Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty)
Often, the structure or size of the nose is not proportionate with the other features on the face. Nose reshaping procedures can help to correct the disproportionate appearance of the nose by altering the size or shape of the nose, the nasal tip, the span of the nostrils, or the angle between the nose and the upper lip.
Successful modern rhinoplasty surgery needs to be customised to the individual. It is imperative that the shape of the new nose is in balance with the other key areas of the face such as the chin, forehead and cheeks. During a consultation, Dr Miroshnik, will use computer morphing technology to show what changes in nasal structure are beneficial in bringing out the best of your facial features.
There are two basic forms of nose reshaping surgery – Open Rhinoplasty and Closed Rhinoplasty. In open rhinoplasty, the nasal skin is lifted off the nasal skeleton to allow for more exposure of the cartilages and bones of the nose. Closed rhinoplasty, on the other hand, involves internal incisions only and the skin of the nose stays in position during the entire procedure. Each of these procedures is described in more detail below.
- Performed as day surgery, where you can go home from the hospital the same day
