Introduction

What is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty or nose job is a surgical procedure that alters the nose’s size, shape, or proportions to enhance its appearance and functionality. This transformative intervention addresses nasal asymmetry and breathing difficulties, providing a comprehensive solution for individuals seeking to refine their nasal features.

Rhinoplasty Before and After

Recovery

How Long Does Rhinoplasty Take to Heal?

Nose job recovery unfolds in stages, with most patients experiencing initial healing within the first two weeks. Swelling and bruising gradually subside during this period. Then, external dressings are removed for an early glimpse of the reshaped nose.

While the majority of noticeable swelling resolves in the first few months, the final results emerge around the six-month mark and continue to refine over time. Adhering to postoperative care instructions and attending follow-up appointments optimises the long-term outcomes of rhinoplasty, contributing to enhanced facial aesthetics and improved self-confidence.

Available Procedures

Common Techniques for Rhinoplasty

    Open Rhinoplasty involves an external incision across the columella, allowing direct access to the nasal structures for extensive modification.Patients seeking major changes to nasal shape may benefit from this procedure to achieve aesthetic refinement. It is also sometimes recommended for individuals with prominent dorsal hump and deviated septum.
  • rhinoplasty icon
    Closed Rhinoplasty utilises incisions inside the nostrils, resulting in no visible external scarring and a quick recovery. It is often done by placing nasal implants via closed approach. Results can be quite dramatic despite only requiring a small incision.

    Augmentation Rhinoplasty enhances the nasal profile by adding volume, often achieved through grafts or implants. Patients desiring a more pronounced nasal tip or increased nasal bridge height suit this nose job technique.
