Nose reshaping (Rhinoplasty)

Overview of the surgery:

Nose reshaping (Rhinoplasty)

Nose reshaping (nose reduction) is a cosmetic surgery for patients who have prominent large noses with oversized bridges and depressed nasal tips. It aims to create a well-balanced nose by reducing the dorsal hump, narrowing the bridge, improving the nasal tip projection and definition. The incisions are placed on the rim of the alar of nose. Soft tissues of the nose are then separated from the underlying structures, the bone and cartilage are then reshaped and the skin re-draped over the surface. Patients who have a deviated septum may benefit by correction of this problem at the time of surgery.

Operation Time:

The procedure usually takes about 1-2 hours.

Type of Anesthesia use:

Local anesthesia with mild sedation, general anesthesia

Hospital/clinic stay:

1 night

Days to stay in Thailand:

7 days.

Risks and Complications:

When Nose Reduction is performed by a qualified plastic surgeon, complications are infrequent and usually minor. Nevertheless, there is always a possibility of complications, including infection, nosebleed, or a reaction to the anesthesia. You can reduce your risks by closely following your surgeon’s instructions both before and after surgery. After surgery, small burst blood vessels may appear as tiny red spots on the skin’s surface; these are usually minor but may be permanent. As for scarring, when Nose Reduction is performed from inside the nose, there is no visible scarring at all; when an “open” technique is used, or when the procedure calls for the narrowing of flared nostrils, the small scars on the base of the nose are usually not visible

Recovery Period:

You can go back to work or return to school within 2 days following surgery and will take about 1-2 weeks until it will be completely healed.

Preparation Prior To Surgery:

  • Medical history assessment (any allergies, serious medical condition and all medications taken both prescribed and non-prescribed), physical examination, and laboratory tests will be performed during consultation.
  • Avoid smoking   for about 3-4 weeks prior to surgery, as nicotine interferes with circulation and will greatly affect healing process.
  • Stop drinking alcohol, a week before the surgery and throughout your recovery period.
  • Taking any medications should be avoided such as hormones, anticoagulants, anabolic steroids and supplements at least 4-6 weeks to prevent complicating medical factors prior to surgery, and also avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements as they can increase bleeding.
