Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure that changes the shape of the nose and improves its function. The procedure alters and reconstructs the nose in an efficient manner. There are two types of rhinoplasty: cosmetic surgery and reconstructive surgery. Cosmetic surgery focuses on changing the appearance solely whereas reconstructive surgery restores the form and functions of the nose. Reconstructive rhinoplasty can effectively resolve nasal injuries, birth defects, breathing problems, and even previously failed rhinoplasties.

During the consultation with the doctor, he/she will start the meeting by talking about your goals. The doctor will ask what about the nose bothers you and what kind of changes you want. It is important to understand that there is no such thing as a perfect nose. Thus, the doctor will try to understand your needs and describe what kind of changes you should expect from the procedure.
Furthermore, the doctor will check the bone and cartilage of the nose and also evaluate other facial features. Only after the evaluation can the doctor tell if your expectations from rhinoplasty are realistic or not.
In the physical examination, the doctor examines the skin thickness, nasal valves, osteogenic and cartilaginous disorders, lipid glands, etc. The pre-surgery examinations are necessary to ensure that you are an ideal candidate for the procedure.
The surgeon may also suggest tests like imaging tests, blood tests, electrocardiography, and CT scan for further evaluation.
Each surgical procedure is unique. Thus, the steps are customized according to the specific anatomy and goals of the individual. The procedure involves:
As soon as the procedure is complete, you will be transferred into the observation room. The staff will monitor you until you wake up, and you will also get discharged on the same day if there are no signs of complications.
To prepare you for rhinoplasty, the doctor will give you clear instructions. These instructions will include the following points:
Once the surgery is scheduled, you will also need someone to accompany you on the day of surgery.
Similar to any other major surgery, rhinoplasty also carries risks like:
These risks can be mitigated by the plastic surgeon effectively. That’s why it is often recommended that you choose an experienced surgeon to undergo rhinoplasty. They will ensure that the surgery is performed safely and you get the best possible results.
After surgery, there will be chances of complications, such as:
These complications can also be avoided if you pay attention to post-surgery care and follow the doctor’s instructions precisely. If any of these complications arise, you should immediately contact the doctor and seek help from them.
After having rhinoplasty, you will have to take complete rest on the first day. The doctor will advise you to keep your head raised higher than your chest to keep the bleeding and swelling minimal.
In the beginning, your nose may feel congested due to swelling or the splints that are placed inside the nose. The internal dressing will stay in place for a week after the surgery. The doctor may also use an external splint to protect and support your nose.
In the first few days after surgery, you may experience slight bleeding or mucus drainage. If gauze is placed under your nose to absorb the drainage, the doctor will also instruct you on how to change the gauze.
Along with all this, the surgeon will create a recovery guide that will consist of tips and instructions for post-surgery care. A dietician chart will also be included in the guide to ensure that you eat healthy foods that will help in faster recovery.
Most people choose to undergo rhinoplasty for any of the following reasons:
Many people misunderstand that nose jobs are only done for cosmetic reasons. However, it can also be done for medical reasons. While some may need surgical repair of their nose to resolve a problem, others may just wish to change the shape and size of their nose.
Though rhinoplasty is considered a cosmetic treatment, it has both aesthetic and health-related benefits.
Rhinoplasty is primarily a cosmetic procedure but also involves reconstruction. Changing the shape of the nose requires some reconstruction work which also provides relief from issues like breathing problems.
Some common side effects that people usually experience after rhinoplasty are-
No, overnight stay is usually not required after rhinoplasty surgery. The procedure is carried out on an outpatient basis and the patient is discharged a few hours later.
Typically, general anesthesia is used for rhinoplasty. Due to this, the patient is asleep during the entire procedure.
Yes, you can get a revision if you wish to further make changes in the shape of your nose. The plastic surgeon will look at your nose and determine whether or not the procedure will be safe for you.
Many people don’t know this, but there is a non-surgical form of rhinoplasty known as liquid rhinoplasty. It temporarily addresses the dorsal hump (small bump), asymmetry, and drooping nasal tip.
In this procedure, the surgeon injects fillers into the nose that improves the contours of the nose and reshape it. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is used for the procedure, which is also used for cheeks and lips.
Though it is a safe and effective alternative to surgery, the results of liquid rhinoplasty are not long-lasting. You will have to get more treatments to maintain the results.
Also known as external rhinoplasty, this procedure involves making a small incision in the columella to separate the nostrils. Then the doctor gets access to the underlying bone and cartilage. As the entire structure is exposed during the procedure, the surgeon can reshape the framework with higher precision. The open technique is usually preferred when the patient’s nose is crooked or a marked reduction or enhancement needs to be done in the nasal tip. This approach may leave a scar behind but it usually fades away with time and becomes barely noticeable.
Also known as endonasal rhinoplasty, this surgery is more intricate as it is performed by making incisions inside the nostrils so that they are completely hidden. An incision is made in both left and right nostrils, and the changes in the shape and size are made with minimal complications. The closed technique is less invasive and causes no visible scarring.
The recovery rate after rhinoplasty is different for each patient. The swelling often takes several months to disappear. And after a while, the patient himself/herself stops noticing the swelling. The patient can resume daily activities after 4-5 weeks with mandatory precautionary steps. With proper care, you will recover within the given time.
Generally, the results of a nose job may take up to a year to appear. But you should remember that the healing time and final results timeline varies from patient to patient. If minimal work is done on the nose, the final results will appear sooner. However, if major changes are made, the nose may take a few months to heal completely and the final results will appear within a year or so.
On 4th August 2021, a patient named Akash Koswal came to us wanting to undergo rhinoplasty because of an injury he had during his childhood. The nose had a bump in the middle and was also slightly deviated. Dr. Gaurav Shalya handled the case and discussed the expectations from the surgery with the patient. Some tests were recommended to the patient, which he had on the next day. And the doctor identified him as an ideal candidate for the procedure and discussed whether he wanted to undergo open or closed rhinoplasty. He chose open surgery, and the doctor explained what the surgery entails.
His surgery was planned for 9th August. We prepared everything in advance for the patient. The surgery took place on the same day and took around 2 hours to complete. Dr. Gaurav corrected the deviation in the septum and also reshaped the nose as asked by the patient. He was discharged on the same day. The doctor gave him a detailed guide to help him recover faster. He visited again for a follow-up after 7 days. The stitches and splint were removed from the nose. His nose was examined carefully, and the doctor ensured that he was recovering properly.
The good thing is that Akash was very obedient to the doctor’s instructions, due to which he recovered completely within a month. The swelling on his nose is barely noticeable, and the scar is also disappearing gradually. It has been more than 2 months since his surgery, and the final results are yet to be seen. But as of now, he is happy with the surgery and waiting patiently to see the final results.

I will forever be grateful to Dr. Purodha Prasad and Pristyn Care, not only for her medical expertise but for the compassionate and understanding manner she displayed while listening to my complaints from start to finish. Prior to seeing the doctor, I had feelings of insecurity as well as fear regarding an anticipated surgical procedure. I can only say those feelings disappeared once the doctor, in her very kind way, explained the procedure and how much better I would feel once the surgery was completed. Additionally, I have medical issues that are related to my needed Septoplasty that had to be addressed prior to my undergoing surgery. He made it a point to contact and discuss these issues with my other doctors before agreeing to perform the operation. Her thoroughness and steadfast approach to my needs was the key to knowing that I was in the best of hands. It has now been a few days since surgery, and I can honestly say I am happy, I am pleased, and I will forever be indebted to Dr. Purodha Prasad. I hit the jackpot when choosing her to be my surgeon. The results that I have received made a significant change in how I feel physically and emotionally. I feel pretty, I feel confident and just as important, I can finally breathe easily. Dr. Purodha, you are my hero! It would be unfair for me to complete this review without mentioning the wonderful office staff of Pristyn Care that works along with her. Specially thanks to Manav Gupta and Abhishek Tirpathi and Nancy as well Each and every staff member was not only pleasant, but extremely efficient!
