Rhinoplasty at Sakra world Hospital

Surgeons at Sakra believe that a Rhinoplasty is a lot more than a cosmetic procedure done for aesthetic enhancement or beautification alone.  It requires an equal level of seriousness in planning and care as any other surgery of the body, from the doctor as well as the patient. It is generally done as an Outpatient / Ambulatory procedure under local or general anesthesia. May occasionally require hospitalization for a day.

Similar to any other surgery, surgical complications like bleeding or infection, and reactions to medications or anesthesia are possible side effects of a rhinoplasty surgery. Our surgeons emphasize that similar to any other surgery, rhinoplasty also requires good post op care. Generally it takes about 2 weeks to heal completely even though the patient can resume his daily activities within 2 days.

What is Rhinoplasty?

Often known as the “Nose Job”, rhinoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure which involves reshaping, resizing or reconstruction of the nose in order to either enhance esthetics or restore the form and function of the nose.

What does a Rhinoplasty procedure do?

Rhinoplasty involves correction of:

  • Length of the nose
  • Width of the nose
  • A deformity in the tip or bridge of the nose, like drooping tip or visible humps and depressions in the bridge of the nose
  • Shape of the nostrils
  • Nasal blocks due to septal deviation
  • Correction of irregular dorsum e. g. Humps/ deviations
  • Nasal asymmetry
  • Obstruction in airway or breathing
  • Congenital deformities

Types of Rhinoplasty

Reduction Rhinoplasty - this type of rhinoplasty is primarily to alter the size of the nose, correction of width of the nose or a bridge bump, or altering the nostril size and shape to bring them in proportion to the rest of the face.

Augmentation Rhinoplasty – this type involves increasing the dimensions of the nose by adding structural material or grafts for aesthetic and functional enhancement purposes.

Post-traumatic Rhinoplasty – as the name suggests, this type deals with the post- traumatic deformities of the nose, like deviation, asymmetry or even obstruction in airway and breathing.

Ethnic Rhinoplasty - The Ethnic Rhinoplasty takes into consideration the particular nasal characteristics based on the patient’s ethnicity. In a way all of the rhinoplasties can be considered as ethnic rhinoplasties as a special care is always taken towards maintaining the ethnic features of the face while correcting any kind of nasal deformity.

Who is the right candidate for a Rhinoplasty?

A person can be considered as an ideal candidate for Rhinoplasty if he/she has:

  • Good general health
  • Full grown facial features, except for cases where breathing is impaired and in trauma cases.
  • Any breathing or airway problems
  • Any kind of aesthetic nasal deformity
  • Realistic expectations from the cosmetic treatment

Who is the right person to perform a Rhinoplasty?

A perfect rhinoplasty is said to be done when post- surgery, people know there is an appealing change but are unable to point at the actual spot. Such an outcome is possible only when surgery is performed by the right person.

A cosmetic surgeon, who has the essential qualification, knowledge, acumen and the experience for doing such a technique sensitive surgery is the ideal person to put one’s trust in. It is not a piece of wardrobe that one can discard if it does not look good. One can play with clothes and colors but not with body parts.
