The indication for rhinoplasty, or nose reshaping surgery is the desire to patient. However, there are absolute indications for such operations. It is congenital and acquired deformities. The birth deformities that are recognized, and the condition of the nose, are pathologies such as cleft lip or cleft palate. Acquired malformations or defects are mainly due to trauma.


  • This is a chronic disease such as diabetes, heart disease, liver, asthma and drug allergy. In these cases, the person is offered to treat the underlying disease, and then proceed to rhinoplasty.
  • In addition, an absolute contraindication is mental instability of the patient's mental illness.

The optimum age for such an operation — from 18 to 40 years. However, the lower age limit can be slightly moved. For example, in cases where the girl was formed, and the doctor is clear that major changes in the person is not going to happen, you can allow rhinoplasty. Typically, requests to do the surgery before 18 years of age are associated with a change in the patient's personal life (marriage, entering the university) and recognized by doctors.

After 40 years, doctors almost never agree on rhinoplasty. The fact that in this age already begins skin aging, its elasticity decreases, broken metabolism. This can result in postoperative strain — Rhinoplasty is based on the change in the bones of the nose, on the basis of the new skin should "sit" (surgeons call this process a retraction). If the elasticity of the skin is broken, after the surgery, your nose will look unnatural, there may be additional strain and wrinkles. Furthermore, in this age rehabilitation period lasts much longer.

In the standard operation complete rehabilitation and healing of internal tissues occurs no earlier than 3-4 months. However, within two weeks after surgery and noseface are of the form, which will continue in the future.

Adverse effects

Rhinoplasty — a very serious surgery, plastic surgery is the aerobatics. In general, in Moscow there are about 300 plastic surgeons, and only 20-30 can make such a delicate operation fully and without undue complications.

Rare forms of complications after rhinoplasty can be a festering, up to sepsis, severe bleeding and even death.

Major side effects are:

  • Unfavorable for the patient form nose.
  • Worsening of breathing.
  • Adhesions.
  • Septal deviation.
  • Loss of smell.

According to statistics, 25-29% Nosov redesigns. The main reason for continuing claims — the patient is not satisfied with the shape of the nose. However, there are curious cases when patient requires the removal of the smallest, no subtle or invented them of changes and defects.

Virtually none of the survivors do not seek rhinoplasty in order to restore the original shape of the nose, even if the result was not as impressive as expected. Although it is reshaping the nose — the task is doable. However, it is associated with many difficulties. Rhinoplasty is usually performed to reduce congestion and need for reconstructive surgery or to take osteochondral material from the patient, or replace it with an artificial one.

How to see what the new nose?

Rhinoplasty, as such, there was a little more than 100 years ago, when the German surgeon Joseph has developed a method that is partly used up to now. Then the patients showed what would be their face after the operation in the figures. Later they began to make plaster models. There is now the possibility of computer simulation entity in which the patient may be up to a millimeter see a new face.

From what makes their noses?

New shape of the nose by the surgeon creates bones and cartilages of the patient, and using artificial materials, mainly silicone.


After surgery, patients show physical therapy, massage, antibiotics under medical supervision, immune stimulants, vitamins. With precise execution of such medical prescriptions, the probability of rejection is significantly reduced. However, rejection although rare, yet possible.

The patient should remember that it will have a lifetime take care not to injure the new nose, to prevent the development of sinusitis, infections in the nasopharynx, nasal bone because even after the most successful operation still will not be "complete".

Fashion on the nose

According to the surgeons on their noses, as in everything else, there is a fashion. Nowadays, it has become fashionable so-called "European noses", that is not long straight noses without hump, slightly upturned with a rather narrow wings and a thin bridge of the nose.

Previously fashionable and more interesting was the "Caucasian nose" — a thin, narrow, slightly aquiline. Unfortunately, even the owners of the "classic" noses tend to alter them.

The nose has changed, and will change if the person?

In recent years, the doctors are looking for rhinoplasty different look, approach to this complex operation. After all, beauty — is not only the beautiful shape of the nose or the shape of the face, and the harmony of the face as a whole. Very often, in order to achieve this harmony is necessary, for example, to push a little chin, to remove bags under the eyes and lips to increase or change their shape, lift the eyebrows. And if the age of the patient, the surgeon performing rhinoplasty may slightly tighten wrinkles, liposuction to the neck. In addition, together with rhinoplasty sometimes eliminate droopy ears.

Changed the nose, change the life

Almost always after successful operation to change the shape of the nose, the patients life has changed dramatically. New attractive appearance changes the relationship of man to himself, his psychology. Some of the patients before surgery so focused on their shortcomings, it prevents them from learning, careers, raise families. Often, patients with a form of the nose, change and work partner, etc.
