What is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is the most daunting cosmetic procedure as it is 3 dimensional and requires several levels of expertise.

Your nose is a prominent feature of your face and contributes to its unique character. If you are feeling self conscious about its shape or size, you may be thinking about a “nose job”.

Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic procedure to reshape the nose and enhance facial harmony. This usually can be achieved by reducing or increasing the size, removing a hump, changing the shape of the tip or bridge, narrowing the span of the nostrils, or changing the angle between the nose and upper lip.

Types of Rhinoplasty

A : Primary Rhinoplasty

“Are you A candidate”

Depending on the type of problem and the experience of your surgeon, Rhinoplasty is performed with different approaches.

-Closed nasal surgery

In closed Rhinoplasty, a few small incisions are made inside the nose in order to visualize the bone and cartilage. This method require more precision, experience and skill. As well, the recovery time of closed nose surgery is less. For surgery in this method, no incision is made in the outer part of the nose and all the necessary changes are made through the nostrils.

-Open Nasal surgery

In open Rhinoplasty, incisions are made in and out of the nostrils. In this case, the surgeon has more access to the structure of the nose and can easily shape the nose by shaving the bone and shaping the cartilage, however, a simple scar is left and surgical and healing times are longer.

-Partial Rhinoplasty:

Nasal tip surgery corrects the shape of the tip of the nose only. The width, size, or height of the tip of the nose can be reshaped, the bones of the upper nasal are left intact.

B : Non surgical Rhinoplasty

The nose is one of the body’s visible organs, making its aesthetics important. While many believe that Rhinoplasty requires surgery, there are non-surgical methods to enhance the nose’s appearance. By using injectable gel, one can alter the nose’s appearance without undergoing surgery. Notably, the patient remains awake and alert during the procedure, even holding a mirror to assist the doctor. This level of patient involvement enables direct input into the nose’s shaping. The results of a nonsurgical nose job become immediately apparent during the procedure. The final shape will be visible when one gel is injected and sculpted by the doctor.

In this method, you do not need much of a recovery. You can also resume your daily activities immediately after the injection is completed.

C : Revision Rhinoplasty

Revision Rhinoplasty is for a person who has had Rhinoplasty before and doesn’t have the result they had wished for. They may have problems such as breathing difficulty, olfactory disorder, deformity of the nose, etc.

Who is a good candidate?

You are a good candidate for Rhinoplasty if:

  • You have reached full facial development before (typically 14-16 years of age).
  • You would like a change to the aesthetic appearance of the nose.
  • You have a positive outlook, with a clear and realistic vision of what you want the procedure to do for you.

You are suitable candidate for Revision Rhinoplasty if:

  • • Minor procedures such as incision, resuturing, etc, are inadequate.
  • • You do not have another physical problem.
  • • You have realistic expectations.
  • • 6 months to one year has passed since the previous operation, and the desired nose shape has not been obtained.
  • • Respiratory problems were not resolved or caused by the first surgery.

Sometimes a Rhinoplasty is combined with a septoplasty, a procedure that opens up blocked nasal passages caused by a deviated septum.

The procedure

The procedure usually takes between 40 mins to 2 hours

In Rhinoplasty, most of the procedure is focused on the cartilage and bone. To get access, small incisions are usually made inside the nostrils and often also across the nose(Open Rhinoplasty).

If your nose needs to be augmented in an area, extra cartilage may be taken from your ear or deep inside your nose. Sometimes you may need an implant or bone grafting.

The procedure is performed under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation.

Recovery

After your surgery you need to wear a nasal splint over your nose for protection, your nostrils may be packed with soft packing or plug. These are removed the following day and splint within 7 days you may experience some pain, headache, inability to breathe through your nose and facial puffiness. You may need to keep your head elevated and relatively still for the first few days after surge. Most of the swelling will subside after the first two weeks and unnoticeable minor swelling will disappear within a year.

You can go back to work after a week or two and may resume most normal activities including exercise within two weeks. Do not blow your nose for at least 10 days. You should also avoid activities that could injure the nose or allow it to become sunburned. It is also important to realize that the final shape takes as much as 2 years time. Visits to your surgeon for injections, etc, will fasten and expedite your result.

Possible complications

Like any other surgical procedure, though infrequent, complications may occur and they include excessive loss of blood, infection, reaction to anesthesia medications.

Rhinoplasty FAQ

Fleshy noses can revert to their pre-operative state if inappropriate techniques are employed during rhinoplasty. However, contemporary rhinoplasty surgeons in Toronto employ standard and current techniques to perform fleshy nose surgery. This approach significantly reduces the likelihood of post-operative reversibility in fleshy noses.

Indeed, patients who have undergone rhinoplasty should adhere to specific guidelines in their daily activities to expedite the recovery process.

The likelihood of humps reappearing on bony noses after rhinoplasty is exceedingly low, approaching zero percent.

While lasers hold a prominent role in medical advancements, their current capabilities do not extend to performing rhinoplasty. It is important to note that lasers can effectively address scar tissue and skin discoloration on the nose.

Contrary to public perception, rhinoplasty is not an arduous or distressing procedure. The post-operative pain is manageable and can be alleviated with appropriate pain medication.

Undergoing rhinoplasty during menstruation is not inherently problematic. Nevertheless, it is advisable to schedule rhinoplasty for a period after menstruation.

The duration of the recovery period varies depending on individual patient factors but generally spans no more than one week.

The duration of nasal dressing applications varies according to the patient’s condition and the professional opinion of the nasal surgeon.

    I’ve been considering a nose job for a while, but I’m a bit nervous about the process. Could you provide more details on what to expect during the surgery and the recovery period? Additionally, how long does it typically take to see the final results? Thanks!

      Hi there!

      Thanks for your question! During a nose job, you’ll be under general anesthesia, and the procedure usually lasts 1-2 hours. Expect some swelling and bruising for the first two weeks, but you can generally resume normal activities after about a week. The final results will be visible in 6-12 months as the swelling goes down.

      We hope this helps, but please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any more questions or would like to schedule a consultation.
