RHINOPLASTY / NOSE JOB

Rhinoplasty, often referred to as a ‘Nose Job’ is performed to create a functional, aesthetic, and facially proportionate nose by altering the size or shape, the span of the nostrils and/or the angle between the nose and the upper lip.
Rhinoplasty surgery is carried out to restore functionality caused by nasal trauma, congenital defect, respiratory impediment, or a failed primary surgery which would be then known as revision Rhinoplasty.

The procedure

Rhinoplasty surgery is usually carried out under General Anaesthetic and can take between 1.5 to 2hrs in theatre, based on the extent of the surgery either daycase surgery is appropriate or sometimes an overnight stay in hospital is required.

Depending on the reason for surgery, the incisions can vary. If the procedure is to be a closed approach, two incisions are made inside the nose to separate the nasal skin and soft tissue and to allow access to the cartilage and bone, if the approach is to be open, an incision is placed on the skin across the columella.

The incisions are sutured and either a package or stent, sometimes both is applied to immobilise the corrected nose and ensure proper healing of the surgical incision.

Risks and Complications

With all surgical procedures there are risks to consider, common complaints include bruising, swelling and headaches which should subside as the nose heals. More uncommon complications can include haematoma, infection, delayed healing or skin necrosis and persistent nose bleeds. Rarely patients can experience a change in the sense of smell (anosmia) and the risks associated to General Anaesthesia must also be considered, these can include respiratory issue and DVT. Our team of nursing staff monitor the progress of patients for signs of these complications very carefully post operatively and patients are given contact information should they need medical assistance once discharged from the hospital.
