Rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a nose job, is a surgical procedure that aims to
reshape, resize, or enhance the appearance of the nose. It can address aesthetic concerns
such as a hump on the bridge of the nose, a drooping or bulbous tip, asymmetry, or a
deviated septum that may cause breathing difficulties.







Healthy Lifestyle Tips


Who is a good candidate for rhinoplasty?

  • Good candidates for rhinoplasty are individuals who are unhappy with the appearance of
    their nose and have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the procedure. They should
    be in good overall health, have fully developed facial bones, and be non-smokers.
    Rhinoplasty candidates may seek surgery to address cosmetic concerns or to improve nasal

What are the different types of rhinoplasty procedures?

Rhinoplasty can be classified into two main types: open rhinoplasty and closed rhinoplasty. In
open rhinoplasty, the surgeon makes an incision across the columella (the strip of skin
between the nostrils), allowing for better visibility and access to the nasal structures. In
closed rhinoplasty, the incisions are made inside the nostrils, resulting in no visible external
scarring. The choice of technique depends on factors such as the patient's anatomy, surgical
goals, and the surgeon's preference.


How is rhinoplasty performed?

  • Rhinoplasty is typically performed under general anesthesia. During the surgery, the surgeon
    reshapes the nasal bones, cartilage, and soft tissue to achieve the desired aesthetic outcome.
    This may involve reducing a hump, refining the nasal tip, narrowing the nostrils, or
    straightening a deviated septum. The incisions are then closed, and a splint may be placed on
    the nose to support the new shape during the initial healing phase.

What is the recovery process like after rhinoplasty?

  • Recovery from rhinoplasty involves some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which can be
    managed with pain medication and cold compresses. Patients are typically advised to keep
    their head elevated, avoid strenuous activities, and refrain from blowing their nose for
    several weeks following surgery. While most of the swelling will subside within a few weeks,
    it may take several months to a year for the final results to fully manifest and for the nose to
    settle into its permanent shape.

How long do the results of rhinoplasty last?

The results of rhinoplasty are generally long-lasting, but factors such as aging, trauma, and
continued nasal growth can affect the appearance of the nose over time. By choosing a
qualified and experienced surgeon and following all post-operative care instructions, patients
can help ensure the longevity of their rhinoplasty results.


Can rhinoplasty be combined with other procedures?

Yes, rhinoplasty can be combined with other facial cosmetic procedures such as chin
augmentation, eyelid surgery, or facelift to achieve more comprehensive aesthetic results.
The decision to combine procedures should be made in consultation with a board-certified
plastic surgeon, who can assess the patient's individual needs and goals.
