I can't stand my nose anymore
Joao 32 ans, Coach sportif, Madrid
Since i was a teenager, i’ve been self-conscious about my nose. Because of it, i’m not confident and i have a bad self-esteem. I’m 32 years old and i have problems with relationships so i decided surgery was the best way to change that.
Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, is designed to balance the proportions of the different parts of the nose : the tip, the profile, width, with the rest of the face (forehead, chin and cheekbones).
WHO IS IT FOR ?
When the shape or size of the nose causes psychological distress, rhinoplasty is used to address the issue permanently. Patients asking for this procedure usually complain about the size of their nose, the nasal bump, the lack of definition of the bridge, the lack of projection of the tip and the size of the nostrils.
During the procedure, the surgeon reshapes the cartilage and the bone lying under the skin. In most cases, the incision used to access these tissues is located in the nostrils, which makes it completely hidden. In other cases, an incision in the columella can be necessary to carry out the procedure. This second approach is used with complex cases such as secondary rhinoplasty performed to correct an unsuccessful previous nose surgery. Each part that composes the nose can be precisely reshaped. When the septum of the nose is deviated and causes difficulty breathing, the procedure can restore proper breathing function. The tip of the nose can be improved by reshaping it’s cartilage ; it can be reduced or augmented in size. The width and height of the nose can be reduced by two lateral ostetomies and the nostrils can be reduced by excising skin sections.
Rhinoplasty patients are usually hospitalized for 1 night.
The procedure is carried out under general anesthesia.

Packing of the nose can cause discomfort during the first day following the procedure. Swelling and bruising under the eyes will start subsiding after a few days. When the deviated septum is treated, silicone splints might have to stay in place during 10 to 14 days. The final result usually appears after 3 months, although it might take longer for the swelling to completely disappear.
