Definition Of Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is surgery of the nose to correct a nasal deformity. The nose may be crooked, too large or too wide.


As soon as skeletal growth is complete: approximately 15 in girls and 15-17 in boys.

Surgical technique

Surgery consists of lowering a bump on the bridge of the nose, narrowing the nasal bones to give a sculpted look, lifting and reducing the tip or narrowing the nostrils.

The closed technique is used 99.9% of the time. External incisions are used to narrow the nostrils. The incision is made in the crease where the nostril meets the face and is usually invisible.


Create a natural look without irregularities. Each surgery is tailored to the individual’s nose.
Every nose is different and so each surgery creates a nose that fits your face, not the same nose for everybody. Nobody will know you had surgery. You should look like a better version of yourself- -The same “you” but with a more attractive nose.

Surgical time and recovery

Surgery takes 1-2 hours and there is a bandage on for two days. All stitches are out in 4 days. The patient can go back to work or school in 4-5 days. No contact sports for 6 weeks. Depending on the procedure, there may be a splint on the nose for 8 days. Small packs inside the nostrils are removed the day after surgery. The patient can go back to work in just over a week.
