Nose Surgery or Rhinoplasty

Balances the disproportionate nose…

Definition and objectives

The intervention aims to soften the morphology of the nasal pyramid and correct any breathing problems. A rhinoplasty can be performed alone or associated, if necessary, with other complementary actions in the face, especially a genioplasty (modification of the chin to improve the profile’s contour).

The intervention aims to reshape the nose, emphasizing a natural harmony with other facial features, suitable for the patient’s psychology, personality, and demands.

Procedure and scars

The operation can be performed at the end of puberty, i.e. as of the age of 16, and is suitable for both men and women.

Usually the procedure is performed under general anesthesia or under local anesthesia with sedation, and only requires a day of hospitalization.

The incisions are hidden inside the nostrils and, depending on the deformation, small incisions are made over the columella and/or base of the wings of the nose.
