Rhinoplasty (nose job)

Rhinoplasty or rhinoplasty is a branch of plastic surgery that deals with the correction of various congenital or acquired deformities of the nose. Also, with the help of rhinoplasty in some cases it is possible to completely restore the missing nose or its individual parts. An experienced rhinoplasty surgeon will be able to increase or, conversely, reduce the size of the nose, change the shape and eliminate breathing problems. The rhinoplasty service is available to every patient of the clinic. Our specialists use modern and safe methods to get rid of various defects effectively and quickly, making facial features more harmonious and attractive.

Indications and contraindications for rhinoplasty

The rhinoplasty procedure will help to restore the correct shapes and functions of the nose, which were disturbed during the development of the fetus or as a result of various diseases, as well as injuries received during life: thermal, chemical, mechanical.

There are no strict medical indications for surgery. If the patient is dissatisfied with the shape of his nose or it does not function properly, you can voluntarily contact a plastic surgeon, explain the problem and the specialist will choose the most effective method of correction, taking into account individual characteristics.

Rhinoplasty, the price of which in the clinic is affordable for every patient, allows you to eliminate various aesthetic and functional defects:

  • saddle shape;
  • pronounced hump;
  • thickened or forked tip;
  • dilated nostrils;
  • "eagle beak" effect;
  • disproportionate to the size of the face, shape;
  • breathing problems;
  • deflected nasal septum.

As for contraindications, it is worth noting that the procedure is not prescribed to pregnant and lactating women. There are also medical contraindications in which plastic surgery is fraught with serious complications. They include:

  • diseases of the hematopoietic system (relative contraindication);
  • chronic cardiovascular diseases;
  • oncological disease of any location;
  • renal, hepatic, heart failure;
  • recent heart attack, stroke;
  • infectious processes in the acute phase;
  • congenital or acquired immunodeficiency (relative contraindication);
  • severe mental illness and disorder (relative contraindication);
  • pregnancy, lactation.

Types of operations

Rhinoplasty includes the following types of operations:

  • plastic surgery of the nasal septum - septoplasty;
  • reposition of a broken bone;
  • hump removal;
  • shortening of the nose;
  • convergence of the nasal bones;
  • top support and correction;
  • correction of the wings of the nose;
  • complete correction of the nose.

Depending on the method chosen by the surgeon, both closed and open access can be used during rhinoplasty. Closed rhinoplasty is performed through small incisions in the nasal cavity with separation of the skin from the frame. The following types of operations are performed through closed access:

  • change of shape;
  • removal of excess nasal bone or cartilage;
  • increase in volume, etc.

If the volume of surgery is large, open access rhinoplasty is used. Incisions are made in the columella, the vertical skin fold that separates the nostrils.

In addition to traditional surgical rhinoplasty, filler rhinoplasty has recently become very popular and non-surgical. This type of intervention is used to solve the following problems:

  • corrects small imperfections of the nose;
  • achieve a rounded tip;
  • restoration of symmetry, etc.

Rhinoplasty on the tip of the nose

Plastic correction of the tip of the nose involves a series of surgeries performed on the tip of the nose. It is possible to improve the shapes by removing the deforming or excess parts of the cartilage tissue, fixing them in the correct position.

Rhinoplasty of the tip of the nose is one of the most difficult types of plastic surgery, allowing to achieve the following results:

  • narrowing or increasing the width of the tip of the nose;
  • decrease or increase the projection;
  • restoration of symmetry and the natural shape of the nose.

The variety of anatomical variants of the nasal conic requires the surgeon to develop an individual surgical intervention plan for each individual patient. When choosing a methodology, various factors are taken into account:

  • skin thickness;
  • shape and strength of cartilage tissue;
  • anatomy of the corners of the arches;
  • length and width of the nose;
  • contours of the back;
  • nasolabial angle;
  • the results expected by the patient.


The correction of the wings of the nose can be performed as an independent operation or as one of the stages of a more extensive surgical intervention. Rhinoplasty allows you to change the width, thickness, symmetry of the nostrils, to correct various birth defects, to remove the difficult nasal breathing due to too narrow nostrils and nasal passages.

hump correction

The correction of the shape of the nose to correct the hump can be done both with surgery and without it - by injection. The choice of technique depends on the degree of deformation, as well as the wishes of the patient.

The surgical variant of rhinoplasty involves the removal of cartilage or bone tissue through an external or internal incision. Sutures are placed after the operation. Another surgical method of correction is grinding. The procedure allows you to correct a small hump without cutting bone structures.

The technique of non-surgical rhinoplasty involves the introduction of a special filler under the skin that will fill the pits, removing a small defect in just one session. The effect of this procedure lasts 1 - 1, 5 years.

Nasal septum correction

This is a surgical correction of deformed cartilage or bone structures of the nose. This type of rhinoplasty is indicated for patients who are concerned about breathing problems due to a deformity of the nasal septum.

columella correction

Columella plastic surgery is an aesthetic surgery aimed at correcting the size and shape of the septum that separates the nostrils. Columella plays a major role in the aesthetic perception of the face as a whole and any changes in its size and shape can adversely affect the appearance.

Columella plastic surgery may be necessary if it is deformed, too large or, conversely, small, the nasolabial angle is smooth or pointed, etc. Columella is considered harmonious if it is located below the level of the wings.


If during rhinoplasty surgeons deal mainly with the appearance of the nose and aesthetic aspects, then during septoplasty they work mainly on what is inside and solve physiological problems. Combined rhinoseptoplasty (rhinoplasty + septoplasty) includes correction of a curved nasal septum, correction of the shape and size of the nose. The technique allows you to restore normal nasal breathing, eliminate deformities, as well as the deviation of the nose. It can be done open, closed or endoscopically.

Preparation for rhinoplasty

In the initial stage of preparation it is necessary to consult a plastic surgeon, who will conduct an examination, determine the reasons why the patient decided to undergo surgery, determine the type and scope of the intervention and say roughly how much plastic costs for nose surgery. . To achieve the best cosmetic results, photos and computer simulations of the new nose are taken.

At the stage of preparation it is important to exclude contraindications. To assess the general condition of the patient, a comprehensive examination is prescribed, including the following diagnostic procedures:

  • electrocardiogram;
  • fluorography;
  • general and biochemical blood test;
  • general urine analysis;
  • tests for hepatitis, HIV, STIs;
  • coagulogram;
  • CT of the skull.

How is rhinoplasty performed?

You can do rhinoplasty and get the best results in the clinic. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia combined with local infiltration anesthesia. Depending on the complexity of the intervention, the duration of the operation is 1-2 hours, sometimes longer.

During the operation, a surgical correction of the bone and cartilage frame is performed in order to give the outer nose a more aesthetically pleasing size and shape:

  • change in length;
  • width, height correction;
  • hump removal;
  • curvature correction and back retraction;
  • rhinoplasty, etc.

For rhinoplasty, the clinic's plastic surgeons use modern, gentle techniques, so that after the operation the scars are practically invisible and the risks of postoperative complications are reduced to zero.

Possible complications after surgery

The risks of complications after rhinoplasty are minimal, but, unfortunately, are not completely ruled out. Possible negative consequences of the postoperative period:

  • persistent swelling that does not go away within six months;
  • hematomas;
  • joining the infection;
  • hypertrophy of the subcutaneous tissue in the framework of surgery or in the area of cartilage removal;
  • odor disorders;
  • nosebleeds;
  • tissue necrosis.

Rehabilitation after rhinoplasty

After all surgical procedures, tampons are installed in the nasal passages, which can be removed only after 2-3 days. The new shape of the nose is fixed with a plaster cast. When intervening on the cartilage of the nose, such a sticker should be worn for 5-7 days. When performing manipulations on the bone section, the pad is worn longer - 12 - 14 days.

The pain after the operation is moderate, the doctor may prescribe an anesthetic to alleviate the condition. In the first days, due to severe swelling, breathing problems can be disturbing. It is not recommended to wear glasses for 1. 5 months after rhinoplasty. The full rehabilitation course lasts an average of 6-8 months, so the final results of the procedure can be assessed from six months to one year after surgery.

The cost of rhinoplasty

The price is determined by the complexity of the intervention, the technique of execution and the type of anesthesia. To specify how much it costs to correct the nose, you should get a more detailed consultation when meeting with a specialist.
