Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a nose job, is cosmetic surgery to reshape the nose and is a common procedure our cosmetic surgeons offer at our clinic in Melbourne. A nose can be enlarged or reduced in size, the nasal bridge made higher or the nasal hump removed and/or the shape of the tip enhanced.

The transformative power of Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty surgery can successfully alter:

Nose size in relation to facial balance. The nose may be reduced or enlarged in size.

Nose width at the bridge or in the size and position of the nostrils

Nose profile with visible humps or depressions on the bridge

Nasal tip that is enlarged or bulbous, drooping, upturned or hooked

Size of the Nose

Rhinoplasty can help to change the size of the nose. Some people may feel as though their nose is too large and is disproportionate to other facial features. In this case, surgery is pursued to reduce the size of the nose and help it to fit in with other features of the face (reduction rhinoplasty). Other patients may feel as though their nose is too small for their face and may want to increase the size of their nose and this is termed augmentation rhinoplasty.

Nasal Bridge Re-shaping

Some patients elect to have rhinoplasty to reduce the visibility of visible humps or bumps on the bridge of their nose. In general, this kind of procedure will involve shaving the bump to reduce the size and create a smoother nasal profile. Rhinoplasty can also help to improve the appearance of indentations in the nasal bridge, and may also be an option for people who feel as though the bridge of their nose is too wide. Rhinoplasty can also help to improve the appearance of a crooked nasal bridge. A crooked nasal bridge is usually the result of a previous nasal fracture or other type of injury.

Changes in the Angle of the Nose

Some patients seek rhinoplasty to address issues with the angle between the nose and forehead, or between the nose and the upper lip. Some may feel that these angles produce asymmetry, or that the angles are either too sharp or too flat. During the consultation, the surgeon will measure these angles to determine if there is a problem, and they will discuss the best options for addressing problems with the angle of the nose.

Tip Concerns

Reshaping of the tip of the nose is another reason that people might consider a rhinoplasty. This procedure can address a number of issues, including a large or bulbous tip, drooping, a hooked appearance, and an upturned nose tip. Surgery can correct these issues, with some of them requiring considerably less recovery time than those that can only be addressed with more invasive procedures. This type of procedure is also known as tip or partial rhinoplasty.

Learn about the types of nose job procedures

There are 2 main options for the procedure, Open Rhinoplasty & Closed Rhinoplasty.

  • Open rhinoplasty surgery involves a small incision at the base of the nose (external incision across the columella) to lift the skin, thus allowing direct view in sculpturing, correcting and re-supporting the tissues of the nose.
  • Closed Rhinoplasty involves a small hidden incision within the nostrils and most likely a nasal speculum will be used to view the nasal structures within.

Following the surgery the patient is required to wear nasal splint/adhesive tapes over the nose for one week and nostril retainers in some cases, to maintain the position of the new bridge, nasal tip & nostrils and this will also help control the amount of swelling.

Rhinoplasty is sometimes done together with septoplasty, which is surgery of the nasal septum, the wall of cartilage and bone dividing the air passages. After the surgery, a protective plastic splint may be applied to the nose to help maintain its new shape. This is usually worn for one week after surgery.

Hospitalisation is not required, and recovery time ranges from 1 to 3 weeks depending on the degree of reshaping performed.
