Rhinoplasty in Mumbai

Cosmetic surgery of the nose involves reshaping of the nose. It can reduce or increase size, remove a hump, change the shape of the tip or bridge, narrow the span of the nostrils, or change the angle between the nose and upper lip. It can also correct a birth defect or injury, or help relieve some breathing problems. It can dramatically alter the appearance of the entire face. A nose job is a commonly performed cosmetic surgery procedure for both men and women.

Why is Rhinoplasty performed?

Rhinoplasty surgery can change:

  • Nose size, in relation to the other facial structures
  • Nose width, at the bridge
  • Nose profile, with visible humps or depressions on the bridge
  • Nasal tip, that is large or bulbous, drooping, or too upturned
  • Nostrils that are large, wide or upturned
  • Nasal asymmetry and deviation

Procedure For Rhinoplasty

During surgery the skin of the nose is separated from its supporting framework of bone and cartilage, which is then sculpted to the desired shape. Then the skin is redraped over the new framework. Patients should not smoke at all at least 10-20 days before and after surgery. It is done under general anesthesia. Surgery takes 1-3 hours. Patients spend 3 days in clinic.

Recovery timeframe

Recovery from nose surgery is a gradual process. Basic recovery is within about 14 days. In the first few days after surgery there may be some bleeding and some pain (which can be controlled with medication). Swelling and bruising around the eyes will increase for 42 to 72 hours, then mostly disappear within 15 days from the surgery.

Special bandage must be worn on nose for 24-72 hours and plaster on nose for 11-15 days. Recommended stay in Prague and back to work in 7-14 days. Glasses often cannot be worn for 4-8 weeks. Activity should be minimised for 3-5 days after surgery, strenuous exercise avoided for 2-3 weeks and you should be careful with the nose for 8 weeks. In some cases some barely noticeable swelling is present for several months. There is no visible scarring.
