Nose surgery/Rhinoplasty

Path to Harmony

Rhinoplasty

The nose plays a crucial role in facial harmony and proportions. Discrepancies in size, shape, or symmetry of the nose can significantly impact self-confidence and the overall impression of the face. Variations such as disproportionately large nose, deviation, overly wide nostrils, prominent hump, drooping tip, or asymmetry are often reasons for aesthetic correction.

Minimal surgical interventions can greatly enhance facial aesthetics, making it more harmonious and giving it subtle, natural beauty. There are several approaches to nose correction, including tip refinement, septoplasty, and rhinoseptoplasty. These procedures allow for tip refinement, length adjustment, nostril narrowing, and removal of unwanted humps at the nasal bridge.

Why choose Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, is not only about improving the aesthetic appearance of the nose but also addressing functional issues such as breathing difficulties. Whether it’s a deviated septum, irregularities caused by injuries, or simply a desire for aesthetic correction, rhinoplasty offers a solution.

Correction of the nasal tip

Surgery of the nasal tip involves modifying cartilage to improve both function and appearance of the nose. This technique can shorten, lengthen, correct deviation, or narrow the width of the tip. Whether using a closed or open approach depends on the goals of the surgery. The procedure, lasting 2-4 hours, results in a refined and harmonious nasal profile.

Septoplasty

Septoplasty

The goal of septoplasty is to correct a deviated nasal septum that causes difficulty breathing, frequent nosebleeds, sinus infections, and sleep disturbances. The surgery involves reshaping the nasal septum to improve airflow. It typically takes 30-60 minutes, and patients are usually discharged the same day.

Rhinoseptoplasty

Rhinoseptoplasty combines aesthetic nose correction with functional septoplasty in one procedure, addressing both physical and aesthetic concerns. Techniques include closed and open methods to achieve desired appearance and function. The procedure, lasting 2-3 hours, can dramatically change the nose’s appearance and improve breathing.

Preparation and Procedure

Preparation for nose surgery

Complete preparation for nose surgery is done with us and is included in the price.

  • It includes laboratory tests: complete blood count, basic biochemical tests with coagulation factors, blood type and Rh factor.
  • Internal medicine and cardiology examination with ECG.
  • Clinical examination by an anesthesiologist.

If you smoke, it is necessary to quit smoking for several weeks before and after surgery because smoking negatively affects circulation and the wound healing process, thus prolonging recovery time.

You will need to stop taking aspirin and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen as they increase bleeding. At the same time, you will need to start taking anticoagulants to prevent blood clots.

Nose surgery procedure

Nose surgery is performed under general anesthesia, and the method depends on the specific needs and desires of the patient. Whether it’s correcting the nasal tip, septoplasty, or rhinoseptoplasty, our team uses the latest techniques to achieve the desired appearance and functionality.

Recovery after nose surgery?

After surgery, patients are given pain medication. In the first two to four days, they may experience swelling and bruising around the eyes and face, which typically subsides within about two weeks. It is recommended to use cold compresses, breathe through the mouth, and sleep with the head elevated on pillows. Showering with lukewarm water is not advised in the first week to prevent dislodging nasal packing and the compression mask. During the first month, avoid blowing your nose, strenuous physical activities, wearing clothing that goes over the head, and wearing glasses. Consume soft foods, brush your teeth, and rinse your mouth after each meal.

Risks after nose surgery

As with any surgery, there are risks of allergic reactions to anesthesia, bleeding, and infection, but these are minimized when performed in a completely sterile operating room and conducted strictly according to protocol by an experienced surgeon.
