When we perform a rhinoplasty we look for natural results that sweeten your facial expression , adapting it to the facial structure to achieve a more balanced appearance.
We look for subtle changes that make your “new” nose proportional without subtracting personality from your appearance.
The best result is when no one notices that you have had surgery, but tell you that you look better.
The purpose of this intervention is to improve the aesthetic aspect of the nose and bring harmony and beauty to the features of the face. It can also be performed for functional reasons, i.e. in cases where the patient cannot breathe properly.
It is possible to combine the two, improving the appearance of the nose while correcting respiratory problems. This intervention is called rhinoseptoplasty.
Generally, the operation on the nose is not painful. It is performed with local anesthetic and sedation or, in some cases, with general anesthetic. The patient is admitted to the clinic for 24 hours.
Patients tend to wear nasal tampons during 48hours. After 7 days the plaster is removed, and they can resume their normal activities.
Rhinoplasty is one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures, due to the fact that the nose is a very important factor in determining the beauty of the face of a person (among both men and women).
While it can be performed at any age, among young people it is of great importance because in addition to providing an aesthetic enhancement, it does wonders for their self-esteem.

This procedure is not painful. The only inconvenience is having to wear plugs on the nostrils for two days after the event.
Once the nasal plugs have been removed, patients feel comfortable.
The latest technology has developed special nasal plugs that can be removed without any inconvenience. As a result, patients feel no pain.
During the first few days, it is normal that the face (in particular around the eyelids) will have a slight inflammation and, in some cases, can present with minor equimosis (soft hematoma) which will disappear during the first week.
Usually, the plaster is removed seven days after the surgery. The removal is usually a painless procedure.
Rhinoplasty is performed under general anaesthesia It is a shallow anaesthesia because we also inject local anaesthetic agent throughout the nasal mucous and recovery is very fast.
Usually, a patient must remain at the clinic for 24 hours following a rhinoplasty so that we can monitor any changes in the patient.
After about two or three days you will be able to resume your normal routine and from the seventh day you remove the plaster you can join your work.
You should not resume physical exercise or sport until one month has passed since the procedure.
You can see approximate results after about two or three weeks. However, it will not be until one month afterwards in which the result is more or less definitive. Your nose may undergo minor changes for months, even a year.
We normally wait until bone growth is complete. This usually occurs between 16 and 18 years. However, the most correct approach would be to observe the end of bone growth in a hand x-ray.
Yes. Normally, we perform aesthetic and functional exploration and if there is a respiratory dysfunction, our clinic otorhinolaryngologist would intervene with the plastic surgeon to correct the aesthetic and functional aspect.
