What is Rhinoplasty or nose surgery?

Rhinoplasty or nose surgery is one of the most popular and effective methods of cosmetic surgery in which age doesn’t matter. The nose is one of the most important components of the face that has a direct impact on a person’s beauty and attractiveness. A well-shaped nose has a positive effect on the face but is not quite visible. On the other hand, a badly shaped and disproportionate nose attracts attention!

Rhinoplasty is a way to have a more shapely nose.

Rhinoplasty or nose surgery has gained a lot of fans in Toronto, especially in recent years. Generally, in rhinoplasty, the skin of the nose and the tissue beneath it is removed with the help of a few small incisions to cut and repair the bone and cartilage of the nose. Then the skin returns to its place so that over time, the nose reaches its desired shape. There are different types of rhinoplasty, depending on many factors that we will review them all.

Now the question arises that before performing rhinoplasty, what points should be considered to be most satisfied with the result of the surgery? Which surgical procedure is suitable for each person’s rhinoplasty? and by what criteria does the surgeon determine the appropriate shape of your nose? You may be interested to know that facial beauty is also a science and has its principles. Join us in this article to review some key points about a standard and satisfying rhinoplasty:

Rhinoplasty or nose surgery is generally performed to correct the appearance or function of the nose, as well as to improve some respiratory problems. If you perform this operation by a surgeon with a valid certificate and expertise in the field of cosmetic surgery, its complications will be minimized by eliminating the defects.

 Also, rhinoplasty has a profound effect on the beauty of a person’s face by removing the hump of the nose, raising its tip proportionally, and improving the condition of the nostrils. Due to these effects, this type of surgery and the changes made with well-performed operations, presented with photos of the operated noses, has resulted in an increased desire for this surgery day by day. In the following, we will acquaint you with the process of performing this cosmetic procedure. It should be noted that rhinoplasty includes various considerations regarding fleshy nose surgery, bony nose surgery, and fancy nose surgery.

 Types of Rhinoplasty 

Many people want to make their faces more beautiful with rhinoplasty, but many problems and concerns overwhelm them: 

  • The difficulties of the recovery period after rhinoplasty
  • Choosing a skilled and reliable surgeon
  • Diagnosing how to operate on them.
  • Being ensured that the nose will be in proper shape after surgery.

In the first step, the question is how to find the best rhinoplasty surgeon – or at least a good one. Need to say that all Head & Neck Plastic Surgeons and the majority of ENT surgeons are well trained as good rhinoplasty surgeons in Toronto. It should then be noted that making the best change with rhinoplasty depends on several other criteria besides the surgeon’s skill and ability, including:

  • Skin type and its flexibility
  • The flesh or bone of the nose
  • Structural problems such as deviation in the nasal septum or asymmetry in the holes (nostrils)
  • The degree of balance and fit of the nose with other parts of the face
  • A person’s mental image of his face and his expectation of the impact of rhinoplasty on facial beauty

Despite all this, the plastic and cosmetic surgeon can determine what kind of nose surgery and how much change is needed.

He/she can do it after a thorough examination of the nose and other elements of the face, consult and talk to the person, as well as performing a series of tests and measurements. Then the best nasal surgery method that is suitable for the person is selected.

In general, the purpose of cosmetic nose surgery is to correct the size and shape of the nose according to other elements of the face. Also, eliminating nasal defects and maintaining its positive points can lead to a successful nose surgery with the least pain and difficulty. Also, paying attention to the passage of air and observing the principles of surgery that do not cause problems in your breathing or even solve your breathing problems, is another goal of rhinoplasty.

It should be noted that achieving a standard shape and size is based on aesthetic criteria. It means that your surgeon is trying to match the final size of your nose and its angles to other parts of the face and the distances available. Aesthetic criteria will make your nose and face more beautiful in the public eye.



Types of rhinoplasty procedures

Depending on the type of problem, rhinoplasty is performed in several general ways:

Closed nose surgery:

In closed rhinoplasty, only a few small incisions are made in the nostrils to remove the skin from the bone and cartilage. The surgeon does not have enough vision in this method and his access to different parts of the nasal structure is limited. Doing this method requires more precision and skill and is mostly used to make more detailed and limited changes. On the other hand, the recovery time of closed nose surgery is less. Also, the wound is not visible after surgery. 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 and the inner parts. Because in this method, the surgeon does not have a direct vision to operate, he must have a lot of skill to apply the changes desired by the patient.

Advantages of closed nasal surgery:

  • Short surgical time
  • Less swelling after surgery
  • Shorter recovery period
  • Better blood circulation

In the second stage of rhinoplasty, the type of anesthesia needed to perform the rhinoplasty is determined. Which anesthesia method is used for you depends on your doctor’s opinion and your physical condition.

In the third stage of nasal surgery, one of the mentioned methods (open and closed) is used to perform nasal surgery.

In the fourth stage of the nose operation, when the desired shape is given to the nose, it is time to plaster it. Normally, all people should have their nose plastered for 2 weeks after this surgery to allow the skin and cartilage to heal.

Open nose surgery:

In open rhinoplasty, incisions are made in and out of the nostrils and middle blade to remove the skin from the bone. In this case, the surgeon has more access to the structure of the nose and can more easily shape the nose by shaving the bone and shaping the cartilage. As the name implies, for open nasal surgery, an incision is made between two nostrils to separate them. In this case, the skin is removed from the complete cartilage of the nose and gives a better view to the surgeon to perform this surgery.

Advantages of open nasal surgery:

  • View cartilage directly
  • Nose reshaping with more control and precision



Septoplasty, or surgery for the middle septum of the nose, is a procedure to correct the deviation of the septum or wall between the two nostrils. Tilt or deviation of the septum may cause problems and defects such as asymmetry in the nostrils, tilt of the tip of the nose, breathing problems and bloating, sinus problems, nosebleeds, and so on.

Nose tip surgery

Nose tip surgery:

Nose tip surgery corrects the shape of the tip of the nose. In this method, by correcting the cartilage of the tip of the nose, the width, size, or height of the tip of the nose can be reshaped, as well as its deviation. The plastic tip can also be useful for those who have a small nasal arch. 

Nasal hump surgery without anesthesia

Nasal hump surgery without anesthesia:

This procedure is also known as rhinoplasty without surgery. There is no need for anesthesia to correct the hump above the nose. With just local anesthesia and splitting of the top of the nose, the bone is shaved to remove the hump and bulge on the nose.

  The appearance of a bony nose is that they are curved or have a hump on the bridge of the nose. Bony noses are among the most ideal noses for cosmetic rhinoplasty because they have thin skin and less resistant tissue and cartilage.

fleshy nose surgery

fleshy nose surgery

 Fleshy nose surgery:

The fleshy nose known by different names like the meaty nose, or African nose is broad and thick at the tip of the nose. 

Fleshy nose surgery is one of the most complex rhinoplasty surgeries and the requirement for successful fleshy nose surgery is to see an experienced nasal surgeon to perform the nose operation by strengthening the weak tissue and cartilage.

Reconstructive nose surgery

Reconstructive nose surgery:

If the defects of the nose have not been resolved in the initial nasal surgery or a new defect has been created as a result of improper removal of nasal tissue, reconstructive nasal surgery will be performed.

The best time to have reconstructive surgery and the best nose job is after one year when the wounds from the initial nose operation have healed or stabilized.

Touching the nose earlier than the nasal surgeon determines will cause even irreversible complications, especially on the skin of the nose.

Natural Rhinoplasty

Natural Rhinoplasty:

You may be one of those people who have applied for a “natural shape” nose surgery and just want the nose problem to go away and do not expect a significant change in the shape of the nose.

Natural nose surgery is performed for people with fleshy noses and men.

Fantasy Rhinoplasty

Fantasy Rhinoplasty

Fantasy Rhinoplasty:

Barbie nose surgery is performed to have a small nose, high tip, and more arch.

Successful fantasy rhinoplasty requires the nose to have strong tissue and cartilage and thin skin, as well as small, doll-like facial features.


What to do before and after the Rhinoplasty:

After having a plastic nose job, you should rest in bed with your head above your chest to reduce bleeding and swelling.

The surgeon may also give you a nasal splint, which is a type of plastic mold, to protect your nose. You usually have to endure for about a week. You may feel stuffy in your nose because of the swelling or splints they put inside your nose during surgery. In most cases, internal dressings should remain in place for one to seven days after surgery.

Some bleeding and discharge of old mucus and blood are normal for a few days after the operation or after removing the dressings. 

Your surgeon may insert a nose pad. The pad is a small piece of gauze that is meant to absorb the discharge. You should change this gauze according to your doctor’s instructions and make sure that you don’t insert it too tightly into your nose.

To reduce the chance of bleeding and swelling, and to minimize the complications of your nose job, your surgeon may recommend that you do the following in the weeks after surgery:

  • Avoid strenuous activities such as aerobics and running, and generally severe exercise.
  • When you have a bandage on your nose, take a bath but not a shower.
  • Do not blow your nose
  • Eat high-fiber foods such as fruits and vegetables to avoid constipation that causes you to strain and put pressure on the surgical site.
  • Avoid expressing strong emotions with your face, such as smiling or laughing.
  • Brush your teeth gently so that your upper lip moves less.
  • Wear clothes that can be closed to the front. So you do not have to put on or take off your clothes from your head.
  • Do not wear sunglasses or prescription glasses on your nose for at least four weeks after surgery, as they can put pressure on your nose. Instead, you can use glasses that do not rest on the bridge of the nose. Or you can even attach your glasses to the forehead with a piece of tape.

You may experience swelling or temporary discoloration of the eyelid two to three weeks after rhinoplasty. But the swelling of the nose itself takes a while to sleep. To get rid of your swelling sooner, it is better to reduce your sodium (salt) intake.

Be sure to follow the advice of the plastic surgeon. And, before acting, be sure to pay attention to these points:

  • Quit smoking a few weeks before surgery.
  • Discontinue anticoagulants such as aspirin a few days before rhinoplasty.
  • Take a bath the night before the operation.
  • Don’t eat any meals on the morning of surgery.
  • Wear clothes that do not need to be worn after surgery. The buttoned shirt is more appropriate.
  • After the nose job, you should do your best not to put any pressure on the nose; Do not make any contact with the nose, and do not remove the bandage and adhesive from the nose. 

In general, you should do the following to get the best results from your surgery:

Pain, swelling, and bruising on the face and around the eyes are completely normal. Do not worry; they will go away over time.

If you have temporary bleeding, do not worry and cover your nostrils with sterile gauze.

The oily dressing inside the nose is removed after 3 days.

The splint on the nose is also removed after 7 to 10 days.

Keep your head up for two weeks. Even when sleeping, put a few pillows under your head.

Eat more liquid foods for up to two weeks; Avoid biting and opening your mouth too much. Also, do not use a straw to drink at all.

The bruising and swelling slowly go away in two weeks. You can use a cold compress for the first three days and then a warm compress.

Do not blow your nose for 3 to 4 weeks, sneeze with your mouth open, and avoid any strenuous exercise or physical activity.

Eat lots of fruits and vegetables, especially pineapple (not compote).

Learn how to sniff your nose properly and practice it carefully.
