What is a Rhinoplasty?
Also known as a nose job, Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that is performed with the goal of changing the shape, size and profile of the nose permanently. The procedure is also performed to address nasal functional issues such as breathing difficulties, or a deviated septum among others.
When Should You Consider The Advanced Rhinoplasty Clinic at King’s
The Rhinoplasty Clinic deals with a range of needs including:
- Primary Rhinoplasty: Avoid the trauma of a botched rhinoplasty by going to a renowned specialist, who’s unique technique provides optimal outcomes.
- Revision Rhinoplasty gone wrong: This would involve cases where a patient has done more than two Rhinoplasty procedures i.e. a primary Rhinoplasty and a revision Rhinoplasty for which the results were not as expected, and the functional as well as aesthetic abilities of the nose have been compromised.
- Ethnic Rhinoplasty: An ethnic rhinoplasty is a specialized form of nose surgery in which the nose is altered to suit the patient’s face without diminishing the patient’s ethnic characteristics. This takes an especially skilled and experienced ethnic rhinoplasty surgeon.
- Congenital nasal defects: These kinds of defects mean the patient was born with them. They include deformities that affect the structure and function of the nose, which require a multi-disciplinary team of experts to resolve.
- Former nasal trauma: This includes complicated nasal injuries that led to physical deformity of the nose, as well as functional.
Also known as nose reshaping surgery, rhinoplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure, which aims at correcting and reconstructing the nose by modifying the bone or cartilage of the nose. It can also be done for medical reasons to fix breathing issues or to upgrade its functions altogether.
Rhinoplasty is done under general anesthesia or sedation, where the patient doesn’t feel anything during the procedure. After the procedure and the patient wakes up, he or she might experience some degree of aches, tenderness, congestion, and bruising due to the sinus pressure. However, you will be prescribed some over-the-counter pain medication to help with these effects.
Just like with every other procedure, surgical or non-surgical, there are risks involved. The biggest risk involved in a Rhinoplasty, also known as a ‘Rhinoplasty gone wrong’ involve the patient’s nose getting permanent deformities whereby he or she will need several advanced revision rhinoplasty procedures to correct it.
Rhinoplasty can be considered for those patients who have reached full facial skeletal as well as mental maturity, for instance at the age of 18 years when the face has reached its adult size therefore, from a technical perspective, rhinoplasty can be offered. However, the young patient would need to weigh up the pros and cons of having the shape of the nose permanently changed, as this is a big decision, and is essentially irreversible
A good Rhinoplasty procedure is dependent on many factors including if the procedure is primary (meaning the first time to have the surgery) or if it’s a revision Rhinoplasty (to correct a Rhinoplasty gone bad). Others include the main reason for the procedure, the experience and expertise of the plastic surgeon, and the location of the clinic. On average, the cost for a Rhinoplasty in Dubai averages between AED 35,000 and AED 45,000. This is just the cost of one surgery. If the patient needs multiple surgeries, for instance in cases of correcting a rhinoplasty gone wrong, the cost will be higher.
The recovery, also known as the downtime, is dependent on the type of Rhinoplasty done. There are two types of Rhinoplasty – open Rhinoplasty and closed Rhinoplasty. Either way, the recovery time is between 10 days to 14 days, which means the patient can go back to work, and the swelling has substantially gone down.
