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. A plastic surgeon experienced in rhinoplasty will be able to increase or, conversely, reduce the size of the nose, change its shape and eliminate breathing problems. The rhinoplasty service is available to all patients at the clinic. Our experts use modern and safe methods to effectively and quickly eliminate various defects, making facial features more harmonious and attractive.

Indications and contraindications of rhinoplasty
The rhinoplasty procedure will help to restore the correct shapes and functions of the nose, which were disturbed during fetal development 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 the nose or it does not work properly, you can voluntarily contact a plastic surgeon, explain the problem, and the specialist will select the most effective correction method, taking into account individual characteristics.
Rhinoplasty, the cost of which in the clinic is available to any 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 face dimensions, shape;
- breathing problems;
- nasal septum deviation.
As for contraindications, it is worth mentioning that the procedure is not prescribed for pregnant and lactating women. There are also medical contraindications, in which plastic surgery is fraught with serious complications. These 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, breastfeeding.
types of operation
Rhinoplasty includes the following types of surgery:
- nasal septum plastic surgery - septoplasty;
- replacement of a broken bone;
- hump removal;
- nose shortening;
- convergence of the bones of the nose;
- state-of-the-art support and correction;
- correction of the wings of the nose;
- complete nose correction.
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 detachment of the skin from the framework. Through closed access, the following types of operations are performed:
- shape change;
- removal of excess nasal bone or cartilage;
- volume increase, etc.
If the volume of surgical intervention 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, a non-surgical type of rhinoplasty with fillers has recently become very popular. This type of intervention is used to solve the following problems:
- correct minor nose imperfections;
- get a rounded tip;
- restore symmetry, etc.
nose tip rhinoplasty
Plastic nose tip correction includes various surgical operations performed on the terminal section of the nose. It is possible to improve the shapes by removing deformed or excess parts of cartilaginous tissue, fixing them in the correct position.
The nose tip rhinoplasty 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;
- reduction or increase in projection;
- restoration of the symmetry and natural shape of the nose.
The variety of anatomical variants of the nasal cone requires the surgeon to develop an individual plan of surgical intervention for each patient. When choosing a methodology, several factors are taken into account:
- skin thickness;
- shape and strength of cartilaginous tissue;
- anatomy of vault angles;
- length and width of the nose;
- back contours;
- nasolabial angle;
- the results expected by the patient.
Correction of the wings of the nose can be performed as a stand-alone 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, correct various birth defects, eliminate obstructed nasal breathing due to very narrow nostrils and nasal passages.
Correction of the shape of the nose to correct the hump can be carried out both with surgical intervention and without it - by injection. The choice of technique depends on the degree of deformity, as well as the patient's wishes.
The surgical option of rhinoplasty involves removing cartilage or bone tissue through an external or internal incision. After the operation, sutures are applied. Another surgical method of correction is grinding. The procedure makes it possible to correct a small hump without removing bone structures.
A non-surgical rhinoplasty technique involves introducing a special filler under the skin, which will fill the gaps, eliminating a small defect in just one session. The effect of this procedure lasts from 1 to 1. 5 years.
Nasal septum correction
This is a surgical correction of the deformed cartilage or bony structures in the nose. This type of rhinoplasty is indicated for patients who, due to nasal septum deformity, are concerned about respiratory problems.
Columellaplasty is a cosmetic surgery that aims to correct the size and shape of the septum that separates the nostrils. Columella plays a huge role in the aesthetic perception of the face as a whole, and any change in its size and shape can negatively affect the appearance.
Columellaplasty may be necessary if it is deformed, too large or, conversely, small, the nasolabial angle is smooth or pointed, etc. A columella is considered harmonious if it is located below the level of the wings.
If during rhinoplasty surgeons are mainly concerned with the appearance of the nose and aesthetic aspects, in septoplasty they work mainly on what is inside and solve the physiological problems. Combined rhinoseptoplasty (rhinoplasty + septoplasty) includes correction of deviated nasal septum, correction of the shape and size of the nose. The technique allows to restore normal nasal breathing, eliminate deformities and deviations of the nose. It can be done open, closed or endoscopically.
Preparation for rhinoplasty
In the initial phase of preparation, a consultation with a plastic surgeon is necessary, who will carry out an examination, find out the reasons why the patient decided to have the operation, determine the type and extent of the intervention and inform approximately the amount of plastic surgery costs. in the nose. For the best cosmetic results, photographs and computer simulations of the new nose are taken.
In the preparation phase, it is important to exclude contraindications. To assess the general condition of the patient, a comprehensive examination is prescribed, including the following diagnostic procedures:
- general and biochemical blood test;
- general analysis of urine;
- tests for hepatitis, HIV, STDs;
- CT skull.
How is rhinoplasty done?
You can have rhinoplasty and get the best results at the clinic. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia combined with infiltrative local anesthesia. Depending on the complexity of the intervention, the duration of the operation is from 1 to 2 hours, sometimes longer.
During the operation, a surgical correction of the bony and cartilaginous structure is performed to give the external nose more aesthetically favorable dimensions and shape:
- length change;
- width, height correction;
- elimination of the hump;
- correction of back curvature and retraction;
- rhinoplasty, etc.
For rhinoplasty, the clinic's plastic surgeons use modern and sparing techniques, so that scars are practically not visible after surgery, and the risks of postoperative complications are reduced to zero.
Possible complications after surgery
The risks of complications after rhinoplasty are minimal, but unfortunately not completely excluded. Possible negative consequences of the postoperative period:
- persistent swelling that does not go away within six months;
- joining the infection;
- hypertrophy of the subcutaneous tissue within the surgical intervention or in the area of cartilage removal;
- smell disorders;
- 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 nose shape is fixed with a plaster cast. When intervening on the cartilage of the nose, such a patch should be worn for 5-7 days. When performing manipulations on the bone section, the pad is used longer - 12-14 days.
Pain after surgery is moderate, to relieve the condition, the doctor may prescribe an anesthetic medication. In the first few days, due to severe swelling, breathing problems can be worrisome. It is not recommended to wear glasses for 1. 5 months after rhinoplasty. A complete rehabilitation course lasts an average of 6 to 8 months, so the final results of the procedure can be evaluated from six months to a year after the operation.
cost of rhinoplasty
The cost is determined by the complexity of the intervention, the technique of execution and the type of anesthesia. To clarify how much it costs to correct the nose, you need to get a more detailed consultation in a consultation with a specialist.
