…. the only way to permanently
re-shape your nose!
Surgical Rhinoplasty rates as one of the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures for various reasons, the main ones being to improve appearance and confidence. In fact, improving confidence is the number one motivator for a nose job!
Moreover, if you also have nasal breathing difficulties, these can be corrected at the same time.
The single major advantage of reshaping the nose surgically – as opposed to the popular practice of trying to camouflage the deformity temporarily with dermal fillers – is that the deformity will be gone permanently irrespective of whether it is the result of a birth deformity or injury.
Apart from the boost to confidence by giving the nose a normal appearance, some lesser-known additional benefits of a well-performed surgical rhinoplasty include improvement of the nasal airway, the restoration of facial symmetry, and even sometimes a reduction in snoring!
Common Rhinoplasty Corrections
- Removing a nasal hump
- Improving the shape of the tip
- Changing the shape of the bridge
- Increasing or decreasing the overall size of the nose
- Correcting asymmetry
- Straightening a crooked nose
- Repairing damage caused by injury
- Correcting a birth defect
A Rhinoplasty can also be combined with a Septoplasty, then called a Rhino-Septoplasty, if you have a deviated nasal septum that is causing you difficulty breathing through your nose.
How is it done?
- To be a good candidate for surgery, you must be in good general health.
- All Surgical Rhinoplasty procedures are performed under General Anaesthesia in a licensed Hospital with a Specialist Anaesthetist in constant attendance. One overnight stay is required.
- Rhinoplasty is performed as either a:
- Closed Rhinoplasty where incisions are hidden inside the nose; or an
- Open Rhinoplasty where an incision is made across the columella, the narrow strip of tissue that separates the nostrils.
- Through these incisions, the skin that covers the nasal bones and cartilages is gently raised, allowing access to reshape the structure of the nose.
- Gauze packing and a nasal splint will need to be worn for a few days to support the nose as it begins to heal.

If you do qualify for a Medicare Rebate, and you also have Private Hospital Insurance, a variable portion of the Hospital Fees can also be claimed depending on your Fund and your level of Cover.
