Perfect nose - from dream to reality with rhinoplasty!
Rhinoplasty is a surgical intervention that belongs to the category of the oldest. According to the surviving data, the first plastic surgery of the nose was performed more than 2 thousand years ago.
Rhinoplasty is a plastic surgery that allows you to correct the nose. This is one of the most common surgical procedures in the field of plastic surgery.
Indications for rhinoplasty
Year after year, the standards of beauty change, but the beautiful shape and size of the nose undoubtedly continues to determine the attractiveness of a person.
This is not only about aesthetic flaws. More than 90% of the world’s population suffers from breathing problems caused by birth defects or related to nose injuries. Such problems significantly impair the quality of life. It’s no secret that curvature of the septum can cause bronchial asthma, allergies, and many other breathing problems. In this case, the salvation will be a more complex surgical intervention – “rhinoseptoplasty”.
Rhinoplasty requires real professionalism from a plastic surgeon. In the clinic of Andrey Kharkiv there is everything you need for an operation: a license, modern equipment, both in the operating unit and in the wards, and, of course, first-class specialists.
Thus, the medical indications for rhinoplasty are:
- Breathing problems.
- Nasal congestion.
- Narrowed nasal passages.
- Incorrect positioning of the nasal septum (ie, curvature, displacement).
- Rhinitis provoked by anomalies of the nose.
In addition, among the medical indications are the consequences of surgical interventions and injuries.
Among the aesthetic indications:
- Thepresence of a hump.
- Wide nose.
- Saddle retraction.
- Excessively long nose.
- Ugly tip of the nose (fleshy, too sharp, hooked, etc.).
Features of rhinoplasty
As with any other surgical intervention, you should carefully prepare for rhinoplasty. Traditionally, the preparatory phase begins several weeks before the operation. The patient must go through an examination (CT, ECG) and pass the necessary tests.
This is, first of all: general analysis of urine and blood, biochemical blood test. In addition, you will need a coagulogram, tests for hepatitis, AIDS, RW. Also, before rhinoplasty, you must provide a document that contains data on the Rh factor and blood group.
If there are appropriate indications, an X-ray of the facial skeleton can be additionally performed.
A week before rhinoplasty, you should exclude alcoholic beverages, medicines and foods that affect the blood clotting process. Among the products: cocoa, chocolate, oily fish, nuts, sunflower seeds, olive and flaxseed oil, dark-colored fruits and berries.
Medications prescribed by your doctor should be taken 2-3 days before rhinoplasty. The last meal on the eve of the operation should be no earlier than 8-10 hours before rhinoplasty.
Today, plastic surgeons practice three options for rhinoplasty:
The best option depends on the purpose of the surgery and the individual characteristics of the patient.
Surgical intervention is carried out in difficult cases when there are congenital anomalies, significant deformations of the shape of the nose and serious damage.
Open rhinoplasty is performed as follows: a plastic surgeon cuts the skin at the septum between the nostrils and at the lateral folds.
It is used much more often. This is a less traumatic way to change the size and shape of the nose. The surgeon makes incisions in the nasal cavity, so the stitches are safely hidden. The closed method allows you to change the bone and cartilage tissue.
Non-surgical nose plastic
Non-surgical nose plastic is also performed. Bumps on the nose can be removed. For non-surgical nose plastics, threads, implants (fillers) or absorbable preparations are used. This type of correction is not used because of the temporary effect and the risk of movement of the injected substance, scarring and / or rupture of the threads.
On average, traditional rhinoplasty takes 60 minutes. The patient stays in the hospital for 24 hours.
Features of the rehabilitation period
The rehabilitation period will depend on the method of rhinoplasty. In the first few days after surgery, weakness and fever are possible.
The recovery period takes 10-14 days. The stitches are placed on the columella and removed after 10 days. The patient must wear a special plaster cast for 7 days.
Sleeping is allowed only on the back, breathing through the mouth. Smoking is prohibited. Do not wet or touch the plaster cast. After its removal, hematomas and slight edema may be present. After a while, they pass on their own. You can evaluate the final result in 6-12 months.
Among the postoperative complications, in addition to edema, there may be slight lacrimation.
Contraindications for rhinoplasty
As a person grows, the shape of the nose changes. Thus, one of the contraindications is age. Rhinoplasty for cosmetic reasons is not performed under 18 years of age. Also, you should not do surgery after 40 years. This is due to the fact that at this age the process of tissue regeneration slows down and the risk of complications increases significantly.
Other contraindications include:
- Diabetes mellitus.
- Pregnancy and lactation.
- Problems with the heart and blood vessels.
- Diseases of the blood, kidneys, liver, thyroid gland.
- Infectious and viral diseases.
- Inflammation of the skin in the area of surgery.

Frequently asked questions and answers about rhinoplasty
Everything you need to know about plastic surgery
Does 3D modeling match the actual result after surgery?
3D modeling gives the patient a visualization of the changes that the surgeon plans to make, but you need to understand that this is a machine that forms the result according to certain vectors, distances, proportions. During the surgical process, the surgeon has much more ability to work out and improve even the smallest details.
How often do patients undergo revision rhinoplasty? Why?
I am quite often having to do repeated surgical correction, there are also a lot of reasons. In a number of patients, the result does not correspond to high expectations, in some patients deformities of the nose appear after operations, but most patients undergo reoperation more for aesthetic reasons, improving certain parameters.
Can rhinoplasty be done at any age?
It all depends on the indications, if this is a reconstruction that affects the patient's life, then yes. If aesthetics - we recommend from 16 years old. The older the patient (the period after 50 years is considered), the longer the rehabilitation period increases, mainly due to related diseases: diabetes, pressure, vascular problems, chronic diseases
Why is it harder to achieve results after repeated surgeries?
This is quite individual, because each person has a different process of healing, scarring and tissue regeneration. In the same way, the result is formed on the basis of internal recovery processes, which is also influenced by the lifestyle and the presence of health complications. The results of repeated corrections are more difficult to predict because the surgeon already works with previously damaged tissues, cartilage, sometimes with a lack of skin flaps, improper fusion of bone tissues and associated inflammatory processes.
How to determine the cost of rhinoplasty?
As with the rest of the surgery, the amount of correction affects the cost. It also affects the price of rhinoplasty, whether it is primary or repeated, the presence of complications, whether reconstructive surgery using cartilage tissue is required, staged recovery, etc.
