What is Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty, also known as nose job or nose surgery, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that involves reshaping or resizing the nose to improve its appearance or function. The procedure can be performed for aesthetic reasons, such as correcting a crooked or misshapen nose, or for medical reasons, such as correcting a deviated septum or repairing a nasal injury.

how it is performed

During the procedure, the surgeon will make incisions inside or outside of the nose to access the bone and cartilage. They may remove, reshape, or reposition these tissues to achieve the desired result. Once the reshaping is complete, the surgeon will close the incisions with sutures and apply a splint or cast to the nose to help it heal properly.

Why is the surgery done

Here are some of the most common reasons why someone may choose to undergo rhinoplasty:

  • Aesthetic reasons: Rhinoplasty can improve the appearance of the nose by correcting its shape, size, and proportion.
  • Breathing difficulties: Rhinoplasty can also be done to improve breathing by correcting structural abnormalities inside the nose, such as a deviated septum, enlarged turbinates, or collapsed nasal valves.
  • Nasal trauma: Rhinoplasty can also be done to correct a nasal injury, such as a broken nose, that has resulted in deformity or breathing difficulties.
  • Congenital defects: Rhinoplasty can also be done to correct a birth defect, such as a cleft palate, that affects the nose and nasal passages.

What to expect post surgery

Recovery from rhinoplasty typically involves swelling and bruising around the nose and eyes, as well as some discomfort and congestion. Patients will need to avoid Steneous activity up to 3 weeks and may need to wear the splint or cast for up to a week. Full recovery can can take up to 3 months. Additionally, patients should have realistic expectations for the outcome of the surgery and understand that the results may take time to fully develop.
