Why Is Nose Job Required?

Rhinoplasty surgery in Pune ,India gets recommended to patients who need treatment to fix:

  • The nose size in accordance with their facial structure
  • The nose width at the bridge of their nostrils
  • Nose profile with visible humps or depressions on the nasal bridge
  • Enlarged, drooping, or hooked nasal tip
  • Large, wide, or upturned nostrils
  • Asymmetrical nasal structure
  • A deviated septum

What can I expect after a rhinoplasty procedure?

It is important to remember that human tissue does not behave in the same manner as an inanimate object such as a piece of stone or metal. So, it is unreasonable to expect it to conform to the exact shape requested after an invasive procedure. Thus the amount of scar tissue formed under the skin as well as the quality, thickness, and elasticity of the overlying skin of the nose all will have a major influence on the final aesthetic result.

To perform the rhinoplasty surgery, both you and your surgeon should remain on the same page. Discuss your surgery goals for a realistic expectation.

Frequently asked questions :

Will the shape of my nose after rhinoplasty be perfect?

The final result of a nose reshape operation will be affected by the following factors:
The contour and shape of the face
The texture and thickness of the skin
The inclination of the chin, lip and forehead
The depth of the angle between the forehead and the nose
The healing powers of the tissues

Previous airway obstruction may occasionally be made worse following a nose reshape operation. Severely deformed noses are very difficult to correct and there is always a limit to the amount of correction possible. Improvement and not perfection is the aim.

What care should be taken after the rhinoplasty procedure?

Normally, following a nose reshape operation, most patients go home on the same day. In rare cases, patients may need to spend one night at the clinic. Until the splint is removed you are advised to:

Rest as much as possible
Sleep upright
Sneeze through the mouth
Avoid blowing the nose
Most patients are delighted with the result of their nose reshape operation, which is generally very successful in experienced hands.

Will everyone notice afterwards that I've had a nose job?

It is extremely unlikely for anyone to spot that you have had an alteration to the shape of your nose.

If I don't like the result can anything further be done

It is always more difficult to achieve an excellent result with further surgery because the original anatomy of the nose has been altered and because scar tissue has been formed under the skin making it extremely difficult to predict how the nose will heal after a further procedure.

At what age can Rhinoplasty be done

Normally rhinoplasty is done after the age of 16 yrs.

When is rhinoplasty advised?

A nose reshape operation (rhinoplasty) usually takes about an hour to complete and is most commonly performed under local anesthesia and sedation. In rare cases the patient is administered a general anaesthetic. Local anaesthetic and adrenaline are injected under the skin and the inside of the nose is sprayed with a liquid which numbs the air passages as well as constricts the blood vessels to reduce intra-operative bleeding and post-operative bruising.

How To Prepare For Rhinoplasty?

A few weeks before the surgery, prepare your body for the new changes. A healthy body will take you towards a speedy recovery. During your visit to the surgeon, he might ask you to make the following lifestyle changes:

  • Avoid aspirin, ibuprofen, and other blood-thinning medicines
  • Avoid alcohol
  • Quit smoking
  • Add vitamin C, E, and Iron as your dietary supplements to promote healing
  • Inform your surgeon if you take any form of antibiotics, sleeping aids, or pain medications
  • Fill your kitchen with “soft” foods and liquid supplements before heading towards the clinic
  • In case you suffer any illness, ask your surgeon to postpone the surgery
  • After the surgery, you will need someone who can take you back home. Ask a friend or family member to drop you home post-surgery
  • After the surgery, you will need someone who can take you back home. Ask a friend or family member to drop you home post-surgery
How much time does it take to recover from the surgery completely?

Your doctor will ask you to wear a nasal splint for the first 7-10 days after the surgery. Mild to moderate swelling or bruising is expected after the surgery, which might last for two to three weeks. Avoid strenuous activity for up to four weeks after the surgery. Your doctor will guide you with the necessary do and don’ts for a speedy recovery.

Rhinoplasty improves the proportion of your nose and enhances facial harmony. Depending on the patient’s need to improvise their nose, rhinoplasty includes the following procedures:

  1. Anaesthesia: Our rhinoplasty surgeon in Pune incorporates medications for your comfort during the surgical procedures. Depending on the case, your doctor might suggest intravenous sedation or general anesthesia.
  2. Surgical Incision: Rhinoplasty can either be performed using a closed procedure, where the incisions are hidden inside the nose or an open procedure, where an incision is made around the columella – a narrow strip of tissue that separates the nostrils. The incision is gently made to raise the skin that covers your nasal bones and cartilage to reshape the structure of your nose.
  3. Nose Reshaping: A large nose can be reshaped and reduced by removing the bones and cartilage. Also, people choosing nose surgery to increase the size of their nose, your surgeon can add cartilage grafts to give your nose a fuller look. Commonly, the cartilage from the septum (the partition in the middle of your nose) is chosen for the procedure. However, the ear cartilage or a section of rib cartilage can also be used for nose reshaping procedure.
  4. Correction of deviated septum: In case the patient has a deviated septum, it can be straightened, and the projections inside the nose can be reduced or added to improve your breathing.
  5. Closing the incision: After the underlying structure has been sculpted in the desired shape, your surgeon will redrape the nasal skin and tissue and close the incision.
The Two Main Approaches

The Closed Technique

An incision is made inside the nostrils on each side and the skin covering the nose is lifted from the supporting framework of the nose

The nasal contour is changed by removing, shifting or altering the underlying bony and cartilaginous structures. The incisions are stitched and the nose is packed with sterile gauze. A splint is placed on the nose and secured in position with tape.

The Open Technique

An incision is made across the part of the nose between the two nostrils which is called the columella. The part of the columella in front of the incision is lifted forwards and the skin is dissected off the nose to expose the internal anatomy.

The nasal contour is changed by removing, shifting or altering the underlying bony and cartilaginous structures. When the alteration of the deeper structures is completed the incisions are stitched and the nose is packed with sterile gauze. A splint is placed on the nose and secured in position with adhesive tape.

When the size of the nose or the shape needs to be enhanced or enlarged then surgeons perform what is known as Augmentation Rhinoplasty. Augmentation provides an asthetic look to the nose and is most commonly used to increase the tip of the nose. Materials used for augmentation may include alloplasts (synthetic implants), allogenous materials, or autologous implants (grown from the patient’s own tissue).
