Nose job

Nose job

Your nose is the central feature of your face; a small change to the shape and size can make a huge difference to your look. Nose jobs were originally developed as a corrective procedure for constricted breathing, but it can now be used to give you greater self-assurance in your appearance.

Nose jobs, also known as rhinoplasty, can be either “open” or “closed”. A closed rhinoplasty involves making incisions within the nose to reshape the bone and cartilage. An open rhinoplasty requires the incision be made on the skin between the nostrils, or the columella. This is a more complex procedure that makes more dramatic changes to the shape of the nose, and will be followed by at least one night’s stay in the hospital.

Whatever alterations you desire to the shape of your nose – thinner or thicker, higher or lower, longer or shorter – our doctors are the best source of advice as to the best procedure for you.

How to prepare for your nose job

The first step is to have a consultation with our doctor where you can convey exactly what you want out of your nose job. Your doctor will then give his recommendation that most closely matches your expectations. During this consultation, your fitness for surgery will also be evaluated. We will need to
know your medical history, including pre-existing conditions such as diabetes, heart and blood circulation issues.

You need to abstain from smoking and alcohol for at least 14 days before AND after the procedure. Certain medications, supplements and vitamins will also need to be avoided or regulated in the weeks leading up to surgery – your doctor will be able to advise you on these.

What happens during your nose job

The procedure will normally 1 to 2 hours, followed by a night’s stay in the hospital. You will be put under local or general anesthesia, depending on the procedure and your doctor’s recommendation. Either way, rest assured you will be pain-free throughout the surgery.

Recovering from your nose job

For the first few days after your surgery, you may feel some aching in your nose, swelling and puffiness in your face, periodic headaches, and black eyes. These can be alleviated with medication that your doctor will provide. You may also experience some bloody nasal discharge – this is normal and nothing to worry about. Be careful to try not to blow your nose for about a week.

Most of your bruises and swelling will have subsided in a week or two, and you’ll be able to go back to your normal routine. Just avoid strenuous activities such as heavy lifting and rough contact with your face for the next two weeks.

Possible complications

Although rhinoplasty is generally a safe procedure, some complications may still occur that you should be aware of. As with any surgical procedure, there is a minor risk of infection and bleeding.

For open rhinoplasties or narrowing of flared nostrils, there may be minor scarring on the underside of the nose. Post-surgery, tiny red spots may appear on the skin’s surface as a result of small burst blood vessels. While these are usually minor, there is a small chance that they may become permanent.

In rare cases, a second procedure may be required to address a deformity that was not corrected during the first surgery.
