how to do rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is an operation that allows you to adjust the shape and size of the sides of the nose, the tip of the nose and the bridge of the nose. The operation can be performed by open and closed methods.

Why is rhinoplasty needed?

The operation is related to the correction of breathing, but the main task of rhinoplasty is a beautiful nose, namely:

  • Correction of a birth defect
  • Remove the hump on the nose
  • Straightening a bridge
  • Change the shape of the tip of the nose
  • Change the size of the nostrils
  • Correction of the nose after injury
  • Opening the airways
  • Increase or decrease the size of the nose
  • Correction of nasal asymmetry

Rhinoplasty and Septoplasty: What's the Difference?

Rhinoplasty is an operation to change the shape of the nose. Because breathing and the shape of the nose are interrelated, rhinoplasty can sometimes be performed not only to change the appearance of the nose, but also to improve breathing.

Septoplasty is an operation to improve breathing by straightening the wall inside the nose, which separates the nasal passages on the right and left sides (nasal septum). When the septum is curved, it makes it difficult to breathe. Septoplasty is often combined with rhinoplasty.

How is rhinoplasty performed?

The nose correction operation can be open or closed. The type of operation is determined individually depending on the patient's nasal defects.

The closed operation is performed through internal incisions.


  • Does not leave visible scars
  • Does not hurt the skin between the nostrils
  • Allows you to perform complex work with the internal tissues of the nose.

It is performed in 6 stages:

  1. They give you anesthesia.
  2. Incisions are made inside the nasal passages. The number and size of incisions depend on what needs to be fixed.
  3. The doctor works with the structures of the nose to get the desired result.
  4. The doctor puts all the tissues back in place and sutures.
  5. The doctor fixes the nose with a plaster bandage.
  6. After the operation you are escorted to the recovery room.
Open surgery is performed through an incision on the outside, at the narrowest point of the nose.


  • The entire cartilage is exposed, allowing the surgeon to freely correct high, wide or flat nasal spines, asymmetries, dips and bumps in the nose.
  • The ability to remove, move parts of bone or cartilage, install nasal implants.
  • Invisible scar.

It is performed in 6 stages:

  1. The operation can be performed under local or general anesthesia. For example, correction of the tip of the nose can be performed under local anesthesia, while complete rhinoplasty can be performed under general anesthesia.
  2. An incision is made between the nostrils (columella).
  3. The doctor examines the nose, cartilage and bone structure and then makes the necessary adjustments.
  4. The doctor applies a thin suture. Delicate sewing allows you to get an almost imperceptible scar.
  5. The doctor applies a plaster bandage.
  6. After the operation you are escorted to the recovery room.

Open or closed nose surgery usually takes between 15 minutes and 45 minutes.

The doctor will tell you about the possible complications after rhinoplasty during the consultation.

  3. At the consultation a plastic surgeon makes a computer simulation. This allows you to see the approximate result of rhinoplasty.
  4. You take tests and come to the clinic on the agreed day.
  5. Ibuprofen and aspirin should be avoided before and after surgery. These medicines slow down the clotting process and can cause bleeding.
