What is Rhinoplasty


Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure to reconstruct and reshape the nose. Performed for both aesthetic and functional purposes, this surgery aims to improve the appearance and function of the nose.

Rhinoplasty involves reshaping the nasal bones, cartilage, and sometimes the skin layer. It is a popular cosmetic surgery among both women and men today.

Why is Rhinoplasty Performed?

Rhinoplasty is chosen for various aesthetic and functional reasons. The most common reasons include:

  • Injuries: Correcting nasal deformities caused by accidents or trauma.

  • Breathing Difficulties: Resolving breathing problems caused by structural abnormalities.

  • Congenital Defects: Correcting nasal defects present from birth or developed over time.

  • Aesthetic Appearance: Achieving a more aesthetically pleasing nose.

  • Improved Breathing: Enhancing nasal structure for easier breathing.

Rhinoplasty operations, done for these reasons, improve the functional and aesthetic aspects of the nose, thereby enhancing the quality of life. Each patient’s surgery plan is tailored according to their specific needs and expectations.

How is Rhinoplasty Performed?

Rhinoplasty involves reshaping the cartilage, bone, and sometimes the skin of the nose. Before the surgery, the surgeon examines the patient’s face and evaluates the nasal structure, facial features, and patient preferences. Based on these evaluations, a personalized surgical plan is created.

Rhinoplasty can be performed in two ways: Open Rhinoplasty and Closed Rhinoplasty.

  • Closed Rhinoplasty: All incisions are made inside the nose, leaving no visible scars.

  • Open Rhinoplasty: A small incision is made on the columella (the tissue between the nostrils) for better visibility and access to the nasal structure.

The surgery process includes:

  1. Anesthesia: Usually general anesthesia is used.

  2. Incision: Incisions are made based on the chosen method (open or closed).

  3. Reshaping: The nasal bone, cartilage, and, if necessary, the skin layer are reshaped.

  4. Closing the Incision: After surgery, incisions are closed and the nose is protected.

What Happens After Rhinoplasty?

Post-surgery care is crucial for a smooth recovery:

  • No Smoking: Smoking prolongs healing and increases the risk of infection. It is advised to quit smoking before and after surgery.

  • Internal Packing and Splints: Internal packing may remain for about a week. The surgeon may also place a splint to support and protect the nose.

  • Recovery Process: Swelling, bruising, and nasal congestion may occur but usually subside within a few weeks.

Here's Frequently Asked Questions About Rhinoplasty

What is rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a nose job, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that reshapes the nose to enhance its appearance and function. It can address issues such as size, shape, symmetry, and breathing problems.

What are the advantages of rhinoplasty?

Advantages include improved nose shape and symmetry, enhanced facial harmony, correction of breathing issues, increased self-confidence, and the ability to repair nasal deformities caused by injury or congenital conditions.

Will I feel any pain during the procedure?

During the procedure, general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation is used to ensure you do not feel any pain. Post-procedure, there may be some discomfort, swelling, and bruising, which can be managed with prescribed pain medications and proper post-operative care.

How long does a rhinoplasty procedure take?

A rhinoplasty procedure typically takes between 1.5 to 3 hours, depending on the complexity of the surgery and the specific techniques used by the surgeon.

How long do the results of rhinoplasty last?

The results of rhinoplasty are generally permanent. Once the swelling subsides and the nose heals, the new shape and structure will be long-lasting. However, aging and other factors can still affect the appearance over time.

What should I do after the treatment?

After the treatment, follow your surgeon’s post-care instructions, which may include keeping your head elevated, avoiding strenuous activities for several weeks, not blowing your nose, and attending follow-up appointments to monitor healing.

Does rhinoplasty provide natural-looking results?

Yes, when performed by an experienced surgeon, rhinoplasty can provide natural-looking results that enhance facial harmony and meet the patient’s aesthetic goals without appearing overdone or artificial.

How is rhinoplasty different from other nose procedures?

Rhinoplasty specifically aims to improve the nose’s appearance and function by reshaping the bone and cartilage. Other procedures, like septoplasty, focus on correcting a deviated septum to improve breathing but do not typically alter the nose’s external appearance.

Who is a good candidate for rhinoplasty?

Good candidates for rhinoplasty are individuals in good health, with realistic expectations, who are unhappy with the appearance of their nose or have functional issues such as breathing difficulties.

What is the cost of rhinoplasty?

The cost of rhinoplasty varies based on factors such as the complexity of the surgery and any additional costs like anesthesia and facility fees.
