As the focal point of the face, a problem with the nose is often a major problem for an individuals self-esteem and confidence. A crooked or disproportionate nose can distort the proportions of the whole face. At The Belvedere Clinic we have a solution for all types of nose reshaping that not only improves the image of the nose but of the whole face.
A nose reshaping operation normally involves separating the soft tissue that lies on top of the nose from the bone and cartilage underneath. Depending on the operation, the surgeon might break the nose bone and reposition it, and/or reshape the cartilage.
The procedure differs depending on what the individual patient wants to get out of their rhinoplasty surgery but the majority of the scarring will be inside the nose and so not visible. Your surgeon will be able to give you greater detail on your surgery at your consultation.
Procedure Time: 1.5-2 hours
No of Procedures Needed: 1
Length of Results: Permanent
Recovery Time: 5-6 weeks
After your Rhinoplasty procedure you will have a plaster of paris (POP) over your nose, which will be removed about 10 days after but must be kept dry at all times prior to removal. 4 weeks after the POP has been removed massage the nose gently, working with finger tips from the nasal tip upwards. You can clean the nostrils gently with cotton buds soaked in warm saline after 10 days and should avoid sneezing, coughing or anything that may increase pressure around the nose. You should not consume alcohol or take aspirin for 10 days. Your surgeon will discuss this in detail with you however if you have any queries feel free to call us on the number below.
Helpful advice – It is worth anticipating your own reaction to the first sight of yourself and your new nose. To start with, you will look rather strange in the mirror and not quite ‘you’ because of your different nose. Remember that it takes a few days for your mind’s eye to adjust itself to your new appearance and to recognise it as ‘you’.
