What is Rhinoplasty

A Rhinoplasty procedure, or nose job surgery, is a facial plastic surgery.  It is the second most common plastic surgery procedure behind breast augmentation. Some rhinoplasty patients have been unhappy with the shape or size of their noses since their youth.

Others present with nasal deformities or abnormalities that resulted from trauma. Addressing certain features of the patient’s nose (dorsal hump, wide nose, flaring nostrils, crooked nose, etc.) can achieve facial harmony and have dramatic effects on their self-esteem and confidence.

Who Is A Candidate for a Rhinoplasty Procedure

Good candidates for primary rhinoplasty surgery typically include individuals who:

  • Have realistic expectations about the outcome.
  • Are in good overall health.
  • Are non-smokers, as smoking can impact healing.
  • Have completed facial growth (usually around late teens).
  • Experience dissatisfaction with the size, shape, or functionality of their nose.
  • Seek improvement rather than perfection.
  • Understand the surgical process and recovery involved.
  • Have a positive mindset and emotional well-being.
  • Have encountered trauma, such as a broken nose or nasal valve collapse

A thorough consultation with qualified plastic surgeons is crucial to determine specific candidacy for a rhinoplasty procedure based on individual health and aesthetic goals.

Types of Rhinoplasty Techniques

Open Rhinoplasty Technique

In an open rhinoplasty, a small Z-shaped incision is made beneath the nose between the nostrils.

This approach enables precise changes to the nose shape, and though the incision is small, proper care ensures a quick fading of the scar.

Closed Rhinoplasty Technique

In closed rhinoplasty, incisions are made inside the nose, preserving the skin. The drawback is reduced visibility of bone and cartilage, but it entails less swelling compared to open rhinoplasty, making it suitable for correcting minor imperfections.

Tip Plasty (nasal tip rhinoplasty)

In tip plasty, the facial plastic surgeon concentrates on refining the nose tip without altering the nasal bones.

This minimally invasive procedure usually entails a shorter recovery period compared to traditional rhinoplasty.


In septoplasty, the surgeon adjusts the nasal septum, often called deviated septum rhinoplasty, improving nasal breathing.

While it usually doesn’t affect external appearance, combining it with rhinoplasty enhances both form and function for comprehensive nose improvement.

Revision Rhinoplasty (Corrective Surgery)

If dissatisfied with the your previous rhinoplasty results, maybe due to difficulty breathing or not achieving your desired shape, consider revision rhinoplasty.

This revision rhinoplasty addresses cosmetic issues not fixed before or tackles new functional concerns post the initial surgery.

Liquid Rhinoplasty

In a liquid rhinoplasty, dermal fillers reshape the nose without stitches or incisions. While it doesn’t reduce nose size, it effectively corrects minor asymmetries and indentations without surgical intervention.

Rhinoplasty Procedure

A rhinoplasty surgery is a cosmetic procedure performed normally under general anesthesia.  Rhinoplasty surgeons may use either an internal or external incision, often located at the base of the nose, to access the underlying bone and nasal cartilage.

The nose surgeon then carefully reshapes these tissues to achieve the desired aesthetic or functional outcome. This may involve removing excess soft tissue, straightening the nasal bridge, refining the tip, or correcting asymmetry.

The skin is then redraped over the newly sculpted framework, which can sometimes include an ear graft or rib cartilage graft, to enhance facial balance and give a balanced nasal appearance.

Rhinoplasty Recovery

An outpatient procedure ensures a facial rejuvenation with your nose job yielding immediate results, though complete skin contraction to the new shape may take several months.

Pain levels vary, with oral medication possibly required for up to 7 days. External taping and splinting last for a week, while drains, if used, are typically removed within that timeframe.

Sutures are taken out at 5 to 7 days. No restrictions on daily activities are imposed, encouraging patients to walk, with showers permitted 2 days post-surgery.

Exercise is allowed at 2 weeks, but activities risking nasal trauma should be avoided for 4 weeks. Return to work varies, typically taking 1 to 2 weeks based on job demands.

During your rhinoplasty recovery time, follow-up appointments are scheduled at 1 week, 2 weeks, 6 weeks, 3 months, and as needed.

Rhinoplasty FAQS Answered

How painful is a rhinoplasty surgical procedure?

In reality, the majority of our nose job patients report mild discomfort rather than severe pain. A more accurate description of rhinoplasty recovery focuses on discomfort, particularly related to congestion.

How long does an asian nose surgery last?

Asian rhinoplasty is notably beneficial due to the typical smaller and flatter nasal structures found in Asian individuals relative to their facial proportions. One significant advantage of rhinoplasty is its predominantly lifelong results.

What are the risks of rhinoplasty surgery?

The potential for severe surgical or post-operative complications is present, with severe bleeding or infection being the most common in “medical” rhinoplasty. In my practice, urgent bleeding incidents requiring intervention occur in less than 1 in 500 cases, and post-operative infections happen about 1% of the time.

What are the main benefits of having a nose job surgery?

Rhinoplasty addresses various issues such as snoring reduction, birth defect correction, sinus problem treatment, enhanced breathing, broken nose repair, correction of previous unsuccessful procedures, and enhancement of facial symmetry. Patients primarily benefit from improved nasal function and achieving a more harmonious facial aesthetic.

How many days off will I need after a rhinoplasty?

Typically, the bulk of swelling diminishes within three days post-surgery. Patients can often resume work after 1-2 weeks, with the timing varying based on the nature of their job. Gradually ease back into regular activities, avoiding excessive exertion early on. Strenuous or contact-related activities should be postponed for at least 3-6 weeks to support proper healing.

Is an ethnic rhinoplasty more expensive?

While an ethnic rhinoplasty might entail added complexity, leading to potentially higher nose job costs, this isn’t always the case. The primary determinant of procedure expenses is the intricacy of the rhinoplasty itself, rather than the patient’s ethnic background.  Different attention to detail or advanced surgical techniques may be needed in cases of wide or thin nose rhinoplasty.

What is the recovery time for rhinoplasty procedure?

Full recovery from rhinoplasty surgery may extend up to a year. Initial swelling typically persists for four to six weeks post-surgery, gradually diminishing within three months. During the three-month to one-year mark, the nose continues to heal, and residual swelling may persist.

Is rhinoplasty considered a reconstructive surgery?

Functional rhinoplasty is a reconstructive surgical procedure aimed at restoring both the form and function of the nose following conditions such as disease, cancer treatments, or traumatic injuries. A reconstructive surgeon will use this specialized technique to fix congenital defects or a birth defect like a deviated septum, improving breathing and overall nasal function.

Where can I find rhinoplasty near me?

Will my insurance cover a nose job procedure?

When the purpose of your surgery is purely cosmetic, your insurance provider may classify it as elective, potentially resulting in no coverage for the expenses.

Yet, if your rhinoplasty is deemed medically necessary, such as in cases involving birth defects, sinus issues, nasal deformity, breathing issues, or other health-related concerns, there’s a possibility that your insurance could cover some or all of the procedure’s costs.
