The latest trend in rhinoplasty surgery here in Australia is all about the “natural” look far removed from the 80 ′ s “operated look” found in so many Hollywood stars. Surgery of the nose is the most popular of all plastic and cosmetic surgery operations. The ideal patients for a rhinoplasty are those people who are looking for an improvement in the way they look, not seeking flawlessness. Rhinoplasty can be performed on its own, or commonly combined with breast surgery in younger patients or Facelift/eyelift surgery in older patients.
The physicians at Newcastle Rhinoplasty are Renowned Specialist Plastic Surgeon with an interest in Rhinoplasty for cosmetic and functional purposes. Dr Ben has performed around 750 cosmetic Rhinoplasty cases. Dr Bright performs both cosmetic Rhinoplasty as well as functional Septoplasty and Turbinoplasty for breathing problems.
The ideal age for Rhinoplasty is in between 20-40. Between the ages of 16-20 the surgeon has to make an assessment based on physical and psychological maturity. After the age of 40 the Rhinoplasty surgeon needs to take the patient’s skin quality into account as the cosmetic result.
Rhinoplasty Newcastle Nose Surgery: Modern Approach
Rhinoplasty: Comes from the Greek word: Rhinos “Nose” and Plassein, “to shape”. Therefore a “nose job” is cosmetic surgery of the nose and it is one of the more common of all plastic surgery procedures.
The present-day Australian trend in Rhinoplasty is the “natural” look and NOT the upturned and “pixie” look of the 1980s. However, if you wish for a beautiful or Hollywood or “sculpted” nose, please talk to your Newcastle Rhinoplasty specialist doctor at the time of your nose surgery consultation.

Choosing the Best Rhinoplasty Surgeon
Rhinoplasty is one of the most difficult operations in cosmetic surgery. In Australia Rhinoplasty is carried out by cosmetic surgeons. Your ideal choice in choosing a surgeon is word of mouth, personal before and after photos, and your personal research . You should get cost estimations of Newcastle Rhinoplasty by Dr Bright. Please research your chosen surgeon thoroughly and specifically for the Cosmetic Rhinoplasty procedure. Just because a surgeon can perform a breast enlargement, doesn’t mean he is a great nasal surgeon. Remember, this is a very difficult operation.
Recovery Post Nose Job Surgery:
During the first two to three days soon after Rhinoplasty surgery, the face is going to feel puffy, your nose could ache, and you may experience headaches. There will be swelling and bruising around the eyes, worsening for around four days. Some patients even get very swollen lips and cheeks including difficulty smiling. All of these symptoms will subside within 3 weeks of the nose procedure. By the end of one week all nasal packing, dressings, internal and external splints and stitches from the Rhinoplasty should be removed.
You will feel substantially better in your second week of recovery. The most uncomfortable part of the recovery after the Rhinoplasty operations is the inability to breathe through the nose for several days due to swelling. This usually improves within four weeks of undergoing the nose job procedure. Expect some swelling around your eyes for several weeks. As the swelling subsides, you will start to see the improvements from your nose surgery. Rhinoplasty healing is divided into 2 phases. The initial surgical recovery outlined above followed by a slow process of healing and scar modulation that can take up to 2 years in some patients.
Swelling tends to be much worse near the eyes and you can better manage the situation by applying cold compression in the affected area. Apply cold compression up to 3 times a day for about 30 minutes. Whatever you do, don’t do the same directly on your nose which can remain extremely sensitive for weeks. It also helps to keep the head in an elevated position especially when you are sleeping to help reduce the swelling. If necessary, you can take pain medications as prescribed by your plastic surgeon.
Secondary or Revisional surgery may need to be performed in order to finalise the outcome of Rhinoplasty. This is far more common in Men and Women with thick oily (sebaceous) skin. The best time to perform this is around 12-18 months after the first operation.
Revisional surgery is complex and requires an extremely experienced surgeon. The problems that can be addressed include:
1. Excessive nasal length
2. Round tip & Polybeak deformity
3. Supratip scarring
4. Residual hump or Excessive hump removal
5. Crooked nose
There are many inherent issues with secondary or tertiary nasal revision. The success of this operation is dependent on what your surgeon has done to the structure of the nose. If the damage done in the first operation is great then the result of revisional surgery can be limited. In some cases, the surgeon will use Ear cartilage or cartilage from the Rib in order to build all the structures destroyed by the primary surgeon. Bone use is no longer recommended in revisional surgery.
