- What is rhinoplasty surgery?
Rhinoplasty surgery, commonly known as a nose job, is an operation to reshape the nose. It is one of the most common plastic surgeries.
Rhinoplasty can: increase or reduce the size of the nose; change the shape of the tip of the nose, the bridge of the nose and the nostrils; change the angle between the nose and the upper lip; and straighten the septum (the part inside the nose that separates the nostrils) with a procedure called septoplasty.
There are limits to how much a nose can be altered. The final result will depend on the size of your nose, the condition of your skin and your age. The most important thing is that you communicate clearly with your surgeon about what you want and what is possible.You should bear in mind that surgery alone would not solve any emotional or social problems you may think are caused by your nose or your appearance in general.
- Why have rhinoplasty surgery?
Many people are self-conscious about the shape of their nose and have rhinoplasty for cosmetic reasons (that is, to improve the appearance of their nose).If this is the case, the aim of the operation would be to make your nose look right for you and to make you less self-conscious about it. So it is very important that you are clear in your mind what you dislike about your nose, and that you can explain this to your surgeon. He or she will then be able to tell you what is surgically possible and what is not.Most people who dislike their nose have concerns about the bridge or the tip.
Rhinoplasty is most commonly carried out to: alter the hump at the bridge of the nose;
reshape the tip of the nose; change the length or width of the nose; change the width of the nostrils.
Other patients may choose to have rhinoplasty because of an injury to the nose, if the nose has been broken or bent by some kind of accident. Others may have breathing problems relating to the nasal airways, and will choose to have septoplasty.
In both of these cases, rhinoplasty would be considered to be reconstructive, whereas for the majority of nose operations the surgery is classed as cosmetic. Septoplasty can sometimes be carried out at the same time as the work to improve the appearance of the nose.
- How is the surgery performed?
Rhinoplasty to change the shape of the nose is performed either from inside the nostrils (called closed rhinoplasty) or by making a small cut between the nostrils and lifting the skin, as shown opposite (this is called open rhinoplasty). The precise nature of the operation will depend on the area of the nose that is being treated. The scar may be straight, V-shaped or zigzag.
Changing the ridge of the nose - If the bridge of the nose is being operated on, the surgeon removes the bone and cartilage that is causing the ‘hump’. The nose may then be broken so the remaining pieces of bone can be moved closer together to narrow the nose.
Changing the tip of the nose - If the tip of the nose is being operated on, the cartilage that makes up the support under the tip needs to be partly removed or reshaped. This can be done through closed or open rhinoplasty.
Changing the length of the nose - Your surgeon will adjust and reduce the septum, to help shrink the tip and reduce the overall length of the nose. Adjusting the cartilage at the tip of the nose can also reduce the length of the nose.
Changing the width of the nose -Your surgeon can reduce the width of the nose, to make it narrower, by breaking the bone and repositioning it.
Increasing the bridge or tip of the nose - Surgeons can use bone or cartilage, or an implant, to change the contour of a ‘flat’ bridge or tip. This is called additional rhinoplasty or augmentation rhinoplasty. The bone or cartilage used can be taken from the nose (the nasal bone or the septum), or from other places such as the rib, hip or ear
Changing the septum - If your nose has been flattened by an injury, the septum could be buckled, making breathing difficult. This can sometimes be altered at the same time as the surgery explained on the previous page, or as a separate operation.
