Nose Surgery/ Rhinoplasty 

Nose surgery, or rhinoplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that involves reshaping or reconstructing the nose to enhance its appearance or improve its function. Rhinoplasty can address various concerns, including nasal asymmetry, a prominent hump, a wide or bulbous tip, and issues with breathing or other functional issues.

Cosmetic Rhinoplasty:

  • Hump Reduction: If there is a visible hump on the nasal bridge, the surgeon can remove or reshape it.

  • Tip Refinement: Reshaping and refining the nasal tip can involve adjusting the cartilage and tissue to achieve a more balanced appearance.

  • Nasal Bridge Narrowing: The width of the nasal bridge can be narrowed for a more harmonious facial profile.

  • Nostril Reshaping: The size and shape of the nostrils can be altered, addressing concerns such as flaring or asymmetry.

Functional Rhinoplasty:

  • Septoplasty: Correction of a deviated septum to improve breathing.

  • Turbinectomy: Reduction of the turbinate's to enhance airflow.

  • Internal Valve Repair: Addressing issues with the internal nasal valves to improve breathing.


  • Incisions for rhinoplasty can be classified as open or closed.

    • Open Rhinoplasty: Involves an incision made across the columella (the strip of tissue between the nostrils), allowing the surgeon better access to the nasal structures.

    • Closed Rhinoplasty: Involves incisions made inside the nostrils, providing more limited access but leaving no visible external scars.


  • Recovery time can vary, but patients may experience swelling and bruising, particularly in the first week. It may take several weeks or even months for the final results to be apparent.

Individualized Approach:

  • A skilled surgeon tailors the procedure to the individual's unique facial features, considering both aesthetic goals and functional concerns.
