Overview of

Nose Reshaping (Rhinoplasty)

in Thailand

Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure done to enhance facial symmetry by reshaping the nose. It is a common aesthetic technique used to bring balance to the face and thereby improving your overall look.

Contrary to popular belief, rhinoplasty is not only done for beauty enhancement. It can also be done to bring relief to any structural anomalies in the nose such as damage brought about by accidents. Rhinoplasty can improve the size, shape, and symmetry of the nose.

Also known as a “nose job”, rhinoplasty not only enhances facial symmetry but also relieves the patient of any breathing problems brought about by nasal anomalies. In some cases, patients are born with uneven or blocked nasal passages which causes difficulty of breathing.

Here are some specific issues that can be solved with rhinoplasty:

  • nasal asymmetry
  • upturned, drooping, and bulbous nasal tip
  • large or asymmetrical nostrils
  • nasal bumps
  • overall nasal asymmetry

Rhinoplasty can either enhance or reduce the shape of a nose. In a procedure called reduction rhinoplasty, the patient’s own bone and cartilage are sculpted to improve facial symmetry. On the other hand, a nose reshaping surgery may use artificial or natural grafts to add or improve the structure of the nose.

Goals of

Nose Reshaping (Rhinoplasty)

In essence, rhinoplasty can either be considered as cosmetic or reconstructive.

The two main goals of rhinoplasty are to improve the look and function of the nose. While this procedure is more widely utilized as a way to improve the overall look of the face, it can be also be used to repair other structural anomalies such as bumps, large nasal tips, or blocked nasal passages. People who have experienced injury to the face as a result of an accident can also benefit from rhinoplasty.

Pros and cons of

Nose Reshaping (Rhinoplasty)

Pros

  • Improved self-esteem. If you’ve been struggling with the size or shape of your nose for years, then rhinoplasty can definitely improve the way you see yourself.
  • Improved health. Nasal deformities can cause difficulty in breathing, insomnia, or recurrent sinus infections. Undergoing rhinoplasty will relieve these symptoms.
  • Enhanced beauty. Improving the symmetry of the face through rhinoplasty will make you appear more aesthetically pleasing.

Cons

  • Rhinoplasty typically comes with a long and arduous post-operative care.
  • Since it directly affects breathing, the post-operative recovery stage requires a few key adjustments, such as learning to breathe through the mouth for an extended period of time.
  • You may also need to have bandages on your nose/face for a while.

How it works:

There are a number of ways which you can go about your rhinoplasty experience. The type of anesthesia, technique, and complexity of the procedure will depend on your own unique needs. 

Before going in for your appointment, your surgical team will discuss these key points with you. It is also important to set realistic goals and expectations with your surgeon. You must be on the same page with your surgical team about how you want to look after the procedure.

Pain control is essential during and after the procedure. Your anesthesiologist may use local or general anesthesia depending on the complexity and duration of the procedure.

In order to change the shape of your nose, the doctor may need to use some cartilage from your own body. The doctor can extract it from your ear, your rib, or even from within your nose.

Preparation before

Nose Reshaping (Rhinoplasty)

Pre - treatment

Your surgical team will help you prepare for the surgery. You will also need to disclose if you’re taking any type of medication or supplements. Your doctor may ask you to stop taking them a few days before the procedure.

You must be free from any infection and respiratory problems. If you have existing medical problems such as diabetes or heart disease you will need to ask for medical clearance before your rhinoplasty.

Recovery after

Nose Reshaping (Rhinoplasty)

Post - treatment

A typical rhinoplasty procedure takes around 2 to 3 hours to complete, depending on the complexity of your case. Your team will then place you in the recovery area where you will be closely observed and monitored. In some cases, patients may also be asked to stay overnight in the hospital to ensure a smooth recovery process.

You will be sent home with a nose splint which will be in place for about a week. Once that’s removed, you will need to stay at home for at least another week to recover before returning to your usual activities.

Risks & side effects

Just like any other surgery, rhinoplasty comes with some risks. This includes asymmetry, nerve or tear duct injury, adverse reaction to anesthesia or other medications and a need for revision surgery.

FAQs:

Nose Reshaping (Rhinoplasty)

Will I be asleep during surgery?

Your anesthesiologist will discuss these options with you. General anesthesia can be used to keep you sedated throughout the rhinoplasty procedure.

 

Will I be in pain, and if so, for how long?

The entire recovery period will last for about 2 to 3 weeks. Expect that your nose will be swollen and sore for a few days and should decrease with time. Medications will be given to help control the pain and swelling as a result of the rhinoplasty.

How long should I stay in the hospital?

Depending on the complexity of your rhinoplasty surgery, you may be asked to stay in the hospital for 2 hours or overnight post procedure. You will see your doctor for a check up after a week.

How does a plastic surgeon change the appearance of the nose through rhinoplasty?

A rhinoplasty changes the size and shape of the nose through surgery, thereby improving the symmetry of the face.

How old must I be to undergo rhinoplasty?

Patients with congenital nasal abnormalities may undergo rhinoplasty as soon as their doctors deemed it safe. In some cases, teenagers may ask their parents for a rhinoplasty procedure. However, the surgeon should thoroughly discuss this with the patient and the parents prior to doing the procedure. Emotional maturity, readiness for risk, and possible post op complications are some of the important considerations before undergoing a rhinoplasty.
