Procedure details: Rhinoplasty

Procedure details: Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is considered a highly complex operation. Working on the nose can be challenging as it is situated centrally on the face, with other features always within sight.


Moreover, the surgeon who tends to the operation will need to have all the knowledge, expertise, and hand skills to perform the precise rhinoplasty due to the complex anatomy a nose has. In the case of missing one of these key attributes, there is an element of risk as the procedure can result in very distressing outcomes that are problematic to recover.


Your surgeon may need to modify the shape of cartilage or nasal bones in some cases. For minor corrections, the surgeon may use cartilage taken from inside your nose. If you have a septum deviation or bigger turbinates, your surgeon will correct these problems too.

How to prepare for Rhinoplasty?

You have a dedicated team of patient advisors, nurses, and your surgeon to support you throughout the entire journey, and after it. However, Rhinoplasty is a surgery that demands you to take several steps to help ensure that your treatment goes as smoothly as possible. Avoiding some points can help you recover faster, and also minimize the risk of complications.

3 Weeks Before

3 Weeks Before

It is essential to provide your surgeon all the details regarding medicines you have been prescribed prior to your surgery.


You should stop smoking instantly. Smoking slows the recovery after surgery and boosts your risks of post-surgical complications. All other tobacco products and electronic cigarettes are equally harmful and must be avoided.


Your skin condition is one of the most important factors for your surgery. If you have a thick skin, it would be better to plan a facial skin care treatment up to one week prior to surgery.

1 Weeks Before

If you are taking any blood thinner medication (such as coraspin, aspirin, ecopirin, coumadin, clexan), then they should be discontinued.

If you are thick skinned patient, make sure you get the facial treatment done which you had planned 3 weeks prior to your surgery.

After the Rhinoplasty

Your Rhinoplasty will be carried out with the utmost care by your surgeon and you can be sure that the same standard of care will continue during regular post operative checks to ensure a smooth recovery.


Soreness and swelling are likely to occur for a few days after surgery, with no bruising expected. However, it is possible in some cases, that minor bruising is possible.

In most cases, the internal silicon supports remain in place for one to five days after surgery. For protection and support, the doctor places a splint on your nose. Both of them are removed latest before your final check.

Your surgeon will give you comprehensive pre-operative guidance before the operation, also give you directions and recommendations afterwards. Follow all of these guidelines to help ensure your ease, prevent risks, and speed up the recovery.
