What Is Nose Reshaping?
Nose reshaping surgery is a delicate, complex procedure to change the shape and/or size of the nose. Often patients feel the size of their nose is disproportioned with their facial features.
Surgery is a common option to modify the size, shape and overall appearance of the nose. There are four main ways to reshape a nose and it is important to have a clear idea of which part of the nose you wish to have altered:
- Rhinotip – this involves the tip of the nose, which is made up of soft cartilage and usually needs reducing in size.
- Rhinoplasty – this deals with the bridge of the nose and profile. The procedure can make the nose larger or smaller; change the angle of the nose in relation to the upper lip; alter the tip of the nose; or correct bumps, indentations, or other defects in the nose.
- Septorhinoplasty – this involves altering the septum, often performed on a broken nose or on people with breathing problems.
- Rhinoplasty reconstruction – ideal for fixing the damage caused by traumatic accidents, where the nose needs rebuilding, or when the nose has a growth or deformity. Ear cartilage is often used to build the nose back up.
It is not uncommon for some patients to have a combination of these operations. As always all options and procedures will be discussed with you during consultation.
It is also possible that a non-surgical option can be undertaken to reshape the nose, with fillers administered to elevate depressions in the nose. Results however are not permanent, typically we see results of filler injections lasting for 6 – 18 months.*
What Can I Expect?
Each operation inevitably has it’s own considerations in terms of both operation length and the anaesthetic used, as well as postoperative treatment and recovery.
Rhinotip is performed as a day-case procedure and, in most cases, under local anaesthetic. Whereas full Rhinoplasty or Septorhinoplasty are performed under general anaesthetic and involve an overnight stay in hospital. Reducing flared nostrils can be done at the same time as any of the above.
For all procedures a small plaster cast is positioned over the nose and left on for 7 -10 days. It can take up to a year before the final result is achieved.*
