scars will be practically non-existent.

Rhinoplasty Risks and Complications

The patient will experience bruising, discomfort and swelling for a few weeks after the nose surgery. Painkillers can be used during the rhinoplasty post op period. It’s important to note that the swelling will gradually reduce during the course of a year. Some patients may experience breathing disturbances after the procedure.

Rhinoplasty Success Rates

A survey based on 468 nose surgery reviews sets the satisfaction rate at around 91%. Males generally tend to be less satisfied with rhinoplasty results.

Before and After Rhinoplasty

While rhinoplasty before and after pictures may look appealing it’s worthy to note that the nose will take its final shape in around 12 months after the surgery, so patience and carefully following the doctor’s instructions are the key to a successful rhinoplasty procedure. Patients are generally more satisfied with their look and overall life – this is one of the reasons why rhinoplasty is so popular among men and women around the world.
