Aesthetic nose surgery (rhinoplasty) or nose reshaping surgery is the most commonly applied plastic surgery surgery. Aesthetic nose surgery can shrink or enlarge your nose, change the shape of the tip or bridge of the nose, narrow the width of your nostrils, or change the angle between your nose and upper lip. It can also correct a congenital or injury-related deformity, or relieve some breathing problems.

Many surgeons prefer to delay surgery until teenagers have completed their development. This waiting period is around 14 -15 years old for young girls and a little longer for boys. It is important to consider the social and spiritual adjustment of young people to ensure that the decision to operate is one that they want to implement, not the family.


Good communication between you and your doctor is essential and very important. At the first meeting, the surgeon will ask you what you want your nose to look like or look like; will examine the structure of your nose and face and explain the possibilities for you. The structure of your nasal bones and cartilages, the shape of your face, the thickness of your skin, your age and your expectations are the main topics of discussion.


Aesthetic nose surgery usually takes an hour or two. The process of reshaping the nose will vary depending on the problem in the nose and the technique used by the surgeon. Finally, the skin will be adapted over the created roof.


For the first 24 hours after your surgery, you will feel swollen, your nose may hurt, or you may have a mild headache.

You will notice that the bruising and swelling around your eyes becomes most noticeable after 2 or 3 days; Cold compress application will reduce this swelling and make you feel a little better. Most swelling and bruising will disappear within the first week or more. During the first few days after the surgery, there is usually a very slight leakage from the nostrils and you may feel a slight congestion in your nose for a few weeks.

If there is a tampon in the nose, it will be removed after 1-2 days and you will feel much more comfortable. By the end of the first or sometimes the second week, all dressings and the plaster splint on your nose will be removed.

Most patients with rhinoplasty are up and about within two days and can return to school or work that is not too strenuous a week after the surgery. However, a few weeks will pass before you can fully return to your daily routine.
