The current trend in rhinoplasty surgery in Australia is all about the “natural” look away from the 80′ s “operated look” seen in so many Hollywood stars. Surgery of the nose is currently the most common of all plastic and cosmetic surgery operations. The ideal patients for a rhinoplasty are those looking for an improvement in the way they look, not seeking perfection. Rhinoplasty may be performed by itself, or commonly combined with breast surgery in younger patients or Facelift/eyelift surgery in more mature patients.
The surgeons at Gold Coast Rhinoplasty are Renowned Specialist Plastic Surgeon with an interest in Rhinoplasty for cosmetic and functional purposes. Dr Ben has performed around 730 cosmetic Rhinoplasty cases. Dr Bright completes both cosmetic Rhinoplasty as well as functional Septoplasty and also Turbinoplasty for breathing problems.
The ideal age for Rhinoplasty is in between 20-40. Between the ages of 16-20 the surgeon needs 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 may possibly be affected by excessive nasal tip swelling primarily if the patient has very thick, oily and sebaceous skin.

Remember, rhinoplasty is a very difficult operation.
Recovery Post Nose Job Surgery:
During the first two to three days immediately after Rhinoplasty surgery, your face will certainly feel puffed up, the nose could ache, and you may experience headaches. There will be swelling and bruising around your eyes, reaching a peak after four days. Some patients also get very swollen lips and cheeks including difficulty smiling. Each these symptoms will subside within 3 weeks of the nose procedure. By the end of one week all nasal packing, dressings, splints and stitches from the Rhinoplasty should be removed. You will feel significantly better in your second week of recovery.
The most unpleasant part of the recovery following 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. Anticipate a little swelling around your eyes for the nextseveral weeks. As the swelling comes down, you will start to see the improvements from your nose surgery. Rhinoplasty recovery is divided into 2 phases. The primary surgical recovery described above followed by a slow process of healing and scar modulation that can take up to 2 years in some patients.
Swelling is often much worse close to the eyes Try applying cold compression in the affected area. Apply cold ice packs up to 3 times each day for around 30 minutes. Do not apply ice directly on your nose . It also helps to keep your head in an elevated position especially when you are sleeping to help decrease the swelling. If necessary, you may take pain medications.
Sometimes a previous nose job or rhinoplasty did not go well, or achieved the desired look. In these cases, you may wish to perform a rhinoplasty revision. Secondary or Revisional surgery frequently need to be done in order 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 remedied 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 lots of inherent issues with secondary or tertiary nasal revision. The results of this operation depends on what your original surgeon has done to the structure of the nose. If the damage done in the initial operation is great then the result of revisional surgery is hindered.
