Rhinoplasty (Nose surgery)

General description

Rhinoplasty or nose surgery is one of the most common procedures in cosmetic plastic surgery. This technique can:

  • Reduce or increase the nose size.
  • Change the shape of tip or side.
  • Narrow the nostrils.
  • Change the angle between your nose and upper lip.

Rhinoplasty can improve your appearance and make you feel better about yourself. Before considering this surgery, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them with your physician.

Technical description
Procedure – When rhinoplasty is performed by a qualified surgeon, complications are few and minor. Nevertheless, like in any surgical procedure, there is the risk of complications such as infection, bleeding or reaction to anesthesia. You can reduce the risks to the minimum if you follow your doctor’s instructions both before and after surgery.

If rhinoplasty is performed through the nostrils, scars are not visible. Open rhinoplasty will leave a small, almost invisible scar at the base of the nose.  

For all types of cosmetic surgery, it is mandatory to keep the communication channels open between you and your physician; nose surgery is no exception. In your first consultation, the surgeon will ask you the changes you want to make and then will examine your face and discuss the real surgical possibilities for your case.

For your wellness, the rhinoplasty surgeon will tell you all factors that could affect the procedure and the results. Those factors are nostril and cartilage structure, the shape of your face, skin thickness and, above all, your expectations. The physician will also let you know the type of anesthesia used, location and cost. Anesthesia might be general or local, depending in the procedure or the surgeon’s choice.

Honesty with your physician is of extreme important. Let him know if you have previously had nose surgery, even though it was many years ago. It is important to let him know if you experience difficulties when breathing, if you have allergies, if you smoke or take vitamins or some medication.



Total cost will vary according to individual needs.
