Nose Rhinoplasty is relatively small structure that stands out from the centre of the face and is constatntly avaible for inspection by the patient and others. Even a millimetre of change can make a discernible difference in aesthetics of a person. In Rhinoplasty involves one or more of the following procedures done:
Elevation of depressed nose by adding cartilage, bone or implant.
Removal of hump.
Reduction of bulk of the tip.
Reshaping of nasal bones.
Elevation of tip of nose.
Reduction of size of nostrils.
The incisions are usually not visible as they are given from inside the nose & therefore no postoperative visible scars.
Rhinoplasty is performed on an outpatient basis under Local Anaesthesia. The patient wears an external splint on the nose for 5 - 7 days. After the splint is removed, the nose will be swollen for another 2 -3 weeks following which most patients can return to work and resume full activities
