Understanding Rhinoseptoplasty:

Rhinoseptoplasty, commonly referred to as a “nose job” combined with septal correction, is a surgical procedure that addresses both cosmetic concerns and functional issues of the nose. This procedure aims to improve the appearance of the nose while also correcting any structural problems, such as a deviated septum, that may cause breathing difficulties.

Qualification and Consultation:

Before undergoing rhinoseptoplasty, patients will have a comprehensive consultation with our experienced ENT (ear, nose, and throat) specialists and plastic surgeons. During this consultation, the surgeon will assess the patient’s nasal structure, discuss their goals and expectations, and develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to achieve the desired aesthetic and functional outcomes.

Indications for RhinoseptoplastyRhinoseptoplasty may be recommended for various conditions, including:

  • Deviated Septum:¬†Correction of a deviated septum that obstructs airflow and causes breathing difficulties.
  • Cosmetic Concerns: Reshaping of the nasal structure to enhance facial harmony and achieve desired aesthetic results.
  • Nasal Obstruction: Relief of chronic nasal obstruction or congestion due to structural abnormalities.
  • Trauma: Repair of nasal deformities caused by injury or trauma.

Types of RhinoseptoplastyRhinoseptoplasty procedures can address a wide range of nasal concerns, including:

  • Functional Rhinoplasty: Focuses on correcting structural issues within the nose to improve breathing and overall nasal function.
  • Cosmetic Rhinoplasty: Focuses on improving the aesthetic appearance of the nose, such as reshaping the nasal bridge, refining the nasal tip, or correcting asymmetry.
  • Combined Functional and Cosmetic Rhinoseptoplasty: Addresses both functional and aesthetic concerns in a single procedure.

Treatment and ProcedureRhinoseptoplasty is typically performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation, depending on the complexity of the procedure and patient preferences. The surgery may involve:

  • Incisions: Incisions are strategically placed either inside the nostrils (closed rhinoseptoplasty) or across the columella (the strip of tissue between the nostrils) and inside the nostrils (open rhinoseptoplasty).
  • Septal Correction: The surgeon will straighten and reposition the deviated septum to improve airflow and breathing.
  • Reshaping: The surgeon will reshape the nasal bones, cartilage, and soft tissue to achieve the desired nasal contour and profile.
  • Tip Refinement: Refining the nasal tip may involve reshaping and repositioning the tip cartilage to achieve a more defined and balanced appearance.
  • Closure: Once the desired changes are made, the incisions are closed with sutures, and nasal splints or packing may be placed to support the newly sculpted nose during the initial healing phase.

Recovery and ResultsFollowing rhinoseptoplasty, patients will experience some swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort, which typically subsides within a few weeks. It may take several months for the final results of rhinoseptoplasty to fully manifest as swelling resolves and the nasal tissues settle into their new shape.
