nose tip rhinoplasty

Nasal tip rhinoplasty consists of improving the shape and/or eliminating defects at the tip of the nose. Depending on the anatomical features and the desired result, the operation may require treatment of the cartilage, soft tissue and columella.

before and after rhinoplasty

Thanks to nose tip rhinoplasty, you can change:

  • The thickness of the area above the tip of the nose
  • Tip protrusion (the distance it is from the face)
  • Tip projection (the angle between the upper lip and the tip of the nose)
  • The position of the nasal septum

Nasal tip surgery is much more complicated than it might seem at first glance. The surgeon needs to plan his actions very precisely - otherwise the result can be directly opposite to expectations.

The bony and cartilaginous structure of the tip of the nose has a significant impact on its appearance. An unsuccessful intervention can lead to distortion not only of the shape of the tip, but also of the shape of the entire nose.

How is nose tip rhinoplasty performed?

The operation is performed under local or general anesthesia and takes 1-2-3 hours. It is difficult to single out some typical moments in nose tip plastic surgery - almost every operation is unique in its own way.

The same tasks faced by the surgeon in different cases will be solved differently - based on the anatomical structure of the nose, the thickness and shape of the cartilage, the strength of the tissues and other individual characteristics of the patient.

The preparation and recovery process after surgery is not very different from conventional rhinoplasty. It is necessary to give up smoking in advance and a series of drugs that affect blood clotting and the healing of sutures, in addition to undergoing a medical examination to identify possible contraindications.

In the first few days after rhinoplasty, swelling, bruising, and pain may occur. Recovery after surgery takes about 1-2 weeks, after which it is advisable to protect the nose from physical influences and high blood pressure for another 2-3 weeks (in particular, limit sports),

how much does rhinoplasty cost

The prices of the operation depend on the nature of the changes, the qualifications of the doctor and the prestige of the clinic, as well as a number of other factors.
