NOSE CORRECTION

"Nose jobs" (rhinoplasty) are the most sophisticated of all cosmetic surgeries, because the nose is a completely hollow structure.
The surgeon has to change the shape of the nose, while preserving intact both its support (outside walls) and its breathing function (inside wall).
Our Specialized Doctors uses a very new technique : the mini-dissection.
Tiny incisions and minimum surgery are used to achieve maximum results with minimal swelling.

Nose surgery consists of removing the excess cartilage and gently filing down the excess bone.
The scars are hidden inside the nose. If it is necessary to decrease the size of the nostrils, a tiny scar is left at the base of each nostril.
Frequently, implants made of a synthetic sponge-like material may be used to augment parts of the nose and to improve the final result of the surgery. Infection of these implants is possible but uncommon. If an infection does occur, the implant is removed and replaced again a few months later. All stitches are absorbable.
To prevent pain, a new type of absorbable pack, like gelatin, is placed inside the nose and will gradually dissolve during the first week following surgery. On the average, nose surgery is performed within one to two hours.
At the end of the operation, a small plaster cast is applied to the nose. After a week, the cast is painlessly removed. Most of the swelling and discoloration around the eyes tend to disappear within the following week.
Your nose will continue to improve for at least a year following surgery. Therefore, do not expect to see your final result when the cast is removed. Do not be alarmed if the shape of your nose keeps changing during the first few months.
On the average, you are presentable and may return to work one to two weeks after surgery. Numbness of the upper teeth and mild nasal blockage may be experienced for a few days to a few weeks following surgery. Thick nasal skin makes the surgery more difficult, limiting somewhat its final result and prolonging recovery. This is because thick skin does not shrink as much as thin skin (therefore the nose cannot be made much smaller).
