Rhinoplasty: The Procedure and its Benefits image

The patient undergoes some blood tests and ensures that they do not have any type of cold at the time of the surgery.

The patient must refrain from taking any medications that may cause blood thinning and delayed clotting, such as aspirin or ibuprofen, two weeks before the operation.

The patient must also quit smoking and all nicotine-containing products.

Abstinence from alcoholic beverages in the period preceding the surgical procedure by 7 days and also in the period following it is necessary.

The patient must refrain from consuming any food or beverages for at least 8 hours before the procedure.

Rhinoplasty is considered a minor procedure that does not require a long recovery period or convalescence.

The patient can leave the hospital the day after the procedure. However, recovery time may vary from person to person, so it is essential to follow the doctor's instructions after the procedure to ensure a healthy and speedy recovery, take the prescribed medication and avoid exposure to sunlight as much as possible.

After the procedure, the nose will look different and gradually change its shape as the swelling subsides, reaching its final shape within a period ranging from two weeks to 12 weeks.

Strenuous physical exercise should be avoided for at least three weeks after the procedure.

It is also important to keep the nasal splint dry in the week following the procedure until it is removed, and to avoid direct sunlight exposure in the weeks following the procedure until complete recovery.

It is important to ask your cosmetic surgeon questions about the procedure before undergoing it to ensure its feasibility and to understand potential complications.

Ask your doctor about their experience performing Rhinoplasty and their training in the techniques involved, as well as their record of previous results.


  •  Is the medical facility where the procedure will be performed fully equipped to handle rare emergencies and complications for this type of surgery?
  • Am I a good candidate for this procedure?
  • What is the expected recovery period according to the doctor?
  • What are the risks and complications that the doctor expects, and how can they be handled?

Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure used to modify the shape of the nose and improve its appearance. Rhinoplasty can help to correct various nose defects, such as reducing a large nose, correcting a deviated or crooked nose, or correcting a nose with deformities or irregularities in shape.


Rhinoplasty involves using different surgical techniques to modify the shape of the nose, which may include reducing or increasing the size of the nose, correcting structural deformities of the nose, or improving the shape of the cartilage in the nose. The Rhinoplasty procedure is performed under general anesthesia and requires a recovery period and healing time that can range from a few days to weeks depending on the type of procedure.

In simple Nose surgery, minor defects such as slight crookedness, excess size, or minor bends are addressed. In contrast, complex nose surgery requires more complicated and experienced surgical procedures. In these cases, modifying the internal tissues of the nose, such as altering the shape of the cartilage or modifying the bones, is required to address complex defects such as severe crookedness, previous surgical deformities, or chronic breathing problems.


In general, simple Nose surgery is a less complicated procedure and may have a shorter recovery time than complex nose surgery. However, complex nose surgery may achieve better results in improving the appearance and respiratory function of the nose, although it may require a longer recovery time after the surgery.

The specialized doctor performing the procedure first makes a small incision through the central part of the base of the nose (the columella), which allows the doctor to lift the entire skin above the nasal cartilage, thus providing access to the cartilage in the nasal bones. This enables the doctor to modify and reshape it and work on correcting all internal functions such as deviation and breathing problems, and then work on reshaping the nose and making it smaller by sculpting the nasal bone and raising the nasal tip to a degree that is in line with global beauty standards.

If the procedure aims to reduce the size of the nose, the doctor removes the excessively protruding cartilage at the tip of the nose, while in the case of enlarging the nose, the surgeon corrects some cavities on the bridge of the nose and widens the tip of the nose to make it proportional to the rest of the facial features.


PIZO technology is a modern technique used in Rhinoplasty surgery to precisely identify the areas that need to be modified without damaging or causing any harm to the surrounding tissues. This technology works by using a Piezoelectric device that utilizes high-frequency ultrasonic waves to produce low-vibration effects, allowing for accurate and safe removal and compression of bones.


The device is gently moved along the nose, and its depth and shape are controlled using specialized sensitivity devices. This allows the surgeon to make precise adjustments and avoid any damage to surrounding tissues, thus reducing the recovery period and minimizing pain and swelling.
