Rhinoplasty in Poland

Compare 3 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.

Poland

Poland or the Republic of Poland is located in Central Europe. It neighbours Germany, The Czech Republic, Slovakia, Ukraine, Belarus, Russia and Lithuania.

Poland’s countryside is traditional and unspoiled. Tourists can visit museums, churches, rural centres, castles and traditional Polish workshops. Since Poland joined the European Union there was an influx of international travellers coming into the country and discovering its rich cultural, natural and gastronomic heritage. Travellers can indulge in history, architecture, different types of food and nature.

Healthcare

Poland has a reliable state-funded healthcare system. Generally, doctors in Poland are extremely well trained. Soon after Poland entered the European Union, the private healthcare sector thrived and more private clinics and hospitals were opened.

Poland also has plenty of medical universities and university hospitals: The Medical University of Bialystok, The Medical University of Warsaw, The Medical University of Poznan and many others.

Many tourists visit Poland solely for medical care, with dental care and plastic surgery being the preferred choice. Most patients come from the Scandinavian countries, Germany and Belarus but patients from the United Kingdom and United States are also quite common.

Some of the most important cities in Poland are:

Warsaw – The capital of Poland and a thriving business centre
Gdansk – Formerly known as Danzig
Cracow – The Cultural Capital of Poland
Poznan – It is considered to be the birthplace of the Polish nation

Sights to See

Cracow is the Cultural Capital of Poland. It’s also Poland’s historical capital in the middle ages. The old town of Cracow is filled with monuments, churches and traditional Polish buildings. Cracow is also the home to Europe’s largest medieval market place. Cracow’s old town is an UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Bialowieza National Park is an UNESCO World Heritage Site – it’s a huge area of woodland on the border with Belarus.

Malbork Castle is the biggest red brick Gothic castle in Europe. This is also an UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Slowinski National Park is the home to the biggest dunes in Europe. It’s also very close to the Baltic Sea so a trip is well worth it.

The Wieliczka Salt Mine is the oldest enterprise in the world and one of the most beautiful places in Poland. The salt mine has been operational since the 13th century and it has its own Church built entirely out of salt. The salt statues built by the miners themselves are also worth seeing.
