Rhinoplasty

The aim of this operation is to achieve an aesthetically pleasing overall appearance and to positively influence self-image. Many people find their nose unaesthetic, whether due to a nose tip that is too large or too narrow, a crooked nose, a humped nose or an asymmetrical shape.

Procedure

A nose correction, also known as rhinoplasty, is typically performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. The exact procedure may vary depending on the individual needs and goals of the patient, but generally includes the following steps.

We then make the necessary incisions, either inside the nostrils (closed rhinoplasty) or additionally a small incision on the columella, the tissue between the nostrils (open rhinoplasty). This allows us to access the internal structures of the nose.

The next step involves reshaping the structure of the nose, where we model the bones, cartilage tissue, and soft tissues of the nose to achieve the desired improvements. This may include removing excess tissue, reshaping the cartilage, or adjusting the nasal septum.

Once the desired changes have been made, the incisions are carefully sutured. In closed rhinoplasty, the scars are usually not visible because they are inside the nostrils. With open rhinoplasty, a small scar may be present on the columella, but this usually heals well and becomes less noticeable over time.

After the operation, the patient is taken to the recovery room where they are closely monitored. Painkillers and, if necessary, antibiotics are prescribed to minimize discomfort and the risk of infection.
