What does Rhinoplasty consist in?

Rhinoplasty (nose surgery)

The nose plays a major role in facial aesthetics. Often the size or shape of the nose can look out of balance with the other facial features and in this way negatively affect the overall harmony of the face.

Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, is a minimally invasive surgical procedure aimed at correcting functional and aesthetic defects of the nose.

With rhinoplasty we can:

  • Increase, reduce or change the shape of any part of the nose: there are many nose types that require nose surgery because of their shape or size, such as a bulbous or wide nose, a hook nose or a flat nose, among others.
  • Correct traumatic defects.
  • Resolve some respiratory problems.

The Maxillofacial Institute and Rhinoplasty

The facial aesthetics experts at the Maxillofacial Institute always consider these four rules:

  • Any surgical modification of the nose will directly impact its appearance and functionality. These two components are completely inseparable. An aesthetic improvement is also a functional improvement.
  • The aesthetic results after cosmetic nose surgery must respect the naturalness and expression of the other facial features.
  • Nose surgery is a minimally invasive procedure, with outpatient sedation or general anaesthetic depending on the case, and it does not require hospitalisation if surgery is only performed on the tip of the nose.
  • The specialist will share a virtual aesthetic prediction with the patient in order to increase their confidence in the results and to ensure a more precise surgery.
