What is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty, which is also known as “nose job”, is a surgical procedure aimed at altering the shape, size, or function of the nose. Rhinoplasty surgery is commonly performed, thousands of individuals opt for this procedure each year. Rhinoplasty is not being performed just for cosmetic purposes, but also serves functional purposes. This procedure also helps people who have breathing difficulties or other nasal issues.

How is a Nose Job Performed?
Rhinoplasty can be performed using either an open or closed approach. In the closed approach, incisions are made within the nostrils, leaving no visible external scars. On the other hand, the open approach involves an additional small incision across the columella, the strip of tissue between the nostrils. Surgeons who do this procedure generally choose the approach based on the complexity of the procedure and the desired outcome.

During the rhinoplasty surgery, the surgeon may reshape the nasal bones, cartilage, or tissue to achieve the desired aesthetic or functional result. Techniques such as removing excess tissue, restructuring the nasal framework, or adding implants or grafts may be employed. The procedure usually takes a few hours under general or local anesthesia, and patients may need to wear nasal splints or packs temporarily post-surgery to support the newly shaped nose.

What is Nasal Rhinoplasty? 

Nasal rhinoplasty is a specialized procedure that meticulously tailors its approach to refining the contours and functionality of your nose. By skillfully sculpting the nasal bones, cartilage, and tissue, this procedure caters to your unique aesthetic desires and functional needs.

For those seeking aesthetic refinement, nasal rhinoplasty adeptly addresses concerns like a pronounced dorsal hump, a rounded or bulbous tip, or any asymmetry that detracts from facial harmony. With meticulous attention to detail, the procedure ensures that your nasal contours are harmoniously sculpted to accentuate your natural beauty.

Beyond its cosmetic benefits, nasal rhinoplasty is adept at resolving functional impairments. Whether you suffer from nasal obstruction due to a deviated septum or narrow nasal passages, this procedure offers relief by restoring proper airflow and nasal function.

Through personalized consultation and precise surgical techniques, nasal rhinoplasty is tailored to your specific anatomical features and desired outcomes, ensuring a result that not only enhances your appearance but also improves your overall nasal function and well-being.

The goals of nasal rhinoplasty vary from patient to patient and are often tailored to meet their specific needs and desires. Surgeons work closely with patients during the pre-operative consultations to understand their goals and develop a customized surgical plan that addresses their concerns while maintaining harmony with their facial features.

Nose Augmentation

Nose augmentation, as the name suggests, involves augmenting or enhancing the size or shape of the nose. This procedure is typically sought by individuals who desire a more pronounced nasal bridge, increased nasal tip projection, or overall augmentation of nasal dimensions. Nose augmentation can be achieved using various techniques, including the use of implants, grafts, or filler injections.

Implants or grafts may be made from synthetic materials such as silicone or from natural tissues harvested from the patient's body, such as cartilage from the septum or ear. These implants or grafts are strategically placed to augment specific areas of the nose, enhancing its appearance while maintaining natural-looking results. Fillers, on the other hand, are temporary and non-surgical options that involve injecting substances such as hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxylapatite to add volume or reshape the nose.

Rhinoplasty, nasal rhinoplasty, and nose augmentation are all surgical procedures aimed at reshaping or enhancing the appearance and function of the nose. Whether it's correcting aesthetic imperfections, addressing functional issues, or achieving facial harmony, these procedures offer individuals the opportunity to achieve their desired nasal aesthetics and improve their overall quality of life. If you're considering any of these procedures, it's essential to consult with a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon to discuss your goals, expectations, and the most suitable treatment options for you.
