Frequently Asked Questions About Rhinoplasty (Nose reshaping)

Nose job or cosmetic rhinoplasty is plastic surgery of the nose that involves, resizing, reconstruction or reshaping of the nose in order to either restore or enhance the beauty and the form or function of the nose. Rhinoplasty surgery works in the following ways:

  • Increase or decrease the length or width of the nose
  • Correcting the deformity formed in the nose tip of the bridge like a   drooping tip or visible humps and depressions on the bridge of the nose.
  • Work to reshape the nostrils.
  • Nasal block removal formed because of the septal deviation.
  • Correcting humps/ deviations or irregular dorsum
  • Correcting nasal asymmetry
  • Removing obstructions that cause troubles in airways or   breathing
  • Correction of birth defects

There are different types of rhinoplasty and they are:

Reduction rhinoplasty: This kind of rhinoplasty procedure is directed primarily at altering the nose scale, correcting nose width or bridge bumps, or adjusting the nose size and reforming it to match the rest of the face.

Augmentation Rhinoplasty: In this kind of rhinoplasty the dimensions of the nose are increased by adding grafts that act like structural material for both functional and aesthetic purposes.

Post Traumatic Rhinoplasty: From the name, we can understand that this procedure is aimed at dealing with correction of nose deformities that are formed as a result of a post-traumatic event. This can affect the symmetry of the nose and can cause the patient trouble in breathing.

Ethnic Rhinoplasty: Particular nasal characteristics are taken into account for a patient belonging to any particular ethnicity. In fact, all rhinoplasties are some of the other ways ethnic kinds of rhinoplasties as special attention is always given to maintaining the ethnic features of the face while making the correction of any kind of nasal deformities formed.

Anyone can think of getting their nose corrected since certain features are desirable in certain regions of the world and changing times. But below we have categorized some candidates who can specifically want a nose correction done:

  • If the candidate feels his or her nose is too long or short
  • The nose does not look compatible with the remaining features   of the face
  • The nose is crooked or shaped badly and looks out of alignment
  • The patient has nasal blockage inside the nose and will have       trouble in breathing
  • A birth defect that existed from long and needs rectification
  • Patient wanting to enhance the look of the nose to bring about   improvement in the overall appearance

If the general health of the patient is found to be good, then mostly a surgeon can consider the patient for the procedure.

Rhinoplasty surgery can be performed in an office-based surgical suite or in a free-standing ambulatory facility. The average time for the completion of Rhinoplasty can vary between one to three hours and can even take longer.

Medications will be administered to ensure the comfort of the patient during the procedure. General anesthesia is chosen during rhinoplasty, even local anesthesia or intravenous sedation can also be considered in certain cases. Various monitors will be employed to check the heart rate, pulse, blood pressure and oxygen amount that is circulating in the blood during the procedure. The surgical plan that was discussed with the patient will be most likely followed until unless hindered by some changes in the medical conditions of the patient.

The surgeon incision the bones and cartilage that help the nose after the area is covered. Two general incision techniques are usually used, they are open and endonasal. The external tissues within the nose are modified with the inclusion or removal of cartilage and bone, and the nose of the patient can be expanded or reduced, or decreased.

To remodel the tip of the nose, tip grafts that are made from cartilage can be used, giving it a more uplifted, longer, shorter or thinner look as may be desired. The skin and other soft tissues will get remodeled to give the desired shape to the underlying structures. In some patient’s tissue fillers or grafts of fat can be added for bringing about a volume increase in the desired regions of the nose.

Incision approaches can be of two types and they are the open approach and internal or endonasal approach.  Additional to incision options there are various methodologies for augmenting the nose to smoothen the deformities that exist on the surface.

Autologous cartilage grafts can be taken from the nasal septum (the wall that separates the nose and makes two separate air passages). This can provide the best chance for a natural result. If the bone and cartilage are removed already from the nasal septum then ear or rib cartilage and even bone from the skull are also considered as an alternative.

Strong silicone implants are still available for nasal surgery, yet they are foreign materials that can become contaminated or connect adversely with the nasal tissues and need to be removed. Therefore, surgeons often choose the supply of natural cartilage since this is an easy option. The grafts or fillers may also be used to smooth the nose fat. It can also be useful for camouflage in the desired areas, or for adding volumes.

In open rhinoplasty, the incisions are made outside the nose with access made in the form of a small incision on the underside of the nose; the region between the nostrils that will then finally connect with other incisions that are hidden inside the nose. The advantage of this method is that it allows the nose to be opened totally thus providing opportunities to visualize the nasal structure properly and gives a more direct route for manipulating it surgically. The small scar which is formed at the base of the nose will be hardly visible once the region heals.

For an endonasal rhinoplasty, the incisions are done in the interiors of the nasal passages. Since the incisions are hidden hence, they are always invisible after the surgery. In the endonasal approach, limited dissection of nasal tissues happen which aids in very good visualization of the nasal structures and it eliminates the scar formed at the base of the nose.

After the completion of the procedure, the patient will be taken into a recovery area where the patient will continue to be monitored closely. A splint will be placed outside the nose for the support of the new shape of the nose and aids in healing. Some nasal packing will be used inside the nose for providing additional support. The patient will be permitted to go home after being under observation for a short period of time and the plastic surgeon can have other plans for the immediate post-operative recovery of the patient.

When the patient is fearful of the thought of surgery, he or she can look for non-invasive treatment options, such as the use of dermal filler to apply to the facial features. This can prove to be an effective option. In such methods, the nose is reshaped by using hyaluronic acid fillers or fillers that are collagen stimulating that has the natural tendency to stimulate the production of collagen, a natural building substance found to be occurring in the human body for bringing about the desired shape.

The patient will be guided thoroughly with instructions before the surgery. A physical exam will be conducted to ascertain the fitness of the patient. The patient will be asked to stop smoking six weeks before the surgery to enhance the chances of healing. Medicines that are blood thinners will be advised to stop. Proper hydration is very important before and after surgery.

The surgeon tells the patient to go back to normal life. A nasal splint may be incorporated to take care of the nose from suffering any accidental bumps. A triangular bandage may appear below the tip of the nose. Many surgeons will put a small tube into each airway so that the patient can breathe freely while nasal packing is applied. Some amount of bruising and swelling is normal and cold compresses can be advised to help relieve the pain. For the first few days, the patient will be advised to keep their head in an elevated position. From a few days to a few weeks a doctor can advise the patient to limit their activities.

It is important to keep the follow-ups with the plastic surgeon periodically to allow her or him to note the progress or the outcomes of the surgery. At times extra growth can be detected that can bring the previous condition back and this can be prevented if the follow-ups are done on time and growing movement of the corrected region can be tracked on time.
The cost of rhinoplasty surgery in India can vary from $2800 to $3500 which is a much cheaper option compared to that in the USA and UK where these surgeries are mostly done. Judging by the skills and acumen of the plastic surgeons in India, the country is becoming a very popular destination for such cosmetic surgeries.
