Rhinoplasty – Nose Surgery
Breathe easy with a new, harmonious face
Rhinoplasty changes the shape of your nose. This is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures.
Nose surgery solves aesthetic and functional problems related to the nose, whether congenital or due to trauma. It is indicated both for harmonising your face or resolving possible nasal septum deviations hampering breathing through the nose (septoplasty).
Type of procedure
Major outpatient surgery.
From 7 - 10 days
A 1-2 hour procedure. On an outpatient basis . A plaster cast is used
Rhinoplasty will solve problems of nose size, width, volume, profile and nostril position. It can also correct breathing problems caused by a deviated septum.
Are you the ideal candidate?
If you are a man looking for to improve your nose's appearance or functionality, you are the ideal candidate. Rhinoplasty improves both your appearance and self confidence.
There are two ways of performing the surgery. The most common leaves no external scars, and is called closed rhinoplasty. We perform the operation by making incisions inside the nostrils. Through the inside of the nose, our surgeons lift the soft tissues that cover it to access its structure, then being able to reduce or increase it with cartilage grafted from other areas of the body, such as the ear or septum. Open rhinoplasty is carried out in more difficult cases, such as to correct major deformities. In these cases our surgeons directly access the structures of the nose with an incision through the columella. We always perform rhinoplasty in our operating rooms, and they usually last from 1 to 2 hours, although more complex cases may require more time. You will be hospitalised the night after surgery, being able to leave the facility the next day. The operation is normally performed under general anaesthesia, but it can also be carried out under local anaesthesia with sedation.
After surgery, especially during the first 24 hours, it is normal for the patient's face to be swollen and for him to experience discomfort around the nose and headaches. We will remove the nose plugs within 1 or 2 days, after which you should feel much better. After a week, or two at most, we will also remove the plaster and stitches, when applicable.
Back to normal
After 2 days you will feel better, and you'll be able to return to work or school in about 1 week. We strongly recommend that you not perform any strenuous activities (running, swimming, push-ups ...) during the 2 to 3 weeks following surgery. Take special care to protect the nose from any possible contact, and do not sunbathe for 8 weeks.
Your appearance will improve every day, and you'll be delighted. In 1 or 2 weeks there will be no adverse signs of the surgery, except for some minimal, almost imperceptible swelling on the tip of the nose. There are no scar-related problems because the incisions are made inside the nose. Even in cases of open rhinoplasty, the scar is almost invisible.
Every year we perform successful nose jobs. Patients can rely on our qualified plastic surgeons. However, as is the case with any surgery, there is always the possibility of complications. To minimise this risk, especially if you are a smoker, it is imperative that you carefully follow our plastic surgeons' instructions, both before and after surgery.
