Many people are unhappy with the shape of their nose. It may be something as little as a small hump on the bridge, or perhaps nasal tip that is too wide or bulbous. Then again, it may be the result of a previous injury, which has left the nose crooked and you may have difficulty breathing through one side.
Whatever the problem, virtually all parts can be reshaped and changed in size with the help of a rhinoplasty surgeon. The hump can be removed, the tip can be made finer, the nose can be straightened and breathing improved. It is possible to make it shorter, longer or narrower, but our Sydney surgeons can give the tip more definition and correct wide nostrils.
It is obviously important that you have a good idea of exactly what it is about the nose that concerns you and how you would like to see it changed. However, even if you do not, different nasal shapes can be visualised with the help of computer imaging, allowing you to communicate your concerns with the rhinoplasty surgeon.
Nasal reshaping surgery, or rhinoplasty, usually requires a general anaesthetic and you may stay in hospital overnight, although day surgery is often also appropriate.
Is rhinoplasty for me?
Assuming you are in good health, there is no upper age limit undergoing nasal surgery. Our Sydney rhinoplasty surgeons can alter the nasal profile, change the angle between the nose and upper lip and reshape the nasal tip. Alterations can be made to decrease the nasal bridge and reduce the size of the nose.
The results of rhinoplasty enhance the balance between the nose and other facial features. Sometimes certain breathing problems related to the internal nasal structures can be corrected at the same time as nose reshaping is performed by a surgeon.
At our Sydney clinic, Dr Mark Kohout will be able to help you determine whether these structures should be modified along with reshaping your nose, and will inform you of all costs involved.
Any of the following conditions may make you a good candidate for rhinoplasty:
|Rhinoplasty (nose reshaping)||$5,900||This cost assumes top hospital cover with a private fund. If fund cover does not apply in your situation, plan for additional costs of around $3,000. If any internal nasal surgery is required, such as septoplasty or turbinectomy, this will carry an additional cost.|
