Rhinoplasty

[Nose-Reshaping]

What

This is a procedure performed to address deformities of the nose such as

• Nose humps

• Deviation/asymmetry

• Poor definition

• Size

When

This procedure is performed when the patient sees the deformity as impairing function at any level-be it aesthetically, or functionally

Ideally the patient should be at least 16 years old for aesthetic concerns.

 

How

The procedure is performed in a well hidden scar under the nose-on the “columella” in most cases

It is performed with the patient asleep- and takes 1 ½ hours to 3 hours depending on what work needs to be performed

Patients may choose to stay overnight

 

Healing

Bruising, particular if any bony work has been performed,[under the eyes] will subside in 10 days.

Nasal swelling subsides from a week onwards.

•  Driving: 3-5 days

•  Back to work: 1-2 weeks

•  Exercise: 4 weeks
