What is a rhinoplasty?


In This Article:


Surgery to reshape the nose is known as rhinoplasty. It may be performed for cosmetic reasons (to alter the nose's appearance) or functional reasons (to enhance or correct breathing).

The nose structure is composed of bone up top and cartilage down beneath. Bone, cartilage, or skin may be modified during rhinoplasty. Your surgeon can tell you whether rhinoplasty is a good option for you and what results in you may expect.

Your facial characteristics, the quality of your skin, and the goals for the procedure will all be taken into account by your surgeon when arranging your rhinoplasty. If surgery is an option, your doctor will create a strategy that is unique to you.

Why it's done

People receive rhinoplasty for various reasons, including repairing a damaged nose after an accident, treating breathing issues or a congenital disability, or being dissatisfied with how their nose looks.

Through rhinoplasty, your surgeon has the ability to make several modifications to your nose, including the following:

  • An adjustment to the size
  • A change in angle
  • Correction of the crookedness of the bridge
  • Contouring the tip of the nose
  • A constriction of the nasal passages

Wait until your nasal bone is completely developed before undergoing rhinoplasty if the primary motivation for the procedure is to enhance your look rather than your health. This corresponds roughly to the age of 15 for females.

It's possible that boys won't finish growing into their bodies until they're a little older. On the other hand, a rhinoplasty may be performed on a person of a younger age if the surgery is being done due to respiratory difficulties.

What is the best age for this surgery?

When someone has reached both physical and emotional maturity, then is the time when they should consider getting a rhinoplasty. This age varies for each gender; nevertheless, it is common for females to reach maturity around 16 and for boys to do so after reaching 17 or 18.

After surgery effects

Following are some after-effects of undergoing rhinoplasty:

  • Breathing Complications: Breathing complications are explained to anyone having nose surgery. The goal of any rhinoplasty, whether for cosmetic or functional reasons, is to improve or at least maintain breathing and not compromise breathing for a cosmetic outcome. In the right hands, you should always breathe better after rhinoplasty.
  • Pain: Rhinoplasty patients should expect discomfort after their procedure, but this usually lasts only a few days and is well tolerated.
  • Swelling: Swelling is a perfectly normal and unavoidable side effect of rhinoplasty. During the procedure, the delicate tissue, cartilage, and bones in your nose will undergo significant manipulation and trauma, causing swelling in the body's effort to heal the damage.
  • Bleeding: As the blood vessels in the nose attempt to heal after surgery, some patients may experience a small amount of nasal bleeding. This should resolve after the first couple of days, but it is essential to call your doctor if this symptom continues.
  • Changes in voice: Changes in voice following rhinoplasty may be noticeable to the patient and professionals, although these variations do not often result in difficulties with the patient's ability to communicate.


Even though rhinoplasty is a simple and risk-free treatment, the recovery time after it may be lengthy. Your nose's tip is very sensitive, and it may continue to feel numb and swell for many months after an injury.

It might take a few weeks to feel completely well, but some of the benefits could last for many months. It is possible that it may take you an entire year before you are able to appreciate the results of your operation correctly.
