About Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a nose job, is a surgery which changes the shape of the nose. The procedure involves making the nose bigger or smaller, changing the shape and proportion in order to make it fit better with other facial features, or correcting a bump or any other imperfections.

Rhinoplasty is commonly performed for aesthetic reasons, but is also performed to help patients with a deviated septum or breathing problems to help them breathe better. The surgery may be performed by an otolaryngologist, (which is an ear, nose and throat specialist, commonly referred to as ENT specialist), a plastic surgeon, or a maxillofacial surgeon, who specializes in treating the jaw, face, and neck.

Before Rhinoplasty abroad

Patients will attend an initial consultation where they can discuss their desired results and talk through any issues with the surgeon.

The surgeon will usually check the patient's medical history and run tests such as a blood test and a physical exam.

The surgeon may take photographs of the nose, in order to study it and possibly to make digital enhancements to establish and show what the nose may look like. The photographs can then be used as a reference and can show the before and after surgery.

The patient will usually be advised to stop taking certain medications before the surgery, such as aspirin and to refrain from smoking.

It is advisable for patients to arrange for someone to accompany them back to the hotel.

How is it performed

The patient is usually administered with a local anesthetic and sedation, or with a general anesthetic. The surgeon will begin by making an incision either inside the nose, which is a common procedure as there is no visible scarring, or at the base of the nose.

There are many different rhinoplasty methods, including inserting an implant, bone shaving, or repositioning the bones. If there is cartilage being used to change the shape, size or angle of the nose, this may be taken from deeper inside the nose or from other areas of the body, such as the ribs, if larger amounts are required.

Anesthesia

Local or general anesthetic.

Procedure duration

The Rhinoplasty takes 1 to 4 hours.

Rhinoplasty
The surgeon reshapes the nose into the desired shape or size.

What to expect after Rhinoplasty

Post procedure care

Most patients experience some swelling, bruising, black eyes, and bleeding from the nose. It is recommended to use ice packs to stop the swelling, and take painkillers if needed. Most surgeons advise waiting 2 weeks or more before doing any exercise.

Possible discomfort

Swelling and discomfort following surgery is inevitable, and patients should expect to have a day or two of rest following the procedure, and may need to refrain from strenuous activities for a longer period.
