The current trend in rhinoplasty surgery here in Australia is the “natural” look far removed from the 80′ s “operated look” found in countless Hollywood stars. Surgery of the nose is one of the most favoured of all plastic and cosmetic surgery procedures. The ideal patients for a rhinoplasty are those men and women who are searching for an improvement in the way they look, not seeking perfectness. Rhinoplasty may be performed by itself, or commonly combined with breast enlargement in younger patients or Facelift/eyelift surgery in more mature patients.

The physicians at Brisbane Rhinoplasty are Renowned Specialist Plastic Surgeon with an interest in Rhinoplasty for cosmetic and functional purposes. Dr Ben has carried out around 750 cosmetic Rhinoplasty cases. Dr Bright conducts both cosmetic Rhinoplasty and also 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 Brisbane Nose Surgery: The Modern Approach

Rhinoplasty: Originates 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 most common of all plastic surgery procedures.

The current Australian look for 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 discuss your desires clearly with your Brisbane Rhinoplasty specialist doctor at the time of your initial nose surgery consultation.

Suitable Candidates for Rhinoplasty or Nose Job Surgery

The best patients for Rhinoplasty are looking for more balance in the way they look, not those searching for downright perfection.

1. Get rid of the hump or the bump over the bridge of your nose.
2. Improve a crooked nose by re-aligning your nasal bones. 3. Improve the angle between the nose and the upper lip.
4. Shorten or lengthen the length of the nose.
4. Increase or decrease nasal tip projection.
5. Narrow the nostrils if required. Straighten the deviated septum hence improving breathing.
6. Reduce the bulk of air filters (turbinates) hence improving your breathing even further.

How Long Does Surgery Take?

Primary Rhinoplasty normally takes two hours, although more complex nose surgery operations may take longer. Revisional surgery takes longer and patients will want to have different levels of expectations.

Choosing the Best Rhinoplasty Surgeon

Rhinoplasty is one of the most challenging operations in cosmetic surgery. In Australia Rhinoplasty is performed by cosmetic surgeons. Your ideal choice in choosing a surgeon is word of mouth, personal before and after photos, and your personal research about rhinoplasty. You should get cost estimations of Brisbane 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 immediately after Rhinoplasty surgery, your face is going to feel puffy, your nose may likely ache, and you may experience a dull headache. There will be swelling and bruising around your eyes, reaching a peak after four days. A few patients also get very swollen lips and cheeks and have difficulty smiling. All 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 right after the Rhinoplasty operation 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 decrease, 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 considerably worse near the eyes and you can better manage the situation by applying cold compression to the affected area. Apply cold ice packs up to 3 times a day for approximately 30 minutes. Do not do the same directly on your nose . It also helps to keep the head in an elevated position especially when you are sleeping to help decrease the swelling. If necessary, you can take pain medications.

Rhinoplasty Revision

Sometimes a previous nose job or rhinoplasty surgery did not go well, or achieved the desired look. In these cases, you may wish to perform a rhinoplasty revision. Secondary or Revisional surgery may well need to be done to achieve your desired look. 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 resolved include:
1. Excessive nasal length
2. Round tip & Polybeak defect
3. Nose tip scarring
4. Residual hump or Excessive hump removal
5. Crooked nose

There actually are many fundamental problems with secondary or tertiary nasal revision. The success of this operation depends on what your original cosmetic surgeon has done to the structure of the nose. Sometimes the damage done is so great that the result of revisional surgery is limited. In many 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.
