Nose Reshaping (nose reduction)

Overview of the surgery:
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.
