Everything you need to know about Rhinoplasty

What is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty, is a surgery to change the size or shape of the nose, or change the angle between the nose and top lip. It is also referred to as nose reshaping or nose job.

Why do people have Rhinoplasty?

There are many reasons people choose to have rhinoplasty: to change the shape, size or angle of the nose, to correct structural problems that are causing breathing problems, or to improve self-image and self-confidence.

Am I a good candidate?

If you believe your nose is too small or too large for your face, or you have a nasal blockage that is causing breathing problems, then you may want to consider rhinoplasty. However, it is very important that you are in good health, have a positive attitude and realistic expectations, before undergoing this procedure.

What are my options?

After numbing the area, incision is made to access, and add or remove the bones and cartilage that support the nose. There are two general techniques for making the incisions: open and endonasal.

For an open rhinoplasty, the incisions are made outside the nose with a small access incision on the underside, providing better visualization of the nasal structures and a more direct route for surgical manipulation.

For an endonasal rhinoplasty, the incisions are made inside the nasal passages, providing more limited dissection of nasal tissues and eliminating the visible scarring.

What should I look out for?

All surgical procedures have some degree of risk. Fortunately, significant complications from a rhinoplasty are infrequent.

Other risks specific to rhinoplasty are outlined below:

  • Scarring
  • Reduced sense of smell
  • Damage in the septum
  • Breathing difficulties.
