The nose is considered the centrepiece of the face, and its form and size play a significant role in defining the overall appearance of the face. But, a broad or bulbous nose or a nose that is not to your liking can ruin the sharp features of your face. Similarly, a crooked or deviated nose might lead to difficulty in breathing. Be it a cosmetic or functional reason a crooked nose can be easily fixed with a simple nose surgery called Rhinoplasty.
Rhinoplasty is a popular cosmetic surgery that has been helping people achieve the nose of their dreams for decades. With modern advancements in technology and techniques, it has become safer, more effective, and more accessible.
If you're looking for the best rhinoplasty surgeon in Hyderabad, Eternelle Aesthetics has you covered. Our specialists offer customised treatment to each patient based on their concerns and goals.
What is Rhinoplasty?
Rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a "nose job" is a surgical procedure that involves modifying the bone and cartilage of the nose to change its shape and size. This may include removing or reshaping bone and cartilage, adding grafts or implants, or adjusting the position of the nasal structures.
The treatment is often performed to improve the nose's aesthetics, but it may also be done to correct functional problems like breathing difficulties. Our skilled plastic surgeons combine scientific knowledge and artistic talent to achieve effective and long-lasting results that consider your skin type and overall facial feature.
Problems that can be fixed through rhinoplasty surgery
Some people may need it to repair their noses to breathe properly or fix a birth defect after an injury. Others may opt for it to improve the appearance of their nose.
Here are some of the issues that can be addressed through Rhinoplasty surgery:
Correcting the appearance of the nose such as a broad or blunt nose
Fixing a round, bulbous nose that may create a disproportionate facial appearance
Correcting a deviated nose that may cause breathing difficulties
Addressing breathing problems such as snoring, deviated septum, or inferior turbinate hypertrophy caused by improper nose functionality
Fixing a nasal fracture caused by an accident or trauma, including those resulting from playing sports.
What to expect during Rhinoplasty surgery?
Here's what you can expect during the procedure:
You will either be given general anaesthesia or local anaesthesia with intravenous sedation. This will depend on your surgeon's preference and the complexity of the procedure.
The surgeon will make incisions inside your nostrils (closed rhinoplasty) or across the base of your nose (open rhinoplasty). The choice of the incision will depend on the type of procedure needed to achieve the desired result.
The surgeon will lift the skin covering the bones and cartilage of your nose to access the underlying structure.
He/She may remove, add, or rearrange the underlying bone and cartilage to create the desired shape or fix a deviated septum.
After reshaping your nose, your surgeon will place the skin back in its new position and use small stitches to secure it in place.
The procedure typically takes between one and three hours and is usually done in an outpatient department. Hence, you can go home on the same day.
Post-Surgery Care Instructions
After the procedure, it's important to follow proper post-surgery care instructions to ensure proper healing and minimise any potential complications. Here are some important points to keep in mind:
Rest and Elevate Your Head: After the surgery, you'll need to rest in bed with your head elevated higher than your chest. This will help in decreasing the risk of bleeding and swelling.
Internal Bandages and Splints: Internal bandages will usually remain in place for one to seven days after surgery. A splint may also be taped to your nose for protection and support, usually for about a week.
Bleeding and Drainage: For a few days after the treatment or after removing the bandage, some bleeding and discharge of mucus and old blood may occur, which is normal. To absorb drainage, your doctor will put a small piece of gauze secured in place with tape under the nose. Change the gauze as directed by the doctor.
Avoid Certain Activities: Avoid intense physical activities such as aerobics and jogging for several weeks after surgery. While you have bandages on your nose, it is recommended to take baths instead of showers. Do not blow your nose. Try to sneeze or cough with your mouth open.
Diet and Hygiene: Consume high-fibre food such as vegetables and fruits to avoid constipation. Constipation can cause you to push too strongly, putting strain on the surgical site. Brush your teeth carefully to avoid moving your upper lip. Wear front-fastening clothes and avoid pulling clothing over your head. Use SPF 30 sunscreen when outside to prevent discolouration on the skin of the nose.
Recovery Time: It is common to experience temporary swelling and bruising around the eyelids for 2-3 weeks following the surgery. The swelling of the nose may last longer, up to a year in some cases. To reduce the swelling, it is advisable to limit your sodium intake. Applying ice or cold packs on the nose should be avoided.

The cost of the treatment is entirely determined by the complexity of the surgery and may differ from patient to patient.
It begins at around Rs. and can go up to Rs.
