What Is Rhinoplasty? 

A rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job or nose reshaping surgery, is a surgical procedure performed to reduce or eliminate a prominent bump or hump on the bridge of the nose, refine the tip, and correct a wide or flat bridge. It aims to create a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing nasal profile.

What Are the Benefits of Rhinoplasty?

Improved Breathing Functionality

Rhinoplasty can correct structural abnormalities in the nose, such as a deviated septum, which often impairs breathing. This adjustment not only improves airflow but also contributes to better overall respiratory health.

Enhanced Facial Harmony

Rhinoplasty helps achieve more balanced facial symmetry by reshaping the nose. This procedure can adjust the size, shape, or angle of the nose to better complement your natural facial features.

Correction of Birth Defects

This surgical procedure effectively corrects nasal birth defects and deformities. Patients experience a significant improvement in the appearance and functionality of their noses, which provides a lasting impact from childhood through adulthood.

Tailored Aesthetic Results

Rhinoplasty provides the opportunity for customization to meet individual aesthetic goals. Whether it’s reducing a nasal hump or refining the nasal tip, each procedure is uniquely tailored.

Improved Proportional Balance

Correcting disproportional nasal characteristics through rhinoplasty enhances the overall proportion and balance of the face. This benefit is particularly impactful for individuals whose nose is their dominant facial feature.

Minimal Scarring

Closed rhinoplasty involves incisions hidden inside the nose, leading to minimal visible scarring. This technique is ideal for patients concerned about the appearance of scars.

Quick Recovery Times

Advancements in rhinoplasty techniques have streamlined recovery, allowing patients to return to their daily routines more quickly. Post-operative discomfort is typically minimal and manageable.

Lasting Results

The results of a successful rhinoplasty are permanent, giving patients a lifelong enhancement of their nasal appearance and functionality. Once healed, the changes made during the surgery will last a lifetime.

What to Anticipate for Rhinoplasty


Your journey begins with an initial consultation with one of our skilled plastic surgeons. This comprehensive appointment allows you to discuss your concerns, goals, and any questions you may have regarding rhinoplasty. Our surgeon will conduct a thorough examination of your nose, review your medical history, and develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs.

Procedure Details

Once you have decided to proceed with the rhinoplasty, our team will guide you through the necessary preparations. Here are some key details regarding the procedure itself:

  1. Anesthesia: Rhinoplasty is typically performed under general anesthesia, ensuring your comfort throughout the procedure.
  2. Incisions: Our surgeon will make discreet incisions inside the nostrils or across the columella (the strip of tissue separating the nostrils), resulting in minimal visible scarring.
  3. Dorsal Hump Correction: The procedure involves carefully removing excess bone and cartilage to smooth out the dorsal hump, creating a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing nasal profile.
  4. Nasal Bridge Reshap: The procedure focuses on addressing a flat or wide nasal bridge along with refining the nasal tip. This may involve reshaping the bone and cartilage, adding grafts or implants, or adjusting the nasal structures to create a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing appearance.
  5. Tip Correction: The procedure involves reshaping and refining the nasal tip to achieve a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing appearance. This may involve adjusting the cartilage, removing excess tissue, or repositioning the nasal structures.
  6. Duration: The rhinoplasty procedure typically takes around two to three hours, though this may vary depending on the complexity of your case.

Recovery and Aftercare

After the procedure, we will provide you with detailed post-operative instructions to facilitate a smooth recovery process. Here are some essential points to keep in mind:

  1. Splint and Dressing: You will have a splint placed on your nose immediately after surgery to support and protect the newly reshaped nasal structures. Nasal packing, if necessary, will be removed in a few days.
  2. Swelling and Bruising: Some swelling, bruising, and discomfort are normal after the surgery. These can be managed with prescribed pain medication and cold compresses.
  3. Follow-up Appointments: We will schedule regular follow-up appointments to monitor your progress, remove the splint, and ensure that you are healing properly.
  4. Resuming Normal Activities: You may need to take about one week off from work or school to allow for proper healing. Avoid strenuous physical activities and contact sports for at least six weeks. Our compassionate team will be available throughout your recovery journey to address any concerns or questions you may have.

Frequently Asked Questions About Rhinoplasty

Will Rhinoplasty Affect My Sense of Smell?

Temporary changes in olfactory function are common post-rhinoplasty, primarily due to swelling. However, this is usually temporary; normal smell typically returns as the swelling subsides.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Rhinoplasty?

Candidates for rhinoplasty typically include individuals who:

  1. Have a prominent dorsal hump, wide or flat nasal bridge, or request tip reshaping.
  2. ​Desire a more balanced nasal profile.
  3. Are in good overall health.
  4. Have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the procedure; while rhinoplasty can significantly improve the appearance of the nose, it cannot completely alter one’s overall facial appearance.
  5. Are mentally and emotionally prepared for the surgical process and have a clear understanding of the potential risks and benefits.
