Thank You! for your valuable time.


Rhinoplasty Surgery is also known as Nose Job. This is the most frequently performed surgery to change the shape of your nose by adjusting the bone or cartilage. The changes may be done in terms of size, angle, straightening of the bridge, reshaping of the tip, narrowing of the nostrils etc. You can plan a Nose Job Surgery for the aesthetic reason and to enhance your look. However, this surgery can also be performed if you are facing any breathing problems.

Are You a Candidate?

You may consider rhinoplasty surgery for you, if:

  • If your age is 14 (for girls) and 16 for boys.
  • If you want to improve the shape, size or look of your nose.
  • If you have realistic expectations from surgery
  • If you are facing any medical issues (breathing related)
  • If you wish to remove your nose hump


Initially, expert surgeon will try to understand your concerns behind going ahead with rhinoplasty and discuss the plan for surgery accordingly.

Secondly, your pre-investigations will be done to make sure that you are physically fit for nose surgery. Depending upon your requirements and on the basis of physical assessment, rhinoplasty can be performed through one of the following techniques:

There are two different techniques of rhinoplasty surgery:

  • Closed Rhinoplasty:
    During closed surgery, the surgeon will make incisions to access the cartilage and bones which is giving support to nose. These incisions are made inside the nose so that they are not visible after the surgery. As per patient’s requirement, some cartilage or bone may be removed or some tissues may be added. The tissues may be from another part of the body or they can be synthetic filler. After the complete procedure, once surgeon has reshaped and rearranged the cartilage and bone, the tissue and skin is covered over the structure of the nose. A bandage is positioned outside the nose to give support to new shape of the nose until it heals.
  • Open Rhinoplasty:
    Open rhinoplasty is also known as External Rhinoplasty, in this techniques surgeon will make small incision on the columella, which is the soft tissue that separated the nostrils. The surgery will be done under general anaesthesia. This technique helps to get easy access to the underlying cartilage and bone structure. Surgeon may also use this technique if the patient’s nose is crooked or to achieve a marked reduction in nasal tip projection (how far the tip sticks out from the face). The scar left behind is barely visible and will usually fade with time.

    The procedures are usually done on day care basis but sometimes requires night stay in hospital.

Expected Results

The results will be very good if you have realistic expectations. After surgery, it will take around 6 months or more to see the expected results. A Rhinoplasty surgery will improve your look. The symmetry, shape and size of nose will be improved. Breathing problems and certain birth defects will be resolved.

Recovery Timeline

There would be bandage on nose for around 7 days after surgery. The bandage will help to reduce the swelling and keep the bones and cartilage on place. The stitches used will be dissolvable. The daily activities can be started in next 10 days after surgery. The rigorous activities will be restricted for around 7-8 weeks.
