Nose reshaping is surgery to improve the appearance and proportion of your nose, thus enhancing facial harmony and self confidence. While the motivation for nose reshaping may be to change the function of the nose, it is usually performed for cosmetic purposes. It can change the width of your nose, reshape the bridge or tip of the nose, or change the angle between your nose and upper lip. Nose reshaping is also known as rhinoplasty, nose surgery or nose job.

There is no one procedure for nose reshaping. Each operation is customised for the specific anatomy and goals of the person undergoing the procedure. Nose reshaping surgery may be done inside the nose or through a small external incision at the base of the nose. Your surgeon will likely readjust the bone and cartilage underneath your skin to produce the desired result.

After surgery, you will usually need to wear a nasal splint for the first week. Expect swelling and some bruising around the eyes, which may last up to two weeks. Between one and two weeks after the surgery, the bandages, splints and any stitches should be removed. Most patients are able to return to non-physical work a week or so after surgery. It may take your nose six months to completely heal and for all of the swelling to go down.

Risks specific to nose reshaping are:

  • Nasal blockage caused by swelling inside the nose
  • Injury to your septum, the structure that separates your nostrils
  • A raised scar at the base of the nose
  • Recurring nosebleeds
  • Permanent numbness in and around your nose
  • Skin problems or skin breakdown from bandaging or from grafting materials being exposed through thin skin

Make sure to discuss with your doctor how these risks apply to you. You can help minimise certain risks by following the advice and instructions of your plastic surgeon, both before and after your surgery.
