Nose surgery corrects imperfections, for balanced proportions and improved function
Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure to reshape the nose, which includes changing the size, altering the profile or correcting any defects. This type of surgery can also narrow the span of the nostrils and relieve any breathing problems. Septorhinoplasty involves operating on the bones and cartilage to make the septum straight.
It’s important to discuss your expectations with your surgeon, in order to set clear goals ahead of time. The best candidates for rhinoplasty are in good physical and psychological health, and are realistic about what the procedure can achieve.
There are two possible approaches to surgery - when performed from inside the nose, only limited correction can be done. Open rhinoplasty can achieve greater and more predictable outcomes, however with this approach or narrowing of the nostrils small fine scars will be present.
In addition to temporary swelling, other problems may include bleeding, septal perforation and skin problems. These issues are typically rare, and we take a range of preventative measures to reduce any risks.
Initial results will be exciting but masked by some swelling and bruising. As the days and weeks progress your nose will begin to look even better, and it is important to remember that healing is a slow and gradual process - slight swelling might be present for months after the procedure.
Many patients take time to “bond” with their new look, but rest assured it’s totally normal - this stage will pass.
