Nose is such an elegant feature of our face standing tall with Pride…

Nose is one prominent central feature of the face, the nose can determine your overall look. A Rhinoplasty, also known as Nose Surgery or a Nose Job, is a surgical procedure that can address several of the most common nose related concerns including:
  • Reduction in size
  • Reduction in length
  • Removing or reducing a bridge hump
  • Adjusting nostril size and shape
  • Amending asymmetry
  • Reshaping the tip of the nose
  • Improving or alleviating breathing difficulties
  • Open Rhinoplasty: An incision is made across the skin between the nostrils leaving a very fine scar which gradually fades.
  • Closed Rhinoplasty: Involves tiny incision inside the nostrils leaving minimal and mostly internal scarring.
  • Septo-Rhinoplasty: This procedure straightens the nose to correct a deviated septum.
  • Rhinoplasty-Tip: The cartilage is removed to reduce the tip without visible scarring.
  • Nostril Alteration: It involves tiny incisions with minimal scarring which is hidden in the nostril crease.


Preoperative points to be discussed with your Surgeon:
  • Your reason for undergoing nose reshaping surgery.
  • The changes you are trying to make.
  • The results you would like to achieve – you need to maintain realistic expectations.
  • Activities to be discontinued prior to surgery including smoking and taking certain medications.

Preoperative preparations:

  • You will be asked to be ‘nil-by-mouth’ for up to six hours.
  • Your surgeon will prepare you for surgery – and may draw marks on the skin
  • Final consent will be obtained at this time by your surgeon.
The surgery itself will:
  • Be performed under general anesthesia.
  • Take around two to four hours.
  • Leave minimal scarring.
  • Requires an overnight stay in hospital.
  • A splint is placed over the bridge of your nose, possibly packs inside the nostrils and possibly ice packs over your eyes, to minimise bruising and swelling.
  • You may not be able to breathe through your nose for first 48 hours. Also drink plenty of fluids to help avoid a sore throat.
  • Painkillers will be offered; however the congested nasal feeling will mainly be the reason for the discomfort.

Postoperative surgery you might:

  • Experience some numbness, bruising and swelling which gradually fades up.
  • Have slight bleeding from your nostrils which can be dabbed away.
  • Need to rest in a semi-upright position for the first few days and avoid bending down.
  • Be required to come in to the clinic for a post operative appointment post surgery as per protocol.
