Nose Surgery / Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is a plastic surgical procedure used to reshape the nose. Aspects such as size, contour and proportions of the nose are all evaluated before plastic surgery and addressed during the rhinoplasty.

Common aesthetic goals include reduction of the dorsal hump, defining an amorphous tip, and narrowing the nostrils. Medical reasons for rhinoplasty include improvement of breathing difficulties due to blocked nasal passages. Such obstruction could be related to a deviated septum or after trauma to the nose.

The rhinoplasty, unlike many other cosmetic surgery operations, is a skeletal procedure. The changes obtained are a result in the changes inflicted to bones and cartilages that support the nose, rather than skin changes. The skin is then expected to re-drape on the modified underlying skeleton. Rhinoplasty can be performed on girls as young as 16 and boys as young as 17 years, as nose growth has to be completed before the cosmetic surgery.

The nose surgery requires 45 minutes to two and a half hours. The surgery can be accomplished under conscious sedation with local or general anaesthesia. It can be performed on a day-basis, or may require an overnight stay, depending on the extent of the plastic surgery.

Swelling and bruising is common after the Rhinoplasty plastic surgery, including the areas under the eyes. A nasal splint is often used for approximately a week after plastic surgery.
