You may be a candidate for nose reshaping (rhinoplasty) if you have a nose that is cosmetically unattractive or does not “fit” with other facial features. Rhinoplasty may also be indicated for abnormal appearance of the nose as a result of birth defects, injury, or disease. Nose reshaping is intended to produce a more attractive nasal shape and/or a nose in better proportion to other facial features.

Rhinoplasty is done on an outpatient basis under sedation, and local or general anesthesia.

* STANDARD RHINOPLASTY: Incisions are made inside the nostrils. The nasal bones, cartilage, and soft tissues are reshaped to improve the external contour.

* OPEN RHINOPLASTY: Frequently used for difficult or larger noses. Involves one external incision across the columella (strut between the nostrils). Bones, cartilage, and soft tissues are reshaped under direct vision.

* TIP-PLASTY: If only the nasal tip is abnormal, it may be corrected with either a standard or external (open) approach.

Large nostrils may be reduced through tiny incisions at the outer base of the nostrils with either type of rhinoplasty.

Preoperative planning with your plastic surgeon will have determined how the surgery will be performed. Imaging will be performed at Aesthetic Surgery Center of PKU 3rd Hosp in order that you can actually “see” what the result would look like with more or less correction.

An additional procedure that may enhance the result is a chin enlargement . If you need to improve your breathing, correction of a deviated septum (Septoplasty) may also be appropriate.
