When rhinoplasty is required


Rhinoplasty (derived from the Greek words “rhinos” — nose and “plastika” — to shape) is a surgical procedure that involves altering the shape, proportions, and dimensions of the nose.

Commonly known as a “nose job,” “nasal surgery,” or “nose reshaping,” rhinoplasty is undertaken to achieve desired appearances or rectify defects arising from trauma, congenital issues.

Rhinoplasty employs specialized tools and techniques to ensure precision in interventions. Microscopic and endoscopic procedures allow surgeons to minimize disruption to surrounding tissues, enabling patients to resume their regular routines shortly after surgery.

At the Valikhnovski Surgery Institute, we offer solutions for a range of concerns, including: Get acquainted

    Main methods of treatment

    Surgeons at the Valikhnovski Surgery Institute in Kyiv are proficient in performing a wide array of surgeries, including those related to rhinoplasty. Get acquainted

    Сlosed rhinoplasty - this prevalent technique involves incisions within the nose, granting access to nasal structures.

    Open rhinoplasty - a less common approach, in which the surgeon creates an incision externally on the nose to access nasal structures

    Classic Rhinoplasty - the surgeon employs conventional mechanical tools for the procedure.

    Endoscopic rhinoplasty - special optical equipment, such as an endoscope, is used by the doctor to minimize damage to surface tissues during the operation.

    Piezo-rhinoplasty (piezo-ultrasonic plastic surgery)- this technique employs an ultrasonic piezo knife (piezotome, Woodpecker Surgic Smart ultrasonic piezoelectric scaler) to predominantly target hard tissues like bones and cartilage, without causing harm to delicate adjacent tissues.

    The choice of rhinoplasty technique depends on the complexity of the case. Generally, closed rhinoplasty is employed for mild cases, while open rhinoplasty is utilized for more intricate scenarios.

    Preparations for rhinoplasty adhere to general principles for surgical interventions: Get acquainted

    Inform the doctor about any medication use, and follow their guidance (adjustments to doses or schedules may be necessary).

    In the days leading up to the operation, adopt a light diet and maintain proper hydration. Address constipation with laxatives or enemas, and abstain from alcohol consumption. This ensures the body's suitable and predictable response to anesthesia and medications.

    Refrain from eating 6-12 hours before the surgery. Abstain from drinking, chewing gum, or smoking for 2-4 hours before the operation to prevent the passage of stomach contents into the respiratory system during anesthesia.

    On the day of the operation, take a shower and employ an enema to empty the intestines. This helps prevent involuntary defecation due to sphincter relaxation during anesthesia.

    Just prior to the operation:

    - remove other items (contact lenses, hearing aids, jewelry) to avoid accidental injury or damage.
    - clear cosmetic products (makeup, nail polish, artificial nails) from the body to facilitate visual assessment and automated medical equipment registration.
    - empty the bladder and, if necessary, the intestines, to prevent involuntary release during anesthesia.
    - change into the special clothing provided by the clinic.

    Furthermore, additional preparatory measures may be undertaken based on individual characteristics and surgical specifics.

    How facial surgery operations take place


    The main stages:

    img img
    • 1
      The patient is either brought to the operating room

      either on a gurney or by walking. Upon entering the airlock room, the patient wears a medical cap and shoe covers to prevent microorganisms from entering the sterile environment of the operating room.

    • 2
      A dedicated surgical team,

      tailored to the requirements of each operation, conducts the procedures.

    • 3
      The patient is positioned on the operating table,

      with the specific body orientation determined by the procedure's nature. The patient is secured to the table using specialized straps.

    • 4
      The anesthetist's nurse performs

      a vein puncture on the hand, installing a catheter for drug administration. Electrodes are affixed to the body to monitor the heart's electrical activity, while a tonometer cuff is placed on the shoulder to monitor blood pressure. Additionally, a sensor measures oxygen levels in the blood. These measures collectively enable continuous monitoring of the patient's condition throughout anesthesia and surgery.

    • 5
      The subsequent steps

      of the operation are contingent on the precise objectives and involve the specific area of the body subject to intervention. The approach aligns with the chosen surgical tactics and techniques, with attention to the distinctive requirements of each case



    Postoperative period and rehabilitation

    Following the surgery, the patient regains consciousness in the postoperative ward. If deemed necessary, oxygen can be administered through a delicate tube to ensure the body receives an adequate oxygen supply. A vigilant nurse will meticulously oversee the patient’s condition and, if required, administer medications as previously discussed with the doctor.

    Before the patient is discharged, the doctor will conduct a thorough examination of the areas where the intervention took place. This examination serves to finalize the strategy for ongoing rehabilitation. Furthermore, the doctor will provide supplementary guidance to support the patient’s recovery and prevent any recurrence of issues.

      When Should You Consult a Rhinoplasty Surgeon?

      Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure aimed at correcting the shape and size of the nose. You might consider consulting a rhinoplasty surgeon if you experience the following symptoms:

      • Prolonged nasal breathing difficulties.
      • Recurrent sinusitis (inflammation of the paranasal sinuses).
      • Chronic nocturnal cough or snoring.
      • Dissatisfaction with the size and shape of the nose.

      If you have one or more of these symptoms, it is recommended to discuss them with your trusted doctor. They will assess your condition and help determine if rhinoplasty is the suitable treatment option.

      Rhinoplasty Procedure

      Rhinoplasty is conducted under general anesthesia. During the surgery, the surgeon makes incisions inside the nose to access the targeted nasal structures. The surgeon then proceeds to correct these structures before closing the incisions.

      Postoperative Care for Rhinoplasty

      Following rhinoplasty, patients may experience swelling and bruising around the nose area. Pain relief medication might be prescribed, and physical activity should be limited for several weeks post-surgery.

      Rhinoplasty Surgery Guarantee

      The rhinoplasty warranty encompasses implants, medical consumables, and equipment. The delivery of surgical treatment services is assured in accordance with contemporary medical advancements, the high level of proficiency exhibited by the clinic’s specialists, and the clinic’s technical resources. The ultimate clinical outcome is influenced by a multitude of factors extending beyond the physician and the clinic, including individual body traits, lifestyle, environmental conditions, and stress-related factors.

      Preparation and Complications

      Preparation for rhinoplasty surgery entails a preliminary examination and consultation with the surgeon, comprehensive assessment involving photo and video analysis of appearance, anthropometry, and consultation with related specialists if required. The pre-operative preparation principles do not substantially differ from those generally adhered to in surgery.
      Potential complications from rhinoplasty encompass both general surgical risks (bleeding, thrombosis, infections, and inflammation) and those specific to the field (postoperative defects, bone non-union, epileptic syndrome). Diligent preparation, a proficient and seasoned medical team, advanced technology, and seamless coordination among clinic staff collectively minimize the likelihood of complications.

      Contraindications to Rhinoplasty Surgery

      Contraindications for rhinoplasty surgery involve conditions in which the severity significantly heightens the surgical treatment risks. These may include infectious, mental, and gastrointestinal diseases, among others.
