General information about Rhinoplasty

The challenge for the plastic surgeon in rhinoplasty is that the nose not only has an aesthetic component, but also performs very important practical tasks such as cleaning and humidifying the breathing air. Because it also has different types of tissue such as cartilage, bone, connective tissue and muscles in a confined space and under an extremely thin layer of skin, rhinoplasty is one of the most challenging procedures in the plastic-aesthetic surgery.

The goal of a nose job is the harmonious adaptation of the nose to the proportions of the face. For this reason, plastic surgery places special emphasis on the individual anatomical conditions of the nose and surrounding visual field. This is also an important factor in keeping your nose unique to you after rhinoplasty.

For this reason, plastic surgery places special emphasis on the individual anatomical conditions of the nose and surrounding visual field. This is also an important factor in keeping your nose unique to you after rhinoplasty.

The first step is the advice the patient, so that the patient’s wishes can be communicated to the surgeon in an unadulterated way. In return the surgeon then can advise the patient. This is where often a necessary compromise between the feasible and desirable needs to be found.

Can I see what my post-surgical nose might look like?

For this purpose, three aids are often used in counselling:
1. Computer graphics that make it possible to get a picture of how you and your post-surgical nose might look like after the nose job.
2. Operation scheme
3. Extensive picture material from before / after examples, as well as possibly intraoperative image material.

What is the difference between an open and closed rhinoplasty?

If only the cartilage area needs to be treated, local anaesthesia is enough. If a correction in the bone area is necessary, the procedure is performed under general anaesthesia.

In most cases operative access is gained through the patients nostrils, leaving no visible scars on the skin (closed rhinoplasty). Only in severe cases it is necessary to gain operative access in a way that leaves barely visible scars (open rhinoplasty). Special instruments then allow the removal of the bony and cartilaginous parts of a nasal bump or the filling of a saddle nose.

How long does the rhinoplasty procedure take?

Some rhinoplastic surgeries are relatively straightforward and will be completed within one hour. More complicated surgeries naturally take longer. In average most rhinoplastic surgeries last two to three hours.

Does rhinoplasty hurt?

As with any surgery, nasal surgery can cause facial pain. However, these will turn off in the healing process. The pain varies, depending on type and procedure of the surgery.

Immediately after the operation, the entire nasal area swells, resulting in a nasal obstruction, which temporarily makes nasal breathing difficult. In some surgical procedures it may also be necessary to use tamponades to stop internal bleeding. Of course, these tamponades additionally restrict nasal breathing. Until the removal of the tamponades – usually after two days – the patient can breathe only through the mouth. However, the latest surgical methods make it possible to use silicone rails instead of tampons in many cases. These allow the inhalation and exhalation through the nose immediately after surgery and are removed as soon as the swelling has subsided.
