If you are conscious of your nose size or shape and you find that it is affecting your daily life then a nose job might be something worth considering. Many patients find that they experience a considerable boost to their self-confidence but that is not the only benefit of surgery, other benefits include:
- Your facial harmony will be enhanced.
- Surgery can correct damage from an injury.
- Dorsal hump reduction to improve facial appearance.
- A reduction in the projection and prominence of your nose.
- An improved appearance and proportion of your nose.
A nose job is a very common plastic surgery procedure and it can allow you to either increase or decrease the size of the nose. The whole appearance of the nose can be changed and rhinoplasty can also correct breathing difficulties.
There are a variety of nose reshaping operations available and the exact procedure depends on the individual requirements of the patient. The operation is usually carried out under general anaesthetic.
The two main techniques used during a rhinoplasty procedure is ‘open’ or ‘closed’. An open procedure means that some or all of the cuts are made outside of the nose whereas closed means all of the incisions are carried out inside the nose.
A nose job will involve the separation of the soft tissue at the top of the nose from the bone and cartilage underneath. Depending on the individual procedure your surgeon may be required to break the nose to properly reposition or reshape the cartilage. The rhinoplasty operation will normally take around 2 hours and you will need to wear a protective splint over your nose for a few weeks. The stitches inside your nose will be dissolvable and will not need to be removed.
