Rhinoplasty - Nose

Rhinoplasty known as 'nose job' or 'nose reshaping' is a procedure to correct and reconstruct the form of the nose.

It restores the functions and enhances the nose aesthetically.

Following people are suitable for rhinoplasty procedure:

  • If you have an abnormal appearance of the nose due to birth defects, injury or medical conditions.

  • If you feel your nose is aesthetically unattractive.

Expected Results

  • You will have an attractive nasal shape in better proportion to other facial features.

Procedure

  • The procedure is done on the outpatient basis under general anaesthesia.

  • It involves one external incision across the strut between the nostrils which is called columela.

  • The bones, cartilages, and soft tissues are then reshaped to improve nasal shape.

  • Nasal tip correction is done through a less extensive procedure(if only that is required).

  • Large nostrils are reduced through tiny incisions at the outer base of the nostrils.

Post Operation Care

  • You can go home with an external splint in place which is removed within one week.

  • The nose may be packed with surgical gauze/merocell dressing for 48 hours.

  • Oral medication takes care of the initial discomfort.

  • Swelling and bruising sunside within three to four weeks maximum.

  • External Stitches are removed within a week and internal stitches dissolve on their own.

  • Semi-final result is evident in 3-4 months.

  • The final result is evident around a year.
