Rhinoplasty or nose reshaping surgery, commonly called “nose job”, can improve the appearance and proportion of the nose to achieve a facial balance.
A rhinoplasty surgery can:
- Correct the width of the nasal bridge and/or align with the nostrils
- Smooth up a bump or straight up a depression of the nasal bridge
- Correct an enlarged, hooked or upturned nose tip
- Reduce the size of large nostrils
- Provide asymmetry to a deviated nasal bridge or nasal septum
This surgical procedure is designed to modify the shape of the nose and adjust its size to achieve facial beauty and harmony, leading to an increasing self confidence.A rhinoplasty is a very common facial cosmetic surgery, but rhinoplasty is also often performed to solve:
- Breathing problems due to a nasal obstruction or nasal deviation of the septum which can lead to health problems and poor quality of sleep
- Snoring problems due to milder problem nasal obstruction or nasal deviation but can be very problematic, especially for the partner
When there is a need for a functional nasal correction, the surgery will also aim to improve the aesthetic harmony of the nose. In many cases structural abnormalities and aesthetic issues have got the same cause. We offer rhinoplasty through traditional surgical procedure, but we can also propose a very innovative and non-invasive technique to fix the nose through the eyelid. This latter procedure, only available in Marbella, offers great results, minimal scaring, less complication and a faster recovery. To get a perfect, aesthetic and harmonious facial balance, it is sometimes recommended to combine rhinoplasty with chin surgery or cheek implants. The combined procedure is called perfiloplasty.
The procedure: The surgery is done under general anaesthesia and takes on average a couple of hours, but it can take as little as 1 hour and up to 4 hours depending on the complexity of the case. The incision is made either inside the nose (closed rhinoplasty) or across the columella which is the narrow strip of tissues that separate the nostrils (open rhinoplasty). The technique used can vary depending on the case. Through these incisions the surgeon can access the bone by gently raising the skin. Nose reshaping surgeries are most of the time “reduction rhinoplasty” cases, which are basically about making the nose look smaller. The surgeon will erode part of the bone and cartilage to reduce or reshape the appearance of the nose. However, there are also cases of “augmentation rhinoplasty”, which is about making the nose look bigger, at least in specific area of the nose. The augmentation procedure may require the grafting of bone of cartilage to achieve the desired shape. Once the desired nasal shape is achieved, the skin is folded back on its initial position, and stitched. A cast and tapes will be apply onto the nose to protect it and to maintain it in its position.
The recovery process: The patient will generally stay 1 night at the clinic post-surgery. The stitches and the cast are removed one week after surgery. Patients can return to their normal work activities after 2 weeks, however team sports should be avoided for an additional 2 weeks to avoid any shocks on the nose.
