What is Rhinoplasty ?
Rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a nose job, is designed to help those who are unhappy with the shape, size, or form of their nose, either for medical or aesthetic reasons. It is a very commonly performed plastic surgery in India.
Rhinoplasty operation was one of the greatest highlights of Indian medical history. It is said that in 1500 BC, Sushruta, who is called the father of plastic surgery, was the first to perform a cosmetic reshaping operation of the nose. Till date, India leads in the success of this procedure offering the most affordable rhinoplasty cost in India with the best doctors for rhinoplasty resulting in huge medical tourism in India.
The surgery is performed for two main purposes:
Aesthetic: to improve the appearance of the nose i.e. broad nostrils, bulging nose tip, hawk like nose, bump on the bridge etc.
Functional: to correct the deviated septum to improve breathing
Nose plastic surgery or Rhinoplasty can accentuate your overall facial appearance by making the nose look in proportion with other facial procedures.
Benefits of rhinoplasty
- A rhinoplasty surgery done by a skilled surgeon improves the overall appearance of a person’s face
- The shape, size, asymmetry and other imperfections are smoothened out
- Breathing ability is improved and certain birth defects are corrected
- The quality of life of the person gets better leading to a fulfilling life with feelings of anxiety/ lack of confidence disappearing which were there earlier because of poor shape of the nose
|Surgery Time||2-3 Hours|
|Anesthesia Type||IV Sedation or General Anesthesia|
|Stitch Removal||7-10 Days|
|Initial Recovery Time||10 Days|
Am I a good Candidate?
If you are 18 or above, in good health, mentally and emotionally stable, with a dislike for your nose and have realistic expectations from the surgery, you are a good candidate for rhinoplasty.
If you are one of those who is thinking about rhinoplasty, then you would be curious to know what are the common reasons people undergo rhinoplasty. IndiCure has listed some of the reasons:
- Breathing Difficulties – Deviated septum and nostril collapse are the main reasons for difficulty in breathing.
- Snoring – Snoring is mainly caused by deviated septum. It can be congenital or due to trauma.
- Shape Change – People often complain that they have a nose bridge that is either too big or too small; or broad or narrow nostrils or short philtrum etc. These can be re-contoured with a rhinoplasty.
- Size Change – The size of the nose is another complaint most people have to make. A proportionate nose achieved with rhinoplasty can make a great difference to your face and make your facial features more harmonious, giving you a beautiful face.
- Gaining Symmetry – It is a proven fact that facial symmetry is one of the surest signs of perfect beauty in all cultures. Since the nose occupies the centre of the face, there can be substantial disruption in overall symmetry with a crooked or off-centre nose.

Types of rhinoplasty
There are various treatment options with rhinoplasty which decide the final goal of surgery such as:
The commonest type of rhinoplasty is to reduce the size of the nose in relation to the rest of the facial features by correcting the bridge, tip and nostrils.
Bone or tissue grafts are used to build the tip and/or bridge. Cartilage from nasal septum can also be used as a graft. Both with augmentation and reduction rhinoplasty 2D and 3D models are created for perfect results.Post-traumatic Rhinoplasty
Injury can cause serious functional and aesthetic damage. This can be dealt with by correcting the nasal septum which is often broken in trauma cases of the nose. This can be done within 10 to 15 days of injury but occasionally takes months to get the surgery done if trauma is extensive.Ethnic Rhinoplasty
It follows the same method as others but is done for African American, Caribbean, Hispanic, Asian and Middle Eastern people as they have softer nasal contours and need extra care to conserve these unique features.Adolescent Rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasty is usually not done till the growth phase is finished. However in exceptional cases of breathing difficulties or trauma it can be done in teenagers.
Ageing can cause constriction and drooping of nasal tissues. These problems can be alleviated by rhinoplasty.
How is Rhinoplasty done?
Incisions are made on the inside of nostrils to lift a flap and gain access to underlying bone and cartilage.
The required addition by grafts or reductions by removing tissues give the desired result.
The flap is then closed and sutured.
What is the Recovery after Rhinoplasty like?
Nasal packing (if used), stays in the nostrils for one to seven days. The outside stitches, if any, are taken off within the next five to seven days. The inner stitches however dissolve by themselves.
To reduce swelling and to keep the nasal bones in place, the nasal splint is kept in place for seven days.
Light activity like returning to work or school can be resumed in the next ten days. It takes about 6 – 8 weeks to resume rigorous activities.
What Results Can I Expect from Rhinoplasty?
You can expect great results if you have realistic expectations from rhinoplasty. Final results of rhinoplasty may not be apparent until 6 months to a year after the surgery.
