Rhinoplasty of the tip of the nose

Nasal tip rhinoplasty involves improving the shape and / or eliminating defects in the tip of the nose. Depending on the anatomical features and the desired result, the operation may require treatment of the cartilage, soft tissues and columella.

before and after rhinoplasty

Thanks to the rhinoplasty of the tip of the nose, you can modify:

  • The thickness of the area above the tip of the nose
  • Tip protrusion (the distance is from the face)
  • Projection of the tip (the angle between the upper lip and the tip of the nose)
  • The position of the nasal septum

Nasal tip surgery is much more complicated than it might seem at first glance. The surgeon must plan his actions very precisely, otherwise the result could be directly opposite to expectations.

The bone and cartilage structure of the tip of the nose has a significant impact on its appearance. An unsuccessful surgery can lead to a distortion not only of the shape of the tip, but also of the shape of the entire nose.

How is nose tip rhinoplasty performed?

The operation is performed under local or general anesthesia and lasts from 1 to 2-3 hours. It is difficult to pinpoint the typical moments of nose tip plastic surgery - almost every operation is unique in its own way.

The same tasks that the surgeon faces in different cases will be solved differently, based on the anatomical structure of the nose, the thickness and shape of the cartilage, the strength of the tissues and other individual characteristics of the patient.

The preparation and recovery process after surgery is not very different from conventional rhinoplasty. It is necessary to stop smoking early and a number of drugs that affect blood clotting and suture healing, as well as undergo a medical examination to identify possible contraindications.

Swelling, bruising, and pain may occur in the first few days after rhinoplasty. Recovery after surgery takes about 1-2 weeks, after which it is advisable to protect the nose from physical influences and hypertension for another 2-3 weeks (in particular, borderline sports),

How much does rhinoplasty cost

The prices of the operation depend on the nature of the changes, the qualifications of the doctor and the prestige of the clinic, as well as a number of other factors.
