What Is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job, is a surgical procedure designed to reshape and enhance the nose’s appearance. At The One Clinic, our skilled surgeons can address a variety of concerns related to the size, shape, and symmetry of the nose, including:
A crooked or asymmetrical nose
A bulbous or drooping nasal tip
A hump or bump on the bridge of the nose
A narrow or wide nose bridge
A deviated septum
Our rhinoplasty treatment options include the following:
Closed Rhinoplasty: This technique involves making incisions inside the nose, which allows for a faster recovery and minimal visible scarring.
Open Rhinoplasty: This technique involves making an incision across the columella, which is the skin between the nostrils. This approach allows for greater access to the nasal structure and is often used for more complex cases.
Rhinoplasty can improve the face’s balance and symmetry, creating a more harmonious and attractive appearance. It can also enhance the function of the nose by correcting structural abnormalities and breathing problems. Furthermore, rhinoplasty can help individuals feel more confident and comfortable with their appearance, positively impacting their personal and professional lives.
The best candidates for rhinoplasty are people who are unhappy with the appearance of their noses. However, they should be in good health, have a fully developed nose, and be at least 18 years of age.
After rhinoplasty, patients may experience swelling and bruising around the nose and eyes, which can be relieved with pain medication and rest. Using cold compresses or ice packs to help minimize swelling is recommended.
Most patients can return to work and normal activities within 1-2 weeks, depending on the extent of the procedure.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What are the reasons someone might get rhinoplasty?
There are many reasons someone might choose to have rhinoplasty. Some common reasons include improving the appearance of the nose (e.g., reducing a bump or making the nose more symmetrical), correcting breathing problems, or repairing damage to the nose caused by injury or disease.
What happens during a rhinoplasty procedure?
The specifics of a rhinoplasty procedure can vary depending on the individual’s needs and goals, but generally, the surgeon will make incisions inside or outside the nose and then reshape the bone and cartilage to achieve the desired result. The procedure can be done under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation.
Can I wear glasses after rhinoplasty?
It’s generally recommended that patients avoid wearing glasses for several weeks after rhinoplasty, as the weight of the glasses can put pressure on the nose and disrupt the healing process. Your surgeon will provide specific instructions on when it’s safe to resume wearing glasses
