Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a nose job or nose reshaping, is a plastic surgery procedure for altering and reconstructing the shape of the nose. Not only can this surgery correct the impaired breathing caused by nasal structural problems, but also it enhances facial harmony and changes the aesthetical appearance of the nose. Due to the reasons and goals behind the rhinoplasty, the treatment typically involves restructuring, reshaping, or reducing the nose’s overall size.

What Are the Different Rhinoplasty Procedures Available?

Various rhinoplasty procedures are suitable, depending on the reasons and goals for your treatment. Each rhinoplasty procedure is carefully planned and unique to the patient’s concerns and requirements. Once you have decided to pursue a rhinoplasty, it is essential to spend time with your doctor to plan the treatment and determine the right technique for you.

Rhinoplasty Surgery Types

Open Rhinoplasty

Open rhinoplasty surgery is a procedure in which the incision used to access the structures of the nose results in broad exposure of the underlying cartilage and bone. Typically, a small incision is made across the underside of the nose that is then connected to incisions made within both nostrils. The skin overlying the nose is lifted up and off the nose’s structural framework, giving the surgeon free access to the nasal area.

Ideal applicants for open rhinoplasty may include:

  • Patients with notably crooked noses
  • People with several factors that make up the reason for the deformed nose
  • One who needs an intensive cartilage graft

• A nasal tip correction needed that requires excellent visuals, such as during revision rhinoplasties

Closed Rhinoplasty

Closed rhinoplasty is an alternative to the open rhinoplasty technique. Instead of exposing the nasal structure, incisions are made inside the nostrils and on the nasal membrane in varying locations to access different parts of the nose framework. In this type of surgery, patients have less swelling and reduced recovery time than the open rhinoplasty technique. Also, the scars after the surgery are invisible.

Ideal closed rhinoplasty patients may include:

  • Those with minor nasal problems or deformities
  • Individuals who do not need much cartilage grafting and nasal tip work

Reduction Rhinoplasty

Reduction rhinoplasty aims to reduce the size of some of the features on your nose. This method involves reducing the size of the bumps on the bridge, shortening an elongated or twisted nasal tip, or reducing wide nostrils. During this technique, the surgeon removes small amounts of bone or cartilage to make your nose more proportionate to the rest of your facial features.

Augmentation Rhinoplasty

In the additional rhinoplasty or augmentation rhinoplasty, the surgeon uses a bone or tissue grafting technique to build up the nasal tip and/or bridge. Augmentation rhinoplasty often involves using cartilage from other parts of the nose, usually the nasal septum. The tissue may also be taken from other areas of the body, such as the ear or rib, if necessary.

Reconstructive Rhinoplasty

Reconstructive rhinoplasty aims to rebuild the nose structure using skin grafts and other advanced methods. This method is suitable for those who have lost all or part of their nose due to an accident or illness. Due to the complex nature of this procedure, multiple surgeries may be required over several months, depending on the nose structure.

Revision Rhinoplasty

Revision rhinoplasty or secondary rhinoplasty is used for patients who have already undergone at least one rhinoplasty procedure in the past and are not satisfied with the outcome of their prior surgery. This method revises either the appearance or functionality of the nose that has been damaged during the previously carried out surgery.

Liquid Rhinoplasty

Nonsurgical rhinoplasty, also called liquid rhinoplasty, is a procedure that consists of injecting dermal fillers, such as hyaluronic acid, underneath the skin to change the shape of the nose temporarily. Liquid rhinoplasties do not use scalpels to change the appearance of the nose, and once the fillers are injected into the nose, they instantly change the nose’s shape and appearance.

Liquid rhinoplasty ideal candidates may include:

  • Individuals who desire a non-surgical way to enhance their noses
  • Patients with minor issues that might benefit from Botox or filler injections Rhinoplasty is not recommended for the following candidates:
  • Anyone not healthy enough to undergo surgery, such as individuals with cardiac and pulmonary health concerns who may be at risk when going under anesthesia
  • People with blood disorders such as hemophilia and coagulation problems
  • Obese individuals, since anesthesia may pose several risks for them.
  • Heavy smokers are required to quit smoking at least two weeks before the surgery.
  • Patients with allergies to injections or Botox® in the case of liquid nose jobs, potentially including nursing and pregnant women.
  • People under the age of 18. However, the aptitude for surgery is deemed suitable on a case-by- case basis, especially in the case of injury or a congenital disability.
  • All forms of rhinoplasty are not recommended for people who are not physically, mentally, or psychologically ready for the procedure.

Treatment Duration

A nose job typically takes between 2–3 hours. For rhinoplasty abroad, patients are generally required to stay in hospital 1–2 nights, followed by a minimum of around four days in a hotel before traveling home.

Recovery time

Normal daily activities can be resumed 5–7 days after the treatment. However, patients should be mindful of not returning to certain strenuous activities too soon after the cosmetic surgery. Within 7–14 days, most bruising and swelling should reduce, and within one month, they should dissipate. The lips and teeth might also be numb but will return to their normal state within approximately two weeks following surgery.

Candidates for closed rhinoplasty surgery should experience much shorter recovery times. They can return to their normal activities about two or three days after the surgery and the choice to return to work in approximately 5 to 7 days. Less swelling and bruising should be evident.

Liquid rhinoplasty patients can often resume their regular activities right away, although there might be evidence of injection marks, swelling, and bruising.


Success is often dependent on several external factors such as the quality of the nasal tissue, cartilage, and bone, the healing process, and your own goals and expectations going into the treatment.
