How is rhinoplasty done?

Nose reshaping (rhinoplasty) FAQ

The procedure can be performed in two ways: as so-called “closed” or “open” rhinoplasty. The only visible difference between these two types of procedures is the small inconspicuous incision placed on the skin under the nostrils. Otherwise all the incisions are placed intranasally (inside of the nose) and do not leave any noticeable scars. After the soft tissues of the nose and the skin are separated from the underlying framework, the cartilage and the bone that are causing external deformity are altered and reshaped. The procedure takes usually about 1.5 hours and is performed under anesthesia and on outpatient basis.

Can my breathing be improved during the rhinoplasty procedure?

Typically, cosmetic rhinoplasty or nose reshaping is meant to achieve external changes to the nose which may or may not have any effect on the nasal airway. In the same setting, however, procedures can be performed to improve the function of the nose, if impaired. Septal surgery (septoplasty) or nasal valve surgery (either internal or external) can significantly improve the nasal airway and provide additional structural support after cosmetic rhinoplasty. They are typically covered by health insurance (if available), as opposed to the cosmetic component of the operation. These two procedures, cosmetic and functional, are often combined together.

What is a typical recovery?

After the nasal surgery a dorsal splint (nasal cast) is applied. It is removedwithin a week. The swelling is mostly gone at this time but some bruises may stay for another week. At this point however, they can be covered easily, if necessary, by camouflage make-up. Pain is usually very minor and well controlled by oral medications. There will be some swelling and stuffiness for several weeks, but patients usually resume their activities after a week.
