Nose plastic surgery is the reshaping of the bone, cartilage and the soft tissues of the nose. It is also a common procedure for those who want to change not just the size of their nose but also the shape – making narrower the span of the nostrils, the angle between the nose and the lip, or the tip of the bridge.
Nose reshaping surgery may also be performed as a solution for relieving breathing problems and correcting injuries or defects.
The nose reshaping procedure
Nose reshaping surgery involves the separation of the skin from the cartilage and bone, once these have been reshaped to the intended form, the skin is repositioned. Unlike other surgeries, nose reshaping is an internal procedure and rarely leaves visible scarring.
How long does it take?
A typical Rhinoplasty surgery takes approximately one to two hours and is most commonly performed on patients over 18 years of age. A nose reshaping surgery usually requires a one night stay in the hospital; however, there are some exceptions, where only minor corrections are required, for example, a minor nose tip surgery.
Nose reshaping surgery recovery period
In the first 24 hours after surgery your face will feel swollen and your nose may be painful, your surgeon will prescribe medication which will help control the pain. For the first 2 – 3 weeks you can expect to have bruising and puffiness around the eyes, of course the bruising and swelling eventually disappear.
Don't be surprised if there is a little bleeding for the first few days after surgery, this is quite common. During the first week of the healing period it is not advisable to blow your nose, this allows the tissues to heal.
You will also be asked to refrain from performing strenuous tasks and to avoid playing sport for 6 weeks. Frequent follow-up visits may also be recommended in order to check on the healing process and assess the success of the surgery.
Recovery time differs from patient to patient, while your surgeon may recommend for you to take a couple of weeks off work, many patients are active within a couple of days, and are able to get back to work after one week.
