A nose job ( Rhinoplasty ) is a plastic surgery procedure aimed at correcting and reconstructing the shape of the nose, enhancing its aesthetic appearance as well as restoring the nasal functions. It can also be performed to correct a deviated septum. The results of a nose job are extremely rewarding and great for your self esteem. A Rhinoplasty procedure can reshape the tip, bridge, or whole profile of your nose, and may even help with breathing if you are having difficulties. There are three main types of Rhinoplasty:
- Standard Rhinoplasty which is a full nose correction of the bridge, nose tip and nostrils.
- Septo-rhinoplasty which is a full nose correction, including the alteration of the nasal septum (the cartilage partition in the nose)
- Rhino-tip which is a correction of the tip and nostrils.
Depending on your expectations and requirements, Dr Bugra will recommend the most suitable procedure for the results you wish to achieve.
Rhinoplasty and Septo-rhinoplasty surgeries are performed under general anaesthetic and can take up to 2 hours. You will need an overnight stay in the hospital for monitoring. The Rhino-tip correction procedure may be suitable for local anaesthetic with sedation and you may be able to return to your hotel on the same day as your treatment. For a standard Rhinoplasty, Dr Bugra will make incisions inside your nose to be able to make alterations to the bone structure. With a Rhino-tip procedure Dr Bugra will operate on the cartilage inside your nose, either removing or reshaping parts of it to give the desired shape.
Whichever surgery you are having, you will be left with no visible scarring. After being discharged, you will need to wear a protective splint across your nose for 7-10 days.
We advise that you take at least a week off work, depending on the nature of your occupation and what better way to recuperate than at a luxury hotel in sunny Cyprus.
Dr Bugra will advise you on when to gradually introduce your daily/weekly activities.
