Nose job or rhinoplasty is a type of surgery used to change the shape of the nose. The goal of a nose job could be cosmetics, for example, to reduce the size of the nose in people with fleshy noses, to remove a nose’s hump, to make the nostrils smaller, or to change the nose’s angle with the upper lip. In addition, nose jobs have therapeutic purposes such as repairing a deviated septum, removing nasal polyps, alleviating a congenital disorder of the nose, or improving breathing problems.
How Is a Nose Job Performed?
This procedure is performed with general anesthesia. First, after the anesthesia has taken its effects, the surgeon makes an incision in the nose to access its bone and cartilage. The incisions are made in such a way as to avoid scarring as much as possible, which depends on the patient’s face and the surgeon’s opinion. Then, by removing some tissue, or by adding cartilage and bone, we shape it to the desired form. Cartilage and bone may either be taken from the patient’s body or made artificially. Finally, the surgeon returns the nose’s skin to its place, sutures the incisions, and then places a splint on the nose to maintain its shape. If need be, a nasal tampon (gauze filled with antiseptics) will be placed in the nose. The surgeon will remove the tampon after a few days. The nose should be taped until its shape stabilizes. Bruising and swelling around the eyes may occur during the first 10-14 days after the procedure. Rhinoplasty is an outpatient procedure, meaning that the patient can leave once they regain their consciousness in the recovery room. However, the doctor may sometimes decide that one night of hospitalization is necessary.
