What is nose surgery or rhinoplasty

Nose surgery or rhinoplasty is one of the most sought-after procedures in Džepina Clinic. Patients decide to have their nose corrected because the appearance of the nose is the most defining characteristic of the face. An oversized and irregular nose gives the face unnecessary sharpness and distorts facial features.

The appearance of the face is largely determined by the shape and form of the nose as the central part of the face. The symmetry of the face depends on the nose so that even the slight alteration the shape of the nose can greatly improve one’s appearance. Rhinoplasty has a significant impact on self-confidence and can greatly improve body image.

Who are the candidates

Candidates for nose surgery are persons who are not satisfied with the aesthetic appearance of their nose, its size and shape. Candidates are also persons who have congenital medical problems, or have problems resulting from injury or deviation of the septum. In such patients, nose surgery restores proper breathing function. In addition to solving medical problems, the aesthetic aspect of the nose can be corrected at the same time. Candidates for this operation are patients who have completed the growth of the nose, in girls the age is between 15-16 years, and in boys 17-18 years.

If you are dissatisfied with the look of your nose and/or its functionality, take the first step towards your new look. When you arrive for a consultation in Džepina Clinic, the doctor will make a detailed examination and provide you with a diagnosis. After that, an individual surgical plan is created, that represents the best solution to your situation so that you will soon enjoy your new look. Before the procedure, the doctor goes through every step with the patients before, during and after the procedure so that the patients know what to expect.


The procedure

Nose surgery is a procedure performed under general or local anaesthesia and patients do not feel any pain during the procedure. Rhinoplasty can be performed with incisions inside the nose so that they are invisible from the outside or the incision that is made between nostrils. Once incisions are made where necessary, depending on the patient’s case, the next step is to reshape the cartilage and bone to give the nose a new, improved shape. The incisions are closed with surgical sutures, and a plaster and plastic splint are placed on the outside to create an immobilisation and those are removed after 5 to 7 days. Tampons are placed in the nose on both sides in order to keep the shape and maintain the stability of the nasal septum, and they are removed after a few days, after which care should be taken when blowing the nose.

Dr. Džepina takes into account all the factors important for achieving the ideal appearance of each patient’s nose. It is possible to change the angle between the nose and upper lip for better symmetry of the whole face. The doctor decides which is the best way to reshape the nose depending on the specifics of the case of each patient, the thickness and type of skin, age and desires to meet the aesthetic and functional criteria.


Recovery after surgery

Nose surgery is one of the most complicated and delicate of all facial surgeries. The patient goes home after the operation, and there is no need to stay in the hospital. Before and after the procedure, the patient receives instructions to make the recovery as easy and comfortable as possible. Recovery is individual so that some have less swelling and bruising after the procedure for a short time, and some take a few days longer, which is helped by cold packs that reduce pressure and swelling. In case of pain, pain medications are recommended for patients.

The final appearance of the nose is visible when the recovery process on the outside and inside is complete. Nose surgery has very small risks, which the doctor explains in detail to each patient at the initial consultation. Patients can return to all social activities soon, but caution is advised and avoid strenuous activities for three to six weeks after surgery.

Patient experiences

After nose correction, patients’ quality of life improves markedly in all its most important aspects like: social functioning, emotional role and mental health state. More self-confidence stems  from satisfaction with your own reflection in the mirror. Improved appearance results in more relaxed interactions and thus greater security in the private and business spheres. More confident in themselves, patients after nose surgery are more successful social relationships.
