Aesthetic Rhinoplasty 

A beautiful nose is an important component to a harmonious face and blends into the background. Customised rhinoplasty techniques allow us today to sculpt your nose à la carte and in harmony with your face.

All surgery of the nose should be preceded by a functional rhinologic evaluation.

Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure with an aim to correct or reconstruct the nose. This may be needed to straighten the nose, reduce a hump, change the nasal tip or correct any dips or depressions on the bridge of the nose.

Minor abnormalities inside the nose causing twisting or blockage may also be corrected at the same time.

The aims of surgery are to improve the nose cosmetically, to maintain or improve function and to produce a result that has a natural, non-operated appearance.

Depending on the nasal anatomy, the rhinoplasty may be done either via an open or closed approach.

An open approach provides improved visualization of the underlying nasal framework and is a more direct route for surgical manipulation. The small scar left at the nose base is barely visible after the healing process.

In an endonasal rhinoplasty, also known as closed rhinoplasty, incisions are made inside the nasal passages. These incisions are hidden and are not visible after surgery. Endonasal rhinoplasty offers a limited view of and dissection of nasal tissues.

The rhinoplasty procedure is usually performed under general anaesthesia.

To plan a rhinoplasty we always use the VECTRA® 3D camera to produces three-dimensional photographs of the nose and face. This allows us to simulate a possible surgical outcome and it is an excellent communication tool between the patient and the surgeon.

Other areas of the face that directly influence facial balance and the aspect of the nose will also be addressed during the consultation (e.g. the anatomy of the chin, forehead and glabella). When indicated, some treatments e.g. a chin implant in a patient with a recessed chin, may be a powerful solution to improve your facial profile and overall facial aesthetics. See here

The nasal skin is crucial for the surgical outcome after rhinoplasty (especially in patients with thick skin, rosacea or acne). Some patients may benefit from a preoperative skin conditioning program. See here

What happens after the surgery?

A small cast/splint is applied to the nose for the first week post-surgery and most of the swelling is improved by the time the cast is removed. Within two weeks, the bruising and swelling will be greatly reduced and can be hidden under makeup. Significant improvement and an 80% reduction in swelling are apparent after six weeks, 90% within three months and 95% within six months. The final cosmetic result is achieved after 12 months when the skin has conformed to its new framework.
