  • Rhinoplasty


The nose is a central feature of the face, and it often determines one’s overall looks. An aesthetically pleasing nose has been considered to be a sign of beauty since ancient times. Unfortunately, not everyone has the good fortune to be born with a good-looking nose. 

Some people have noses that are misshapen, wide, bumpy, or deformed.  This not only affects their appearance but may also affect the functionality of their nose. In such cases, they can choose to undergo rhinoplasty surgery and reshape their nose to improve its functionality and appearance.

What Is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty surgery, more popularly known as “nose job,” is a surgical procedure that can change the appearance and the size of the nose. Rhinoplasty involves altering the skin, cartilage, and the bone of the nose either individually or altogether.

What Are The Different Types Of Rhinoplasty?

There are different types of rhinoplasty based on how the procedure is performed and why it is performed. Here are the different types of rhinoplasty surgery:

Based On Procedure:

  • Open Rhinoplasty:
    In open rhinoplasty, the surgeon makes the incision in the skin between the nostrils. This procedure leaves behind a very faint scar that fades away gradually.

  • Closed Rhinoplasty:
    In a closed rhinoplasty, the surgeon makes the incisions within the nostrils, and leaves behind minimal and mostly internal scarring.

Based On Purpose:

  • Rhinoplasty-Tip:
    In a rhinoplasty-tip procedure, the surgeon carefully removes cartilage from the tip of the nose to reshape it. This procedure has minimal scarring.

  • Nostril Alteration:
    In this procedure, the surgeon changes the size of the nostrils by making tiny incisions that leave behind minimal scarring that is hidden by the nostril crease. 

  • Septo-Rhinoplasty:
    A septoplasty is a procedure that is performed to repair a deviated septum. It is often combined with a rhinoplasty procedure to simultaneously improve the aesthetic appearance as well as the functionality of the nose.

What Are The Benefits Of Rhinoplasty?

A rhinoplasty can be done to address several nose-related issues, like:

What To Expect At The Consultation?

During the consultation, Dr. Vasant Gholave will discuss with the patient their reasons for choosing rhinoplasty and what changes they wish to make. He will carefully examine the nose and the overall facial structure of the patient. He will advise the patient on what type of rhinoplasty would be most suitable for them. 

Dr. Vasant Gholave believes that open communication between the patient and the surgeon is of the utmost importance. That is why he will explain the detailed procedure to the patient, including possible risks and the optimal result that can be expected from the procedure. He will answer all questions and doubts the patients may have and ensure that the patient has realistic expectations from the procedure. 

How To Prepare Before Rhinoplasty Surgery?

Before the procedure, Dr. Vasant Gholave will ask for the patient’s complete medical history to ensure that procedure goes smoothly and without any complications. He may also ask the patient to undergo some blood tests to check for any issues. 

The patient will also be asked to not eat anything for at least 6 hours before the surgery takes place.

How Is Rhinoplasty Performed At Arra Aesthetics?

Here are the steps involved in rhinoplasty surgery:

How Is The Recovery After Rhinoplasty Surgery?

After the procedure, a splint will be placed over the nose. The splint will be removed after a few days. If needed, packs will be placed inside the nostrils and ice packs will be put over the eyes to minimize swelling and bruises. 

The patient will be advised to rest for a few days to facilitate the healing process. The surgeon may also prescribe pain medications to alleviate any pain the patient may feel. 

The surgeon will give the patient instructions on taking care of the site like avoiding extreme vigorous exercise, avoiding extreme facial expressions, and taking baths instead of showers till the recovery process is complete. The patient must attend follow-up appointments with the surgeon so that the recovery process and the results can be monitored.

What Are The Risks Of Rhinoplasty Surgery?

Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure and like all surgical procedures, there are a few risks associated with it. They are:

These risks are rarely seen and at Arra Aesthetics we do our best to ensure the safety and satisfaction of our patients.

We were based in UK when I had severe burn on my right hand. I was undergoing burn dressing daily almost for 3 months there. But some portion of the wound didn't heal.In between treatment, we relocated to India and the wound was still not fully healed.While searching options on web for my wound healing, I came across the Arra Aesthetics and I came to know about the best laser treatment for wound healing. I consulted Dr. Vasant Gholave Plastic Surgeon in Pune for my non healing wound and post burn keloid of right hand at Arra Aesthetics. He explained the latest revolutionary Recosma LASER technology for wound and keloid. Although I was tense and worried about my wound, I decided to give it a try for this new laser therapy. To my surprise the wound healed completely by the end of 3rd session which was fron 10 days from my consulting session. The keloid scars have become soft and thin, also reducing in thickness after recosma laser.I am very happy and satisfied with my treatment.Dr. Vasant Gholave is highly experienced plastic surgeon. He is gentle and friendly. The clinic has advanced laser machines and the facility provided is very standard and cleanliness is maintained very much.I had wonderful experiences in Arra clinic . I highly recommend the clinic to people.

Initially, I was not sure about what exactly is required, Tummy Tuck or Liposuction. And if at all Liposuction, which technology shall I choose.He explained me everything in details, about options of non-surgical fat reduction VS Liposuction Surgery. He further explained me about different Liposuction Technologies, like Conventional Suction Assisted Liposuction, Vaser Liposuction, Laser Liposuction, Water Jet Liposuction, Power Assisted Liposuction.I chose Laser Lipolysis and underwent the procedure 2 months back.
